Poured from 22 oz bomber. Amber orange color with 2 fingers of off-white foam. More sediment and yeast in suspension than I've ever seen in any 3 Floyd's beer.

Orange, tangerine, and slight alcohol in the nose.

Tastes a bit fruity with a touch of malt sweetness peaking through in the middle but finishing incredibly hoppy and bitter. Hop flavor is still very rough around the edges.could probably benefit from an additional week of cold conditioning.

Mouth feel is appropriate for double IPA. Not overly thick or viscous, but hides the alcohol well. No burn.

Overall, enjoyable sipper, but a little overly bitter, throwing it slightly out of balance. Enjoyable, but nowhere near permanent funeral, Arctic panzer wolf, or some of 3 Floyd's other IIPA offerings.

Bomber poured into a Spiegelau glass.

A: Pours a copper color with a strong orange hue, has over a finger of white foamy head that reduces fairly slow per style and leaves just a little bit of head.
S: I mainly get orange and tangerine in the aroma. There's a bit of onion lingering on the back end that lingers forever.
T: I get a lot of tangerine and onion from front to back. Not a whole lot else going on with the flavor. It's good, but 1 dimensional.
M: Carbed well, leaves a super dry after taste.
O: This is a solid DIPA, even though it's very different from what I've become accustomed to from the Floyd family. Of the bomber IPAs, this is near the bottom in terms of likeability from FFF.

bottled 07/26/2014 poured in my trusty Founders snifter.
A: Dark dirty neon orange color, holy shit this is gonna be good! 1/4 inch head.
S: Very sweet , tropical fruit, smell is amazing!
T: Oh my God, when it first hits your tongue, citrus tropical, I'm thinking Jai Alai but better! but the finish, nothing! no hoppiness, no bitterness, no sweetness, no malt backbone, nothing on the back on the tongue!
M: very nice, smooth, creamy, very well made beer.
O: Don't get me wrong, this is a very well crafted brew, but 3f's is my favorite brewery and I hold them to very high standards. But I cant help but think they didn't finish the job! It coulda been a classic!
