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.

Bottle: Poured a bright golden color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and tropical hops is quite present with some sweet notes being also easily perceptible. Taste is also dominated by huge citrus notes with some tropical notes also noticeable. Sweet notes are easily perceptible and maybe a tad too much for my own taste. Body is about average with somewhat of an oily texture and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Interesting but too sweet for my taste buds and therefore a bit of a disappointment considering the brewery.
