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 don’t get the buckwheat? Creamy mouthfeel. Hides the alcohol. Dry finish. Its a good beer.

Bomber. On my own. Life’s 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 (521) - 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.

Poured into a snifter. 4.5 A: Ruddy medium amber color. Two fingers of creamy beige head. Retention is very good for the ABV and lots of lacing is left. 4.5 S: Quite a hop bomb. Citrus and floral hops dominate. Mango, papaya, pineapple, and orange are the big players. Pine and grapefruit underneath. Caramel maltiness with a strong hit of bready yeastiness. 4.0 T: Surprisingly the malt is a big part of the taste. Lots of caramel, lots of peach and candied apple fruitiness. Again, lots of tropical fruits. Mango and papaya are strongest followed by pineapple and orange followed by pine and grapefruit. Mild to moderate yeastiness. The only thing that prevents me from enjoying this more is the bitterness. Bitterness is quite aggressive and lingers well into the aftertaste. The supposed 80 IBUs tastes more like double that. On a lighter note, the alcohol is well hidden. 3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. There’s a bit too much chewiness from the yeast for me. It reduces the creaminess. 3.5 D: I’m going to have a hell of a time finishing this bottle with all this bitterness. Still, it’s a tasty beer and I wish I stumbled upon more than one bottle. Great nose and a solid taste. There’s not a whole lot of wheat flavor in this, but that’s to be expected considering the massive hoppiness. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-19-2012 04:51:04

Tap at Schouskjelleren [FEB 22, 2012] (with Cunningham). Copper colour with an off-white head. Aroma of fruits, caramel, malt, hops and alcohol. Sweet and fruity with a hint of bitterness in the end. Noticeable alcohol, but well integrated. Very pleasant and easy to drink. Great BW!

KyotoLefty (6704) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 25, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pretty amber with a tall bubbly head. Huge hop nose: citrus mostly. Very grainy flavor with the buckwheat really coming through, lovely malt, but bitterness. Sweet buckwheat honey, plums. Sweet but also very bitter. Smooth and oily. Nose is nice but the flavor is bigger on this one.

I’ve had a few of Mikkeller beers but this is my first Three Floyds. Not at all disappointed. The aroma has a lot of pine and floral notes with an earthy background. It’s an nice amber with a big foamy head that laces the glass and caps the beer throughout. The flavor has a very nice malty sweetness to it that gives way to the hops. The finish is quite dry and refreshing for such a big beer. No trace of the booze until you try to stand up.
