4.48/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

yet more proof that 3 floyds is unmatched (in my mind) in making APA/IPAs and DIPAs...
A: deep gold to orange and clear. decent white head and lacing.
S: these NZ hops really are noticeably different. hard to put my finger on, but they have a lot of fresh stone fruit qualities (apricots? peaches? grapes? or some kind of unfamiliar tropical fruit?) my palate is not sophisticated enough to discern the particular qualities. these NZ hops have a resiny/herbal quality to them as well that is just a bit different. some sweet bready malts underneath.
T: medium sweet doughy malts barely support the big, fruity, juicy, and smoothly bitter hops. for all the listed IBUs this goes down way too easy and is not harshly bitter at all.
M: medium to full body. carbonation struggles through just a bit.
O: would like to revisit this...better and more interesting DIPA than APW?

4.25/5  rDev +1.9%

Serving: 22 oz. bomber dated 7/25/14, poured into a Founder's pint glass.

A: Pour a very cloudy and hazy orange color. Faint 1/4 finger white head.

S: Pineapple, mango, tangerine, clementine.

T: Same as it smells, with pineapple and tangerine flavors dominating. Actually rather sweet for a DIPA. Has an almost "juicy" and "fruity" quality and flavor to it.

M: Nice and full. Alcohol hidden very well. Faint bitterness on the finish, not overwhelming at all.

O: So I was surprised to see this listed as a DIPA on BA. Bottle says "cimmerian pale ale". As I started to drink it, it tasted more like a big IPA. But DIPA certainly fits it nonetheless. This is a good beer. For 3F DIPAs, my standard is Permanent Funeral, and this is nowhere near that level. This one's a bit too juicy-sweet for me. Tropical fruit flavors are very dominating. Still a great effort from 3F though.

Recommendation: Any fan of 3F or very citrusy DIPAs should grab this if able.

Pours a cloudy dark golden and amber with a very lively 3 finger head.

Smells of grapefruit, pineapple, and just marvelously tropical.

Taste is very unique. Very fruity very tropical but perfect balanced with a nice bitter hop finish.

Mouthfeel is beyond smooth for a 9%er.

Overall I thought this brew was fantastic and would most certainly pick up again.
