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.

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.

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.
