Notes/Commercial Description:
Behold! The fifth collaborative effort of Three Floyds and Mikkeller. This complex ale is just the beverage for canal boat trips in Copenhagen or the brutal Chicago winter. This year’s offering will be brewed in both Europe and in Chicago. Look for both editions and the subtle differences in each. Cheers and thanks for supporting craft beer.

22oz bottles and draft only.

4.13/5  rDev -0.2%

22 oz bottle, poured into a snifter.

A - Orange/amber color, about an inch of head, settles quickly.

S - Citrusy hop smell, reminiscent of FFF's IPAS/IIPAS.

T - Taste is also citrusy, with slight maltiness. I can't taste the rice at all.

M - Sticky, hop flavor coats the tongue.

O - Not what I was expecting, much more of a Double IPA than a Barleywine, a solid beer, but not too different from FFF's other hop bombs.

Honey-amber pour, slightly hazy, a small off-white head settled to a thick collar, leaving splotchy lacing on the glass. Fruity esters on the nose, caramel candy, slight earthy hop notes. More caramel candy in the taste, sweet overripe fruits, citrus zest, earthy hops, somewhat of a caramelized rice cake or caramel corn sensation, but that could just have been my brain processing the fact that this is a ricewine...or it could've been authentic. Medium body, medium carbonation, slightly oily, with a slightly drying finish thanks to the mild yet lingering hop presence. Alcohol was pretty well hidden, making this a pretty drinkable brew overall.

(Served in a teku)

A- This beer pours a slightly hazy bright orange body with a gentle carbonation of tiny bubbles. There is a sticky antique white head that last and last

S- The blast of beautiful hops almost sting the nose with aromas of pineapple weed and pale green hop flowers that smell just pick of the bine.

T- The mellow creamy note blends to fresh pineapple weed and dandelion flower hop flavors finish to a dry mellow but full pungency that has some nice bitterness as it opens up.

M- This beer has a medium-light crisp texture with all the alcohol hidden somewhere.

O- This beer is lovely with lots of exploding hop aroma/flavor and a good depth to it aswell. There is no real bitterness and alcohol but just enough pungency to offset the floral character of the hops. I don't know where those 22 oz. went.

Aroma of sweat yet a wine taste. A big bubbly head and lots of lace. Gino’s bottle from 3 Floyds visit. A wild yeast strain, with bravo hops I think. Sweet and hoppy. A big mouthfeel, tangerine and grapefruit flavours. Not super drinkable.bee-aye 6600.

4.5/5  rDev +8.7%

A - bright orange with a huge, white, frothy head that has good retention

S - citrusy, grapefruit, faintly spicy

T - bread, orange, grapefruit, spicy, earthy, faint sweetness

M - medium bodied, warm, smooth

This is intensely hopped Barleywine. This could fit in with almost any of the DIPAs I've had from FFF so far. I really enjoyed the intense hop character and the subtle malt sweetness. If getting FFF around here wasn't hard, I would definitely have this again.

4.08/5  rDev -1.4%

Pred from a bomber int o room temp pint glass.

A- Cloudy, hazy, light golden-orange color that pours to a 1-inch head that hangs in there, fading quite slowly and leaving behind some wide, sticky mega-rings of lace.

S- Orange and lemon citrus hop aromas dominate, a touch of alcohol comes through. A bit of dry malt backround.

T-Hopped up flavor of orange, lemon, with a touch of dry bready malt, keeping it in balance.

M- Tangy and sharp with a smooth finish, very smooth. Very nice body, feel, and balance; with a 10% abv, well done.

O- I like this hopped up version of American Barleywine, and at 10% abv without being 'boozey' is a big plus.
