4.49/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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 :-(

Big boy served in a DFH IPA glass.

A - Pours a cloudy burnt orange with one finger of white head. Average retention with nice lacing.

S - Citrus and apricots jump right out followed by pine, honey bread, sweet alcohol.

T - Pine, citrus, and floral hops, bitter up front, there's a tangy citrus/fruit note in there that is very pronounced. Lots of apricot with spicy tropical fruit gaining ground as it warms. Spearmint shows up along with spicy greens. Light but sturdy malts underneath blend right in added a candy sweetness. Pine and citrus continue with a peppery bitterness but the bitterness dies down toward the finish.

M - Moderate creamy carbonation, light side of medium body,

The yeast throws out some odd esters and the bitterness is all upfront, dying gradually toward the finish. Heavy spearmint really and spicy greens really add to the diversity of this beer.
I like that this isn't the(run of the mill)DIPA. There's a mix of flavors that make this stand out among it's peers. Try to get your hands on one of these.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Cloudy and hazy golden orange. Three finger, foamy, off-white head starts atop this one. This eventually calms,but keeps about a 1/4" cap the entire time.very good lacing.

Not as aggressive as I assumed it would be. Actually fairly light in the nose. Get pine right away before fruitier notes show up. Apricot, green grapes, and some mango.

Almost identical to the nose. A little more of a floral presence shows up. Bready malts balance it out well enough. Medium bodied and very crisp. Fairly clean finish with only a mild pine lingering effect.

Rather enjoyed it and would recommend.

4.25/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into 22oz snifter; hazy golden-orange with a fizzy/fluffy medium-thick white head that fades into a puck of foam which then slowly sinks, leaving a few chunks of lacing.
Smell is spicy pine and herbal hops, a bit of booze, some slight tropical fruits.
Taste is slightly sweet bready malt, then a slam of spicy pine/herbal hops that demolish all in their wake, leaving some slight sticky sweetness crawling towards the light with its legs blown off, before finally expiring in bitterness.
Mouthfeel is good, medium with nice carbonation.
Overall, although lately I've been more in the mood for citrusey/fruity IPAs/DIPAs, this is a great one if you have a grudge against your palate. Piney, bitter, drinkable for 9% although the flavor makes it a sipper anyway...a nice big, bitter DIPA.

Arctic Panzer Wolf on tap at Country Boy Brewpub in KY.
Ever so slightly hazy amber with a head of moderate size and durability that leaves some sticky lacing. Pungent hoppy aroma with a more refined and palatable taste. More sweet malt here than the nose suggests (a good thing): so much that the huge hop hit finishes with only moderate bitterness. Smooth with partially hidden alcohol.

22oz bomber into a snifter...

A: Orange-gold; cream, half-finger head; mix of haze / floaties in the mix; I always expect a double IPA to be darker for some reason.

S: Citrus rind; cracker malts; white pepper; nice raw citrus aroma.

T: Dry, bready malt flavor; clean maltiness; citrus hop / orange and grapefruit rind.

M: Medium-full mouthfeel; moderate carbonation; nice feel and texture for a double IPA.

O: A very nice, drinkable DIPA; not overly complex, but very tasty and satisfying!

22 ounce bottle into signature teku glass, no bottle dating. Pours very hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Moderate soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big orange zest, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, pineapple, peach, mango, floral, grass, light pine, light honey, and floral earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops with a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, lemon zest, pineapple, peach, mango, floral, grass, honey, light pine, and floral earthiness. Slight floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, peach, mango, floral, grass, light pine, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hop flavors; with a great bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly slick and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic DIPA as expected. Big hop flavor complexity and balance with moderate malts; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

