3.88/5 rDev -6.7%
Bottle poured into a FFF glass.
A - Beautiful English Bitter. It's dark, orange with light brown tint to it. Big, rocky, off-white head that left a ton of lacing on the glass.
S - Light orange peel and pine with a light bready malt to it
T- Orange peel and grapefruit on the front. There is a slight bready malt in the middle that gives it a very slight sweetness. On the back end is where the bitter comes in with a strong grapefruit and pine presence. The pine and grapefruit really linger on in the finish with a slight bigger hop presence than you'd find in your normal bitter.
MF - Light, slightly watery body with good carbonation that makes it have a slight smoothness to it when drinking. Leaves a thick hop resin that lingers on the tongue in the finish.
O - A solid bitter from FFF that is really easy to drink but brings a lot of flavor. Worth getting a bottle if you are near when they have it out, especially if you are a fan of the style.

Bottle from the brewery, 650ml into a tulip.
Copper brown, offwhite head with dense, creamy retention and webbed lace. Nose has an abundance of caramel, sweet and bready. A good dose of citrus hops, but some earthier and spicier notes too. Light on the palate, citrusy and rind-y. Still an abundace of caramel and toasty biscuit. Medium feel, quite low carb. This is very drinkable - cask treatment would be awesome.

4.45/5 rDev +7%
A: pours a deep gold to medium brown with a finger and a half of off white head
S: smelled of delicious hops when I cracked the bottle open but in the glass the nose brings caramel and toffee with some of that nice juicy hop aroma
T: slightly toasty with some caramel a little bit of pine and floral hop flavor and a back and forth battle across the palate for dominance. aftertaste is a bit of oily hop and some residual sweetness from the malt
M: medium body with slightly prickly carbonation
O: very flavorful and great balance. this is my first beer from three Floyd's and it is very good.

Poured bomber into Duvel tulip.
LAN pours a deep reddish brown, with an inch of eggshell head. The nose is rather tame for a 3F brew: subdued hops, with some bready malts coming through. The taste follows the nose here: the malts come through, with a hint of lingering bitterness.
Overall: decent, but not particularly memorable. Glad that I tried it, but not rushing out to pick itup agin. Tastes like an IPA past its prime.
