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.

As you might guess from the specs this is a very big body IPA. It is definitely typical of 3 Floyd's having the same hop and yeast characteristics, just more in this case.

color - darker gold/ orange

Smell - great hops across the spectrum - Citrus, pine, dank, floral

Taste - Big body, but balanced by the great hops. some maltiness and also grapefruit and citrus that almost make for a crisp finish, but not quite.

mouthfeel - creamy and a little sticky

Bottle to 3F Teku

Thanks to KevanB for this one.

App- Out of the bottle, this is a blend of dark orange with a little golden yellow towards the base. A bigger 1-1/2 in head that was a wee bit frothy forms and then leaves more of a soap bubble film along the side of the glass. A bit of a ring forms and stays for quite a while.

Smell- Its a battle on the nose. I think this one is starting to slide a little but its got a good sweet fruited nose with a little bit of rind and skin tropical must. A bit more mango and guava and balanced by a candy coated sweetness. The malts are fighting to come through and battle with the hops to take over.

Taste- Its a bit more caramel than I wouldve thought. I like the balance on this one between sticky candy hops and a sweet malt backbone with a bit of grassy herbal flavor and more of a tropical fruit note. Its not overtly one way or another, just a good big beer. A sipper for sure. Im halfway done and its creeping on me. For some reason as it warms I am getting a small raisin flavor.

Mouth- A very big and solid medium body on this one. Even bordering on a bit thick. The carbonation level is a bit frothy and riddled with caramel. The residual feel is more of a candy like caramel. Dissipates quickly and leaves more sweetness and hop oil around.

Drink- Well Kevan has struck again and landed a long time want for me. Its always good to have some friends in the midwest. I enjoyed this beer and was pretty damn good. A bigger DIPA for sure.
