BEER INFO

Brewed by:
3 Floyds Brewing Co.
Indiana, United States
3floyds.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.00%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
9.5-11.0% ABV, 100 IBUs - This complex double India pale ale has an intense citrus and floral hop aroma balanced by a velvety malt body which has been augmented with lactose milk sugar. With this different take on an IPA we have brewed an ale that is both pleasing to drink and, once again, “not normal.” Cheers! June release.

Good brew. Pours a dark orange with a big white head. Smells of hoppy dankness and tropical fruits. The fruits really come through in the first few sips. The lactose sugar really keeps the hops at bay. Good stuff.

2015 vintage; drank 6/25/15 on draft @ Fischman's.

Semi-opaque light orange appearance.

Off-white head; nice lace.

Pineapple & sweet orange citrus notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Sweet orange citrus & pineapple flavors up front; mildly bitter grapefruit bite on the finish. No booze heat. A nice DIPA.

Intense and tasty - probably a bit too malty but can't complain
