5/5 rDev +17.1%
From a bomber poured into a duvel tulip. Pours a clear orange copper with an inch of off white head that shrinks with nice lacing. Aroma is tangerine, pine resin, grapefruit, apricot, and rye. Flavor follows aroma. Blood fruit, tangerine, grapefruit, some tropical fruit, and a rye based malty backbone. Thin to medium mouthfeel. Very good.

Amazing. Rich, citrus, perfect. I don't have much to say other then perfection. This is another one I had fresh and then 6 months after the fresher the better. This is another one I wouldn't sit on which I am sure that is not an option as they only made it once. So I don't even know if there is any out there. I know this has nothing to do with the beer but a great label as well. Floyd's just keeps killing it.

a nice clean orangey/amber pour with a finger of white head, nice lacing!
smells of piney hops, caramel, grapefruit, subtle hints of toasted grains (rye).
very hoppy up front, floral, citrusy, very sweet/tart on the cheeks initially. a delicious rye ale, leaning towards an ipa. subtle hints of rye pop up behind all the hops.
medium body, nice carbonation, creamy feel on lips..
overall another phenomenal beer by 3F! awesome metallica reference, awesome artwork, great fuckin' beer.

Bomber from the brewery, review based on notes
A - Light orange with one finger white head recedes quickly, colour is beautiful.
S - In your face fruitiness, smells up the room upon cracking the bottle. Peach, apricot tangerines and citrus.
T -Perfect balance of fruity juicy hops and biscuity malt really well balanced.
M - really light, easy drinking slightly heavy on the carbonation.
O - One of my favourite beers from 3 Floyds, easily drank a bomber and was wanting more! Really great and highly recommended.

big thanks to stxSS07 for sending this my way along with some of the teku glasses.
a - brew poured a fairly opaque almost pewter orange. when held to the light i could see some shadows and outlines of the objects on the other side. a thin finger of bubbles served as the head which left relatively quick leaving nothing more than just a skin of bubbles. lacing was spotty, but present.
s - HOLY MOLY! smells like a world class IPA. wonderful citric and grapefruit blast. some rye is present, but this is a hop bonanza!!! smells insanely good.
t - the taste does not disappoint. the hops in the nose are perfectly married with a wonderful rye grain presence. very earthy without being gross. just a masterpiece.
m - medium bodied. solid. even carbonation. light and easy to drink. really well balanced.
o - overall, rye beers are one of my favorites and i think i may have found the best rye beer i've ever tried. the hops are perfect right now. why, oh why can't i live walking distance to three floyds...heck, i'll take the regular offerings on the shelf. PLEASE EXPAND distro!!!
