Poured into my FFF pint glass of course.

Pours almost completely transparent and golden amber in color. There is an inch of white head. Spotty lace.

The nose is fresh, grassy hops, lemon zest, some sweet malt, orange peel, and a touch of heat.

The flavors are assertively hoppy and bitter with an abundance of grassy, earthy hops. There is some citrus bite that adds to the bitterness. Some sweet, biscuit-like malt.

Mouthfeel is juicy and finishes dry.

Overall, good DIPA that is one I drink regularly. Tasty as hell when fresh.

received from robwestcott in beer and football fantasy football league.

a - poured a three-fingers thick tan head into a snifter that left great lacing and sheeting throughout. the body was a hazy orange-amber color; it looked dense.
s - big piney hops then some fruitiness comes through like apples, peaches, and apricots.
t - huge piney hops again with a grapefruit finish. very complex.
m - thick and coating, lip-smacking stickiness.
o - 3F is as good as it gets with DIPAs in my opinion and this one did not disappoint. i'm not sure how it isn't ranked higher in this category.

4.47/5  rDev +4.9%

Presentation: 22 oz. bomber bottle with no freshness date. Served at room temperature and poured into my Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass. Big thanks to AgentZero for this longtime want.

Appearance: Golden orange in color with a one finger, fizzy white head. The head subsides pretty quickly into the thinest of lacings around the edge.

Aroma: Mango, apricot, and grapefruit notes are all there. Definitely highlights the more tropical fruity notes from the hops here. Only a touch of pale malt. Nice balance.

Taste: Pineapple, mango, grapefruit and a touch of pine. Definitely more bitterness than the aroma, but the sweet hop notes really dominate (and that's a good thing in my opinion). The balance keeps it out of the realm of cloying sweetness.

Mouthfeel; Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Very crisp.

Overall, a really nice DIPA with great hop flavors and balance. Of all the 3 3Floyd's IPAs I've had (the other two being Apocalypse Cow and Dreadnaught), this was my favorite by a long shot. Highly recommended.
