On tap at Strong Ale.

A: Effulgent orange with no clarity though a nice color. Big frothy white head.

S: Strong pine resin with lots of orange and grapefruit rind and flesh. Pungent hop presence with a bit of bread and biscuit.

T: Juicy orange and grapefruit with notes of biscuit and rye that provide a solid foundation for the hop expression. Huge hop flavor with a smooth lower moderate bitterness. Very well hidden alcohol.

M: Medium body with upper medium carbonation.

Overall: Toward the balanced end of the Double IPA spectrum but still very nice. Well done.

Serving type: on-tap

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Hazy orange. A few bubbles well up and there are a few wisps on top, but otherwise no real head.

Smell - Big tropical fruit and grapefruit hop aroma. A touch of malt sweetness. I don't get any rye.

Taste - Strong grassy hop. Grapefruit. Not the sweet tropical and pale malt flavor I expected. Instead the rye cuts the sugars and delivers a bite with hop bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Bitter and rye finish. Medium carbonation.

Overall - The rye flavor is great. Blends with the bitterness really well.

Bottle courtesy of apocalypsezombie. Thanks, Tom!

It's pouring a hazy orange with over a 2 finger head of foam..I pulled it from the fridge about an hour ago.

The smell is all sorts of hoppy. Citrus, pine, volumes of tropical fruit pineapple is there for sure, and a nice spiciness from the rye. Overall, not overly bitter in the nose.

And then I taste it and all of what I've written is there as well as a very solid malty taste that adds just the right touch of sweetness. Wow, this is very tasty and I'm not getting much, if any, of a booze burn.

Full bodied with lighish carbonation, the mouthfeel is truly grand. Man, that rye really adds a great dimension to a DIPA. Thanks again, Tom! An awesome drinking experience is what I have here.

Thanks to Robbie for this bottle! About 1-2 months old (but no bottle dating).

A - Medium orange, slightly cloudy with ahin layer of cream-colored head.

S - A massive frsh grapefruit aroma up front with a big pine presence as well. Some lighter peach notes and touch of spicy from the rye provide secondary aromas. Very fresh and very inviting nose!

T - Fresh grapefruit, pine and peach flavours accompany a very good but not overwhelming bitterness. Light caramel and spice from the malt base in the background. Very fresh and juicy.

M - Medium body. Chewy. Light carbonation. Lots of stick hop oils.

Half inch white head, dark golden body. Plenty of small sediment floating. Sticky lacing, pretty decent head retention.

Dank + rye spice = yum aroma boner.

Rye spice and hoppiness is over the top, and I loves it. Melt backbone is there but gets blown away. If I had to guess it would be that this is a 10%abv.

Thicker mouthfeel, adequate carbonation.

Those who haven't had much rye beers beware, not for the fanit of heart (noobs). Can't say enough about. Yum thanks kawilliams81, go Huskies!

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.

1752nd on Review on BA
Bottle to Bavarian Lodge Tulip
22oz

Purchased from Famous Liquors, Forest Park, IL for 10.99

App- When I poured this out, It was a bit deeper orange. Looks like a very good beer in the glass. A deep yellow color intermixed with some other colors. A nice and puffy two finger head with some very nice and deep cling.

Smell- Big floral hops on this one. Not too much citrus. A faint grapefruit/tangerine. A bit of a wheat smell in there as well.

Taste- A very good IPA. It's tasty and crisp and clean. Slightly spicy with a balanced citrus back. Not overpowering and a nice drinker. The flavors are accentuated with a bit of resin and pine. So you get the whole thing in one go. Fruit, Rye, Hops, Pine, Resin

Mouth- Medium bodied with a medium carb level. Coats the tounge well with spicy flavor. Leaves a pleasant sweet grapefruit aftertaste.

Drink- I like me some FFF. I wish I would have bought more of these. This was a damn good rye IPA.

Thanks to AtlCarl for a great recent trade involving all sorts of things I'd been lusting after. You know if a guy you're trading with for the first time hits you up while on vacation & says "Hey, you want this beer?" that it's going to be a good swap. 22 oz. bottle split with my wife.

Pour is the first liquid to touch my sparkling new 7venth Sun Brewery glasses (thanks Brian!), & it's murky, opaque orange. Nose is surprisingly fruit along with a double-fistful of earhty rye. Nice beginning.

Rye'da Tiger is like a little touch of Jamaican soil dropped into a V-Mango-8. Mango & fruits from warmer climes are jarred with a forearm of bitterness to the teeth. The rye shows as a mix of the earthiness & spice - I usually find one or the other, but they're both ringing the bell. The mixture is sublime. Ice-slippery, Rye'da is a brief ride. It's not going to last long.

I find 3F seriously inconsistent; this beer shows off the Alpha King side of the brewery & not the, well, shitty side. Seriously excellent beer.

22oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.

L - hazy mustard color with a fluffy off-white head that settled to a layer leaving small globs and sheets of lacing behind.

S - tropical fruits and rye malt.

T - lots of tropical fruit flavor with the spiceness of the rye coming through finishing somewhat sweet and somewhat tart.

F - medium bodied with a creamy smooth feel.

O - a nice example of the style with a rye kick.
