4.53/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bomber poured into snifter.

Appearance-light apricot, 1 finger white head, nice lacing on side of glass. 4.25

Aroma-orange, grapefruit, ground pepper, peach, cherry, grilled pineapple. 4.25

Taste-strong citrus and strong black pepper up front, orange zest, sun tea, rye bread. 4.75

Feel-medium to full bodied, lots of carbonation at first, coats palate fully, after lasts a while. 4.5

Overall-great flavor from this beer, nice combo of rye and citrus. This is my first three floyds brew and if this is any indication I will be a fan for life. I only get a chance to purchase three floyds once every month or two because that don't come to my area. I might have to make a trip to norther Indiana soon. 4.5

1752nd on Review on BA
Bottle to Bavarian Lodge Tulip
22oz

Purchased from Famous Liquors, Forest Park, IL for 10.99

App- When I poured this out, It was a bit deeper orange. Looks like a very good beer in the glass. A deep yellow color intermixed with some other colors. A nice and puffy two finger head with some very nice and deep cling.

Smell- Big floral hops on this one. Not too much citrus. A faint grapefruit/tangerine. A bit of a wheat smell in there as well.

Taste- A very good IPA. It's tasty and crisp and clean. Slightly spicy with a balanced citrus back. Not overpowering and a nice drinker. The flavors are accentuated with a bit of resin and pine. So you get the whole thing in one go. Fruit, Rye, Hops, Pine, Resin

Mouth- Medium bodied with a medium carb level. Coats the tounge well with spicy flavor. Leaves a pleasant sweet grapefruit aftertaste.

Drink- I like me some FFF. I wish I would have bought more of these. This was a damn good rye IPA.

Golden coloring and a thick creamy head, this IPA sets itself apart in looks alone. The lacing is tremendous and head is bright white and fluffy.

The nose is exquisite with soft pine notes, lemon, orange citrus and even cantaloupe.

The taste is of a quality IPA, strong piney resins, lemon, and a hint of rye. The rye is nice at the back and I found myself begging for more. The end is a bit tinny and lends to mouthfeel but the overall structure is pure quality.

Huge thanks for aasher for sending this out in a recent trade. You rock, Al!

Pours a hazed medium orange color topped by a frothy off-white foam. Great retention, lacing clinging to the glass. Big juicy citrus hops and a touch of sticky dankness greet the nose first. Some floral notes arrive later as does a subtle fruity, berry-like ester. Creeping bitterness escalates on the palate, climbing it's way through the tangerine and mango fruity hop tangle. Solid foundation of a lightly toasty, subtly peppery malt backbone. Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation.

As usual, Three Floyds delivers the goods on another devilishly hoppy big IPA. Glad I got my hands on one...thanks again, Al!

A- pours a rustic orange with an off white head forming quite nicely, wonderful beer to gaze

S- lots of the typical three floyds ipa aroma but a tad tamer than i expected; mango, papaya a touch of passionfruit with some grassiness towards the finish, with some rye spice barely showing up at the end.

T-is along the notes of the smell, but the rye does make more of an appearance...but still seems like a bit much to be calling this a rye double IPA. I've had single rye ipas that intermingle the rye flavors with the hops in a better manner

M- light carbonation, doesn't detract, keeps it dry enough to make it easy to drink despite the abv

O- Despite the lack of Rye really going on with this, its still a great must try IPA

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.
