The fruit really burst though on this one. The hops kinda over take the malty sweetness. However, both are prevalent. Very good beer but not my favorite style ipa.

My wife and I were returning home from Thanksgiving and 3 Floyd's was on the way and at a good time for an early dinner (finally!). I had been wanting to visit forever, but without success until this day.

This beer pours a cloudy, orangish amber color that displays a high carbonation and an off white, taupe, frothy head that dissipates slowly to a rocky layer with a neck. 4/5 The aroma is very tropical and features notes of pineapple, papaya, mango, passion fruit and tangerine. There is a light malt undertone that provides a dash of grainy sweetness, but the hop presence really dominates here. 4.25/5 The flavor is every bit as awesome and hoppy as the aroma. Tropical fruit notes of pineapple, papaya, mango, passion fruit, and tangerine all come out in a blend of tropical fruitiness and sweetness that keeps the bitterness from the hops to a moderate level that lingers moderately after swallowing. As the beer warms a bit of buttered white bread and sourdough bread both come out, balancing the hops and providing a bit of maltiness to the flavor. 4.25/5 A moderate carbonation burn hits the tongue from all over and leads into a medium body that features moderate dryness with a lingering dryness after swallowing. 4/5 This is really an awesome DIPA that is crazy fruity and just sweet enough to balance the hops and keep them from becoming overwhelming. Based on the flavors, I would say that the brewmaster(s) added the hops at the absolute perfect time to achieve this balance since I don't taste a ton of malty sweetness. 4.25/5

Bottled 7/25/14; drank 8/13/14 @ the Yarchives.

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Orange murkiness.

Eggshell head; frothy lace.

Grapefruit, orange & frost in the nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Orange, mango & grapefruit in the flavor, but the finish is simply too bitter to enjoy them. Close, but no cigar.

Not sure of the bottling date, but it was maltier than I was expecting. CSB was still a fantastic and enjoyable beer. Malty with a little hop bit at the end. A little spiciness was mixed in there as well. Definitely a full bodied beer. 3F left no doubt that this brew was a DIPA.
