Foamy white head that disappears into a thin white ring. Dark orange in color. Clings to glass after every sip. Sweet nose of hops, citrus, apricot, and a little spice. Sweet, hoppy, and fruity flavors with a nice texture from the rye give this one a nice body.

Great coppery red pour with substantial head. The aroma is slightly alcohol laden, spicy, and suggestive of sweet roasted malt. The flavor is likewise spicy and intense. Rye, roasted malt, dark fruit, raisins, with a pretty dry and spicy finish...hinting at the high alcohol content and substantial earthy hopping. Very well made. Thanks to FS Mugclubber Phil!

Bottle thanks to Kan.Very cool dark gold copper color with a thin white head. Aroma is excellent with serious tropical fruit of pineapple, and orange /tangerine. Medium bodied. Flavors of sweet caramel, toffee maltiness. Spice like rye and solid bitter hops. Finish is long and fairly dry. Tasty beer for sure.

nickd717 (3560) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Bomber thanks to pantanap. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber color with a nice lasting off-white head and some good lacing. Spicy aroma of rye, sweet caramel, grapefruit, and pine. Rather enticing. The flavor has rye, caramel, toffee, and the same citrusy, piney, and herbal hop profile that I get in a lot of FFF’s hoppy beers. Lots of "rug" in there - rye for the uninformed. Medium-full body with a slight syrupiness and average carbonation level for the style. Overall, another solid beer in the "goop" series. Does "goop" mean wine?

On tap at the brewery. Hazed orange pour with a creamy head. Tons of fresh hops rising from the glass. Pine grapefruit with rich caramel malts. So fresh and delicious. Pine and grapefruit hop flavors pouncing on my tongue. The sweetness is balanced so well with that combination of hops. The fresh hoppyness with grapefruit and pine really reminds me of old fresh dreadnaught. There is a certain maltiness but I don’t notice the rye. Its basically a super fresh and tasty IIPA. Really good. 9/4/9/4/17

Dog Days of Summer Gathering, thanks Juiceisloose. copper, tan head. Good rye presence with plenty of piney hops adding some grapefruit and spices, quite different for the style. For a barley wine, the overall profile keeps a nice bitter hop approach along with the more thick rye finish mixed in with some intense caramel malts.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Fresh bomber. The pour yields a clear, reddish-orange amber colored body with a small, foamy, off-white head. A thick wash follows each tilt of the glass, leaving fat, spotted lacing behind. In true Three Floyds fashion, the nose booms with huge citrus and pine resin hops, coming across with floral, aromatic bitterness and an unfortunate bit of soapiness. Underneath, caramel malt lends ample sweetness, while rye and caraway seed offer their signature, clean graininess. Flavors are strikingly bitter, loaded with pine resins and grapefruit at IIPA levels. Toasted bread and caramel show in the malt base, as clean rye once again proves to be an integral component. Big bodied, the palate is semi-dry, which is a surprise for a monster 10% beer. Carbonation is highly active, intensifying the bitterness of the hops and the boozy alcohol notes. Eh, it’s decent as hop-bomb booze monsters go, but it’s not something I would want a full pint of, by any means. Probably my least favorite of the "Goop" collaboration series to date.

egajdzis (5365) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Red amber with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, grass, dark fruits, rye, caramel, nuts, and alcohol. Taste of raisins, pine, grapefruit, orange, citrus fruits, dried fruits, rye malts, caramel, and light alcohol.

jtclockwork (8593) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Bottle at Jimmack’s invitational. Pours clear amber. Nose and taste of hops, caramel malts, brown sugar, rye and cane sugar. A bit hoppy for a barleywine, but tasty.

I am sitting at the bar of the actual brew pub As I type this..pause, sip. This stuff blows the senses off kilter, into the bland scenery that surrounds this wonderful bar. I’ve never had three floyds beer before today, but making it apart of my daily routine, despite the daunting task, would greatly improve the quality of my life. The beer! The man said it was a barleywine. Well if that’s the case, than this is the hoppiest barley wine I’ve had in my life. Well done, three floyds!
