4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours cloudy orange amber with a 3 finger, chunky off white head and high effervescence. Aroma is huge on citrus, tropical fruit and floral hops, some pine, biscuit, a little caramel and spiciness that could be hops, rye, or a combination of the two. Big tropical fruit, citrus, pine and spicy hops, biscuit, toast, cereal and twiggy pine. medium to heavy body, light carbonation, and a creamy to chewy feel. Fantastic stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy orange pour, HUGE frothy head, and bitter oranges, rye, & herbal hop aroma. Flavor is also a nice meld of herbs, hops and hints of rye throughout and finished a little sweet/orangey. Decent beer, but too pricey to buy more than once.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle from arkurzynski. Pours unclear orange with a frothy white head that dissipates to a soapy film and collar. Aroma is bright grapefruit pine and subtle melon and bread/malt. Taste bitter rye bread resinous pine grapefruit some spruce and rind. Palate is medium and finishes chalky dry. This is what I was in the mood for a good bitter IIPA. Thanks Adam!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy orange with good, foamy off-white head, some legs / Bright nose of weed, cut pine, orange, grapefruit, candied sugar, and rye spice / Medium body, just a hint watery, creamy and chewy, sweet with good hop bite, and solid bitter finish / Flavors a little earthier than the nose, but otherwise a match, although not picking up a lot of rye character / Despite the nit-picking, another stellar brew by 3F.

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

New bomber from three floyds picked up at westlakeview liquors. Tastes like a IPA with rye added. Bright citrus notes again mostly featuring grapefruit. Just a touch of malt sweetness before finishing with a good spicy kick from the rye

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Pours a clear amber gold with a beige ring and micro film.
Aroma: Grapefruit, dank tangerine. Brown sugar.
Taste: Grapefruit citrus like hop. Dry spicy malt. Hop biterness that lingers.
Mouthfeel: Juicy medium bodied modest carbonation.
Overall: Tasty, hoppy, super drinkable, especially for something nearing 9%. My evolving palate likes this way better than Dreadnaught.
