As soon as you pop the top off this the hops come right at you. It poured out a dark red with a tall tan head that left streaks and rings of lace as it collapsed. Big citric hop notes with plenty of pine to go along with it. There is a big sweetness there as well as some ripe fruit notes and caramel malt competes with the giant hoppiness. No real alcohol comes out in the nose surprisingly. Taste is huge as well plenty of grapefruit and pine needle hops smacking you around with a nice bitterness. Dark ripe fruit notes balance it out a bit with some sweetness as does light caramel and light doughiness. Lots of stuff going on in the flavor and it all seems to come on strong. I think in a few months it might all meld together better which would really boost this to greatness. Ends with some bitter and sweet fruits. This definitely warms you up real quick with the first sip. Thick and almost syrupy with a bit of sticky sweetness going on. No lack of body here. Pretty damn drinkable with all things considered. Another great beer form 3 Floyds.

Blue wax to tulip.
A. Dark copper with amber hues. Cloudy. 2 finger egg shell head that retreats to a fine bubble rim. Nice laces.
S. Moderately fragrant. Big time floral hops w/ a citrus finish. This beast is certainly going to be a hoppy barley wine (big surprise).
T. A little sweet, a lot bitter. Strong hops flavor with a certain presence of barley wine = apples, plums, figs, malts, pears, and persimmons.
M. Very thick. High carbonation. Fairly smooth.
O. Very nice. This is certainly a 3F ale in respect tot the level of hops. Which are very high. This is a great ale to share. Very strong and very well crafted. I certainly recommend this ale.
