Review from notes...

Poured a pale golden honey color with 2 fingers of bright white foamy head.

The aroma bursting out of my glass was filled with spicy rye and some really dank hops!

The taste was dominated by some very dank and citrus hops with spicy rye characteristics flying co pilot. Had a slight malt backbone. Very tasty.

Medium bodied with the perfect amount of carbonation. Very drying hop filled finish. Left me with some very hop dragon like breath.

Overall, this beer was fantastic. Dank as hell, fully of spice and easy to drink.

Amazing. Rich, citrus, perfect. I don't have much to say other then perfection. This is another one I had fresh and then 6 months after the fresher the better. This is another one I wouldn't sit on which I am sure that is not an option as they only made it once. So I don't even know if there is any out there. I know this has nothing to do with the beer but a great label as well. Floyd's just keeps killing it.

Tanks merc for sharing

The beer pours a clear amber with a thin off-white head that laces. The nose is citrusy hoppy with a touch of rye spice and malt. The taste is relatively underwhelming with an expected amount of citrus hoppiness and touch rye spice. I could imagine this taste popping with a fresh bottle. The mouthfeel is almost syrupy sweet with a lingering spiciness. Good beer that'd be made great with freshness.

Thanks to Momar42 for the bottle share! Part of a 22 oz bottle poured into a Duvel artist tulip. Notes from last night's Skins/Cowboys game.

A: Pours a hazy copper color. The head is a one finger white color with unimpressive retention.

S: There's a really nice tropical fruit profile from the hops - which I've now come to expect from FFF. In particular, it's melon, grapefruit, and cantaloupe that I notice aromatically. There's a lot of rye malts that come through in this one.

T: The first thing that hits the palate is mango, melon, and grapefruit hop flavors. Rye comes through strongly afterwards, and some slight herbal piny hops in the finish almost gives off an onion/garlic vibe when backed up with the rye flavors. A bit on the rough side - both in texture and flavor.

M: Like I said, a little rough and heavily textured. It's not really dry per se, but the tingly coarseness doesn't mesh well with the slick, lingering finish. Low carbonation seemingly makes the texture come across as being thicker than it is.

O: I'm totally blaming palate fatigue as to why I only think this is just good. Going from a quartet of sours, a cucumber beer, a sweet vanilla/coffee porter, and freakin' BCBCS to a rye pale ale isn't the smoothest transition - but this beer still came off as a little rough. I'd love to try it again, though, because this was apparently an old bottle.

Cool beer for a great record store in Wicker Park. Pours an orange tiger eye color with a nice head. Nose consists of onion, dank, earthy hops with some spicy rye notes. Taste opens up with citrusy hops, which move on to caramel malts; these are quickly overwhelmed by a barrage of onion, dank hops with a subtle amount of spicy rye malts. Mouth is full and smooth. Overall, this is a solid rye IPA...I love this style and I love the execution of FFF's part.

Bottle poured into a GI tulip

A - A great looking beer. A light copper beer with streams of gold on the edges. Poured with a huge, off white head composed of small bubbles of carbonation. Settled to a nice rock of foam sitting on top with a ton of lacing as you drink it

S - Rye spicyness dominates up front. There are hints of black pepper, slight lemon peel and nice, bready malt.

T - Definitely get the rye profile initally. As it carries on, there's lemon peel and a slight hoppy bitterness. There is a thick bready malt near the back end and a slight caraway seed that lingers on with the lemon peel. Complex and well-balanced.

MF - Thick body with slight carbonation. There is a slight rye spicyness that lingers on the tongue on the finish similar to what you'd find in a good Rye whiskey.

O - A great rye beer that is well balanced, brings a nice rye spicyness and brings something different from what we are used to. I'll be curious to see how Rye da Tiger compares to this one and hope they make this one again.

Brewed in collaboration with Reckless Records for Record Store Day 2012.
Thanks to Jim for this surprise beer I thought was long gone...

Burnished orange, saturated tones with steady rising carbonation trails. Creamy foam that adheres nicely inside the glass leaving behind a halo of lacing. Extremely resilient head retention, unbroken for the duration of the glass.

Dried citrus peel and tangerine zest, some light spiciness and finally pale malt bleeding through.

