Bottle picked up for me by Darkdust, thanks so much. Been wanting to try this for so long, I was so stoked that they decided to bottle this again. Shared with my wife on the evening of my Grandfathers funeral. Poured into a chalice. Dark orange, gold, trecale, finger or so of creamy head, no real lacing. Nose is candy sugar, sweet malt, caramel, licorice, anise. Tastes bitter, sweet, hot from the Abv, breads, biscuity, some dark fruit in there as well. The burn lingers and dies, a bit of a tongue numbness.really complex and good. NoYouDidnt (12) - Lafayette, Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Poured into tulip glass. Looks good. Amber color nice head. Smells okay. Sweet aroma, and even like grassy sweetness. Tastes pretty okay NYD. Real similar to the smell. No bad aftertaste. It’s weird not having the Three Floyds smell and taste that all the IPAs and pale ales all have (which are pretty well the same color) so that’s a little surprising. Overall, this is not really up your alley too much. Nice to try, but maybe pick something else up. dinkle50 (1477) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Cloudy orange to red pour with a single finger head. Aroma is spicy with some candied orange notes. Creamy mouth. Taste is sweet, yet has a sharp bite to it. Lots of candied orange and slightly boozy. Bitter bite in the finish. Lots of lace. BrewHaMeister (456) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2015
Bomber poured murky amber with a three finger creamy off-white head. Aromas of spice, colve, ginger, sweet malt, dried fruit, banana, and biscuit with a mild boozy finish. Flavor is somewhat sweet. Very good beer. wlajwl (6814) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Aroma is spices, malts and a strong undercurrent of vegetables/heat. The flavor is malts, spices, caramel, mint/slight mouthwash and a slightly sour/warming finish.

Orange pour from bottle at home. White head. Spicy meatball. Super fruity. Orange, lemon and pepper. Really complex taste. I think I like it Jordtbrooks (20) - Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2015
Pours a hazy Amber. Nose of banana, fruit and bread. Taste is of a malty breadiness with a slight sweetness. yourilevesque (1829) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2015
Dégustée chez Janick en compagnie de Marc-André, Stéphane et Roger, Cheers! De cette bière peu foncée aux reflets orangés, émanent d’étonnantes arômes mentholés et épicés. Je perçois du gingembre, beaucoup de fleurs, des herbes qui par moment me rappellent la lavande et même du dentifrice. En bouche l’alcool est bien présente et le liquide est un peu lourd, malgré la forte présence d’herbes qui devraient normalement attendrir mon palais. Très épicée, assez effervescente mais fatigante à boire, le fond de mon verre s’est retrouvé dans le buisson pour faire place au Magnum de Cantillon qui m’interpellait curieusement davantage... madelfonatree (317) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Apparently bottled 7/17/2015 enjoyed 8/22/2015 in a Hopslam tulip/snifter.
Look - Finger of off white head. Settles to a ring and leaves blotchy lacing. Fine, medium, and large bubbles. Bright but translucent dark orange body.
Smell - Ginger. Biscuit. Booze. Floral. Nose deep in it picks up dank hop and grapefruit. Banana. It smells chewy.
Taste - Ginger overpowers everything else. Caramel. Biscuit. Floral. Booze.
Feel - Heavy. Juice up front, dries up quickly. Spice and alcohol burn.
Overall - I drank this earlier than planned because figured was hop forward like most Floyds. Hops on nose. Ginger beer. I wish Alpha Kong and Alpha Klaus would switch names. Niko100 (2914) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Hazy amber/orange color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of sweet malt, yeast, caramel, & fruit/citrus; Flavor of sweet malt, yeast, caramel, molasses, fruit/citrus, hops, and spice; Warm finish; Considering the alcohol it’s fairly well hidden; Quite sweet & somewhat strange offering.
