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.

A: Pours hazed and cloudy reddish/orange color. A two finger white head forms, and recedes in a minute with light lace.
S: Orange rind, zesty, spicy, and floral. Burnt caramel malts and toast. Lingering bitterness is strong.
T: Orange zest and floral hops up front. Soapy and oily, like most of Three Floyds hoppy beers for me. Caramelized and burnt sugars along with some toast. Then a strong lingering bitterness. Kind of a mess, and all over the place.
M/D: A full body and moderate carbonation. Sticky, lightly resinous, and oily. Plenty of bitterness, and alcohol to go around. Not really hard to drink, just not something I want to come back to often.
Not bad, but I have had much more rounded and enjoyable DIPA's. Nice to try once, but that is about it for me.
