A - cloudy, hazy orange with a huge, off white head that has great retention

S - oranges, grapefruit, bread, cake batter, alcohol

T - grapefruit, citrus, cake batter sweetness

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

I really enjoyed this beer, but I was hoping for some profound rye notes. I didn't get any rye in fact. I really enjoyed the hop character, and I have a soft spot for cake batter-like sweetness. Despite the lack of rye notes, I was impressed. It's definitely worth a try.

Had on tap at FFF. Review from notes.

A: Pours a hazy orange color with a large white head made up of fine bubbles. Decent head retention and lacing.

S: Big citrus aroma, lots of grapefruit and orange zest mixed with some spicy rye and pepper.

T: More big citrus fruits up front, orange, grapefruit, and a bit of pineapple. Some bready and caramel malt with a kick of spice near the finish.

M: A big medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Slightly bitter finish.

O: A very solid beer, a spicy Dreadnaught. Should have had more of it.

Shared by nuplastikk. Thanks man!

The beer is straw yellow and mildly hazy with a thick white cap. The aroma offers a bouquet of tropical fruits atop a sturdy malt bill. Tangerines, pineapple, grapefruit blend beautifully with bread and biscuit flavors. Robust and full bodied with ample carbonation. Alcohol content is hidden well. Another very tasty offering from FFF.

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.
