Brief impressions from a 1 pint 6 fl oz bottle purchased 2 weeks ago at 3 Floyds. Served cold into a tulip/snifter hybrid glass. Reviewed live as an imperial IPA.

No bubble show forms as it's poured.

APPEARANCE: Head is 1-2 fingers wide. Off-white colour. Average characteristics. Leaves no lacing on the sides of the glass as it recedes.

Body colour is copper-gold of average vibrance. No yeast particulate or hop sediment is visible.

AROMA: Pale malts. Heavy sweetness. Caramalt. Hop profile is underwhelming - floral notes, pine. Off-putting lavender.

Suggests a simple, shallow, overhopped beer with an obnoxious hop profile.

Aromatic intensity is average.

TASTE: Pale malts. Lavender. Caramalt. Hop profile is lackluster - floral hops, vague citrus, some pine, a hint of resins, peach...it's not as complex as it sounds. Poorly balanced and badly built. I'm not liking this much at all. Poor depth of flavour. Average duration and intensity of flavour.

TEXTURE: Smooth, wet, unrefreshing, medium-bodied, overcarbonated. Doesn't elevate the beer as a whole or accentuate specific notes. Mediocre execution.

OVERALL: Downable for what it is, but it's blatantly overhopped and has a really lackluster overall flavour profile. I wouldn't recommend this to others or buy it again. A major disappointment given 3 Floyds' high reputation.

Low D+ (2.31)
