Thanks, bstyle!

A gorgeous IPA. Very sticky with an incredibly persistent head. Asides from that, this is an above average IPA, and very good by Midwest standards. A nice collection of bitterness along with some dank, citrus, and pine notes. Drinkable, and impressive for the Midwest. That being said, if this was brewed in San Diego, people would overlook this as just another average IPA. The inflated scores on this beer are some of the most ridiculous I've ever seen. Why hype an IPA? Just drink it, fools.

If there's so much going on here, shouldn't it taste better?

Dark amber in color with a huge fluffy white head. Cloudy in appearance. Typical 3 Floyds. Malty and sweet. Good hop juiciness on the finish, but dry. Medium bitterness.

10oz pour, served on tap at the Half Acre Tap Room, poured into a Half Acre stemmed flute. Enjoyed fresh on 10.11.14, review from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a medium amber color, strong hues of reds and oranges, hazy and murky with an off white head, about a finger or so with very nice retention and great lace. The aroma is really piney, dank, earthy, sticky and resinous, quite bitter but with an ample malt backbone. The flavors are in line, sticky pine, dank, earthy, grassy, resinous hoppiness with the same, caramel malt backbone, helps cut the bitterness a bit but the balance is a bit rougher on the tongue. The mouthfeel is nice, sticky is again the best fitting word, full bodied, coats the mouth super well with a dry finish.

Verdict: A very nice DIPA from Half Acre and Three Floyds. The mosaic hop is admittedly one of my least favorite hops, but this was really enjoyable. Piney, bitter, sticky and sappy, the flavor profile is a bit on the heavier and darker side of the spectrum for me, but this hits the spot for a nice hop kick, really nice on tap.
