A: Pours a light, hazy gold. A solid two finger, creamy white head pops up with a decently aggressive pour. It sticks around and there's some fantastic lacing.

S: Whole lot of citrus going on. Grapefruit and lemon. Little bit of pine but not a whole lot.

T: Same citrus with some sweet malts. Pine, and whoa those freakin' hops! There's a whole lot of taste here. Primary grapefruit. Fantastic. Hops your head off. Awesome.

M: Fantastic carbonation. Feels awesome on the palate, with good hoppiness on the aftertaste. Fantastic.

O: If you like IIPAs, you need to try this beer. Seriously just a good, good beer.

22 oz. bottle into Sam Adams lager glass, with another grateful bow to Jeff (AleWatcher) for more delicious beer. Every box is like the opening of another cornucopia of deliciousness.

Pours paler than I expect, and cloudier - a murky dark straw leaning towards orange, with a thin, soapy layer of whitish bubbles on top that doesn't amount to too much. Again, would deserve a slightly lower score if I didn't believe 20% of the total score to be an altogether too-high percentage for appearance to make up.

Nose is ridiculously fruity, very vibrant. Huge tropical aromas just pour out of the glass - mango, even kiwi, some grapefruit coming through with a bit of a rindy edge to it. This is juicy, with just enough malt underneath to give a nice foundation for the big hops. A very nice nose.

Taste follows suit - huge, massive hops, and just enough malt to sit like atlas underneath, holding up the weight of all those lush, dripping, tropical fruit notes and that dry, lingering prickly bite. Big time balance of grapefruit and tropical fruit, with the grapefruit a bit more prominent in the taste than in the nose, and a lingering bitterness that is more dry than sharp, if a bit prickly. Just a bit of caramel malt peeks its head out towards the finish as well, though still in the character of beautifully juicy tropical fruit. Quite delicious.

Mouthfeel is full bodied, just enough carbonation to do is job without getting in the way, with a smoothness that's almost lush. Dry, prickly finish that tingles the tongue.

Drinkability is quite high. The alcohol is well hidden, bordering on invisible, and the flavor and mouthfeel are both vibrant and exceptional.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this, and I'm left very, very impressed. A beautifully assembled beer.

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice.

Appearance: Pours a somewhat hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of rising bubbles. One finger of white head that settles into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A lively citrus forward aroma with a nice complex mix of fruit esters. Big hop scent upfront with hints of citrus orange peel, pineapple, mango, grapefruit, apricot, tangerine, and lemon. Also some grassy hops and pine resin spice. Some subtle undertones of white wine characteristics with a hint of grape. A fair amount of sugar. Bready soft malts with hints of cracker, biscuit, caramel, and yeast. A little scent of honey is also in the mix. Very good aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a ripe and juicy taste of citrus hop fruit esters. Big taste of ripe and bitter hops upfront with notes of citrus orange, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, and apricot. Along with the citrus is a taste of spicy pine resin and grass. A little hint of white grapes. Soft bready malts with notes of cracker, biscuit, caramel, grain, and yeast. Some sugar and honey adds some more sweetness. Very citrus forward, tropical, and juicy. A great West Coast style IPA taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, chewy, and fairly oily. Alcohol heat is hidden very well.

Overall: Another great imperial IPA from Three Floyds. Great tropical citrus hop flavors.

I just found these notes along with my notes for Broo Doo from just over a month ago. Notes are thorough.

The color is close to Broo Doo, almost orange and just as hazy with a bit more gold glowing through the body. An off-white head is pretty large and sits thick and sturdy on top the whole time, leaving pretty chunky lacing behind.
Lots of tropical fruits, almost like a fruit basket, pour out of the aroma. This beer is heavily hopped but with a fantastic malts balance, a light bready and caramel malts sweetness tempering a big, assertive bitterness. Malts even go a little dry at the end, which is interesting and adds to the complexity.
The taste follows suit, big tropical fruits and a mix of citrus and resinous bitterness balanced by malts sweetness, though a crackery malts dryness comes through more in the middle and into the finish.
The body is medium with a lighter carbonation. This beer starts crisp, has a good, full smoothness, and almost transitions back to crisp from the dryness coming out.
This is fantastic beer, and I liked it just a bit more than Broo Doo, another great one from FFF.

