A: Interesting, I did not know 3F was unfiltered. I poured half my 22oz bomber into a very cold glass, and got an extremely clear, mid amber-to light+ copper color, with less than 0.5 fingers of very fine head. When I poured the second half of my bomber into a (now) warm glass, I got very cloudy apricot/orange color with about 1.5 fingers of creamy, off-white/slightly beige head. In both cases the bubbles settled down into a thin film very quickly (less than a minute) inviting me to imbibe.
S: Smells very big. First pour had bits of sweet/sour grapefruits, grasses, malty breads, and tons of hops. My nose is a bit stuffed, but it still smells big. Second pour still smells big, but there are more sweets/malts than the first time.
T: Woaaah hops. First pour started with a muted sour/sweet start (less than it smells) but was quickly overtaken by light, biscuity malts. It finishes with big damp, sticky, piney hops. The second pour had a more pronounced apricot/grapefruit start, with the same malty and hoppy finish. Neither pour had any hints of alcohol at 9.00% abv.
M: Despite a pretty decent sheen on the liquid, it remains medium bodied, comparable to a heavier single IPA. Also fairly quick through the mouth (consistent with the body.) It's still an IIPA, but a little less tiring than others.
O: Great brew, and a great brewery. 3Floyd's gets a lot of craft-brew love, and they deserve it. Not my favorite 3F brew, but still a great DIPA. I just wish they distributed to my area :-(

A- Hazy deep golden with a 1 finger white head. Unfiltered look is so inviting.
S- Lemon, orange zest, slight vegatation. Candied pale malt body. Moderate aromatics
T and M- Chewy almost. Chalky and sweet. Reminds me some of Two Hearted. Slightly dry, but no cringe bitterness. Body much to heavy for the style. Kills the drinkability.
O- okay. Not the best effort from FFF
