Absolutely incredible. Usually collaborations are kind of gimmicky but Permanent Funeral defies all expectations. In my opinion, Permanent Funeral is better than Zombie Dust by inundating your palate with fruitful hops. Furthermore, the high ABV is well masked by the balance of the sweet and bitterness. Cheers!

I am a little confused on this one. It's a 100 IBU beer, so I expected tons of hoppy fruity notes on the nose and lots of hoppy bitterness on the finish. I didn't really get either. The nose was pretty basic and the taste was more like an APA. I felt like I got more booze taste than hops.

A clear golden color with a nice off-white head and good rentention. Big citrus (Orange and grapefruit) and pine resin aroma. Flavor follows closely with a nice malty sweetness to provide great balance and smoothness. Finished very clean with alcohol completely hidden. A great big IPA from 3 Floyds.

This beer smells great; the taste is a little bit less impressive. Overly malty, as is typical of Midwest IPA's, and a bit too sweet for my liking but still a solid brew.
