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 - Clean amber body with ~2" white head when poured aggressively.

S - Citrus, hops, and sweet caramel malt. Nothing overpowers the nose.

T/M - Lots of hops, slightly more pine/grassy notes than citrus. Interestingly sweet and creamy finish/texture.

O - A very drinkable DIPA with a high ABV (well hidden) and a unique texture & flavor. I wouldn't drink this all the time, but it's quite tasty and a little unique. I'm excited that I still have so many 3F's brews to try. Prost!
