22 ounce bottle. Lots of carbonation in pour. Urine like aroma. Big bitterness and high alpha hops. Pretty intense and bold. Slight malty character.

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 (4062) - 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.

Bomber from akurzynski - thanks, Adam! And of course, thanks to Ronnie James-ah! Gorgeous pour, lustrous deep orange with tons of soapy bubbles and complex lacing. Nose is buoyantly fruity and hoppy to start, with not much rye detectable. But that element comes across very prominently in the taste, complementing the fruitiness quite well and substituting for the pine you get in other variants. Tons of orange, rye malt, bitter rind, and other tropical fruits going on, all of it coming together in a nicely spicy and quite lengthy finish. Race for the morning!

Patrickctenchi (3934) - 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.

tiong (3894) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2013
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.

drewbeerme (3879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2012
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.

burg326 (3836) - 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.
