i have to confess that this was not the freshest bottle, in fact, im sure past its prime. in a gross cellaring error by close friend and loyal BA claystation, this bottle was forgotten for about seven months, so im sure its not drinking as well as it might have been back then. let that be a preface for the rest of this review, and i will make sure to revisit this if i am lucky enough to have a fresh one some day down the road. odd pour here, mango orange tinted golden bronze color with a ton of yeast floaties in here, like a mikkeller barleywine or something, its that prominent. heady too, over an inch of white, and lasting. the nose is tropical fruit all the way, passion fruit and papaya, but im sure this has faded some too, as there is virtually no bitterness but instead a thick malty sweetness that isnt all the way awesome. the flavor is a lot like the nose, thick and sticky hops in the fruit family, but im imagining what they could have been, not really focusing on what they are. some citrus too as it finishes, and again the malt sweetness. a little more body than necessary, but a really well hidden alcohol content and a cool use of hops. not my favorite from three floyds, but i will reserve judgement on whether or not it is worth the hype until i have a fresh one.

22oz bottle received via Growling at the Moon. Thanks for the brew, Dain!
Pours into an imperial pint glass, forming a 1/2" light beige head over the cloudy dark golden amber brew. Head falls at a moderate pace, with sporadic lacing. Aroma is sweet citrus.
Taste starts sweet with a bit of bitterness, citrus in the middle with more bitterness, and bitterness with alcohol through the close. Somehow though, bitterness is in control, not bitter simply for bitter's sake. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth, and drinkability is good for an DIPA. Nice brew, for sure.
