Beer #2 on areich6 and my's night of the King!
A- Red? This looks like a dark IPA, a hint of amber I suppose but not much in the way or RED
S- Who sells hops to FFF? All of their beers smell pretty similar. That being said, all of their beers smell pretty great :)
T- Nice hop taste (warrior hops I'm assuming) but this has a malt backbone you won't find in other FFF beers, and I kind of like the change of pace.
M- THIS is the best part. Silky smooth, I love it!
O- Didn't know what to expect with this one but really loving it. For the price I may grab a few more bottles. Can't beat it

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
