Location: Bottle at Nerd Beer Epic Weekend, 1/25/13

Aroma: It has a sweet grapefruit nose, some peach, nice hops, some rye and spice too
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a small white head and drippy lace
Flavor: This one has a big citrus hop flavor with some nice sweetness too
Palate: This one has a nice, clean body, some average carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression:  I thought this was some really good stuff. I can’t say too much more about it beyond that. This is a great beer.

Hazy orange pour with a big frothy white head. Head faded quick but left some nice lacing. Aroma is fruity and full of pineapple. Smells like the usual 3 Floyds. Mouth is full from the rye. Taste is very hoppy. The alcohol is really well hidden. Pineapple and hints of grass. Very easy drinking.

DeliveryDriver (170) - Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a huge white head that last all the way through. I got a strong scent of citrus, but got a little bit of caramel and bread. Heavy bitterness, as expected, but there is this big sweetness on the front that came as a surprise, as I didn’t get on the nose. A full bodied beer, but smooth enough to drink at a reasonable pase. I enjoy the use of rye in an IPA, and have had many a beer with rye, and this is my favorite one of those beers.

This one is really interesting, and not at all what you’d expect if you’re looking for a "rye-PA". FIrst of all, there is this sweet, light, delicate melon taste that holds and then disappears into an increasing bitter aftertaste. Really interesting juicy, floral hop flavors that are not at all roasty or thick, as you’d expect from the rye. The first one of these I drank I decided I needed a second one till I could write about it, so now I"m saying I’ll need a third till I can write about it well. Different days I’m drinking these. Different days. . .

Delicious brew(thanks jlanning215) citrus piney all around great. Lots of lacing, pour is a gold hue with surrounding sedement. Taste was off the charts happiness. Not too much of an alcohol taste at all. Great brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Gold pour, white head, good retention/some lace. Aroma is spicy rye, floral/citrus hops, caramel. Taste is bitter, grapefruit/pine/floral hops, rye, cracker, caramel. Palate is dry, soft, bitter finish. Another outstanding 3F DIPA.

rubbishystuff (1795) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2013
This was really quite good. Big hops, piney and citrus, enough malty to back it up. Dry finish and spicy taste and finish from the rye. Serving: Bottle

Bomber from Sendiks in Brookfield. Pours an unclear orangey-copper with a bit of a foamy white head. Terrific lacing. Aroma is citrus, citrus and more citrus. Some grain and some spiciness as well. Taste is of sweet caramel, cereal, fresh sweet fruits and grapefruit. Somewhat resinous. Much more balanced than the nose. A bit rough with some alcohol presence. A definitive hop bomb and very tasty! Finishes bitter and quite dry with, what I would say is "the rye", kicking in. Three Floyds comes through again!

Bomber to snifter (thanks jmborggren). Looks good; a hazy orange with white lacing. Smells GOOD; HOPPY!!! Tastes like it smells with that nice rye tingle on the back end of the finish. A first-class DIPA!
