    From the Three Floyds Facebook/Twitter feeds:
    We have released a new beer in bomber bottles today. In The Name Of Suffering - This black India Pale Ale is loaded with hops balanced with delicious maltiness. It was brewed with our friends from the great city of New Orleans in the band EYEHATEGOD. $10 a bottle.

    So metal.

    I bet the same people praising the cost for "only" be $10/bomber are the same ones complaining that Hopslam is $17 per 6-pack.

    I had it on tap last night at the brewpub. Really tasty. First black IPA I've had that makes use of New Zealand hops. It has just a touch of roasted maltiness with tons of juicy passionfruit & tropical notes.

    Most of it has been distro'ed. If I'm not mistaken, the last "one-off" that wasn't distro'ed was Rye da Lightning and that was last spring.

    EDIT: Stack n Stabb wasn't, either. However, I was told they had unanticipated problems with label approval after the beer was bottled, so they couldn't distribute it.

    Maybe if they end up releasing a double ipa, that can be the name, if so i trademark the term hopsick, and expect a few bottles shipped to me for free from 3 floyds

    Cool. I know, in the end, the label was finally approved, so perhaps it did hit disto. By the way, that beer was totally overlooked and really tasty.

    I picked it up a few weeks ago, it definitely wasn't even close to being my favorite BIPA's. It's way to piney in my opinion.

    I was a bit surprised by this beer. It is a good BIPA but definitely NOT what I expected from FFF. It was...... balanced. In typical FFF fashion I was expecting an overly hopped beer but it was pretty balanced with hops and malt. The more I think about it I actually wished it was hoppier. I'm probably grasping at straws here because it is a good beer :D

    This was a good one from FFF, had one last weekend and will probably get more before they sell out. That being said I honestly liked FW wookie jack better... I know, blasphemy but its the truth.

    everyone on here hates three floyds and dark lord..... now if you dont mind I need to get over to the 3F's teku glass, BA beer, and 9 pre-dark lord days threads on here. People bitch and complain about that place and their beer more then anything else yet from some reason I had to wait 20 minutes Saturday morning to buy a glass and a bomber. I tend to think most three floyd haters(z) are like in an Ike and Tina situation, and no matter how many times Ike (3F) hits em and they go online to complain, they ultimately are at the the brewpub next weekend or shutting down servers to buy dark lord day tickets.

    Beer was decent, dreadnaught is about 1600 times better. If ya gotta tick go ahead, but not really worth going out of your way for it.