Burly rye character, grainy with a mild spiciness shot through with zesty citrus notes of grapefruit and tangerine. Citrus tea and pine needles. Somewhat subdued after a few months but still holding its own and extremely drinkable. Medium bodied with a dry bitter finish, very light malt sweetness in the background. Overall very solid, with FFF's trademark hop signature all over it.

On tap at FFF brewpub.
I have had this a few times, but I was slacking on reviews for the past year or so...

Served in a half-pint nonic.

Looks great-- clear, glowing, orange body with a nice effervescent stream of bubbles forming a white head of a fat finger. Decent retention. Sticky fat chunks of lacing left behind.

Smells of spicy rye, touch of earthiness, big old citrusy hops, and a little hint of what I can only describe as melon?! The flavor has a dry malt bill with the spicy rye and earthiness followed by a crisp and clean hop profile. Lots of citrusy grapefruit hops and a strong bitterness. Dry finish with a lingering rye note.

Feels medium-full. Firm body. Good carbonation.

Overall-- solid. Call this an ipa, I'll drink it. Call it a pale ale, I'll drink it. Call it a rye ale, and I'll say it's one of the best rye ales I've ever had. Just delicious.

smells of piney hops, caramel, grapefruit, subtle hints of toasted grains (rye).
very hoppy up front, floral, citrusy, very sweet/tart on the cheeks initially. a delicious rye ale, leaning towards an ipa. subtle hints of rye pop up behind all the hops.
medium body, nice carbonation, creamy feel on lips..

From a bomber poured into a duvel tulip. Pours a clear orange copper with an inch of off white head that shrinks with nice lacing. Aroma is tangerine, pine resin, grapefruit, apricot, and rye. Flavor follows aroma. Blood fruit, tangerine, grapefruit, some tropical fruit, and a rye based malty backbone. Thin to medium mouthfeel. Very good.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint. Thanks to Corbet!

This beer pours an orange color with a small head. The aroma is absolutely fantastic, it's got that rye sharpness, but it is complimented by a perfect blend of hops that round out the aroma. The taste is very good, it's rather hoppy, with the citrus and rye flavors riding out a nearly perfect finish. The mouthfeel is lighter and well-carbonated, and the drinkability is great. Overall, this is an exceptional Rye IPA. It's just perfectly composed so the hops and rye compliment each other to a T.

Short aging on this bad boy, maybe 4 weeks. First of all, the art is magnificent on the bottle. The awfulness of the name almost takes the bonus of the art away, but the art wins. But seriously, "da"? Come on, guys. Anyways...

A - poured from the bottle semi-vigorously into a bordeaux glass. Dark orange/golden in color. Almost opaque. Very pretty. The head is thin and initially fluffy with minimal lacing.

S - Maybe a little rye in the background, but I mostly smell caramel sweetness and tropical fruitiness. Don't smell the booze at all. It smells very much like a couple other fantastic FFF beers. I could sit here and smell it all night.

T - But maybe I'll drink it instead. Tropical fruitiness and a little malty sweetness. A tiny bit of bitterness at the end, but nothing palate-smashing, and it definitely doesn't stick around. At least the bitterness doesn't. You're left with a very nice aftertaste, mostly sweet malts. It actually tastes exactly like it smells. Which is to say, it is really, really good.

M - medium. The carbonation is spot-on, and leaves a nice crisp finish that offsets the malty aftertaste.

O - yeah, this one is amazing. Although I wouldn't put it in the category of Red's Rye and Hop Rod, it certainly has it's own place. The rye is not the main player here, but if you can get past that almost insignificant fact, you will love this beer. It is crazy good, and dangerously easy to drink. Would love for the boys in Munster to put this on a rotation. Maybe they could boot Jinx Proof for it.

Pours a mostly clean copper tinted amber, full fluffy bone white head, good retention and lacing. Scent is strong on the tropical fruit notes, citrus and pine with moderate rye spice notes, caramel and biscuity malt presence. Fruity and bitter hops star in the flavor with the rye taking a back seat along with the lightly sweet malts. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness. Solid rye beer all around, while not completely rye forward, still stands up to some of the better hoppy rye beers such as those from Bear Republic and Founders.

