A: Semi-hazy bright orange with a towering 3 fingers of beautiful foam.

S: Huge aroma of candied mango and tropical fruit with a little bubblegum. Amazing.

T: Follows the nose with lots of dank, juicy tropical fruit, a bit of pine and some sweet bready malt. I love this flavor profile. Bright, vibrant, sweet and refreshing.

M: Crisp, slightly chewy and smooth.

Overall, this is one of my new favorite Imperial IPAs. I wasn't sure any thing could top Pipework's Citra Ninja but this comes pretty close. I can't find a bad thing to say about this beer. I tend to think 3 Floyd's is a bit overrated but this is a masterpiece.

Served in a Three Floyds shaped glass.

A: Poured out a fairly clear, golden color, with a slight chill haze and a bunch of suspended yeast. The head was about a finger or so and settled down after a bit. Awesome!

S: Smell of FFF signature profile right away: Grapefruit, orange, and pomegranate all wrapped up in a nice, neat, rye-infused package.

T: Candy-coated booze upfront, along with a substantial rye component that tried to compete with FFF's hop bitterness but couldn't. Still though, the rye contribution was just about perfect. I got most of it on the late, late aftertaste.

M: Perfectly carbonated, on the sweet side of the spectrum, but it was that "man candy," citrusy, sugariness that keeps people coming back for more and more. The lacing was substantial.

O: I've yet to try a single FFF IPA that didn't rock and this is no exception. One of the best of 2012 in my opinion!
