Three Floyds Brewing Company Arctic Panzer Wolf Imperial IPA

The Three Floyds Brewing Company is in Munster, Indiana and makes several very sought after brews. This animal is 9.5% ABV and 100 IBU's.

The beer pours lightly hazy, dark honey golden and orange-apricot in color.  There is a tall thickly foamy head, off-white in color.  The aroma is hop forward, orange marmalade, apricot, melon, overripe tropical fruit, with the alcohol discernible, but not obtrusive.  There is a malty sweetness, aromatic.  The taste is big and chewy, a dense and slightly sweet scone with gobs of fruit jams and marmalade on top, ending in a grassy, intense bitterness.  The finish is massively bitter, but held back by the sweetness that smooths out the edges of the bitterness, throwing in grapefruit rind and apricot jam.  This beer is big in every way.
