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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Fairly hazy flat burnt-orange in color. Forms a thick white head that has excellent retention and leaves quite a bit of foam on the way down.

S: Lightly sweet caramel base with lots of citrus and orange hops. Pine and mango to a lesser extent with the rye picking up on the back end.

T: Rather sweet with the unmistakable flavor of orange juice, but the OJ is balanced out with the spice of the rye, a lot of tropical fruit, and just a touch of pine. There is a little alcohol on the finish, but it is rather tame.

M: Medium bodied with a sweetness that is present throughout the beer. Mild bitterness. Medium carbonation.

O: Another very nice beer from FFF. Typically, I would find a beer like this to be too sweet for my tastes, but the sweetness plays well with the tropical fruit flavors while the rye seems to balance it out. In the end, it makes for an enjoyable beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

bottle picked up not hat long ago when i was visiting the FFF area. had a pint of this on tap at the brewpub, but this review is for the bottle i picked up in town. enjoyed from a FFF teku.

a - brew poured a deep murky orange with a thin off white head of tiny bubbles. visible carbonation could be seen rising to the surface of the glass from the bottom. when held to the light, the brew was semi transparent.

s - much more hoppy and tropical citrus than i remembered when i had it on tap at the brew pub. has a nice glazing of rye coming in strong on the nose as well. i remember thinking that this one didn't hold a candle to rye'da lightning when i had it on tap, but this bottle seems to have a really fresh tropical vibe going on.

t - the flavor comes in big with rye leading the way trailed by a really nice citric hop and subtle bittering on the finish.

m - soft and a bit light bodied. doesn't pack much of a punch. a bit watery even.

o - overall, not as wonderful as rye'da lightning, but still worth seeking out. FFF does a really great job with a rye beer.

Pours a slightly reddish orange with light layer of white head. Nose is chock full of ripe grapefruit, pine hops, and slightly spicy rye. Notes of lemon sneak in as well. Taste is somewhat sweet and malty with a nice bright fruity flavor that pairs nicely with a slightly spicy and bitter hop character. Mouthfeel is light to medium with moderate carbonation. Overall, another delicious hoppy brew from Three Floyds. Worth seeking out.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Served in a Three Floyds shaped glass.

A: Poured out a fairly clear, golden color, with a slight chill haze and a bunch of suspended yeast. The head was about a finger or so and settled down after a bit. Awesome!

S: Smell of FFF signature profile right away: Grapefruit, orange, and pomegranate all wrapped up in a nice, neat, rye-infused package.

T: Candy-coated booze upfront, along with a substantial rye component that tried to compete with FFF's hop bitterness but couldn't. Still though, the rye contribution was just about perfect. I got most of it on the late, late aftertaste.

M: Perfectly carbonated, on the sweet side of the spectrum, but it was that "man candy," citrusy, sugariness that keeps people coming back for more and more. The lacing was substantial.

O: I've yet to try a single FFF IPA that didn't rock and this is no exception. One of the best of 2012 in my opinion!

A- Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a bit of sediment floating about. A very thin white head that turns into an even thinner cap. Leaves a bit of spotty lacing at best.

S- An absolute ton and a great mixture of tropical fruits and spicy rye.

T- Exactly like the nose. Taste is really great. Everything goes very well together. Very outstanding brew.

M- Fuller side of medium and good amount of carbonation.

O- One of the best DIPA I've had. This beer is outstanding.

A big thanks to Mike for sharing this brew with me.
