I'll start off by saying this is one of the best imperial IPAs I've ever had the pleasure of putting on my palette. Bottled on 01-Apr-2016 and poured into a snifter glass on 11-Apr-2016. Immediately hit with aromas of pineapple and orange zest. Incredible feel along with fruity hop character and almost no bite -- especially for the high ABV. This is all accomplished unlike any other IPA I've tasted. I'll be making the trip back to Indiana for this, no doubt.

Zombie Dust has a slight edge, albeit VERY slight edge over this wonderful beer. I think the hoppyness is less profound, but yet hits the back of the palette after what seems like an extended amount of time.

Like all the 3 Floyds a great name and cool label. Poured from a 22 oz bomber purchased at brewery. I was a little disappointed by this one. Pours a hazy orange. Smells of citrus and hops. Taste was a little off, citrus, lemon, lime. Not a bad beer, but not one of the best I have had from 3 Floyds.
