Bomber shared. Pours an orange color with off soft white head with nice lacing. The aroma is like sticking your face in a pine tree and inhaling very slowly. But that’s not the only aroma. You get some grapefruit mix with other tropical fruits. The first taste was a subtle ness of bold hops and rye. Funny the aroma and flavor come across in two different ways. Both very good. The rye comes across the middle of the tongue. ThEn i spilled my glass. DAMN.

Deep golden color. Great hop presence in the nose with light tropical fruit, pungent grapefruit, and soft pine. Malt not to be outdone with a pronounced rye spice, caramel malt, and sweet honey biscuits. Flavor is solid grapefruit, citrus, mango with matching rye malt spice and caramel malt. Great palate that is sticky and thick, but yet, easy to drink. I like that the rye characteristics are fairly pronounced and not just an afterthought. A very solid brew.

Nomber. Poured medium golden with a creamy, well-retained eggshell head.. nice lacing. The aroma picked up a whole helluva lot of mango, with pineapple and peppery rye also showing.. loved it! The flavor found sweet tropical fruit and biscuity malts at the core.. juicy mango, pineapple, black pepper, and rye around.. lots of tropical fruit bitterness and rye on the long, belly-warming finish. Medium-bodied, juicy, and engaging on the palate.. great stuff!

THE Fruit Sour tasting. Thanks to Paul for sharing this treat. Hazy amber beer, good cream coloured head. Palate is light and dry. Semi soft with fine carbonation. Creamy malt and a touch of seltzer minerals. Lovely tropical fruits and a little orange marmalade. Finishes soft. Very nice indeed. A fine beer from the ever great Three Floyds and a fine tribute to one of the creme de la creme of rocks singers. Cheers Ronnie!

On tap at FFF: pour is murky light.golden with a modest fine bubbled.white head in this glass. Sticky lacing, and average retention is present here. The nose is biscuit, pine, grapefruit, and there are elements of the rye here. It seems like an off shoot of dreadnaught to me, with less of the florals and.more.of the rye. The flavor profile is more grapefruit, pine, caramel, juicy fruit, sticky mouthfeel, caramel, and the rye provides a certain spiciness. Anyway, this is another nice one obviously. It’s no Nelson but its damn tasty

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated hazy orange colored body. The strong aroma was rye and malty. The mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of rye. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Advocate_Ames (390) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2012
A nice foam head followed by a nice scent. I smell citrus, pine, grapefruit, slight rye, and malts. I taste barley, caramelized malts, oranges, hops, and rye. Overall it has a medium level of bitterness. This is a good brew and won’t corrupt or put stress on the palate. I would enjoy to have this again.

Bomber. Boiled over a bit when opened. Looks like a science experiment, in that sediment is constantly floating around. Delicious. The rye compliments the hops quite well. I could drink these all day.

Orangish pour, fluffy head. Aroma is heavy on the rye and citrus. Flavor is bitter, loads of rye, orange peel, resiny finish. Big beer.
