This is a fantastic DIPA! This one is worth he effort to get in my opinion. The over the top hoppiness and malty goodness destroys your tastebuds! This is the best 3f's has to offer in my opinion.

I get a pineapple flavor and it's very nice. A bit bitter after taste. Not as good as APW but still a great dipa if you like citrus.

An amber/grapefruit color, light comes through it like sunlight through a pulled down shade. A big, slightly off-white head leaves chunks of lace behind as it drops to a rocky, broken film.
Smell is sweet, hoppy, spices and a hint of brown sugar. Great balance.
Taste is a sugary hoppy blend with citrus and herbal notes with just enough spices to add another level of deliciousness. Great balance here, too.
Fairly full bodied, light effervescence. Sticky in the mouth, smooth in the swallow. Wish I had more than one.

That's a hoppy beer. This is a true double IPA. Fresh on tap at Three Floyd's.

I've seen this 3-F's beer several times and could never pull the trigger. I finally owned up to this one after seeing it was only 2 weeks old.

A - Vibrant orange color. Quite opaque from all the dry hops but not as cloudy as some of their DIPAs with a rocky white head and moderate lacing.

S - Extremely strong hop fragrance with tons of dankness and citrus fruits. There is some orange, apricot, pineapple, resin, and pine too. Could smell it as I opened the bottle. If you like the big West-Coast IPA vibe this one is excellent!

T - BIG hop flavor with a full Yakima Valley hop character with an expansive host of flavors. Again the huge dankness really hits strong along with the typical citrus and then some apricot fruit flavor that makes this one unique to their others. There is some malt but it's all masked by the hop explosion. The bitterness is strong which I believe probably accentuates the dank and resin characteristics.

M - Medium to high mouth-feel with medium carbonation. It is definitely balanced but the massive amount of everything from the sweet flavors to the bitter bite just makes it sit heavier than some other DIPAs.

Overall, a very delicious beer. Amazing aroma, flavor, feel, appearance, and anything else you would desire in a DIPA. Though I couldn't drink more than two of these bombers in one sitting. This one isn't quite as good as some of their other DIPAs but if you like dank, resin, citrus, and apricot this one is very good. I would opt for one of their other DIPAs but if you've already had all the others and are given the opportunity, you should try this one.

Looks a hazy light orange. Smells like straight pineapple. Taste is better than smell, sweet at first with a bitter finish. Never understood what "dances on the tongue" meant before drinking this beer. Great double ipa!

I am drinking this with three weeks on it, so take that into consideration. I like it, a little pineapple, bitter dankness. I have had this twice now, and Arctic Panzer Wolf twice. I think the Arctic beats this one on richness and balance, but I'm not going to war over it.

Almost a deep gold cloudy looking brew. Smells like citrus. Doesn't taste at all citrusy though. Interesting round bitterness that dances on the tongue. Relatively smooth finish. 8.5% but doesn't feel overly boozey.

Look - Not see through but not opaque. Dull, darker gold. Pretty thick white head with good lacing.

Smell – Pineapple or other tropical fruits. Bread. Dank hops.

Taste – Pineapple transfers to the taste. That transfers to a breast taste that. There is a faint bitter, dank hop taste in the finish. It isn't what I expected but you don't want all of them to be the same.

Feel – Very smooth and creamy. This is where this beer shines.

Overall – I like how different it is from other Floyds IPAs. How many ales/IPAs/DIPAs/IIPAs can you make? Pineapple.

More body and malt than hops in the nose or palette. Good but from from best 3F Double IPA

Muddled and grassy. Really bitter with no real distinguishable flavors. Nice mouthfeel and nose is nice, but I couldn't get over how unpronounced the hop bill was.

22oz bottle poured into nonic. Hazy golden-orange with floaties and a stiff finger plus of white head that lasts nearly the entire drink. Some streaky lacing. Aroma is citrus hop, grapefruit, bready malt, maybe a hint of caramel. Taste is medium bitterness with citrus and floral notes, spicy rye (some say onion; I don’t get that), and light sweetness from that bready/caramel character. Medium bodied, slick, resinous texture, moderate to soft carbonation, bitter drying finish.

Not your winter ale. Put it away until it warms up outside.

At two months old I get the impression this is s slight shadow of itself. The hop aroma has faded a bit but still the juicy elements comments through. Citrus and a bit of pine. Look is a cloudy haze of orange, 1/8 inch head retention. Taste follows the aroma, very citrisy, orange, maybe a bit of grapefruit rind. Definitely a change from other three Floyd dipas I've had, and very welcomed. I'll revisit fresh and adjust ratings accordingly.

22oz bottle dated 10/31/14 poured into a FFF Teku glass
A: Vibrant orange color with a lingering one+ finger head
S: Lots of tropical fruit, citrus (especially orange) with pine and herbs in the background
T: Quite herbal; a couple months old yes but it tastes like it's lost quite a bit of freshness. Few of the fruit flavors come through
M: Medium-bodied, bitter
O: The nose is the best part. I'll try to drink my next bottle fresher and see if it's better- overall solid but not my favorite FFF DIPA

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Pale amber body, and slightly clear nearly crystal, but with some light fine carbonation, and a nice big lemon hue to it. Head is off white, thick and tall at four fingers easily but not out of control. Big retention and thick clumping and lots of staying power. Real good looking brew.

A fantastic hop aroma hits the nose wonderfully. Lots of juiced fruits and herbs coming off this. Hints a sort of wood and cedary herbal fruit tropical note, nicely set with a very mild sweetness that almost comes off like powdered sugar. Almost hits a toasty malt note somewhere behind as well, but as expected a big hop forward note, and a great one. Excellent hop bouquet.

Palate comes just wonderfully. Juiced front and neutral controlled lime bitterness, then opens up with a great spicy note slowly with big aromatic hints of wood and juice. Leafy green and black like tea herbs seem to come off with a juiced tropical subtle note or is that tangerine?, and a hint of mild caramel. Big oily and controlling finish, with a huge mint mouthwash hop breath left over. Juiced mouthfeel, even just a light touch of peppery like carbonation that just makes everything pop on the palate. Hints of light caramel manage to come out even as well.

Wonderfully unique and different hop angled brew that is well in control, with a diverse range of flavors that joyfully bounce around. Really love this beer and it's hop angle.
