Served in a Duvel tulip

A - pours a hazy yellow orange, white head with about a half finger retention

S - smells of hops, grapefruit, malt. not a huge hop bomb by the nose

T - starts out sweet, followed by the bitterness of the hops, citrus, yeasty in the finish

M - fairly thick, medium carbonation, fair amount of carbonation

D - solid imperial IPA, didn't blow me away by any means, but i could definitely drink this one again.

Undated bombers poured into a Perfect Pint glass around 5C. Thanks to funkyaudio for this beer from US/Can BIF!

A: Hazy orange sunset with a light head that I had to try hard to coax out of it, but with no lacing and only a light ring around the edge, it does disappoint a little.
S: A beautiful hop bomb of a nose. Mainly fruity and tropical (grapefruit, pineapple...). After a period of time, the nose recedes into a more earthy tone with vegetal notes, that is much less exciting.
T: An aggressively bitter note pounds the palate with some hop flavours, that are just a little too light for my liking. Earthy and vegetal notes come through which somewhat detract from the overall experience. As time passes, some sweet bread malt is apparent.
M: Incredible bitterness that lingers, with a great crisp carbonation and bone dry.
O: I have never understood the concept of a 'balanced' DIPA. This beer goes right for the throat where it should be. Dry and bitter, loads of hop aroma. Only drawbacks really are the light hop flavours and vegetal / earthy note that doesn't pair well.

22oz bought last week at the brewpub, poured into a FFF pint glass.

Somewhat hazy, straw colored with a head that sticks around and provides a bit of lacing. Plenty of bubbles can be seen hastily dancing to the top.

Mango and pineapple dominate the nose at first with whiffs of lemon and grapefruit zest. A touch of more fruit sweetness and an ever so subtle hint of pine. This is all about the hops.

Bright fruity notes of pineapple and grapefruit open with their sweetness and then quickly move into the bittering aspects of the grapefruit like flavor. Not much malt to speak of but a subtle caramel and graham cracker sweetness is there.

Crisp and a bit sticky with a medium body, and ample carbonation.

Good use of pineapple and grapefruit flavors, but not too much different than Dreadnaught. A good beer, one that I'm glad I finally got to try fresh without having to take a gamble on a bottle from around the shelves here.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a slightly chilled Duvel tulip.

A: Pours a hazy yellowish with one finger head that dissipates quickly. Lacing is very minimal.

S: The smell just jumps out at you immediately and grabs your full attention. A great piney, resinous aroma with loads of sub-tropical flavors which I love in my DIPA's.

T: Man this a hop bomb for sure. Even though I can taste very little malt backbone in it, it doesn't have a very bitter aftertaste in for all the hops used.

M:Alcohol is very well hidden, very medium bodied.Carbonation is just right.

O: I was really excited to try this DIPA and once again 3 FFF has not let this HOP Head down. A special thanks goes out to fellow BA Urbancaver who provided me with this fine beer.

Cheers All!!!
