Enjoyed from the tap at the Three Floyds Brewpub and served in a snifter.
The brew is a clear, deep golden with a touch of amber adorned with a one finger bright white head. The head is present as long as some brew remains as well as abundant web-like lacing. The nose is filled with citrus and flora and certainly is reminiscent of other FFF brews. Orange blossoms, juicy grapefruit, and bitter citrus rind are dominant. Milder notes of fresh cut grass and a touch of pine fill out the aroma. Opens with grapefruit rind and a blast of juicy citrus hops however the bitterness is immediately met by a light sweetness and velvetly malt which heads off the bitter bite. Instead of overt bitterness the tastebuds are treated to a long lasting juicy tangyness that slowly relents in the finish which is silky smooth and ends fairly dry. The mouthfeel is very unique as a heavy malt backbone is present, yet the density seems lighter than it should be. Extremely creamy and absolutely no hint of the high 10.4% abv. Enjoyable, a very unique brew.
Note: Having had the bottled version as well, I would suggest trying both versions as there are some distinct differences which led to slightly different experiences.

1800th review! 22 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled in 8/2012. Pours moderately hazy bright orange amber color with a 2 finger dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange zest, orange rind, floral, grass, pine, honey, bread, candy sugar, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity of hop notes with moderate pale malt balance; and good strength. Taste of pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, pine, lemon/orange zest, orange rind, floral, grass, honey, candy sugar, bread, and floral earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, orange/lemon zest, orange rind, pine, floral, grass, honey, candy sugar, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity of hop flavors with moderate pale malt balance; with great crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a lightly slick, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic blonde barelywine! All around awesome complexity and balance of hop and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
