On tap at Sunswick. Pours a hazy amber with minimal off white head. Some cereal, caramel, and spicy citrus notes. Slightly malty IPA, but not full blown barleywine style. Clean overall. Fairly well balanced, which was the most notable thing about this.

yngwie (13160) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2012
On tap at Patricks. An almost clear one, dark golden to amber in color, and with a dense, beige head on top. Some lacings. The aroma has a distinct sweetness, along with alcohol, caramel, some light bready notes and piney hops. Alcohol, sweetness, some caramel and fruityness, apricot amongst others. Nice bitterness. Full body, some warmth, and a nice carbonation. Lasting finish. Sure a nice one, but it has a grainy touch I dont like too much. 120301

I drank the whole bottle! 1st time i have seen a 3 Floyds label sold in Az. Nice foamy head. Pine, citrus, & caramel malts nose. Flavors of mild caramels and dominated by the hops. I dont get the buckwheat? Creamy mouthfeel. Hides the alcohol. Dry finish. Its a good beer.

Bomber. On my own. Lifes good. :-) Pours a clear dark amber with a fairly large off white head that drops quickly. Some lacing. Aroma is citrus, dried tropical fruit, caramel. A touch of yeast. Taste starts off quite sweet and caramel malty. Turns to a very refreshing bitterness before a long and very pleasant bitter finish. Quite a rich mouthfeel, somewhat thick with a very soft and enjoyable carbonation. A very good beer, all things considered.

On tap @ Patricks. Hazy amber body with a rather small off-white head. Aroma of dry fruit, citric, caramel, yeast and alcohol. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, dry fruit, citric fruit, bitterness, yeast and warming alcohol. Fine body, long aftertaste. Very tasty, feels complex but still balanced and quite easy to drink. Still best to enjoy as a sipper. Lovely.

brigg (500) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 28, 2012
(Bottle) Cloudy reddish body with a big light beige head that leaves thick lace on glass. Aroma has some rye, moderate alcohol, earthy, lightly spicy, sweet notes of fruit and pine or vaguely citrus hops. Intersting body: Medium to full bodied but feels light and airy at the same time, soft carbonation, round feel. Great flavor starts sweet, earthy and spicy. Alcohol then comes through strong as do the strongly bitter hops. Long bitter finish and warming alcohol feel. Loved this one.

On tap at Rustico. Served in a snifter. The pour brings forward a dark reddish-amber brew with a thin white head and a bit of collar. The nose carries a touch of rye plus some earthy and citrus hops. A bit of booze. The flavor has a good dose of rye backed up by a slight amount of flavorful hops. The mouthfeel is the winner for the beer, with a nice creaminess followed by some spice from the rye. Overall, the mouthfeel is by far the best part; the rest of it is fairly uninteresting.
