Pours a hazy and grainy orange. Smell was full of hops with citrus notes and belgian yeasts with a malt backbone. The overall taste is strong and uncompromising. Hints of orange and vanilla finish off the west coast hops and belgian yeasts. It's out there, but I think quite enjoyable. Little more refined in the feel than I remember shark pants being

Bottle dated 2/20/18. Pours lighter shade of amber, a bit of head remains with small and medium bubbles. Smells of bubblegum, bread, banana. Taste is bubblegum, tropical fruit, bready aftertaste. Mouth feel is very carbonated. Great job marrying the IPA and Belgian styles.

Super fresh Belgium DIPA purchased at Binny's today. .
..had it last year and it was clear the bottle had sat on a shelf too long. This is a quintessential 3F's collab and in my humble opinion one of best examples of the style you'll find.