Poured from 22oz bottle. Review from notes....

A- Pours a hazy orangeish amber color. Two finger white head shows good retention. Lacing comes in a streaky format.

S- Big time citrus hops burst in the aroma from the get go. Light bready tones in the middle show up for a second before getting covered with more citrusy hops.

T- This tastes pretty much how the aroma rolls. Nice citrus hops burst in the front with some grapefruit and orange. Middle of the beer has light bready notes with some cracker tones. Ending of the beer shows a light citrus flavor mixed in with a bitter hop bite. Light alcohol kisses the backend of the beer.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is great for the beer and good for the style. Hops destroyed the palate and crushed the aftertaste with a little help from the light alcohol. Palate was dryed a lot from the alcohol. Flavors were hop forward but the malts popped out from time to time.

D- This was a good DIPA. Better than Dreadnaught I thought. Once again a beer that's not normal from a brewery who is well known for brewing outside the box.

good lord this beer knocked my socks off. I will gladly punch your grandmother for more.

appearance: clear straw color with thick head.
nose: punch in the face with fruity, citrusy hops
mouthfeel: very quaffable, goes down a little too smoothly
taste: initial malty backbone gives way to hoppy bouquet as soon as it passes your epiglottis.

100 IBUs? how can this go down so smoothly?

22oz bomber into Duvel tulip

A - pours a hazy medium yellow with one finger of white head. Foam has medium sized loose bubbles and looks great. Decent lacing as it recedes fairly fast.

S - citrus, grapefruit, some tropical notes. lovely smelling beer, as is the FFF standard.

T - wow. nose comes through in the taste just as expected but stronger. sweetness up front but hops take over in the middle and carry it through to the bitter end (sorry). just a great tasting DIPA.

M - medium to heavy. sticky but desirable in this brew. sits on the palate as it assaults it too. Definitely a full bodied beer.

O - FFF seldom disappoints and often hits a Homerun...APW is certainly in the latter category. This is a top notch DIPA, maybe not the best but certainly worth mentioning. I didnt think it would be possible but I prefer it over Dreadnaught to be perfectly honest. Great beer.

A- Wonderful pour of a slight haze darker in color, a little light for a DIPA but still nice. There is a good head to it that sticks around and is almost lacy in texture.

S- Holy hop pants of fire. I could smell it while it sits on the table while I'm a couple feet away. Once I put my nose in it though it was hops hops and more hops. It smells like I just opened a bag of hops.

T- It's on par with Hopslam with the amount of hops that hits the face. It taste like I'm nawing on a piece of pine tree and I love it. The hops are sharp and crisp just sit on the tongue and really kick ass.

M- It's a medium body a little light, but still has a lot of mouth feel. Carbonation is very well done and compliments the over all beer.

O- Very well done FFF, it really is like FFF to have a DIPA that just kicks your ass with hops. I know this isn't for everyone, but if you are a hop head that likes a ridiculous amount of hops in a beer then look no further.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance- beautiful amber color, 1 finger loose head. High Density suspended particulates.

Aroma- Deep citrous Forrest, breakfast marmalade on a English muffin, slight pine. Tiny hint of the gravity to come.

Taste: Front tongue bite, followed by pine & citrous, slowly rolling front to back in volumptuous smoothness, leaving the tongue numbed & hopknockered.

Mouthfeel- Full bodied but not to viscous. Slowly gives way to the generous hopnessouty. Very conforting two row blanketing of the tongue.

Overall- A definite object of future beer searches. The 2-row & dextrose give way to beautiful hop notes right when your ready for them.

