Poured from a bomber into a MN renaissance festival goblet. Wow the aroma already is pungent with tropical hops, citrus and a rye spice, but I digress..it shows a billowing sisal colored head, creamy, over a golden hued beer. Incredibly persistent head with ropy lacing. The smell is fantastic..a dangerous rye edginess pervades an otherwise lucious grapefruit, orange, papaya and mango tropical salad. Taste. Outstanding. Mangos, pineapples, grapefruit pith, jabs of unrepentant rye spice intertwined with big hop bitterness. Did I mention I need a spoon to scrape the foam clinging to the inside of the glass? Rich, creamy, velvety mouthfeel. Malt settling in late to ease the bitterness just a shade. Finish is mildly bitter, juicy, spicy and clean. I may spread some of this creamy foam on a slice of pumpernickel for a quick snack. I don't know what sort of voodoo these folks at 3 Floyds practice, but they sure turn out amazing brews.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Hazy orange. A few bubbles well up and there are a few wisps on top, but otherwise no real head.
Smell - Big tropical fruit and grapefruit hop aroma. A touch of malt sweetness. I don't get any rye.
Taste - Strong grassy hop. Grapefruit. Not the sweet tropical and pale malt flavor I expected. Instead the rye cuts the sugars and delivers a bite with hop bitterness in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Bitter and rye finish. Medium carbonation.
Overall - The rye flavor is great. Blends with the bitterness really well.
