Lets keep this one simple as I expect this to be in the top 250 beers before long.

L. The density of this is amazing, you can see yeast suspended in mid pour, huge bright orange body, and a nice white head that left a lot of lacing. A damn impressive double IPA look.

S. Rye bitterness dominates, giving way to sharp citrus notes and tropical fruits.

T. Make broo doo more intense and add a huge amount of rye bitterness and you've got this beer. Wow this is just damn amazing. So bitter but it's that rye flavor anyone having this is hoping for, but the three floyds malt and hops behind it.

M. Ok this is hot and bitter. It seems to work better than the sum of parts if you will.

O. Hoprod rye, you have a challenger. This is amazing beer....period end of story.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pour cloudy yellow orange with a small puffed up white head. Slight lacing down the glass.

Aroma is sharp rye notes, citrus and pine. A bit of grapefruit zest and bread in the background.

Big grapefruit rind and other citrus flavor up front. A little earthy and bready before finishing with a rye-resin 1-2 punch.

Medium body and carbonation. Finishes pretty bitter.

Not too bad, but the flavors were a bit muddled. I enjoyed Rye da Lightning more. The extra hops seemed to overwhelm the rye to provide more flavor harshness and less of the wonderful citrus explosion with a hint of rye of its little brother.

From 01/25/12 notes. Brought this back from Chicago a few days ago, bought it from the store around the corner from Hopleaf for $13.99. 22 oz. bottle poured into my Bell's tulip.

a - Pours a hazy yellow-orange color with one finger of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of rye, citrus hops , tropical fruits, fruity malts, grapefruit, mangos, floral hops, some bready malts. Rye is prevalent in the nose, but a ton of tropical fruits and citrus hops as well. Really nice.

t - Tastes of grapefruit, citrus hops, fruity malts, rye, tropical fruits, lemon, floral hops, earthy notes, and some pineapple. More citrus here and less rye, but still very hoppy and awesome. Taste has some moderate bitterness to it, but not too much considering the ABV.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Some moderate bitterness bite in the mouthfeel.

o - Overall a really nice rye DIPA. Rye is up there in the nose and lots of citrus and tropical fruits throughout. Would definitely have it again.

22oz bottle into a tulip.

A: Pours a translucent brass with a puffy white head. Great retention.

S: Resinous pineapple, clementine, and grass aromas pop out immediately, followed by some sweet crystal malt.

T: Oily, piney bitterness, lactose-like sweetness, mango and grapefruit, more pine, lightly spicy rye, floral. Dank.

M: Medium-bodied with active carbonation.

O: The use of NZ hops in this beer is fantastic - very resinous and fruity. Could have used a bit more rye but perhaps it was covered up by the hop spiciness.