Pours like grapefruit juice, which I love. Cloudy with a bunch of lovely yeasty bits floating around the glass, eventually settling onto the sides of glass near the bottom.
Smell is malt, a cool, floral - herbal note reminiscent of gin, which I love, and a woody note. Great balance and great complexity.
Taste is rich and complex. Malt, wood, herbal, hops, citrus, the whole gang is here. And playing well together. Molto bene.
Medium plus bodied, lighter carbonation. Warming and smooth, rich and delicious. I'm pissed I only got one bomber. Damn me!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: nice deep orange color. Pretty hazy, almost opaque. Two fingers head that leaves a little lacing. Head is offwhite to tan

Smell: toasty malts dominate a bit. But a nice hop medley of citrus and a touch of pine

Taste: quite complex. The maltiness is there but no where near dominate. Hops are strong. Citrusy and sometimes piney. The taste can come off a number of ways from sweet fruits to bitter pine to a mixture of the two and more. It's pretty tasty overall. Alcohol is present in a weaker but noticeable way

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lighter for a imperial ipa. Strong bitterness, but the right kind you want in a hoppy beer

Overall: great beer. Makes a reach for my favorite iipa (alchemy hour) but falls short, not by too much. The toasted malt character works well with the complexity of the hops.

Three Floyds Arctic Panzer Wolf

10 oz tapper at Benno's in West Allis, WI. Served chilled...

A) Golden Amber... Small head fizzled to a dusting. Nice amount of lacing. Nice looking brew...

S) Zesty citrus aroma, white grapefruit in particular. Pleasant tropical fruit aroma comes through as well.

T) The nose finds a balance of bitterness and sweetness. The taste isn't quite as balanced, but it is bitterly delightful. Citrus rind and sharp pine. Just a little hint of green onion. A little wave of sweetness to close. The alcohol is was very well hidden.

M) Medium body with moderate carbonation. Bitterness coats the palate, leaving you needing another sip pronto. Nice finish....

O) Highly enjoyable... Glad to have it on tap. I still prefer Dreadnaught, and Permanent Funeral, but this was damn good too.

Pours a mostly clear straw blond with good carbonation. Two to three fingers of white fluffy head and excellent retention and decent lacing.

Smell is hops galore. Very good citrus smell, and a bit of pine and earthiness.

Taste is bitter hoppiness up front, getting smoother in the back. Lots of grapefruit and a lot of earthy hoppiness.

Closer to the full bodied side. Very drinkable for 9%, hides alcohol well.

Solid beer. Thanks for the trade Hombrepalo

A: It pours a hazy unfiltered bright orange with a little floating sediment.

S: Bright orange, caramel and grapefruit open this thing up. Then comes a touch of sweet pineapple, cantaloupe and more sweet tropical fruit. Subtle sweet cherry. Traces of alcohol burn the nostrils.

T: Huge orange! Blood red orange and even freshly squeezed orange juice. Sweet grapefruit; very juicy. This is tropical but in kind of a different way. A bitter dry pine needle finish. Apricot, and a not quite ripe mango finish this unbalanced beast off.

M: Surprisingly light for everything thats going on here. Medium bodied with some nice springy carbonation.

O: This is definitely an unbalanced beast but it is extremely effective. Great tropics with orange as the standout flavor. Subtle sweetness with a great hop bitter bite that sneaks up on you. / 94

Bought for $10 right at the Three Floyds Brewpub on Sunday... drinking this on Thursday. I'd be surprised if this beer is more than a week old.

Appearance: Absolutely one of the best beers I've ever seen. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with quite a lot of floaters in the glass. The head is about two fingers of a creamy, cream colored head that stays at one throughout the glass. Lacing isn't that great, but easily forgiven. Awesome looking IIPA.

Smell: Total sweetness. Mango, grapefruit, pineapple, and even cherry. A lot of what you'd expect from quite a few IIPAs out there. This just smells fresh as hell... I can smell the beer from over a foot away.

Taste: A rush of bitterness quickly coats the mouth. On the swallow, a slight alcohol burn and bitterness lingers everywhere. The flavor itself is out-fucking-standing. While it is definitely bitter (DEM HOPS), the sweet, tropical flavors absolutely blow my mind. The nasal-cavity alcohol warmth lets you know that the ABV on this is pretty high, but Arctic Panzer Wolf tastes so goddamn good that you just don't wanna slow down.

