Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2012
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.

65cl, no mention of ABV, as Rye da Tiger, new exclusive American brew Anno 2012, thx to Secret Santa!, very complex bitter brew, fruity/spicy and slightly woody/sweet, balanced, cloudy, good head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

Atom (1342) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bomber thanks to queenholly, pours a cloudy copper/orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma is tropical, oranges, pineapple, with a nice balance of rye and hop spice. Taste of rye spice, sweet bready caramel malts, citrus, and bitter pine throughout. Really great aroma here! Very enjoyable.

This poured a darker orange to red color with a beige head. Aroma was fruity tropical hops, and rye, booze and caramel. Flavor was much the same, good balance of fruity hops and malt, not over the top bitter, booze is a little hotter than I would have liked but still a pretty solid beer.

Aroma- pretzels, rye, hay, hops, smokiness Appearance- lighter colored than I anticipated, nice lacing Taste- crazy amount of rye upfront, nice smothering of hops, some malt to clean the palate up, more rye on the finish Palate- very nice mouthfeel on this one, heavy but not cloyingly so Overall- 3F strikes again with a crazy brew. This one really surprised me, all in good ways.

I was lucky enough to discover this behind a layer of Arctic Panzer-wovles at the beer store nearby. Last and only one on the the shelf....it was as though there was that cliche moment where the godly light shines down and the angels sing in choirs...but the beer....it was ok...i expect more from 3F (i know em well enough to call them 3F rather than three floyds ; - ) ). this was a good IPA a good IIPA even, but it seemed to lack the 3F influence. It was as though someone brewed a beer and knocked out the 3F brewers and slapped their sticker on here....not to say i wouldn’t drink this again because it was even better than sierra nevada’s relentless, but that i expected more....ah well...guess ill have to get drunk off this stuff...oh darn...

Bomber. Boiled over a bit when opened. Looks like a science experiment, in that sediment is constantly floating around. Delicious. The rye compliments the hops quite well. I could drink these all day.

Advocate_Ames (428) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2012
A nice foam head followed by a nice scent. I smell citrus, pine, grapefruit, slight rye, and malts. I taste barley, caramelized malts, oranges, hops, and rye. Overall it has a medium level of bitterness. This is a good brew and won’t corrupt or put stress on the palate. I would enjoy to have this again.

Delicious brew(thanks jlanning215) citrus piney all around great. Lots of lacing, pour is a gold hue with surrounding sedement. Taste was off the charts happiness. Not too much of an alcohol taste at all. Great brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
