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.

poured from 22oz bottle into teku.

A - A delightful peach/apricot orange with a bright 2 finger white head that dissipates quickly. Nice ring around my glass with good lacing.

S - Big floral hops, with orange and ripe pineapple. Some good sweet honey and more floral sweetness continue in the aroma. Some light herbal leafy and earthy scents.

T - Nice citrus and blood orange up front followed by honey and sweet bread. More ripe pineapple honey that finishes into a sharp bitterness. I really enjoy IIPAs that are flavored like this.

M - Smooth and rich for a IIPA. Carbonation is medium and there is a nice slick oily feel with bitterness left on my tongue.

O - This is well balanced with big juicy bitter hops and a wonderful sweetness. Wish I could find this easily in WI as it is well worth it. Reminds me of Toppling Goliath Sosus.