Sent to me quite fresh thanks to a good friend. Perfect pour. Thick lacy head over an orangish straw IPA. Nose has big hops and malts, but not as explosive as I expected. Taste is near perfect. Great blend of fresh bitter hops and big malts. Clean yet full body. Nice hoppy finish. Good, but not on the same level as Dreadnaught.

A- 3.5 This beer isn't all that exciting in appearance. It is a clear light gold and has a minimal white head composed of medium sized bubbles. It does have smooth, uniform lacing and active bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass.

S- 5 Very nice, strong aroma that is a well-balanced blend of citrus (grapefruit, apricot), pine, white grapes, and hops. It is pungent and reminds me of herbs that I've smelled at rock concerts.

T- 4.5 The hop oils come through strongly as the brew coats my mouth, and a little bit of malt sweetness works its way in at the middle of the drink. That is followed by a dry, pine-like bitterness to finish. Altogether it is a little citrusy as are many of the style. Very well-rounded taste to this one, and its 9% ABV is well hidden.

M- 4.5 Near perfect feel; it's medium in body and there is nice carbonation. Just a little syrupy finish leaves me dry but wanting more to quench it.

D- 4 This is a really good imperial IPA. As I've mentioned before, I'm not the biggest hop-head (probably wouldn't have more than a bomber in a sitting), but the style is growing on me and I certainly appreciate it. This brew's aroma is excellent and has a well-balanced taste taboot. It is up there with the best of the style (that I've tried), and it's worth a shot if you can get your hands on it.

Thanks to Dunn for bringing this one back from his travels.

A - bright yellow with a thin lacing of white head

S - floral, faint alcohol, mango, grapefruit, pineapple

T - mango, citrus, pineapple, bread, faint alcohol

M - warm, medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This has huge citrusy hop character. It's complex and very fruity. The malt is bready and a bit sweet. There's exceptional balance and dangerous drinkability. This is very impressive!

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a tulip- pours a bright golden orange color, somewhat hazy, two finger head, doesn't stay very long, only a few spots of lacing.

Nose is very hoppy- citrus and pine. Grapefruit, lemon, balanced evenly with the pine. Lovely.

Taste is consistent- grapefruit up front, followed by a little bit of pale malt, then great resiny bitterness and pine hops towards the end. Has a long, dry finish. Excellent.

Great mouthfeel as well- light, closer to medium body, moderate carbonation, a great does of resin. I really like this one- it's fresh, and it definitely lives up to the Three Floyds reputation. Try it if you love hops and see it!

a: piraat chalice, produces a tight white head upon pouring, leaving a thin layer and ring, the beer itself a hazed golden in color

s: absolute citrus bomb - smells like citra hop to me, vivid orange and grapefruit zest, fresh and oily, full backing of pale malts with a light caramel sweetness - though totally staying out of the way, fantastic

m: carbonation kicking around the lighter end of medium, combined with the light-moderate body creating a crisp, almost refreshing mouthfeel for a beer of this strength

t: as expected, the flavor is loaded to the hilt with oily, juicy citrus flavors, grapefruit and orange essence, citrus juice through and through, supporting body of clean pale malts and some light sugars, finishing with a nicely biting bitterness, absolutely love the hop profile on this one

d: drinks great, no real sign of the abv present, and the balanced sugars (and pseudo-dryness) and crisp hops make for an easy drink, it's actually quite nice on both sides of the temperature spectrum - more crisp and purely citrusy when cold, with some pale malt sweetness coming in as it warms

Served in a pint glass at Sheffields 10/31/09. Extra special thanks to HeatherAnn and joe1510 for the assist!

A: Served a hazy, coppery hue. 1 1/2 fingers of creamy, off-white goodness that stuck around for quite awhile and left rings, gobs, and specks of lace behind.

S: Major hop bomb. I picked up pineapple with a large chunk of pine thrown in for good measure. Lurking in the background was some sweet caramel but it was almost entirely trounced upon by the hops.

