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.

ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2013
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.

Draft, bright hazed orange with small white head. Aroma has bright citrusy and floral, earthy undertones. Flavors have assertive citrus and rye, honey dew, mango, caramelly finish. Fairly sweet and sticky finish. Seems under attenuated. I think the smaller version is more my speed.

Thx to kermis @ Rampkrot Whale tasting – 65 cl. Bottle sampled. Bright amber orange, big fluffy white head. Wonderful full pine nose, light caramel and spices, great hops, nicely sticky resin,… Taste is very juice grapefruit, some pine, almost soap, great hop profile, very light caramel, touch citrus, rye, bitter spices in the back, bitter zesty soapy pine,… Oily body, very easy to drink, nice.

650ml bottle @ Super IPA tasting from Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen

Pours dark orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of sweet malty notes, caramel, stingy hops, fruits, toffee and citrus. Taste is malty, hoppy and fruity with hints of rye, grass, lemon, caramel and toffee. Finish is malty, sweetish and hoppy with floral notes and hints of grass and lemon. Quite balanced, malty, sweetish and hoppy DIPA with a nice touch of rye.

burg326 (3670) - 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.

Patrickctenchi (3654) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Pours hazy golden-yellow with a short white head. Aroma of rye, grapefruit peel. Taste is a rye malt, citrus hops. Deep, rich rye flavour over a well balanced hoppiness. Very enjoyable.

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?

(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.
