Wow. Another huge thanks to Joe for this, just one of the many incredible beers he's sent over the years. Cheers mang!

Permanent Funeral. A gorgeous and classic looking IPA. Bright burnt orange with an off white cap that won't quit. An eerie clarity, as the shadows of my finger tips look suspended through the amber body, like a hand on the backside of a window from a dimly lit room in a horror film. That froth that was once above leaves a smooth patch on the surface with a blanket of lace on the glass.

The pop of the cap was accompanied by an immensely pungent aroma. Digging in, an orange marmalade dusted in pure can sugar is met with oozing evergreen sap. Toasted white bread crusts and zested tangerine peels represent themselves well, as all of these scents hold true from start to finish.

Orange rock candy hits first. Fleshy citrus is defined in the foreground. Clementine comes to mind. There's even an earthy note coming through, like a meaty mushroom along with green onion. Sounds crazy but it's wonderful. I would guess there's some Centennial here. The finish is extreme with herbal and wet pine influence.

Extreme is a good word to carry on with here. This beast starts off sweet, even slightly tart like a true citrus influence would. It's slick and resinous, but despite it's 10.5% tag, it's smooth and even slightly crisp. Warming... absolutely. Bitter as fuck too, just the way I like it. No need to continually drink. Sip, and enjoy the rides between.

This here is a hell of a "Pale Ale". DIPA, TIPA perhaps? Who cares? It's great, and how could it not be. Three Floyd's deserves it's reputation, and beers like this prove it. This is almost American Barleywine meets IPA, and it suits me perfectly on this fridgid and unforgiving night.

Cheers.

22oz bottled 11/16/18 (17 days ago) poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass at fridge temp. The beer pours mostly bright orange tinted light amber with sticky off white head. The head recedes to an island and leaves plenty of lacing. The aroma is major citrus with tangerine, grapefruit, orange and lime all coming through. The taste is more of the same with a semisweet start of candied orange, tangerine, and pine laid over a soft honey malt background. The bitterness really comes out mid-palate on and the finish is mostly dry due to the huge hop oil shellac that coats the tongue. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and adequately carbonated. Overall, excellent. Very well made, beautiful, fragrant, delicious DIPA.
