Poured a light golden amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, floral hops, toffee malts, grass, and caramel. Taste of sweeter caramel malts, vanilla, toffee, citrus fruits, light pine, lemongrass, and toasted malts, with mild bitterness in the finish. Nice change of pace for Three Floyds, and even better than this year’s anniversary beer.

valpoaj (661) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - AUG 12, 2008
Poured from bomber...medium yellow-amber color with very little head. Aroma is very nice...somewhat light, but still good levels of floral hops, some mild spice/perfume, and some light roasted malts...very subdued for FFF. Flavor is very nice for someone like myself who does not love the hop bomb as much as the average RBian. Good floral and piney hop flavors are well balanced by toasty and sweet malt flavors. This beer exceeded my expectations, though again, the price will likely preclude a repeat purchase.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Thanks to Ken for this one. Dark caramel color to go along with the caramel nose featuring some bitter hoppiniess. The flavor has plenty of caramel as well, brown sugar, and bitter middle to end.

Bomber graciously shared by GMCC2181 @statelineliquors friday afternoon tasting. Small tan head, fair retention with a stringy lace. Lightly hazy, copper gold hued ale. Soft nose, lightly fruity, lightly floral and perfumey with some bubble gum notes. Body is med/light, lightly oily with a soft carbonation. Stoney fruitiness, sorta tropical at times with lightly sweet caramel malts, somewhat earthy. well balanced and drinkable. Juicey, fruity finish. Thanks Gabe!

illkarate (115) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - AUG 3, 2008
22 oz - pours golden with hints of red and copper. Very nice off-white head. Tremendous lacing. The hops are there - pine, citrus, much of the alcohol is up-front in this brew. Finishes with malt, butterscotch and hints of fig. This is a really nice offering from 3F. Might...*might* cellar for 1/2 year or so.

22oz bottle via trade with Mattf311. First brew from FFF I’ve had in quite some time, it did not disappoint! Pours a burnt orange amber with a 2 finger white head, great lacing. Nose of pine, herbs and spices and a Barley Wine - esk malty backbone. Flavor, had again remnants of a Barley Wine, with citrus, spice and some alcohol. A very unique, and spectacular brew! Thanks Matt!

On tap at FFF. Lovely gold with a creamy, but short-lasting cream head. The aroma was from some sort of crazy parallel IPA universe. Instead of the expected blasts of grapefruit and pine, its full of grassy/herbal notes, spiciness, sweet citrus, and biscuits. The flavor similarly has a lot going on, with the toasty caramel malt is a sturdy foundation for the spicy hops. Finish is bitter and long-lasting with very little alcohol, even as it warms up. Creamy mouthfeel. Excellent beer, and a great change of pace.
