Three Floyds hits another hoppy home run of epic proportions with a juicy-citrus start and crisply bitter end.
A glowing orange-copper-golden elixer is capped with a froathy and stubborn foam stance with great lacing and retainage.
Mouthwatering aromas of tangerine, appricot, ruby red grapefruit, and orange rinds hit the nose with optimal impact. Leaving a soft malt (pilsner) confection and cracker-like note after the zest of bright fruits subside.
Flavors closely mimic the aromas by starting with a burst of juicy citrus and tropical fruit blends, then with an even and consistent fade toward crispness, bitterness, and pleasant dryness. Moderate alcohol flavors of acetone and jam-like sweetness gives a glimpse into a light estery-alcohol mix.
Creamy and froathy early, but the texture is sliced by hop dryness and alcohol warmth for a quick transition from the sweeter/fruitier start to the hoppy/dry finish. A visit of citrus fruit piths return in a long and fleeting aftertaste.
Perhaps just a step off from the pace of Dreadnaught, Artic Panzer Wolf fits nicely into the collection of Three Floyds hop shelves; along side of Apocalypse Cow and rivaling Founders Double Trouble.
