Shared 3 ways at lunch.
Slightly cloudy, orange pour. Some white head, solid retention. Strong aroma of fresh hops and rye, both prominent.
Hoppy resin and intense rye consume my palate, malt be damned! Unfortunately for them, I don't really like rye, and its abundance here is a turn off.
If rye and west coast IPAs are your thing, this is for you.

This poured out as a slightly hazy copper color, a nice sized sticky white head on top too. The lacing was pretty strong on this beer. The smell of the beer to me is a little funky, it's hoppy but it also has a minimal twang to it that is a bit off to me. The taste of the beer is big, it's got lots of hops, good malt base and solid bitter spicy finish. The mouthfeel of the beer is medium bodied, nice carbonated and oily. Overall it was a fun beer to have.

The appearance is above average for the style: fine lacing, bright white head and red amber color which is transparent. There is some sediment at the bottom of the bottle that produces fish food in the glass.
The nose is excellent. There is predominantly tropical and citrus aromas from the hops and spicy malt from the rye. As the brew warms, the nose is dominated by the malt (both spicy and sweet) and alcohol.
The taste is rather average for a rye pale ale. I detect spicy malt and some bittering hops, but the alcohol bite cuts through. The alcohol disrupts the nice balance between the malt backbone and hops.
The feel is medium and provides some oily notes.
I am a big fan of Rye'd da Lightning, so I was excited to try this double version. If this brew can be made such that the alcohol does not push its way through the taste, then I'd give it a higher overall score. I think fans of Lightening should give this a try. However, this won't be a repeat buy for me.

From trade. Pours cloudy yellowish orange with a big fluffy white head. Stuffed up right now, but getting some orange zest, lemon, and grapefruit. Not a whole lot of smell here. Big up front bitter, some citrus. Not a lot going on, and I don’t pick up much rye in aroma or taste. Medium mouthfeel with medium high carbonation. Honestly this is pretty bland. Not a bad beer, but expected more from FFF. This seems to have a similar profile to Panzer Wolf, which I also found to be bland. Just give me the Dreadnaught
