look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice.

Appearance: Pours a somewhat hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of rising bubbles. One finger of white head that settles into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A lively citrus forward aroma with a nice complex mix of fruit esters. Big hop scent upfront with hints of citrus orange peel, pineapple, mango, grapefruit, apricot, tangerine, and lemon. Also some grassy hops and pine resin spice. Some subtle undertones of white wine characteristics with a hint of grape. A fair amount of sugar. Bready soft malts with hints of cracker, biscuit, caramel, and yeast. A little scent of honey is also in the mix. Very good aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a ripe and juicy taste of citrus hop fruit esters. Big taste of ripe and bitter hops upfront with notes of citrus orange, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, and apricot. Along with the citrus is a taste of spicy pine resin and grass. A little hint of white grapes. Soft bready malts with notes of cracker, biscuit, caramel, grain, and yeast. Some sugar and honey adds some more sweetness. Very citrus forward, tropical, and juicy. A great West Coast style IPA taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, chewy, and fairly oily. Alcohol heat is hidden very well.

Overall: Another great imperial IPA from Three Floyds. Great tropical citrus hop flavors.
