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 a bomber into a tulip. Nearly opaque hazy yellow-orange with tall off-white head that settles to one finger of foam. Bubbles rise throughout the drink. Aromas of pineapple, citrus rind, floral hops, and cotton candy. Flavors follow with orange and sugar forward then finishing with a dry, full-bodied, boozy, hop bitterness.

Pours a hazy golden/orange color with a deep white head. The initial taste here comes off as slightly off milk. As you get into it this heavily hopped DIPA opens up with further complexities. Lactose element gives this a creamy and smooth mouthfeel. Almost like a cask ale. A good beer - one worth seeking out once a year

Glowing gold, sustained white head. Candied yam, delicious cotton candy, sticky hop. Boozy but so smooth, choppy, and grapefruity. Amazing
