Beautiful hazy orange yellow brew, picturesque pure white 1 inch head with perfect lacing.

Only faint piney and citrus smells.

Nice cracker and maltiness to start, followed by orange peel and citrus flavors. Very smooth although alcohol punches threw. Long citrus hops to finish.

Big, well constructed ipa with supreme balance to keep it ahead of the pack

Pours a gorgeous golden color with a bit of suspended hop haze and a creamy white head that provides significant lacing. The nose is bright, juicy citrus, some melon, and a nice malt sweetness.

The taste is led by the aforementioned juicy citrus, with clementines and grapefruit flavors proving a nice bitterness that is balanced by the melon and oat sweetness from the substantial malt base.

The mouthfeel is full and drying, fitting this old school DIPA slightly influenced by new school flavors. I don’t like beer comparisons in general, but this is an updated Dreadnaught, IMHO. I absolutely LOVE Dreadnaught, so this is my sweet spot (pun intended).

Picked-up a single can at Craft Beer Cellar in Waterbury for about five dollars. Canned on date of 1/22/22. My fifth brew from these guys. Solid beer, tastes more like a West Coast IPA to me, not too boozy.

Here to set the record straight. Totally worth buying. Super grassy bear. Smells grassy taste is even more. Very approachable DIPA that doesn’t leave you questioning if you could have another. You would enjoy at least 2 or 3 more. Very drinkable and slightly earth DIPA. Trust me bro.

Pours a hazy golden color with a small frothy head and moderate lacing.

Smells of grassy floral hops with some citrus.

Tastes of slightly tart grapefruit with sweeter orange and lemon. It has a slightly bitter finish.

Medium light body with light carbonation. Clean dry mouthfeel.

This is a very drinkable juicy NEIPA.

For my money this is exactly what it claims to be, a juicy good-tasting DIPA. It’s a bit bitter, has that distinct DIPA alcohol sweetness, and grapefruit and guava flavors.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Packaged Jan 5th 2022.

Simple forming IPA, off white and three fingers of head managing slightly soapy and fine retention out of the can. Body color is slightly dark amber, with some noticeable carbonation obscured by a noticeable bit of haze in the mix.

Solid hop forward aroma, light sensing herbs and earth, with a somewhat perfume floral sweetness which is quite nice. Malt bill hints a little pasty like in the background.

Palate makes a really good impression. Juiced up mouthfeel with some decent malt thickness providing an excellent hop flavored platform. Mid palate comes in with surprising more fruit qualities from unexpected places. Juice up tropical and melon notes, even touches of candy jolly rancher like sweetness. More earth and touches of good thick bitterness on the finish. More unique flavors, guava, passion fruit, and candy like sweetness abound.

Great nice little surprise here, and delicious.

From the bottom of the can: "PKGD ON 01/05/22 Q0486"

Appearance: The body is very hazy but light to medium gold in color. Numerous sizes of suspended solids are visible in the beer. The smaller ones are ok but there are quite a few larger ones. The overall appearance seems inconsistent. The head is large, white, and frothy. The beer has very good head retention and excellent lacing.

Aroma: There is a mixture of cabbage and grapefruit. It smells a bit like a freezer that is iced over as well.

Taste: Cabbage up front. Towards the middle there is a bit of garlic and onion mixed with a touch of citrus.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium mouthfeel and it's a bit chewy. Bitterness feels like overcooked cabbage. Not overly pleasant but there are remnants of citrus rind.

Overall: As a whole it just isn't that very pleasant of a beer. It has a bunch of vegetal flavor which comes across mostly as cabbage, then it has some odd aromas. The whole beer is overly savory and just tastes strange. I bought a four-pack of this and I have had two just to make sure the first one wasn't a fluke...I won't buy it again. I don't recommend it.

The look is emotional sunset yellow-orange. Golden. Pristine. The smell is strong with tropical fruits. Malty. Sweet. King's Hawaiian bread. The taste is very 3 Floydsian. I recognize it immediately. Tropical fruit, with their signature euphoric bitterness. The mouthfeel is creamy, with medium carbonation, and that tornado/lightning mouth punch that 3 Floyds Brewing owns. I love 3 Floyds Brewing. They have their own table in Valhalla, where IPAs flow endlessly. This is an example why.

DIPA action from old money in a new market here. American Double IPA by 3 Floyds.

Even pouring just a little bit and there is a bit of flaky suspension going on. The color is deep orange and the foam is sticky and white. Good retention as well.

Subdued aroma of caramel, orange and light pineapple potpourri, and minor hints of alcoholic strength. It’s appreciable.

Lime, grapefruit, diluted pineapple juice, mango, maybe papaya? Caramel-malt like qualities are very submissive to the hoppiness, but still complimentary along with its bitter character.

The alcoholic strength here creates quite the base for its flavor. It feels a half-step less bitter than it’s IBUs would suggest for me but it is still quite strong. I like the carbonation it presents for a beer of such size.

Very good to great work as usual for 3 Floyds. I feel a little spoiled that we get them now.

16oz can pkg date 1/05/22 into a Spiegelau glass.
L: Pours med-light hazed yellowish orange w/a creamy eggshell white 3" head. Good carbonation, creamy tall cap, distinctive lacing & banding. Some moving sediment throughout.
S: Radiates citrus, sweet bread, papaya, mango, light alcohol as beer warms.
T: Like a fruit punch: papaya, orange zest, tangerine, navel orange, light pineapple, gentle pine resin, caramelized malts and green melon. It is kind of tart, juicy and becomes more smooth as the beer warms w/alcohol.
F: A bright, clean med-bodied mouthfeel w/a med-fast finish & linger that is slightly drying. Has a delicate bite but is not too sharp.
O: An assertive & glowing tropical juicy DIPA that is hop frwd and extremely tasty. Full flavored & easy drinking. It is excellent in it's style.

13 oz tulip glass pour at Lures Bar & Grille. This is a bold, brash (D)WCIPA. Sweet tropical fruit, citrus, piney bitterness, and a stiff boozy caramel malt backbone. Mouthfeel is a little bit hot. Overall it's solid but not something I'd seek out again.
