On-tap at Rocking Horse.

Pours a cloudy bright orange with a thin ring of white head. Light gold highlights.

Aroma of bitter citrus--grapefruit peel and what I think is blood oranges. Little pine and grass. Slight floral component that is hard to place.

Taste follows the smell with citrus peel and blood orange creating a bitter upfront flavor. Light bready malt middle. Bitter finish of grassy and floral hops. Some citrus present.

Medium body with light to moderate carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Very minor alcohol heat at the finish as it warms.

Pretty good IPA with a unique, but hard to place, flavor. The citrus component is definitely orange leaning and reminds me of Short's Anniversary Blood Orange Wheatwine. Moderate bitterness. Probably not something I'd order more than one of.

4.03/5  rDev -4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with a slightly hazy amber color and a sturdy head that leaves sheets of lace behind

Smell: Piney and hempy, with an undertone of pith

Taste: Hemp, pith and pine, up front, with the sugary malts arriving at mid-palate; a wallop of bitterness, after the swallow, that assaults the tastebuds

Mouthfeel: Full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Quite a powerful beer; I wasn't that crazy about the hemp flavor though it was an interesting twist from the typical DIPA

Berzerker

On tap @ The House Pub

Pours a hazy, orange tinted yellow with a fingers worth of white head. Sick retention. Tons of lace.

The nose is full of grassy and earthy hops, creating a light garlic taste. Light fruity presence. Some mangos. Boozy it is not.

The taste follows the nose closely but this time, with massive bitterness. Very earthy, some garlic, tropical fruits, and more bitterness. Did I mention this was pretty damn bitter?

The mouthfeel is juicy and smooth. The consistancy of fruit juice it seems. Great carbonation.

Overall, what can I say? 3 Floyds tears it up, once again.

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.

Decent lacing, not as sticky as other big dipas. Clear, super clear orange body. Low carbonation visible.

Supposedly orange armpit. I think this is the sweetest, closeest thing to orange juice since pressed oranges. A bit of onion.. minor garlic, but tremendous orange rind and citrus juice.

Flavors, orange juice, minor bitterness, onion sauted with garlic, the hops are so well balanced, so lightly bittered but so noticeable. I'm in love.

Smooth, creamy, lingering, but it never over does it!! I'm thinking this is the DIPA equivalent of zombie dust. Crisp finish!