22 oz bottle, thanks Chris. Served in a glass.

Pours a clearish golden bronze color with a quickly fading off white head that leaves smalls dots of lace trailing the glass. Malty and spicy nose, fairly bready, strong hints of rye and resiny hop. Flavor is much sweeter with citrus hops, red tropical fruit and caramel malt dominating. Spice is much less present than nose, but dry finish still has an earthy rye tinge to it. Finish also has a slight bubblegum aftertaste to it that I find unpleasant. Syrupy medium thick body with soft carbonation. If not for the finish this would be a favorite rye beer for the amount of citrus hops it packs.

Picked up a bomber at the brewery in Munster, IN for $10. I didn't really have any expectations, since I am not a huge fan of Rye beers, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one!

A - Pours a light golden brown color. Pretty light and clear for a rye beer.

S - I was not expecting this hoppy of a smell, but I should have known, since Three Floyd's will do that to you. It has an awesome citrus / mango / pine smell. Almost like a Zombie Dust or a Gumballhead.

T - This was definitely the most unique and hoppy tasting rye beer I've had, but it was VERY surprisingly easy to drink. Very well balanced and refreshing. Almost thirst quenching, which is weird for a hoppy rye. You get that citrus / pine hop right up front, but it fades quickly into a beer I could actually gulp down if I didn't restrain myself.

M - Nicely carbonated and actually a lot thinner than I was expecting.

O - Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with this. If I had an opportunity to, I would definitely buy several more.

Mad thanks to justanothergalen for bringing this to trade at the Solar Eclipse party!

Pours out a vibrant gold color with phenomenal clarity for anything with rye in it. Lots of citrus and hoppy aroma going on, couldn't pick anything up in the aroma that would lead to me saying "rye!" but whats most important is that this smelled like a hoppy winner.

Taste, wow amazingly light bodied, this one was a lot more similar to zombie dust and gumballhead than I would have thought based on my expectations. Hops are so good and fresh, and it must have a decent shelf life, because I didn't drink it until at least 2-3 weeks after it had been trekked out here 2000 miles. Just another example of a brewery that makes great hoppy beers, being overshadowed by something bigger, in this case, Dark Lord. This tasted as good as FiftyFifty's Ryepa used to. . . i.e. in that small window when its real good or fresh, but the last few times, just all bitterness.

This is relatively straight forward, and if you're looking for just the rye, you might be disappointed, but if you're looking for minimal, but adequate rye aspects in a world class hoppy beer, go no further.

Oh, and the bitterness and sweetness are so low here, its just a ton of hops, mild citrus flavors, and fractional rye impact. If it were in their portfolio, this would be the most deserved beer in the Yum foods brand.

Appearance: It has a nice clear golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: Very tropical smell (citrus, mango and grapefruit) along with some piney notes, spicy rye and light caramelly malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a nice hop character bringing out citrus and grapefruit but some mango in there as well, some earthiness, some bready/biscuity malts, a rye spiciness and some light caramel.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel. The flavors really work well in this one.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas.

Reviewing the Rye'd Da Lightning from Three Floyds Brewing Company.
Score: 92

This bottle was picked up from the Three Floyds' brewery on June 14. Enjoyed 06/16/12, served in a Hill Farmstead stemmed tulip and shared with my father for father's day.

Appearance: Pours an orange-amber color that is not "murky" or "cloudy," but I certainly can't see through it. Two fingers of cream colored seafoam head at pour settles to a thin layer with splotchy clumps of bubbly head. Excellent lacing and retention. Excellent cling too. 5/5

Smell: Lots of bright tropical citrus and a mild amount of rye spice. Mango, rye, grapefruit, tangerine, a little honey, and sweet pine sap. Lemon, sweet caramel malt, a touch of biscuit malt and a little peppercorn. Really nice aroma. Reminisce of Zombie Dust plus some spice, but not quite as good as Zombie Dust. 4.5/5

Taste: Very juicy and loaded with tropical fruit citrus. There's pineapple, tangerine, mango, peach and orange. Less rye spice than in the nose. Nice juice orange and caramel malt backbone. Nice bitter pine flavor in back half as well. Orange/pine/mild caramel flavor in the finish. As it layers, a bit of dirty caramel malt and earthy hops flavors comes through towards the finish/aftertaste. A lot more malty and less "hoppped up" than anticipated, but this brew is very balanced. 4/5

