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.

Bomber poured into a Duvel tuilp.

Risgoop pours a hazy yellow/orange color with an inch of off-white head. The color reminds me a bit of orange Tang. Come to think of it, smells a bit like orange Tang, too! Aroma is of sweeter citrus fruits: orange/tangerine. Tastes a bit like orange chewable baby aspirin. While that might not sound flattering, I do enjoy this. Mouthfeel is not as thick as anticipated. it's definitely on the thin side for a bw. The rice does offer a twist on the style, both in smell & taste. For 10%, the alcohol is well hidden.

Overall, tastes more like a DIPA. I guess that is to be expected from a FFF product.

3.65/5  rDev -11.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours orange with a 2 finger white head. Good lacing and retention.

Smells like a typical FFF offerings. Citrusy hops with a little bit of pine. Cereal malt aroma, but mostly hop forward.

Hops are still present, but not nearly as strong as the nose. A little citrus up front before the cereal grain flavor takes over. Tastes a bit like those sugar biscuits you get at a Chinese buffet. Not bad, but not a ton of discernable flavor either.

Medium bodied. Candied pine sits on the tongue in the aftertaste. Alcohol is fairly well hidden, but a bit of it gets through which I don't like in my IPA's.

Perfectly acceptable beer, but nothing really stands out about it except the price which is much too high. Many equal or better options for a lower price. Even APW and DN are cheaper than this and better.

A-Cloudy orange, nice carbonation, one finger head that doesn't last long.

S-Lots of citrus notes, some lemon, orange and grass. Hops are present but so is some alcohol heat.

T-Starts with a lot of citrus, like the nose lemons and orange. Mild bitterness in the finish.

M-Medium bodied, nice carbonation with a velvety feel.

O-Was expecting a little beer but still a solid beer. It does pack a punch though.

Poured from 22oz bomber into Globe glass.

A. Pours 2 finger head. Smells hoppy pouring out of the bottle. Color is golden orange. Thick lacing. Good retention. Looks like a IPA.

S. Citrus hps are the predominant smell. Some piney hop aroma also comes out. Malt aroma is bready and biscuity. This really smells like an IPA in almost all aspects. Smells like a lot of 3F's other IPAs.

T. Really doesnt taste like anything. There is some faint hop traces lingering around, but not much. Really the only taste is a mouth coating sweetness. Really interesting in the fact that it might be the first 10% beer that has had the least amount of taste I have ever had. No alcohol trace. Very little bitterness.

M. Medium bodied. Lingering sweetness.

O. Not too impressed at this point. Bought 2 bottles, and really hoping something happens over time to turn the second one in to some sort of barleywine. Label says Rice Beer, which makes a little more sense why this is fairly tasteless. Will review 2nd bottle later.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The beer is bright golden with a small head of broken bubbles. The aroma offers fresh hops and citrus atop a malt base with subtle notes of alcohol. The flavor brings oranges with a mellow candy sweetness. Nice. Medium bodied, this beer coats the palate with resiny, sticky, hops. Resemblance to a DIPA. Overall, another very tasty offering from FFF.