T: I enjoyed how the hop flavors see-sawed between bitter, resinous pine and juicy, tangy pineapple. Instead of being a muddled mess of over hopped flavors there was excellent balance. Once again, that meek little caramel flavor darts around and adds a bit more balance before the hops completely step on it. Wonderful!

M: Big juicy and sticky bitterness coats the entire inside of my mouth helping to develop a huge long lasting bitter hop finish.

D: Another in an impressive line-up of DIPA's from FFF. The well hidden alcohol made this damn near gulp-able. It's that scary good...really!

Hazy peach pour into a Duvel tulip with 1/2" white froth. Head is airy and bubbly. Big floral aroma of coconut, pink grapefruit, melon and pine. Touch of sweet on the aroma but overall very nice. Piney flavor up front with very dense grapefruit rind. Good bitterness and not sweet at all which I very much prefer with this style. Coconut mouthfeel, with navel orange crunchiness. Finishes very smooth.

A - Pours an orangish gold with a nice two finger fluffy white head that dissipated to some moderate lacing. Nice bit of lacing after dissipation and throughout the drink.

S - Mine was served a bit cold, so I let it sit for a while. At first I thought this was pretty average, but as it warmed up the beauty of this beer comes out. Very very subtle flavors. There is some resiny hops, but nicely subtle malt and then some really interesting apricot and marmalade flavor. I don't know that I have ever smelled anything like this before, it was truly fantastic once I was able to start picking it out.

T - At first I was not particularly impressed with this beer, just seemed kind of plain, and unhoppy for a double IPA. But as it warmed, you get some nice resin hops and slight pine notes on the back end. Great maramlade in there with some subtle apricot. The thing that struck me most about this beer was how it abruptly ended hard. Nothing lingering, not sharp, not blunt, but just stopped, with a juice-like ending that had the tiniest bit of phenol on it, very surprising and pleasant once the beer warmed up.

M - Medium bodied, decent carbonation, felt right for the style.

D - The bomber got me pretty buzzed, although I finished it without a problem. This beer is dangerously drinkable, but the alcohol buzz you get will give you a little warning to stop.

750ml->Duvel Tulip
A ~ No best buy date, but it has Last year's artwork, so that tells me something. Pours a brilliant bright orange-blonde with compacted carb & good lacing, but not near as thick as Alpha King was.

S ~ Pineneedles (lots), Spruce, Mint, Light Papaya, Assorted citrus.
Honestly, it's a really simple hop forward aroma that makes you want to keep whiffin' it.

T ~ Flavors straight from a Coniferous Forest..It's leafy, it's grassy & it's piney. Fruits include tangerine, grapefruit, nectarine, kumquat, orange juice, & candied lemon-peel. There's a bit of sugar cookie & snickerdoodle (unexpected) as well. The dextrose added really helped assert the bold hop flavors quite a bit.

M ~ I love the mouthfeel of this beer. Very smooth & extremely crisp in terms of carbonation. FFF has achieved a nice melody of bite, sharpness & spice. ABV is not present in anyway, & the only heat I'm getting is on the throat from the hop oils. This is a good thing.

D ~ Very glad to have another in my fridge from this year (new artwork) to straight-up enjoy again, but in a fresher state.

Presentation: 22 oz. bomber bottle with no freshness date. Served at room temperature and poured into my Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass. Big thanks to AgentZero for this longtime want.

Appearance: Golden orange in color with a one finger, fizzy white head. The head subsides pretty quickly into the thinest of lacings around the edge.

Aroma: Mango, apricot, and grapefruit notes are all there. Definitely highlights the more tropical fruity notes from the hops here. Only a touch of pale malt. Nice balance.

Taste: Pineapple, mango, grapefruit and a touch of pine. Definitely more bitterness than the aroma, but the sweet hop notes really dominate (and that's a good thing in my opinion). The balance keeps it out of the realm of cloying sweetness.

Mouthfeel; Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Very crisp.

Overall, a really nice DIPA with great hop flavors and balance. Of all the 3 3Floyd's IPAs I've had (the other two being Apocalypse Cow and Dreadnaught), this was my favorite by a long shot. Highly recommended.

