22 oz. bottle poured into a Founders snifter.

Appearance: Pours a slightly cloudy pale amber with a huge fluffy white head. Good head retention. Leaves a nice lacing down the glass.

Smell: Citrus and floral hops with a big dose of rye spiciness up front. Some biscuit and caramel malts peek through. Same great in-your-face hop profile that Three Floyd's seems to always bring.

Taste: Sweeter than expected. A good balance between caramel malt and floral/grapefruit hops infused with rye spiciness. Finish is a bit floral with more caramel and rye balanced by bittering hops. The rye works brilliantly with the hop profile. Excellent.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy body for the style. Rye makes it a bit chewy. Carbonation level keeps at least somewhat crisp despite the thickness.

Overall: One of the best rye beers I've had, and I love my rye beers. Strong rye presence, great hop profile (no surprise coming from Three Floyd's).

Bomber poured into a Duvel tulip.

If you are a 3 Floyds fan, you will like this beer. I am a fan, so I do enjoy it.
It has all the earmarks of their offerings: Great head retention, citrus-like aroma,
and lingering bitterness. Yes: rye spice to boot. It's rusty orange, with plenty of sediment.

Many of the 3F hop-forward offerings taste similar to me, and I like most of them.
Solid offering: hoppy, balanced, and offers a twist with the rye. Not quite as complex as D'naught, but worth a try. I like it more than the "Lightning" version. Looking forward to Boru in a month or so!

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.

A - Clear amber, orange with a fluffy white head and patchy lace.

S - Grapefruit, orange zest, spicy rye and tropical fruit.

T - Grapefruit, spicy rye, lingering pine, tropical fruits. Some bitterness but a lot of hop flavor. Some candied citrus sweetness.

M - Medium body with good carbonation.

D - I saw a review call this man candy and I can't argue with that statement. Hoppy but with enough sweetness. I don't think 3F can do a bad hoppy beer.
