This is my new favorite beer. My favorite bartender here in Fort Wayne, IN suggested it to me and boy was he right! This is a new level for IPAs and honestly the new standard. I've been drinking beer for awhile now and honestly this is the best IPA I've had yet. If you ever get a chance to taste this direct from the tap I highly suggest it!

My favorite Three Floyds beer to date and one deserving of its high rating and lavish praise. Pours deep gold with good clarity and a small, cream colored head that settles fairly quickly. Clingy patches of lace stick to the sides of the glass.

Huge, hoppy citra aroma and flavor; very little sweetness; dry finish; lots of lingering bitterness. Fresh pine, citrus, pineapple, mild oniony, catty note beneath, super juicy. Minimal malt presence, just the slightest dry, bready backbone.

Medium body, medium, somewhat lively carbonation but retains a level of creamy smoothness as well. Terrific mouthfeel and simply terrific overall; does a lovely job of balancing intricate hoppy flavor with just the right amount of bitterness; the latter never overwhelms the tastiest aspects of the beer. Thanks to Mjmoser for a handful of ridiculously fresh bottles!

Thanks to Savearth for throwing a few bottles this in as extras in our IP trade. I have been interested in this one for a while, only to have it elude me. The hopophobe wife passed on beer last night, meaning it is Zombie Dust time. Fittingly,also Walking Dead time.

The pour gives a lot of head and a cloudy, burnt orange pour. The smell is fruit forward. Juicy fruit gum comes to mind with a wallop of hops thrown in. Taste is similar, but comes with a chaser that I associate with Libby's Fruit Cocktail. medium in body and carbonation, easy drinker.

Really good stuff. Not the life event I was hoping for, but I enjoyed this beer.

Pours a beautiful orange hazy amber stone with sticky white head.

Smell is floral tropical fruits of papaya, guava, mango and grapefruit. Lingering pine and a sweet maltiness.

Tastes is very tropical with the malt balancing this act. A taste like no other that really transcends all others.

Mouthfeel is creamy and quenching. Tropical fruits linger.

Masterfully crafted by one of the best. Really stands alone in quality. A tremendously tremendous craft!

Pours golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of sweet tropical and citrus fruits with bit of a sweet bready malt underbelly. A very nice sweet and juicy flavor of some tropical and citric fruits, less malt presence in the flavor than was in the aroma. A nice, medium, active body. Overall, awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome beer. Tops the list of APA's for me, wish I had consistent access to this.
