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.

Bomber poured into Spiegelau glass.

A: 4.25 Pours a bright golden color with 2 fingers of white head that reduces slowly and leaves a little lacing.
S: 4.75 Aroma of a strong citrus and malt blend. Very complex, extremely well balanced. Lots of pine throughout as well.
T: 4.5 Very similar to smell, complex and balanced. Surprisingly sweet for the brewery and style combo.
M: 4.25 Smooth and silky. Carbed well. Not much a dry after taste as expected.
O: 4.25 Yet another great brew by FFF. I'm not surprised, haha. This may be the best balanced DIPA by the Floyds. Other comparables have been mainly a hop bomb of some sort, this may be the most enjoyable throughout.

22oz bottle bought at the brewery about a week ago. 30920E0010042 appears to be the bottle code.

Pours clear, coarsely carbonated, with a small white head. Smell is delicious. Honeysuckle and pine and grapefruit, abundantly.

Taste is a surprisingly fair balance -- enormous sweetness to match the enormous hoppy bitterness. For the strength, it has a very surprising smoothness and is quite (dangerously) easy to drink.

Mouthfeel is light, dry, slightly effervescent. Overall, this is a pretty damn good beer.

22oz Bomber (love the label) poured into Spiegelau Tulip.

Appears pale orange with lots of creamy white head, gorgeous. The smell is very strong of citrus, tropical fruit, and alcohol. This has to be the most intense smell I've ever detected in a beer, the juicy goodness just fills the room.

The taste is mind blowing! More sweet tropical fruits and citrus, so good! The alcohol presence is there, but hardly noticeable. It feels so creamy and smooth. As it warms everything just intensifies.

Overall this right up there with the best of them. It's only supposed to be a one time release, but hopefully they decide to bring it back someday.

Had on draft at the brewery last week, and picked up a couple bombers on the way out. The draft version was quite good, but this bottle is extraordinary.

Pours much like many other DIPAs... About 2F of off-white head over a hazy golden body. Lots of sticky lacing.

Aromas are powerful, but in a totally inviting way. Fresh as anything, it bursts with sweet tropical fruits... Lots of pineapple and mango.

Mouthfeel is amazingly smooth for the ABV...dare I say "creamy"? Yes, that is confirmed, but does finish with some dryness. Flavor is sharper, and just packed with pine, dried apricot, mango sweetness, and some nice balance of malty sweetness, without being the least bit thick or cloying as many in this style fall into. Finishes with a sharp, drying bitterness.

Could be one of my favorite DIPAs -