On tap at Local Option, poured into a tulip.

Appearance: Hazy golden yellow/orange with a 1-2 finger sticky, frothy slightly off white head. Original head only sticks around for a bit but leaves lacing all the way down the glass.

Smell: Intense hops and citrus. Not really any other way to describe it. It's a delicious combo of grapefruit and piney hops. The alcohol isn't too evident at all.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Not as bitter as expected. Some caramel that didn't come across to me as much in the smell balances the massive hops well. Add in the citrus and you have an amazingly smooth beer for the style. It certainly leaves a bitter taste in your mouth, but it doesn't stay with you as long as some other DIPAs. Mouthfeel is super chewy, creamy, medium bodied with not too much carbonation

Drinkability: I ordered this off the board at Local Option having no idea what the ABV was and if someone had told me 9% I would have been blown away. Incredibly drinkable for the amount of alcohol. A telling sign is that my girlfriend, who usually has a tougher time with high ABV, super bitter DIPAs, had one and loved it. It wouldn't be hard at all to get through a few of these.

Amazing stuff. So amped to have had the chance to try it and might just have to head back to Local Option tonight to get some more.

650ml bottle poured into tulip oct14 2010

A golden yellow with a shitload of sediment suspended like it's floating in jello with just a couple of bubbles moving it around, the thumbs width of foam falls to a 1/4in film that goes nowhere but leaves no lace

S I don't get any white wine like the label says but plenty of grapefruit, tangerine, and other tropical fruit with a heavy dose of pine some toffee and faint booze

T not far from the smell but more toffee and booze, big citrus is hard to miss and right up my alley, booze is there but well concealed considering it's 9%

M quite course leaving a fair bit behind in your mouth, more carbonation then I could see but that's not saying much and I'm thinking I'm missing some enamel from my teeth

D perhaps this one should come with a disclaimer because it could hurt you if you let it, just a little heat but for the most part it could disguise itself a mid booze IPA

Thank MasterSki for sending this one my way, great beer and I will be looking for it anywhere I go

Poured from a bomber into a Sam Adams pint.

A: Pours a hazy yellow-orange color with one half finger of nearly white head. Good retention and lace.

S: Sweet grapefruit and peach, quite bright.

T: Very mellow, leads with a bit of spicy malt with bitterness gradually growing, then fades to pairing of sweet peach with a little pine tar. Peach persists on the aftertaste. Biscuit and some soft minerals are also present. Alcohol just barely present toward the end of the glass.

M: Medium mouthfeel with a pleasant, nectar-like feeling.

O: This is a great beer and quite a contrast from Dreadnaught. This is much more mellow but still full-flavored and satisfying. Pretty tame for the wolf imagery, but a great beer nonetheless. I will definitely look for this one again.

Pours a golden hazy orange with a few botches of bright white head.

Tropical citrus and some fresh pine.  Mangos and pineapple.

First thing I get is the aforementioned tropical fruit.  But, this is quickly taken over by piney, resiney, hop oil.  There's also bitter lemon zest.  Extremely piney and bitter, sucking on a hop cone here... Not what I expected from the nose.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and well carbonated.

Nice DIPA with huge hop bitterness, worth checking out.

Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a two finger frothy white head.  Good retention, only slowly fading into a lasting ring. Streaks of lacing left behind.

Aroma bursting forth with sweet citrus and tropical fruit notes along with subtle earthy pine and pale malts.  Complex hop profile with dank floral hops countering the sweetness but the nose is dominated by tropical/citrus fruit.  Lots of  mango, pineapple, grapefruit and orange peel along with pale biscuit malt notes.

On the fuller end of medium bodied with a blast of sweet citrus and tropical fruit notes countered by faint earthy dryness.  Excellently balances with dank earthy pine notes and some pale biscuit malt.  Never comes across to bitter or too sweet.  Very flavorful and easy to drink.

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!!!
