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.

From bottle to tulip pint.

A - yellow-to-orange, looks gorgeous actually...frothy white head at about a half-inch, some obvious lacing retention

S - citrus fruit, caramel notes, bready, floral pine

T - slightly sweet, floral, grapefruit, bubblegum, herbal, piney, some caramel sweetness too

M - while this beer might be a little 'not-so-fresh', it was smooth, pleasantly carbonated, medium bodied, creamy

O - this is a really interesting DIPA...I honestly get no burn from that high %, so I'm not sure if it's the lactose added or something else that keeps the booze from being noticeable; it's a slightly sweeter version of Dreadnaught imo; it's extremely smooth and really good.
