The wolf inside this pale ale is trying to walk upright. This bright and aromatic beer was brewed with our friends in the band Pig Destroyer.

The strong alcohol content gets lost in the awesome hops that blend piney/earthy flavor and citrus. FFF gets it right with a lot of hop forward beers and Permanent Funeral is my favorite of them all

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: slightly dark amber with some cloudyness. Poured a nice white head and very good lacing
S: Very strong hops with a lot of pine behind it. Slight smell of citrus and malt back. Very good smelling
T: Not my favorite. This is a much more piney and bitter ipa. You get smacked in the face with hops and has a strong biterness. Still tastey and has a delicious after taste. Slight booze
M: 3F beers always have that perfect carbonation but this one has a bit of a stickyness to it.

O: A very bitter and piney Ipa def not my favorite but still a great beer.

Again big thanks to bstyles for hooking me up with more super fresh bottles!
22 oz bottle, dated 1/14/15, poured into a teku

A- A clear bright golden orange with a two finger white head.

S- Damn this is good, tropical fruits, grapefruit rinds, citrus, hint of mint, pine, and some sweet malts and a touch of alcohol reminding me that this is 10.50% ABV.

T- Slightly boozy and some caramel malts that bring a really nice balance to the huge hop profile, big piney finish, bright citrus, some tropical fruits.

M- Smooth, medium body.

O- Another awesome beer from 3 Floyds. Definitely worth seeking out, alcohol is not fully hidden, but it actually works in balancing the beer. Wish I had more!

Pours a deep golden orange color with a fluffy, chalky white head. 3.75

Smell is very citrus forward, but faint. Lots of orange and grapefruit, some mango. Also a decent amount of bready, maltiness on the nose. 3.5

Taste follows the nose. Bitter orange peel and grapefruit. HUGE bitterness. Like holy cow this is bitter. Big malt backbone too, but no real sweetness except for a slight candied orange flavor that is getting beaten into submission by the massive hop bitterness. The finish is malty and bitter (if that makes sense) and lasts quite a while. The ABV (10.5%) is not hidden. 3.75

Mouthfeel is very creamy for a DIPA in my opinion. I prefer my IPAs crisper, with some nice weight, but damn this is heavy for an IPA. 3.25

Overall a good beer, but I will probably stick to other IPAs in the future. Glad I got to try it. 3.5

If it's on tap, then it should be your first. If it's available to go, then "Get some!"
