3.79/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

God help me, I've reached a point where 8.x% DIPAs no longer excite me, even if they contain enough alpha acid to strip away herpes rashes. We are all junkies. Or worse. We're like a bunch of zit-faces at one of those sci-fi conventions (the kind where you can meet real-life Yodas). We consume and consume and consume, consume so much we can't separate our identities from our consumption, become so monstrously and emotionally involved in the scene that constitutes our selves that we will never be happy, every little thing our overlords do is met with contempt and complaint. But we keep consuming. We have to. We don't know how to exist if we're not consuming.

So then there's this. It's good. But so are the twenty five thousand other beers that are just like it that have come out in the last two years. The bottle art is pretty shitty, so there's not even that. But the once-outrageous price of ten bucks a bomber is now kinda reasonable, so there's that.

Bright orange. Smells like sugary, thick malt (almost like extract syrup, minus any offputting medicinal nodes), caramel, orange, and grapefruit. Tastes exactly like the aforementioned smells, only the thickness becomes a wee bit offputting as it hits the back of your throat.

3.54/5  rDev -13%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
