Lucky enough to walk into Clark St. Ale House and find this one on tap.

A- Lighter shade for a DIPA. Nice white frothy head and haze. Some lacing on the tulip.

S- DANK. The more a beer smells like home (Humboldt) the more I like it. Some tart ass fresh lemon and pine there as well.

T- Dank. Dry. Pine and some crazy citrus, grapefruit. Really just face blasting. It's my favorite DIPA from Three Floyds for sure, like Zombie Dust's big brother. No malt here buddy.

M- Crispy dry and perfectly carbonated. Tongue burn.

O- This is one of the better beers I have had from Three Floyds, and that is saying a lot. I would love to see this one more often.

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.
