Poured into a tall clear glass. Has a hazy, deep golden-orange color with a thick 2" fluffy head. Good lacing.

Smells of melon and white grapes. Bread malt, caramel, tropical fruit and citrus, apricot, tangerine, and grapefruit.

Caramel mixed with the orange and grapefruit peel. The tangerine is present once in the mouth a little bit and swallowed. Taste has a body that is piney. Other notes include mango, lemon zest, sweet hard candy, and brown sugar. Little alcohol taste. Feels very rich and smooth.

Necron 99 is an apricot orange beverage with a bit of chill induced haze running throughout the body. Tiny bubbled streams of carbonation run, from what seems, like every surface of the glassware. The foam rises slowly with a widget effect like a Guinness and eventually settles at a robust, meringue-like two fingers in height. That head is gowing nowhere anytime soon. Chunks plaster the glass after each drink.

Floyds, using some of them newfangled hops again. The nose is utterly unique. Big melon and white grape off the bat. Honeydew to be exact. There's a bright spicy bite toward the back that's both herbal and alcoholic before turning fairly citric as it warms. A cake like malt sweetness, when combined with the citric qualities, brings to mind orange marmalade. This is interesting.

The flavor doesn't quite live up to the vivid brightness of the nose. The melon and white grape are present but have fallen behind the citrus. It's got a couple drops of vanilla in there as well. That marmalade quality is back, which is nice. There's a complex maltiness that comes across as yellow cake and white bread crust. As it warms that herbal hoppiness comes across on the finish like a buzzsaw. It's good beer, it's just not as seamless as the nose suggested.

The body sits squarely in the moderate portion, weight-wise. It has a full plushness thanks to that glass filling carbonation that I mentioned earlier. It's nicely bittered on the backend through the swallow leading up to, and surpassing moderate. It's a taste bud destroyer, this beer.

Necron 99 doesn't fit into those world class beers that 3 Floyds brings to market. What it does do is fit into the wildly interesting, experimental hoppy beers that you usually find at the brewpub. It's vivid and bright with a ton of depth with perfectly dialed in carbonation. I've bought this beer in the past and I'll buy it again in the future.

Sweet and balanced IPA.Although this beer has really intense labeling and naming, it is actually a very pleasant and easy drink. Pours sorta cloudy and pretty dark yellow/orange considering it is an IPA. Pretty to look at, almost bronze with really nice lacing. Smell is very faint but pleasant. Fun and sweet which balances the hop character, which is mild, and the ABV, which is generous. Sweetness is not malty, rather it is almost fruity This is one of the IPAs out there that demonstrates the diversity of the style and is a great beer especially for people who aren't into IPAs or think they all taste the same.
