    Beautiful clear copper pour, tight white head which leaves copious amounts of lacing. Earthy hopped and biscuity malt aroma, light hint of caramel, touch of roastedness, a touch more earthy hops. Taste is a great balance (yes, a balanced Three Floyds) of light caramel sweetness and earthy hops bitterness, very pleasant English IPA for certain, nice bitter linger with a caramel touch too. I really liked this beer; could drink lots of these bastards. Decidedly British.

    A nice ipa with slight oak undertones. Nice beer without being anything overly special. It drank easy and was a pleasant experience all around, not as heavy handed on hops as most 3F ipa's.

    22 oz. bomber poured into a pint glass presents an orange hued IPA with a quarter inch white head with significant lacing and nice retention. The nose doesn't give much away with this one - not much discernable. This one wins with an intense bitter flavor and crisp mouthfeel. Very biscuity and sweet, like expected from an English style IPA, but the bitterness really balances the sweet malt nicely. The earty hops make this one a winner. A tad pricey, but all of the FFF have a high price point and almost all of them are winners.

    Bottled@Monks Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Amber colour, small head. Aroma is caramel malts, some fluity and floral hops along with mild alcohol and some slight wooden notes as well. Flavour is quite much the same. Quite to the sweeter side, but still very pleasant and drinkable.

    a unique take on an english style ipa for sure, with lots of malt, biscuity character, toasty, but with a strong bitter hop finish and toasted oak undertones. very well done. no way i thought it was 9%.

    A solid pour into my 25cl tulip glass produces a three finger thick, light tan colored head. The beer is a clear, honey-amber color that shows a lightly hazed, amber-copper hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells quite crystal malt influenced (caramel, and some toasted pale malt notes) and there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of hop character left here. My second pour of this beer has me noticing a touch of herbal hop aromatics though.

    This beer is full bodied, with an almost sticky heft to it. There is a definite bitter hop presence here that doesn't quite cut through the malt. Herbal hop flavors (notes of lemon balm, pine and a touch of hemp) linger throughout the flavor profile intertwined with the bitterness. The finish has a nice malt character to it that makes me think of toasted pale malt and a cracker / biscuit like note. The malt character definitely contributes lots of caramelized notes, a certain bread-crust like character as well as a chewy note that is not quite toffee like. As the beer warms a touch of marmalade hop character becomes noticeable as does a touch of booze in he finish. There is a definite, sweet-citrus touch of hop character here.

    From a fresh IPA perspective, this is not at its hoppy best, but this has aged pretty gracefully and is still perfectly inline with the Three Floyds interpretation of a Double IPA (big malt along with the hop focus).
