4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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
I thought this was some really good stuff. I can’t say too much more about it beyond that. This is a great beer.

Bottle from St Fun.
Pours a decent yellow si, oh yes, with a nose of banana-thin body odor hops. Flavor is a full-on assault of grapefruit rind, orange rind, and grapefruit pulp. Nice but light mouthfeel. I see his stripes andI know he’s clean; oh, can’t you see what I mean?

Draft at FFF. Pours a glowing gold, hazed with a sticky whitish head. Nose is big hops. Fresh and floral with big citrus. Juicy and fresh. Minimal grain in the nose. On tasting, big bitterness that is balanced with more of the juicy hop character. Big enough malt backbone to support it. Super fresh and hop dominant. Fantastic stuff.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy white head. Aroma of a lot of citrus and floral hops, some rye spiciness, a lot of caramel malts, and some dough and bubble gum typical of 3 Floyds. Flavor the same with a lot of hops and sweetness with a nice amount of rye. Smooth texture. A good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle although had previous times before at the brewpub from prior visits... Pour from the bottle yields a mostly solid non-transparent orangey brown consistency and topped with a fluffy lingering barely off-white head... Aroma of juicy semi-bitter tropical fruit and pithy citrus components. A hint of metallic surfaces before fading out completely which was reassuring - that an an intermixing of fruit cocktail comes to mind. A blast of pine and general dank undertones evolve late and lingers on for a bit. That note of metallic eventually comes back into the equation which was for the most part a letdown... Flavors follow suit mostly with semi-sweet juicy tropical fruit hops front and center quickly turning assertively bitter mid-palate and extending on through the finish. Just above medium bodied, somewhat full, with the right dash of carbonation. Some hints of aspirin through the middle. Malt seem to fall to the wayside but there is a spicy quality to it from the rye persuasion most likely...all in all, prob prefer the lightning more so than the tiger. A little too much firepower for me while the lightning had more of a drinkability aspect to it with a the hop assertiveness that I really enjoy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a crystal clear, golden colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit citruses and pines with a bit of a juicy sweetness. Floral tropical fruits, some rye spice, and a light bready pale malt sweetness. Flavor is similar. Big grapefruit pines, juicy resins, floral tropical fruits, and a nice rye spice and lightly sweetened malt backing with some caramel notes. Finishes dry, citrusy, and moderately bitter with a nice rye spice and slight caramel. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a really solid DIPA. Tons of fresh, bitter, juicy, citruses with a nice rye spice and light caramel sweetness. Nice one.

(bottle - 22 oz) Cloudy orange pour with a fizzy white head. Lots of sweetness and citrus in the aroma with a good amount of pine resin and rye dryness under it. Flavor is really nice. Tons of citrus at the start with a bitter and sticky pine hop middle. Lots of fruit and rye dryness and bitterness at the finish. Really smooth and easy to drink.
