Pours slightly hazy honey orange with thin ivory head. The aroma is tropical fruits and pine. The flavor follows the nose, but I also get caramel malts and alcohol. A very thick feel for an IPA and overall a wonderful beer that I wish was available here in Minnesota. Thanks Tom for bringing this over.

I poured half of this into a tulip and about the other half into a snifter. The appearance was a nice looking hazy to almost transparent looking golden orange to brown with a decent looking sediment rolling around and within the carbonation. The head is fairly a white to an off-white sort of fluffiness filling the top of the glass evenly and ends up leaving a decent sort of white foamy lacing all around the glass. The smell was an authentic sort of citrus hops to somewhat a nice caramel maltiness that doesn’t leave anything to be desired. It does what it needs to do. The taste was a pure bittersweet and does what it should to please the tastebuds in a very nice showing of citrus to caramel-ness coating them. There is a slight aftertaste of bittersweetness, but isn’t overbearing. There is a quick dry finish. On the palate, she sits about a medium with a sipper sort of sessionability to it. The carbonation is quite fulfilling and nice. Overall, I say this was a great DIPA, well worthy of having again.

Pours a beautiful clear amber. Some slight lacing. Aroma is blueberry and slight pine. Taste is DANK as sh!+. Big blueberry taste with nice pine resin. Mouthfeel is warm but sticky. Great classic DIPA from 3 Floyds!
