#ThreeFloyds #ArticPanzerWolf is an American Imperial IPA that puts a deep bright orange hue, lots of sediment~ Im beginning to wonder if mine is a bit old as it has heavy yeasty sediment floating, so perhaps this review should be taking with a grain of salt~ Aroma starts off very citrus, also a heavy smell of 'right before it rains' a lit of earthiness.. Honestly it smells like dirt~ Almost a bit bitter I feel like I have to end this #Breview as this one still taste good, I don't think it is tasting the way 3F's intended it (If so, it was less than Impressive)~ Overall: Incomplete (Stay tuned for a revisit)

Poured from a Bomber. Great thick head and the color was lighter than most of the DIPA's I drink. The smell of hops hit me hard which is unusual for me. I don't usually get a strong smell from any beers...too many cigars maybe?

Anyway, I am a big fan of TF Zombie Dust and Dreadnaught. The was a great DIPA, but I prefer those two over this. The hoppy flavor was great, but I am I don't detect the strong citrus flavors that many here discuss. There were subtle...which is a nice change of pace for me

So far I am 4 for 5 on Three Floyd products. The three mentioned here plus Robert the Bruce are all outstanding. Only Alpha King disappointed me. Probably because I have totally changed my palate the last few years. I will definitely buy this again when I see it. IF I see it.

Poured from a bottle dated 2/24/14—I know, almost 3 months old—into an IPA glass.

Look: on the paler side, especially for an IIPA. Very clear, well-carbonated yellow.

Smell: very unusual. I really can't put a name to what I'm picking up here. Not really fruity, piney, grassy, oniony, dank... The best way to describe it is that it's like the clean, bright smell I associate with cilantro or dill, but applied to some super-sweet, slightly citrusy tropical fruit.

Taste: pretty much follows the smell. More straightforwardly sweet and citric, but still elusive. Definite wood (oak/cedar) notes in there as well. Not really getting much bitterness at all.

Feel: decent. Medium body, good carbonation, fairly dry.

Overall: not the most unique IPA I've tried, but still pretty unusual, and very enjoyable.
