4.2/5 rDev +1%
Appearance - Dark amber. One finger of white, spongy head leaves thin, spotty lacing. Quite alluring.
Smell - Bready with some citrus mixed in.
Taste - A little bitter, a little hoppy, a little malty, a little toasty. Traces of citrus fruit and pine linger in the background. A very attractive blend of flavors.
Mouthfeel - Medium body, med/high carbonation, clean finish.
Overall - A nice bitter ale that goes down extremely smooth. Another winner for FFF! Looking forward to having more of this. Can't go wrong with an $8 bomber of this if you like a nice bitter ale.

3.78/5 rDev -9.1%
On tap at Three Floyds, served in a nonic pint.
Pour: Mostly clear, deep rusty orange. About a finger of rusty head forms, and recedes rather quickly. Not a lot of lace here.
Smell: Lots of grapefruit, and some other darker fruits come in. Plum? Some dark breadyness, and a touch of caramel malt step in through the end of the nose.
Taste: Follows the nose with a bitter citrus up front, and a certain chewiness. Lots of bready malt follows, and some caramel. Finishes bitter and malty.
Mouthfeel: Rather light, but at the same time not very drinkable. A bit confusing.
Overall: Solid, but I don't really think this is my style, even with a nice citrusy hop profile.
