JaBier (4532) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle sample at the beer vs. wine tasting at Aficionado’s on 2/23/13. Pours a clear, yet chunky gold to amber color with a thin off-white head. Malty sweet nose with notes of spicy rye and hop. Malty flavor with spicy rye character and oniony hops in the finish.

NachlamSie (2646) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Bomber at Sergio’s World beers. This is not as hoppy as I would expect from FFF, but not to say it’s not hoppy. There is hugely assertive rye in the aroma with accents of citrusy hops. Palate is fairly sticky with spicy rye and an even wash of hops. I can’t believe the restraint of bitterness, relatively speaking.

Mittenator (1092) - Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bomber. Golden orange with sediment throughout. Citrus and slight hops. Big rye, citrus and pith. Yum.

adrian910ss (2277) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2013
22 oz bomber courtesy of Todd. Pours a cloudy orange vistilite with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of fresh orange citrus, rye, bitter hops and bread malts. Taste of fresh orange citrus, grapefruit, bitter hops and rye bread. Another gem from 3 FFFs.

3/1/2013. Honored to have had this. Pours orange-green with a fluffy white head. Aroma is citrus, lemon peel, resin, spicy. Taste is spicy, bread, rye (yes!), earth, wood, pineapple. Finish is long and bitter. Great lacing. Chewy mouth feel, This was excellent. Another great ale from one of the greatest breweries there is.

Solid dark amber. Frothy, lasting white head. Big aroma, very hoppy, citrus, sweet, and rye. Flavor to match. Medium to full body, sticky, balanced hop bitter. Balanced overall. Great beer - everything in it come together really well, Too bad I had this after Hopslam.
