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.

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.

Poured into a pint glass from the bomber. The other half of the bottle was used in Smoked Gouda Soup, and it was fabulous. Leaving a nice off-white head, the beer was a copper color with tons of sediment floating in the glass. The sediment reminds me of a winter snow globe. The initial aroma is hops, this is obviously a beer by the Floyds. One also gets the alcohol in the aroma, but this is a minor issue. In the initial taste, the beer bursted with grapefruit like hops. A citrusy pineapple, a hint a peach skin and some pine were also present. Where this beer gets interesting is in the aftertaste. The tartness of the rye is accompanied by a grapefruit marmalade accent. The thicker texture really allows the flavor to linger and mellow on the tongue. And while the citrus mellows, the rye just seems top stay. A mild alcohol warming makes an impression, though it is surprisingly mellow for the ABV. Overall, this is a great beer. Best of all, no lines outside the building necessary for this one.

Great label, even better idea for a brew: a rye DIPA. Cheers!

A: A little haze on the pour, but it’s mostly a clean orange, pretty fizzy. The head is short and cream-colored, not moving from its original height of a half-inch; it’s a solid layer of foamy cream. Sparse spots of lacing.

S: A pungent, yet polished Three Floyds experience: hop aromas come out first in a big way, but with balance. In some other beers from this brewery, there’s a clear layering of juicy hops over caramel malts. Not here, though: the hops are a sweet and spicy mix of pepper, citrus, peach, and grass, and the malts have a good rye tone of pumpernickel spice and toffee. It all comes out spiced and dark, and I like it.

T: Not as crisp as the nose would have you believe, coming off more like a black ale than a spicy rye. Toasted malt flavors are what you notice first, toffee, near-burnt bread, dark pumpernickel tastes developing slowly and smoothly over the drink. It has a bit of anise, too, which makes it even more reminiscent of a black ale. Herbal, spicy hops give this a fiery cinnamon and lemon-pepper profile – more flavor than bitterness. This palate seems to be more about flavor maturity than hardcore IPA hoppiness. Finishes with a lingering dark spice, like the aftertaste of a garlic-heavy Italian dish (not in a bad way).

M: Excellent here: full feeling, though it keeps away from a syrupy thickness. Just chewy enough.

O: Maybe it’s my love of Dio talking, but this was one of the most satisfying Three Floyds beers I’ve had in a while. Usually I don’t like big black ale tastes (anise especially), but this has enough Three Floyds flair to counteract the norm; it’s something different from this brewer, and they nailed it.

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.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Poured into a medium sized stemmed tulip and served at 45 degrees.

Appearance: Bright orange color body with a white fluffy 2 finger head. Beautiful lacing, great carbonation and effervescence.

Aroma: Ridiculous tropical and citrus fruits, spicy rye, wheat, floral and piney hop aromas, caramel, bready malts & yeast on the back end. The aroma is so bright, strong, inviting and prevents you from putting down your glass.

Taste: Ripe and tart grapefruit, apricot, mango, orange, apple skin and lemon fruit. Spicy rye bread, zesty yeast notes, pine resin, earthy wheat elements, and mild bitter floral hops. The malts and barley are solidly represented, smooth. The malts really balance out the sweetness and the bitterness that dominate. This reminds me of 3FFF’s Dreadnaught but with rye malt added to the grist.

Mouth feel: Medium to full bodied, carbonation is perfect, drinks smoothly, fulfilling, refreshing, and almost too drinkable.

Overall: I am really impressed at how drinkable, balanced and well-crafted this is. I drank the entire bottle in less than 15 minutes and I only put the glass down once only for a refill! This is easily one of the top DIPA’s that 3Floyds brews and the best Double Rye IPA that I’ve had currently to date! I’m looking forward to getting this again! I’m positive that they will be releasing this again later this year, so do not pass this one up!

Shared 3 ways at lunch.

Slightly cloudy, orange pour. Some white head, solid retention. Strong aroma of fresh hops and rye, both prominent.

Hoppy resin and intense rye consume my palate, malt be damned! Unfortunately for them, I don't really like rye, and its abundance here is a turn off.

If rye and west coast IPAs are your thing, this is for you.

Many thanks to jisom123 for sending this bottle!

A - Pours a hazy orange/gold color with a massive billowing head and incredibly sticky lacing, carbonation is small and steady.

S - Alot of sweet, juicy, assertive and pungent fruit resin: mango, papaya, tangerine, and pineapple being the strongest aroma of the bunch. The only indication of malt anywhere in the nose is from the spicy rye and nothing else.

