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.

Poured in to FFF Teku.

A - Medium yellow; cloudy. Small layer of white head.

S - Fresh grapefruit and pine. A slight malt sweetness.

T - Pungent bitterness up front with lots of pine flavour that gives way to a bouquet of fresh grapefruit and orange peel. A very slight sweetness in the background. Comes across as more like a double IPA than a barleywine.

M - Medium body. Light carbonation.

O - I haven't had too many rice beers but this is certainly the best of the bunch so far.

Thanks, bauermj! Awesome trade...

A - Served in my CBS snifter. It's cloudy apricot in color with a small white head and thin lacing. Looks like Jinxproof...

S - Smells like a FFF DIPA for sure. Huge hops upfront, loud and clear, FFF.

T - Big hops without the hop aftershock. Big grapefruit and pine, but without the stringent bitterness lasting forever. It has a great finish... This may have been a very happy accident... the addition of rice really does some wonders here.

M - Medium body, clean and crisp finish. No alcohol presence to speak of; it's very smooth.

O - I really enjoyed this one. It was very hop-forward (yet complex), but it did not burn me out. This is a stand out brew, and I am sad to only have one bottle. Excellent brew...

22 oz bomber into a FFF pint glass. This is the version bottled by FFF.

A - Dark yellow body. Very light and clear. Soapy bone-white head with sticky lacing.

S - Very FFF like. This reminds me of boogoop instantly. Incredibly sweet grapefruit and pine heavy hops. A clean malt background with a lingering honey sweetness.

T - Woah. Well this is different. I experienced a huge flavor change at least three times. Starts off with a huge hop profile of bitter grapefruit and pine. Then a soothing layer of floral spice with a certain ricey adjunct quality to it. Then its crackery with some honey. Finish is bitter for a second then vanishes. Very dry and crisp with a medium mouth feel.

O - Crazy complex. This is a very confusing beer. It looks like a lager, has the aroma of a fresh FFF DIPA, and it tastes like some odd hybrid of beers. One of the better beers I've had recently. I would not age this beer at all. It is just near perfect right now!

Ok, so I read all the reviews of this beer and you probably have too. So why repeat what they all say.
The only thing I want to add that im picking up that nobody has touched on is taste that I cant quite figure out. reminds me of a homecooked meal i think. Im sniffing the shit out of my glass and what im thinking it reminds me of fresh cooked green beans. Maybe its bitter brussel sprouts?
I dont know. maybe its just a combination of pine/spicy/citrus hops all together its odd, not bad at all, just different. I enjoy it. made me pick up a new taste receptor lol

Also I think im picking up a fresh honey taste too. I only saw one person mention that but I agree maybe clover honey?

This is a very unique beer.

Too bad this is a limited release and I probably wont be able to ask anyone else what they think of it. To see how they compare the taste to my "fresh cooked green been" taste

It's a beautiful bright orange-gold color that's a great contrast to the stark white head.

It's hoppy as hell with loads of citrus hops in the nose. It has the unmistakable 3F hop profile. Light pine and a slight grainy malt bill.

It's currently listed on BA as a barleywine, but this screams DIPA all the way. Grapefruit and orange hops with a nice bitter mouth puckering effect. It's got a slight fusel spice to the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and I'd like for the carbonation to be dialed back just a little. Still a really good mouthfeel, though.

It's a really good offering that showcases hops, hops, and more hops.

Poured hazy orange, with about a finger width head that dissipated to a light ring.

Citrus smell up front, almost matching the orang of the color, although mixed with almost a tropical fruit underneath.

Taste is hoppy but not somewhat mellowed. Not much in the way of maltiness. Fairly light and no real alcohol taste in it.

Mouthfeel is light but with a slighty stickiness to it. Smooth and easy to drink.

Overall, a very nice compilation, although it is fairly hard to pin it down in terms of style. Is it a barleywine, is it an IPA, is it rice beer. I guessI can say this: its FFF, its not normal, its good beer, enjoy it.

On tap at the pub (or crazy house as I like to call it! :) )
Brought a few bottles home like normal.

Shit is good! Damn, good.

Happy to stop in for a snack at lunch and see this Mikkeller collar on tap, well that and got the first bottle of Moloko as well!

A: looks delicious. golden clear pour with a 1/2" head to stick your nose into

S: Jumps out at you. Barleywine? No. Three Floyds Barleywine yes. I say that because I'm not a barley wine fan yet. This one is citrus, orange, grapefruit and hops. Consistent with FFF.

T: grapefruit citrus off the bat. The malty sweetness comes immediately after, then hops to finish it off. It seems to linger in your palate wanting you to take another sip. At 10.4, a sip is good at lunch time!

M: standard carbonation. Smooth and tastey. As expected

O: Wow, didn't think I'd be that head over heels for this one. BooGoop was good, but not even close to RisGoop. This is my style. Call is a Barleywine, call it a IPA, call it whatever you want. This shit is good! Didn't i already say that! :)
