Consumed 12/18/15

A: Medium orange-gold, with a blend of honey and tangerine tones - hazy - pours with a medium-large off-white head, gradually fades to a small, nearly solid but mostly wispy cap - keeps a medium sized cap, leaves streaks of lacing

S: Citrusy and juicy, and not as brutally agressive as some other FFF DIPAs - orange and grapefruit flesh, juice, pith - straight-up orange juice - dank and resinous notes - sticky tropical fruits, tropical fruit juice, touches of mango - herbal aromas, some pine, some mint - pale and caramel malts at the base, with some caramelized malts and sweetness

T: Citusy, hoppy fruit juice cocktail - huge citrus flavor, with orange juice, grapefruit juice, oil, zest, and pith - tropical flavors, fruit juice, mango, and something like banana - dank and resinous flavors - herbal notes and dry pine - hints of mint - medium level of bitterness (tame for FFF standards) - pale and caramel malts - some sweetness from caramel malts, touches of toffee, but dry overall

M: Medium body, smooth, a bit oily, sticky, medium to low carbonation

O: Into the mouth for war

Three Floyds makes a lot of DIPAs. War Mullet is memorable because of it's slightly lower ABV and its interesting blend of hops. As with everything FFF brews, it is definitely worth trying.

Transported a few bombers via plane from IN to Austin, TX. Still delicious :)

Bottled on 10-30-14

A - Cloudy Amber body with clean white ~2" head. Lacing holds well throughout tasting.

S - Smell was a little less pungent than most 3F's DIPAs. Citrus, malt, and hops seemed well balanced.

T/M - Malt, sweet burnt sugars, citrus (orange more than pineapple/lemon), pine/grass. Good creamy/chewy mouth-feel. Low ABV makes for a very clean and drinkable beer.

O - Sweet malt forward taste with nice citrus and pine finish. Good DIPA with a little more malt and pine than other offerings. Not my favorite 3F DIPA, but they have so many good ones to choose from. Still quite tasty and worth checking out. Prost!

Gorgeous orange yellow with nice pillowy head dissipating somewhat quickly. Lots of sweet malts and hops n the nose. Taste follows. Bright citrusy floral hop display. Great mouth feel. Very good DIPA.
