look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Pours a hazy orange with a solid two-finger lingering head
S: Pine and citrus hops up front backed by a solid spicy rye-malt. Not subtle tropical fruit round it out; complex & enjoyable to sit & sniff
T: Mango, grapefruit, spice, rye, a bit of pine all come through in great balance
M: Medium-bodied, crisp, light carbonation; quite pleasant
O: Complex, balanced and tasty - not that I'd expect anything less from 3 Floyds; this is yet another great beer in their portfolio

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A - Pours a nice light orange.

S - Very nice tropical nose. I get a lot of tropical fruits from the hops with a nice amount of orange. There is some bread-y rye, pine and grapefruit notes as well.

T - Follows the nose. First wave is tons of tropical hops and orange. This turns to resinous pine and grapefruit. It finishes with a light touch or rye and sweet malts. Amazing. I just wish it had a little more rye to it.

M - Just right for the style. Medium body with that oily/sticky characteristic. Very sessionable.

O - I absolutely love rye beers. This tastes exactly like what I think a cross between Zombie Dust and Nelson from Alpine would taste like. The only thing I would change is adding a little more rye. Its there, but a little too subtle. 3 Floyd's continues to "wow" me. This is another world-class offering from them.

Poured from a 22oz bottle int a pint glass.

A: Pours a cloudy orange with a nice rocky 2finger head. Lacing and retention are out of this world. The beer clings to the the glass and after a good minuets the head settled to a nice film.

S: Smells like a fairly standard ipa. Huge tropical citrus (mango, papaya, etc) with a underlying hint of Rye and resin.

T: Close to the nose. Huge tropical citrus some malt in the middle and finish's with a nice rye punch.

M: Medium body and carbonation.

O: Outstanding beer. Just enough rye to give it a bit of a kick in a different direction. Try it if you can find it!
