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.

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!

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.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 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

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.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Nose is piney and citrusy hops and a slight metallic twinge. Taste is more focused on the citrusy hops with a hint of more English style hops. Rye isn't as prominent as I hoped but still very tasty. Palate is perfect. Soft and full. Nice beer.

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
