BEER INFO

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

Style: American Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.60%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

ABV varies by batch.

100 IBU

A-Cloudy orange, nicely carbonated two finger head, with some lacing

S-Toast, malt, the lactose is present an interesting. Rather citrus and floral as well

T-has some malt, ends with citrus and floral hops. The lactose is present, and makes the balance interesting. Has a nice bitterness to it.

M-Medium bodied, nice carbonation, hop resins

O-The lactose is a very interesting addition to the beer. Not sure what to think if it yet, but the combination makes it worth a try.

Big old thanks to hugonaut for another winner!

Sort of a hazy pear body with a frothy eggshell head that quickly swells to fill the glass. Sticky webs of lace form all around the glass.

Intense citrus hops fume from the glass. Candi sugar, melon, some tropical fruits... really nice I think. I'd never guess that this one hovers around 10%...

It takes an unusual turn on the palate. The sharp citrus flavors are cut with a medicinal kind of astringency. Marmalade, vanilla, pale fruits, pineapple... nice complexity. It's unique, that's for sure. I wish the bright hop aromas would translate more clearly on the palate though.

Very glad to finally try this one - thanks Tom!
