hello all. huge IPA lover here but i stumbled upon this thread quite by accident. Necron 99 is arguably one of my most favorite film characters of all time and it turns out he has his very own beer now. for those of you who do not know ... Necron 99 is from an animated sci-fi film from the 70's called "WIZARDS" (by Ralph Bakshi). its pure, badass, vintage, retro, good vs. evil type stuff. also super psychedelic. the use of the word "Scortch" with "style ale" is a play on words ... its the name of the planet where they live. your earnest assessments have had me chuckling as i read them and see how no detail printed on the bottle goes unnoticed. i hope this disambiguation helps. cannot believe i found this beer and furthermore, cannot wait to taste it. cheers all!

9/13/18 (Chicago): $12 six pack purchased at Three Floyds 7/21/18. 12 oz bottle poured into nonic glass. Golden pour, lite white head and lacing, mild carbonation. Nice balanced hops and citrus aroma. Fruity taste most prevalent, hops strong pleasant and balance. Slightly dry and bitter mouth feel, nice IPA for those who like a mild tasting beer. Thin, smooth and easy drinking. Overall good offering.

Pours a clear golden color with a white head.Smel was average citrus and pine hops with a caramel malt finish Taste was floral with some citrus with a sweet candied malt finish. Medium carbonation with fruity/piney/citrus hops none of which stand out. Would never buy a sixer of this , a single or on tap i would do again.

A “good” one from Three Floyd’s. Not the best of their offerings but all in all a solid drinking beer. For the money I would probably chose another option but this one is not bad by any means. If you’ve drank very much Zombie Dust it’s hard to compare their other offerings as they simply aren’t as good. Just my opinion....in the meantime and because this one seems readily available as of late.....enjoy!

Necron 99 brewed by 3 Floyds Brewing Co., With an ABV of 7.30% This American IPA pours out a deep amber color with a small white head. There is also a nice amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. This brew was poured into a pint beer glass. The smell is rich with hop bitterness, earthy grains and malts. There is also a nice rich IPA smell to this brew. Now for the taste, it is Bold with flavors. You first pick up on the hop bitterness, with some spices. Then there is a nice smooth amount of earthy grains and malts. This is a well put together American IPA. I can't get over how smooth this brew goes down, it is really hard to pick up on the 7.10% ABV in this American IPA, it is just that smooth. There is nothing overpowering about Necron 99 , it has a super nice balance to it. The body of Necron 99 is a medium to heavy, but not to heavy. The mouth feel is Bold, Rich, Hoppy, Clean, Smooth and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give Necron 99 a 4.25 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. 3 Floyds Brewing Co., did a super nice job with American IPA.
