Copper colored with an inch of frothy and creamy beige on top. The aroma is a blend of gentle, piney hops and light crackery malt. I'm tasting plenty of orange rind and tangerine with intense bitterness. There's some light crackery malt to keep things from getting out of hand. The mouth is resinous and dry.

Poured from 22oz (650ml) bottle into glass. Bottle on date is '4-11-17'.
Somewhat cloudy, orange/amber body, persistent white cap and considerable lacing.
At its age, aroma is somewhat muddled, with citrus and peach noted.
Taste of mango, peach, and citrus, with caramel. Still very tasty. Good amount of bitterness but tempered by sweetness.
Fuller, mouth coating, slight syrup in the mouth feel.
Outstanding Imperial IPA. Will purchase this any chance I get. Hides ABV very well.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from 22oz bottle into Chimay goblet.

L - Clear-ish amber pour, no head.

S - 3 Floyds unique hop smell, pine, resin, grass, pineapple, tropical fruit.

T - Slightly sweet, strong piney hops, with a clean grain finish

F - Slick hop oils on the tongue, slightly dry at the end.

Another solid 3 Floyds DIPA. Crisp, with clean well-balanced flavors. Strong, but not nuclear to the taste buds.

From @FFFjunkie's BIF box. Poured from 22 oz. bottle into 3 Floyd's pint glass. It pours a cloudy, medium amber color with orange hues, and an enormous, foamy, ecru-colored head and tons of lacing that persisted through the pour. It's really attractive. The nose is malt-forward with subdued tangerine, pineapple, resinous pine, and floral hops. This is delicious! The first thing I taste is fairly sweet malt followed by tart grapefruit and lemon. There follows sweeter fruit: tangerine and pineapple. As if that's not enough the finish is a battle between creamy caramel and fairly biting hops. The overall taste is complex and pleasing; the flavors all blend really nicely. The mouth feel is pleasantly creamy with moderate carbonation and with its 9.5% ABV and 100 IBU, it's not for the faint of hearted. Overall, this DIPA has it all: it's attractive bold, complex flavors, and a pleasing mouth feel. I'm enjoying it immensely!

Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with two fingers white head.
Smells of citrus, orange, pineapple, sweet malty presence.
Tastes starts with the juicy orange, pineapple. Finishes with a somewhat sweet caramel toffee like malt presence.
Very smooth medium body. Alchohol was very well hidden until it started to warm a bit.
Overall a really tasty brew!