Mouthfeel: Super light and juicy, but no real "hop kick" on the tongue (unlike most Three Floyds IPA offerings). Light-plus bodied, low carbonation. Bitter finish with light citrus sweetness. 3.5/5

Overall: Are we sure this is actually a rye beer? This super-hopped rye beer has a super solid IPA flavor profile, but overall is not nearly as good as Artic Panzer Wolf or Dreadnaught or Zombie Dust or Alpha King in my opinion (all of which are distributed outside of the brewery).

Recommendation: Definitely worth drinking, but not worth a special trip to Munster or running around the city to special tappings in order to obtain.

Pairings: Reuben sandwich.

Cost: $10 for a 22 oz (bomber) bottle.

A - Medium orange colour with a small amount of white head.

S - Tangerine, blood oranges, sweet caramel and spicy rye. Very fresh and vibrant aroma, typical of FFF beers.

T - Grapefruit, tangerine, blood orange flavours are complimented by a decent sweet caramel malt backbone. The rye adds a nice spiciness and another layer of complexity to this beer.

M - Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation.

Beer shared by Thorpe, served in a Three Floyds stemmed glass. At the time of this review, this is #4 on the "Top Beers - Rye Beer" list on beeradvocate.com.

Beer is brown with a thin tan off white head of small bubbles, decent retention, some lacing, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is mildly hoppy, a little grainy, sweet with some yeast.

Not as hoppy as I thought, the rye comes through with a nice mild floral / earthiness on the palate. Decent but probably not a repeat for me.

22 oz. bottle served in a Stone nonic pint.

A: Pours a clear amber color with a nice off white head forming on the pour. Thick and frothy in nature it recedes slowly to a thick cap and collar.

S: Nice grassy hop character with some sweet caramel and some light spiced rye. A little fruity bitterness is in there as well.

T: Wow. Grassy hops are upfront with a smooth transition into great malt body. Sweet caramel and nice biscuit flavors make up the majority of the middle and the rye spiciness hits toward the middle, end of the palate. There is a light fruity flesh flavor that as a mild bitterness to it on the finish as well.

M: Light bodied, but has a ton of flavor that coats the palate. Medium carbonation. Crushable.

O: Color me impressed. The balanced flavor profile is wonderful and this stuff is absolutely off the charts in terms of drinkability. I could drink this stuff all day and I had no problem finishing the bomber.

big thanks to stxSS07 for sending this my way along with some of the teku glasses.

a - brew poured a fairly opaque almost pewter orange. when held to the light i could see some shadows and outlines of the objects on the other side. a thin finger of bubbles served as the head which left relatively quick leaving nothing more than just a skin of bubbles. lacing was spotty, but present.

s - HOLY MOLY! smells like a world class IPA. wonderful citric and grapefruit blast. some rye is present, but this is a hop bonanza!!! smells insanely good.

t - the taste does not disappoint. the hops in the nose are perfectly married with a wonderful rye grain presence. very earthy without being gross. just a masterpiece.

m - medium bodied. solid. even carbonation. light and easy to drink. really well balanced.

o - overall, rye beers are one of my favorites and i think i may have found the best rye beer i've ever tried. the hops are perfect right now. why, oh why can't i live walking distance to three floyds...heck, i'll take the regular offerings on the shelf. PLEASE EXPAND distro!!!

On-tap at FFF.

A - Pours a darker golden/orange color, white frothy head, thin collar, wisps on top.

S - Rye, hops, toasted malts, citrus up front. Not over-rye'd, nicely balanced with a good hop presence and the citrus notes add a nice complexity.

T - Citrus, bitter hops, rye, and toasted grains. Again, all very well-balanced and works together nicely. It's a hoppy rye, which is obvious since it's a FFF beer. Finish is toasted malts and hops.

M - Light body, good carbonation, dry grainy finish.

O - I destroyed my pour in record time. Not sure what it's like out of the bottle, but on-tap, this is an excellent hoppy rye beer. I will definitely be having this one again if it's on-tap next time I stop by FFF.
