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.

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.

bytemesis (4749) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle - thanks Jeremiah! Pour hazy golden amber with a large creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. A lot of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is wonderful grapefruit, a bit of pine. Flavor is about the same, plus a noticeable spiciness from the rye. Lightly sweet, light to medium bitter. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice beer.

dmac (4740) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2013
22oz bomber via trade. Poured a solid looking orange body with an average sized full foamy off white head. Aroma of rye spiciness, citrus fruit, bread crusts. Medium to fuller bodied with average carbonation and a long lingering bitter hop finish. Flavor of mango, light rye seeds, pineapple, tropical fruits and dry medium toast. Good stuff.

burg326 (4726) - Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2012
22 ounce bottle poured a golden color, aromas of tropical fruits, light pineapple, some spicy rye, and a touch of biscuit. Flavors are light biscuit up front with tropical fruits that are refreshing in the middle, and ended with a light rye after taste that made you want to drink it again, and again, and again.

22 oz. bottle. Mostly clear amber with strong retention. Aroma has a decent amount of fruit. Orange zest, lemons, tropical fruit and underlying rye. Nice!

Flavor has a light rye base with traces of grass and the same fruitiness that is found in the aroma. The body is a little on the thin side and is lacking in body. Not what I was expecting in that department. Some light alpha acid and has an oily mouthfeel. Some bready biscuit malt to help balance this beast. Overall pretty good.

From a 22 oz bottle shared in South Bend IN. Pours a hazy gold with an off white head. Grassy aroma. Flavors of light toffee and strong grassy hops. Tasty.
