Bomber bottle poured into a pint glass...twice....
A: Golden orange with a good sized head.
S: Like my other 3f favorites this has a good strong citrus smell. There is a hint of sweetness in the smell - caramel, cinnamon?
T: Starts a bit sweet with caramel that is followed by citrus hops. The caramel is light and the citrus is mostly grapefruit. Maybe a hint of honey. This beer is sweet but not overpowering.
M: Despite the sweetness and complexity this is a very light and drinkable beer.
O: A very good Irish Red. Some might argue whether it should be considered as such but it always seems that 3f can take a beer style and add an interesting twist. I wish it wasn't seasonal but it does make for a good spring and summer beer.

Three Floyds Brian Boru is an Irish Red Ale with a 5.5% ABV and 40 IBU's~ Pours rich and translucent Copper red, Caramel tints when light up~ Nose is full bodied with Tobacco, Bubble Gum, Grapefruit, Pineapple, Caramel, Chocolate and Toffee~ The feel is Medium, Creamy, Rich and well balanced, delightful~ Tons of tiny Bubbles, Big white head with tons of lacing~ Taste is Strawberry, Caramel, Toffee, Bread, Cream, Toast, Citrus, Honey, Brown Sugar and some Pine and Oat~ Honestly really nothing jumps out... Expect the fact that its extremely well balanced~ I would say a nice even balance of Hops and Malt~ Really just a perfect brew for session drinking~ Such a great take on what is traditionally a rather boring and dull style~ I can't believe I'm tasting 'Strawberry' in a NON sugary processed adjunct ale, Its naturally sweet and delicious~ Overall: 92
