Lovely pour, amber with perfect clarity with a small head with little retention
Smells of sweet malt, mango, peach, grass
Delightfully matches the nose, with almost about towards the middle but finishes on a fruitnote
Light mouthfeel, not quite pillowy

Amazing DIPA !! Truly world-class. Taste this whenever you have the opportunity!
Be warned, though that it can be a real palate wrecker, so don't expect to do much beer tasting/sampling after drinking Permanent Funeral :)

Glorious glorious ... took me back to the first time I had Avery's Maharajah. Funeral is an old school-style imperial with a more pronounced hop bitterness upfront then counter balanced with a wallop of malt on the backend. No tip toeing the line here, an imperial in every sense with one exception: no alcohol burn, just incredibly smooth. Loved it- great work here by 3Floyds!

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Three Floyds pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber orange. Moderate amount of bubbles and a solid finger of off white head which settles into a thin patchy layer.

Smell: A very juicy and dank hop driven aroma with a scent of citrus fruit and pine resin. Upfront scent of citrus hops with some grapefruit, orange peel, mango, passion fruit, apricot, tangerine, and melon with some pineapple. Dank and earthy hop scent of pine resin, cannabis, and grass. Malt hints of caramel, grains, and cracker with some yeast. A really good juicy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a very juicy and piney hop dominated taste with big notes of citrus fruit and pine. Ripe and juicy citrus hop notes of orange peel, grapefruit, mango, apricot, tangerine, passion fruit, and melon along with pineapple. Earthy hop notes of pine resin and grass. Background malt notes of caramel, grains, and cracker along with some yeast. A really good juicy taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and oily with a drying finish. Alcohol is hidden fairly well.

Overall: A really great Double IPA. Big citrus and pine flavor that is worthy of a great Grindcore band.
