I bought this at Capitol Liquors in downtown Indy on a recent vacation. By the way, if you are in town, go there....

The smell of the brew is amazing...my nose is not in tune enough to tell you the fruits or whatever, but it just smells like a good strong brew. Taste-wise, the brew starts off nice and strong and then kinda mellows out over time. You can defintely taste the punch behind it, but it is a great tasting Imperial.

A great brew. I am happy I bought a couple more. A bit pricey for a bomber, but well worth it for those special occasions when you want something good.

Thanks to BDEE again for this one.
Poured into a snifter, extremely hazy but bright orange color, thick soapy off white heading, good lacing.

All grapefruit upfront, more of a tropical background of apricot, mango and pineapple towards the end. Slight floral and piney hop touch to finish up the nose.

Very much like the nose this has a very heavy citrus taste. Sweet candy like malts and a bit of a sugary hot alcohol kick in the second wave. Smooth finish.

Medium bodied,decent carbonation a little on the thicker, sugary sweet side of balance.

In the world of fantastic IIPA's this ranks somewhere in the middle.

Reviewed from notes; originally 7/29/11.

Pours a slightly hazy blonde color with two fingers of thick, white head.

Fruity and a bit catty with with some caramel malt.

Very fruity and grape-like taste with some mango and an aspirin-bitterness on the end.

Very smooth feel with a medium body and low carbonation.

A little rough at first, but becomes more palatable after it warms to room temperature.

Fresh from Three Floyds Poured into Duvel glass

A: Thick and frothy white head with good retention, hazy deep/dark golden color, good carbonation and lacing

S: Nice fresh hops, citrus/grapefruit, pine and white wine, some maltiness in there

T: Bitterness, definitely a palate dominator, grapefruit, a touch of sweetness in there somewhere, surprisingly balanced

M: Medium-bodied, good carbonation, creamy, spicy bitterness

O: Very good Imperial IPA, I think the label prepares you for what's to come, would recommend, have had before and will drink again

A - Pours a cloudy orange in color with an eggshell one finger head. Moderate lacing as I drink it down.

S - The nose smells like sweet citrus (pineapple and orange). Lots of malty backbone.

T - Hoppy and bitter! There is some malt present for balance. No real sweetness, just faint citrus tastes.

M - Great medium carbonation that coats the palette well and has a dry finish.

O - What a hoppy beer! If you prefer a balanced beer then this is not it. Scorch with hops is the name of the game here.
