4.24/5  rDev -1.2%

bottle picked up not hat long ago when i was visiting the FFF area. had a pint of this on tap at the brewpub, but this review is for the bottle i picked up in town. enjoyed from a FFF teku.

a - brew poured a deep murky orange with a thin off white head of tiny bubbles. visible carbonation could be seen rising to the surface of the glass from the bottom. when held to the light, the brew was semi transparent.

s - much more hoppy and tropical citrus than i remembered when i had it on tap at the brew pub. has a nice glazing of rye coming in strong on the nose as well. i remember thinking that this one didn't hold a candle to rye'da lightning when i had it on tap, but this bottle seems to have a really fresh tropical vibe going on.

t - the flavor comes in big with rye leading the way trailed by a really nice citric hop and subtle bittering on the finish.

m - soft and a bit light bodied. doesn't pack much of a punch. a bit watery even.

o - overall, not as wonderful as rye'da lightning, but still worth seeking out. FFF does a really great job with a rye beer.

This was my favorite new beer of the Super Bowl Party this year. Drank after a Zombie Dust. Remarkably similar beer, just of greater degrees of ingredients (more, rye). But anyways, this is supposed to be about the appearance first, so without further ado:

Poured out a hearty orange liquid, 1" off white head, looks professional quality. Aroma, big time amarillo, citra and simcoe I would guess, its delicious for sure.

Taste, damn, three floyds can make some damn good hoppy beers. Alcohol warming, but not providing a negative flavor component. Hops are bright and shiny. Plenty of citrusness to it, tangerine I think is the biggest one, it isn't big and tropical fruit, this is sweet orange and tangerine. Rye is barely perceptible, which is fine by me. Pretty dry mouthfeel. What FFF does so well is make their beer hoppy, but you never get the bitterness unaccompanied by other flavors. This is hop flavor all the way with little in terms of that copper penny bitterness and nothing else that so many shortcutting brewers seem to be all about (high alpha acid, thin crystal malt = ugh more often than not).

4.13/5  rDev -3.7%

Bomber poured into a FFF tulip

A - Bright, hazy orange with brown undertones. Poured with a big head comprised of many small carbonation bubbles. Leaves nice lacing down the sides. There are also a small amount of floaters as well

S - Citurs mixed with rye and pepper come up in the nose. I pick up orange, grapefruit, rye bready, and a slight hint of pepper.

T - Sweet orange comes first. As the beer progresses, there is a rye, bready malt that comes through along with a slight pepper spice and a hint of caraway seeds. The hops comes through on the end with a slight bitter grapefruit that lingers in the finish along with the rye.

MF - Thick and sticky sweet beer that has light carbonation. Leaves a slight hoppy residue that lingers on the tongue in the finish.

O - This is essentially a Rye version of Dreadnaught. It's a sweet and malty beer that has a nice hop presence on the back end. The rye adds a nice dimension to give it a nice bready malt and a slight pepper presence.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a touch of hazy candy orange body with a light beige thick head of cream and the body is a snow globe of jetsam. There is a gentle microcarbonation pushing to the surface.

S- The green floral hops is big and bright.

T- The full flavor of unripe fruit hops has some bright green hops in the finish with an alcohol spice in the finish. Three is a woody green hop and rye flavor that lingers and grows in the finish as the beer opens.

M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a gentle fizz and an alcohol warmth on the exhale.

O- This is a nice full hop beer that brings rye and alcohol heat up to the hop level.

Aroma pretty straight forward for me-hop flower, pink grapefruit and papaya.

This turns into a hop bomb! Big and bold! Definite caraway, white pepper, burnt caramel, honeyed biscuit and grapefruit pith. Like chewing on a hop head. Beautiful lacing.

Mouthfeel is semi sticky and pleasant hop aftermath.

Another FFF masterpiece. Nothing to prove, but again showing what an exceptional brewery they are.

Had on tap at FFF. Review from notes.

A: Pours a hazy orange color with a large white head made up of fine bubbles. Decent head retention and lacing.

S: Big citrus aroma, lots of grapefruit and orange zest mixed with some spicy rye and pepper.

T: More big citrus fruits up front, orange, grapefruit, and a bit of pineapple. Some bready and caramel malt with a kick of spice near the finish.

M: A big medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Slightly bitter finish.

O: A very solid beer, a spicy Dreadnaught. Should have had more of it.
