22oz bottle shared by Doug. Poured into a Great Lakes snifter today, 10/31/2013. Have had this multiple times out of the tap and bottle (last had was 6/1/2013), but only getting around to reviewing this today.

Pours a hazy straw-golden body with a nice white head that has solid retention. Filmy foam that sticks around a bit. Good lacing left all over the place as the beer goes down.

Smells fantastic. So damn hoppy, not much malt backbone. Lots of citrus- so much grapefruit- with complementary notes of pine and earth. Strong and very hoppy, typical of a Three Floyds beer.

Very grapefruity on the tongue, some orange zest in there along with some pine resin. No real sign of a malt backbone. Very strong hoppiness.

Medium body, great carbonation, creamy. Typical Three Floyds. Dry finish but not too dry- so drinkable for a DIPA. Finish is quite bitter yet this beer is so drinkable. Don't know else to say about it.

Definitely better than Dreadnaught. It brings the hops to your mouth. Definitely not balanced, but that's Three Floyds for you. A fantastic DIPA, no doubt.

Thanks to a buddy for a recent 3F shipment

A: Hazy pour into a tulip with perfect carbonation. One inch head.

S: Huge grapefruit notes upfront

T: Goes down very easy. Crisp and sharp on the tongue but the bitterness is not overwhelming and completely mutes the alcohol. Predominantly citrus/grapefruit/piney. I don't get a lot of the tropical fruit notes others get. 9%--no way. Just enough malt.

O: I was worried this was going to be an over-the-top one-dimensional hop bomb after enjoying Dreadnaught--what could to that one? Although heretical, on a side by side, I liked it better than its better known brother. Pushes the edge and stops just right. Three more just arrived. Cheers