Even if you're just looking for a beer to "warm you up", this would be a very good option... but not only do I like this more than Dreadnaught (by quite a margin, in fact), but this is the third best beer I've ever tasted. I'd really like to try Dreadnaught again to see if I really like this one that much more, but WOW. Very few can match this IIPA by Three Floyds.

3.99/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours a hazy golden orange with an off-white, near 3 finger head. Fair retention, resulting in a chunky, broken layer of bubbles across the surface. Leaves a thick, sticky lacing all-around the glass.

Smell - Equal parts citrus/orange aroma and caramel and bready malt. Very much in line with a lot of West Coast DIPA's.

Taste - Follows the nose. Juicy orange upfront with underlying grapefruit pith bitterness. Bread and caramel malt hit mid-taste and balance things out. Finishes with a nice balance, then a touch of orange peel in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full in body with moderate carbonation. Silky smooth on the finish. Very nice body.

Overall - A very good Imperial IPA, though it doesn't do much to distinguish itself from the rest of the pack. It's a beer I'd buy if it were on California shelves, but not necessarily one I'd trade for again, as comparable DIPAs are readily available.

The beer comes in a hazy orange yellow color with a fluffy 2 finger head.

The aroma has orange, mango, pine, apricot, grass.

The flavor is huge on this malty mouthfeel, which is immediately noticeable, then there’s some grapefruit, apricot, tropical fruits, and pineapple. The hop fruit profile is actually a bit hard to put a finger one. A huge strong pine bitterness just smacks you though after a few seconds. It really is strong, but also enjoyable.

The mouthfeel is so big that it is almost stout like. It’s a very big feel, but also drinkable because of the bitterness that cleans up the beer.

This is a really strong and fantastic DIPA.

22oz bomber poured into a Tulip glass.

A- This pours a cloudy orange with a one inch white head that reduces down relatively quickly.

S- This has really nice citrus and tropical fruit hop smell. Very sweet malty, orange with hints of pine. It may be from trade transport but I wasn't getting a really potent aroma but it was still very nice.

T- The taste is nice and smooth. A little bitterness upfront but doesn't really come out until the finish and then it lingers nicely. The flavor is a nice balance of malt some caramel, citrus and pine resin. Its not overpowering in any direction, good balance. Alcohol isn't noticeable, it has a nice presence with some warming.

M- Has a nice thick, coating mouth feel. Lightly carbonated, just enough to hold up the thicker body. A little oily feel.

O- This was my first three floyds and I can't wait to trade for some more. This is a outstanding IIPA. Great balance of flavors. It has the bitterness for the hopheads but I think would go over really well with people that dont usually drink big IPAs. Good stuff.

Grabbed the last bottle from a shop in Columbus, OH

The beer pours a cloudy, dull golden orange with mild white sediment and an inch of sticky off-white head that provides exceptional lacing. The nose is also exceptionally citrusy with notes of fresh squeezed oranges, candied orange peels, and grapefruit. The taste is spot on with a potent candy sweetness upfront followed by a slightly dry grapefruity bitterness. The mouthfeel is elegant - sweet malt, slight yeast, citrus hops, masked alcohol, and a semi-dry, modestly bitter finish. This beer deserves a world class rating, especially considering drinkability and price.

I'm not really into IPA's. But this one is very good. It has that usual grassy taste that most IPA's seem to shoot for. But this one tastes like it's a couple cuts above the norm. It's very flavorful, floral and sweet. I didn't have the cap off completely, I just let some air out and you could immediately smell its fruity bouquet. If you like IPA's you'll probably love this.

Thanks to Boilermakerryan for this one!

A - Pours a hazy golden straw orange with nearly 2 fingers of light, fluffy tan colored head. Nice retention, fantastic lacing!

