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

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.

A - Cloudy, deep orange hue with a retaining head that leaves lots of lace around the glass;
S - Citrus forward with a sweet, malty backbone;
T - Balanced hops with a malty finish, clean and no real alcohol heat, very drinkable for the style;
M - Crisp upfront, fades to that mouth coating reminiscent of milk stouts (it's the milk sugar, duh);
O - Subtly different expression of the same idea that's come to epitomize FFF Brewing: pale, hoppy, drinkable, and reliable, yet ultimately boring. I can't give too much credit to a brewery that fails to (ever) surprise me.

A - Pours a cloudy orange with a one-finger foamy white head. Light amount of sticky lacing.

S - Aromas of piney hops, bright citrus, and sweet malts.

T - Flavors follow the aroma. Lots of orange and grapefruit upfront. The citrus is followed by a big amount of malty sweetness. The piney hops come through in the finish producing a nice bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice silky mouthfeel. Dry finish.

O - Another winner from Three Floyd's. Very drinkable despite the ABV. Would definetly drink again.
