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.
