Picked up a bomber at Binny's in downtown Chicago on 5-11-18 for $11.99. Bottled on 4-13-18. Stored in the beer fridge upon our return to PHX.

Beer poured golden orange with a very nice white head that has some great hang time.

Nose is fresh citrus forward, very nice.

Taste is grapefruit and orange forward over a large malt body. Finish has a nice medium touch of rind to let you know this is an IPA.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, very refreshing yet very smooth.

Overall a very good double IPA! Back before the craft beer explosion this was one of those holy grail beers and i am happy to finally try it many years later!

L- Has much the same look as the golden beers. Slightly cloudy, but transparent towards the edges. Beautiful to look at, especially with a perfect pour.

S- Not to give anything away, but the beer smells delicious, just as the beer does itself. I think the sight of the beer provides you with an anticipation of whats to come.

T- It's technically an imperial indian pale ale, but it has a unique flavor that has been very seldom overshadowed, IMO. I would highly recommend this beer for something not TOO boozy, but as tasty as it gets.

O-I can see this going to become one of my go to beers when I'm the midwest. I live in the W US, so these are seldom available to us. Hell, just buy a few kegs and make it last a while.

From tasting notes 10/14/17
Had on-tap at 3 Floyds Brewing in Munster, IN

Appearance - Served in a 10oz nonic glass, slight haze and golden orange in  color with a white, solid layer of suds across the surface that thickens around the edges. Lacing coats the glass in massive amounts of broken sheeting.

Smell - Strong citrusy aroma that hits on both grapefruit and orange notes. Faint breadiness. 4

Taste - Follows the nose. Orange upfront with a light grapefruit bitterness. Hints of toasted bread and, once it warms, emerging caramel. Light, lingering grapefruit pith notes.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with light carbonation. Slick, easy drinker with a slightly watery finish.

Overall - An easy drinking DIPA that sacrifices full flavor in favor of drinkability. I much prefer a more complete flavor experience, but to each their own.

Pours dark honey color. Nose reminds me of a barley wine, malty and bitter hop notes. Taste is bitter, citrus, stong malt notes. Mouthfeel is medium, foamy. Tasty beer, thanks @ovaltine!
