Three Floyds War Mullet Review

Obscure name? Check.
Artwork that may invoke nightmares in your children? Check. 
Reference to D&D or a metal band? Ummm maybe not? 
Aggressively hopped double IPA? Check. Yep it's Three Floyd's beer time!!!

This edition features War Mullet, one of FFF newer and perhaps semi-regular bomber offerings (like Permanant Funeral). It's been available at the brewpub a handful of times, but has not made it to Indianapolis yet. 

From the bomber into a Teku glass the beer pours a vivid orange color, with copper highlights and a two finger off-white head. Laces well. Aromas of pine, resin, citrus, and tropical fruit. Very similar in taste: spicy hop resins, orange, mango, citrus rind bitterness. Medium to heavy body, but strong carbonation keeps it from being syrupy. Mouthfeel is oily with a very dry finish. 

Another must try DIPA from FFF. Big citrusy and resinous beer, but shows some restraint while being a solidly bitter beer. Great balance all around. Worth a trip to the brewpub just for this? Probably not, but worth getting if you happen to cross paths with it. 4/5