S - Tons of sweet juicy fruits (much more so than the dreadnaught I had yesterday). Tons of mango, pineapple, grapefruit citrus. Reminiscent of the dreadnaught for sure, but much less resinous and wayyyy more juicy sweet/citrusy.

T - Lots of citrusy grapefruit and pineapple flavors with a nice wet bitter hoppyness. Astringent hops and mild alcohol flavors come in. Slight pepper and lots of mango/pineapple/juicy fruits follow immediately. The aftertaste is bitter, astringent hops with some sweet sharp citrus (lemon-like).

M - Medium bodied, the bitter fruityness makes it quite refreshing and drinkable even at 9% and semi-thick. Appropriate/someone heavy carbonation.

O - Fantastic! Enjoyed this one more than Dreadnaught (although I really loved them both). I'm thinking of this as a 2 hearted ale on steriods (big time).

22oz bomber poured into wine glass.

Appearance-pours hazy light apricot. With a 1 inch white head, that goes away rather quickly. Little lacing around but some shows up from time to time. 4

Aroma-very heavy tropical citrus, mainly mango and pineapple. Some hints of orange peel in there too. A little lemon, but the tropical notes are the main feature. 4.25

Taste-smooth apricot is the first to come thru. Then more of the sweeter malty side shows up. I'm getting lots of brown sugar. Later the bitterness returns strong. This has everything you could want in a DIPA. Very happy with the taste. 4.75

Feel-lower than full bodied but only slightly. Lots of carbonation on the tounge. Alcohol comes thru strong. 4.25

Overall-very happy with this purchase, it's a little pricey for a bomber but worth it. Three Floyd's just kill it with these IPA's. this one seems to be around Ohio the most, every time I see it I will most likely purchase from here on out. Great mix of sweet and bitter. 4.5

Fresh 2013 bottle, much thanks to Nate Shandy.

Appearance: Hazy, straw colored, blonde unfiltered goodness with a small white head that quickly recedes to the perimeter.

Smell: Sweet citrus, (mango and orange), bready malt, sweet citrus, pine.

Taste: Matches the nose nicely. The nice malt backbone with that typical Three Floyds hop profile is what I expected, and what I got.

Piney hops with a subtle mango/citrus sweetness overlay the malt nicely. The mango sweetness from the hops fades as the finish begins; then the pine and malt fade out nicely together.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and sticky as hell with ample carbonation.

Overall: I love FFF IPAs, because they have a pretty distinct hop profile that is very different and distinct at the same time. This beer is no different; another great offering that I'd love to have again.

Enjoyed this on tap at the Tap House Grill in Westmont, IL in a 10 oz snifter.

A - Golden brown, thin white head around rim, semi translucent

T - Pine, lemon, grassy, pineapple, grapefruit, carmel. Finish was a hoppy bitterness (7/10), slight booze

M - Full body, med froth, pine lingers

O - Very nice IIPA. Nose was very good. Huge citrus. Taste has more pine than citrus which I wish was the other way around. Wish it was more frothy. Lastly, ABV could be hidden a bit better on finish. But, I would have no problem have this again.

A: Pours a hazy, unfiltered gold color with a white head of foam on top. I like a beer that gets heady with some agitation -- this does just that. Nice bubbles in the body. Nice complexity overall.

T: Grassy. Resinous with tropical flavors -- pineapple and papaya. Fantastic.

Beautiful hazy, golden-orange with a big, fluffy, soapy, sticky bright white head that leaves behind tons of lacing and great retention. Gorgeous DIPA. The nose explodes with massive hop aromas. Citrus such as fresh grapefruit, orange, and apricot. This is a serious fresh hop, pine, and citrus bomb. Great body. Seriously. So creamy and smooth. Feels fantastic and the flavors are absurd. This has so much complexity for being such a hop bomb. The IBUs are off the charts but the hop character is so enjoyable. There some booze, some really dry qualities, and a bit of cloying sweetness, but outside of that it's a flawless beer. Wow.
