Rye'd Da Lightning was spectacular so I was very excited to hear that this would be bottled. This beer pours a light to medium bodied, very cloudy dark burnt orange in color with a two finger soapy head. The nose is citrusy and dry. It has moderate bitterness and also a pretty prevalent Simcoe aspect as well. There is also a touch of alcohol present. The flavors feature slightly sweet malt and citrusy hops upfront. Its also a little soapy. I don't get much rye or spicy characteristics at all. It then changes to that trademark Simcoe quality with a good amount of alcohol. The amount of alcohol present really keeps this one from being well balanced. Overall this is a decent DIPA but not in the Dreadnaught, Arctic Panzer category and I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as Rye'd Da Lightning.

pours a golden murky with a thick amount of puffy and cloudy head
ripe tropical fruit, juicy, with hints of tangerine.
very balanced malt to hop ratio. lots of sweet malt with a strong tropical vibe. rye is very faint if noticeable at all. i found tigers little bro, lightening, far more spicy.
full with a mild carbonation
good but nothing mind blowing. i would drink again.

Served in a snifter at Firkin.
A Jefferson Starship song comes to mind... Anyway, this stuff pours a hazy brass-gold topped by over a finger of cream-white foam. The nose comprises honeydew, light grapefruit peel, light cilantro/leek, and a very light dash of rye spice. The taste brings in more of the same, with the cilantro/leek character happily subdued and some pine sap, pine needle, light cedar, and light honey coming into the mix as well. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a rather nice and tasty rye DIPA, though one that doesn't seem to make efficient use of the rye. Still, good times.

Bomber poured into a Duvel tulip.
If you are a 3 Floyds fan, you will like this beer. I am a fan, so I do enjoy it.
It has all the earmarks of their offerings: Great head retention, citrus-like aroma,
and lingering bitterness. Yes: rye spice to boot. It's rusty orange, with plenty of sediment.
Many of the 3F hop-forward offerings taste similar to me, and I like most of them.
Solid offering: hoppy, balanced, and offers a twist with the rye. Not quite as complex as D'naught, but worth a try. I like it more than the "Lightning" version. Looking forward to Boru in a month or so!

Just getting into IPAs and this one is right up my alley. Very floral nose of hops. A light-colored, non-hazy beer. Easy on the tongue with a bit of stronger hops in the aftertaste. But the sweetness of the hops calms it down before overwhelming my tastebuds. I would definitely order or buy again.

Pours a very hazy mango color with good head, retention and lacing. Juicy, tropical fruit aroma with somewhat sulfur-y notes. Tastes juicy, bitter, and flavorfully hop forward. I am pretty sure I wouldn't be able to identify rye if I drink this blind. Mouthfeel is medium, finishes clean and crisp with high carbonation. Has FFF written all over it.

No bottle date
Hill Farmstead wine glass
A: Pours a hazy cloudy orange color. Not a ton of head. Thin ring of white. Not a ton of lacing. Carbo low?
S: Well it fairly malty. I guess with a double rye IPA, that's what you get. Getting some nice hop character too: orange, citrus, pine the usual players. That rye spice is there.
T: Lots of hop bitterness on tip of tongue. The rye spice is there in the middle, along with a strong malt bill. I guess my palate was fatigued. This one is really starting to grow on me. As you drink those hop flavors come out more. Dry spicy finish. Lingering hop flavors.
M: Medium bodied.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a touch of hazy candy orange body with a light beige thick head of cream and the body is a snow globe of jetsam. There is a gentle microcarbonation pushing to the surface.
S- The green floral hops is big and bright.
T- The full flavor of unripe fruit hops has some bright green hops in the finish with an alcohol spice in the finish. Three is a woody green hop and rye flavor that lingers and grows in the finish as the beer opens.
M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a gentle fizz and an alcohol warmth on the exhale.
O- This is a nice full hop beer that brings rye and alcohol heat up to the hop level.

A - cloudy, hazy orange with a huge, off white head that has great retention
S - oranges, grapefruit, bread, cake batter, alcohol
T - grapefruit, citrus, cake batter sweetness
M - medium bodied, well carbonated
I really enjoyed this beer, but I was hoping for some profound rye notes. I didn't get any rye in fact. I really enjoyed the hop character, and I have a soft spot for cake batter-like sweetness. Despite the lack of rye notes, I was impressed. It's definitely worth a try.
