Purchased a bomber from the brewery for $10
Pours an orange hue, tiny bubbles rush towards the top, and a large head quickly recedes leaving fairly sticky lacing.
In the nose is caramel malt, alcohol, grapefruit and/or orange ride, and more alcohol. Doesn't smell great.
The taste, unfortunately, does not live up to the expectations for a 3 Floyds IPA. Like the smell, the alcohol is overwhelming (despite being a relatively (for a 3 Floyds DIPA) low ABV of around 8%). The grapefruit flavor has an unpleasant herbal quality. It's good, but not great.
Mouthfeel: Burn from the alcohol, fairly heavy, it wouldn't hurt for it to be a bit more crisp. It's a sipper.
Overall: While better than your average DIPA, it's overall a weak offering from 3 Floyds. I'd much prefer their Sabertooth or Dreadnaught DIPAs. Some will love it as it is unique, but the herbal and strong grapefruit flavor make this one quite imperfect for me.
