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.

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.

Bomber poured into a FFF tulip

A - Bright, hazy orange with brown undertones. Poured with a big head comprised of many small carbonation bubbles. Leaves nice lacing down the sides. There are also a small amount of floaters as well

S - Citurs mixed with rye and pepper come up in the nose. I pick up orange, grapefruit, rye bready, and a slight hint of pepper.

T - Sweet orange comes first. As the beer progresses, there is a rye, bready malt that comes through along with a slight pepper spice and a hint of caraway seeds. The hops comes through on the end with a slight bitter grapefruit that lingers in the finish along with the rye.

MF - Thick and sticky sweet beer that has light carbonation. Leaves a slight hoppy residue that lingers on the tongue in the finish.

O - This is essentially a Rye version of Dreadnaught. It's a sweet and malty beer that has a nice hop presence on the back end. The rye adds a nice dimension to give it a nice bready malt and a slight pepper presence.
