Beer added by: MasterSki on 08-06-2012

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

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.

A: Murky and hazy!!! Yellowish with a slight golden tinge. No head, no lace. No bubbles. Looks very much like a wild ale.

S: If there was a score over a 5, I wouold do it! Simco hops? Crazy crazy hops. And hops. Hemp; if you know what I'm sayin.

T: WOW!!! Really tasty!!! Super ctazy hop, with no bitterness at all!!!!

M: Super super balanced. Nice and chewy. Nice coat on the tongue.

O: I wish FFF was distributed in Philly/PA!!!

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.

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.
