22oz bottle from the Three Floyds store (Munster, IN). 10.00. No bottle date but I should hope they aren't selling out of date product at the brewery. Served in a Three Floyds teku.

Pours clear bright slightly orange hued gold with almost teo full fingers of pale head. A good bit of lace webbing.

Smell is dominated by those trademark Three Floyds hops! Mango, peach, orange and some nice inviting malt sweetness.

The tropical hops kick off with a big bitter dose of orange, citrus rind, peach, mango, sweet bread, fresh cut grass, pine and honey/caramel. Almost zero noticeable alcohol. The booze is hidden in the tropical forrest of hop goodness.

Nice oily slick medium full body with light zesty carbonation. Sweet orange and slightly bitter grass finish.

If I'd known how much I would enjoy this I'd have purchased more than one for sure. This is an outstanding DIPA with plenty of tropical citrus hop character, a nice sweet malt body and nicely balanced body. Very well done and worth checking out while it's still around.

Big thanks to yeahnatenelson for this one. Totally did not expect it. Fantastic label art.

A: Pours a beautiful sunset orange with a a slightly off-white creamy head. As it warms, it becomes quite transparent

S: Bright citurs. Lemon peel, sweet tropical fruit, pineapple. A sort of east meets west DIPA.

T: Lemon, sweet tropical fruit, grape fruit. Definitely a swetter DIPA with a fair amount of bitterness to balance it out. The 10.5% ABV? NO WHERE to be found. Perhaps a SLIGHT warming, but goes down almost too easily.

M: A little more than medium. Carbonation is spot on.

O: A great DIPA. This thing drinks like a 8% beer. Tons of flavour, great aroma. It really reminds me of a HF DIPA meeting a hardcore west coast DIPA. I cannot pin point anything overtly wrong with this beer. Perhaps the ONLY thing is that it isn't showing me anything SUPER different from some other great DIPAs I've had. With that said, it is done almost perfectly. A great amalgamation of DIPA styles.

10 oz. poured into a FFF Rastal on March 29th, 2013

A - Burnt orange, sunset coloring. Soapy sticky eggshell head with a pink hue. light lacing and plentiful alcohol legs.

S - Big citrusy orange marmalade, fruity bath salts, light honeysuckle, banana, pineapple, golden delicious apple, alcohol phenols, mint leaves.

T - Pine zest, orange peel, peach, pear, slightly deeper fruit quality like a bing cherry, grapefruit picks up at mid palate and pushes through the finish. Touch of honey at the back as well.

M - Medium body, perfect carbonation, dry finish. Zero heat even with this high abv.

F - Initial impressions were great, but the aroma actually worsened as it gave way to the higher alcohol. Deserves a 5 for the label alone, and while its not utterly spectacular this is recommendation that requires no hesitation.

22oz, March/April '13
Riedel tulip

A: Hazy bright orange color. Half finger of bright white head. Good carbonation. Leaving sticky lacing.

S: Dripping tropical fruit punch of hops: papaya, mango, tangerine, etc. pineapple. Overripe peach. Little touch of sweet assertive malts behind it too.

T: Big burst of hop bitterness on the tip of the tongue. Definitely those fruity tropical notes. Papaya and mango are really coming through. Love that the malt bill is thinner than other FFF DIPA. Finish is dry but with lingering fruit cocktail like sweetness.

M: Larger side if medium. Thinner than other FFF DIPA which is nice.