T - Taste follows the nose with a massive wall of resinous and oily tropical from start to finish. Up front is a massive wave of pineapple rinds, mangos, and tangerines and ends with a perfect sweet red grapefruit bitterness. The rye lends itself to a spicy, peppery character that adds to the intensity of the frutiness - lingering fruity spice. As the beer gradually warms a slight touch of caramel malt surfaces but it's buried way down there. There is some alcohol effervescence and warming as it slides down the throat.

M - Medium body, semi-dry finish, slightly oily, and with prickly carbonation.

O - For any lover of Imperial IPA/D-IPA's, this is a "fantabulous" beer and a must try before it starts fading. Thanks, jisom123!!

Thanks to Karsten for this. Very welcome in the Lone Star State.

A - poured vigorously into a tulip. Majestic. Sunset gold with slightly off-white, huge head. Carbonation is clearly evident. Really nice lacing. Can't find a fault, it's beautiful.

S - floral and sweet, citrus hops. Heavenly. I'm not getting a lot of maltiness, but I suck at picking that stuff out. It smells like heaven, honestly. That's it. Like ZD, or Lunch.

T - definitely sweet and fruity up front. There is a little spiciness in the middle of the tongue, which is followed by a nice hop bitterness. Not overpowering by any means though. The balance on this thing is amazing.

M - medium, well-carbonated, and a little oily. The bitterness sticks around for a bit but doesn't get annoying.

O - I'll admit that DIPAs are my favorite style, and the rye addition is excellent. I also didn't think Rye'd da Lightning was out of this world, so my expectations were a little low. However, it's hard for me to find a fault here. Seriously, the guys in Munster have outdone themselves. This is insanely good, and might be worth giving up a child for. Not a first-born, but one of the later ones for sure.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass. Pours a hazy yellow/gold color with a foamy head.

Very aromatic with a juiciness to the aromas of hops, Florida oranges, mangoes, and florals.

Full bodied with good depth and flavors of hops, mangoes and Florida oranges.

This was a really good DIPA. This didn't show much booze to it either and held the style really well

A: Pours a hazy cloudy orange color. Not a ton of head. Thin ring of white. Not a ton of lacing. Carbo low?

S: Well it fairly malty. I guess with a double rye IPA, that's what you get. Getting some nice hop character too: orange, citrus, pine the usual players. That rye spice is there.

T: Lots of hop bitterness on tip of tongue. The rye spice is there in the middle, along with a strong malt bill. I guess my palate was fatigued. This one is really starting to grow on me. As you drink those hop flavors come out more. Dry spicy finish. Lingering hop flavors.

M: Medium bodied.

Reviewing Rye'da Tiger from Three Floyds Brewing Company out of Munster, Indiana. HUGE thanks to Will "my name is fake" Wilberg for hooking me up with the bottle!
Score: 98

Bottle is from mid-September 2012. Served in a Founders snifter and enjoyed on 10/04/12.

Appearance: Pours a bright honey-orange color with a lot of color depth when held up to the light due its transparent quality. Can be a straight honey or orange color depending on the angle. Quite interesting! A finger of cream-colored seafoam head at pour settles to a ring around the glass. Excellent lacing and retention. I really dig the frothy head that clings to the side of the glass after every sip. What a beautiful IPA! On the second pour, there were some floaties in the glass that made this one a little less beautiful....still an excellent looking IPA though! 4.5/5

Smell: In-your-face doses of slightly candied peaches and tangerines upfront. Pineapple, orange peels, rye spice, pine, and lemon candy overlay a faint caramel malt backbone. This beer is just loaded with sweet tropical fruit juice aromas and a nice and clean, piney-hoppy counterbalance to the sweetness in the nose. Wow. Simply wow. I was not expecting something so balanced and robust! 4.75/5

Taste: Hoppy oranges, tangerines and peaches up front. This is pure tropical fruit IPA juice. There is also a nice and subtle spice kick on the front of the tongue that I presume is from the rye. The back end of the flavor of this beer is bitter, earthy hops, caramel malt and faint rye flavor. The finish is pretty bitter, but the tropical citrus sweetness really helps keep it from going to far over the edge. 4.75

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with carbonation on the heavier side of light. Super oily mouthfeel. The bitterness really layers on the tongue and makes for an interesting palate-experience when paired with the faint rye kick this beer packs. 5/5

Overall: What a world class, in-your-face IPA that is bold and unforgiving. Bitter, but dangerously smooth. The subtle rye complexity here is a real nice complement to the hoppiness. After my experience with Rye'd Da Lightning, I was not expecting something so great. Kudos to Three Floyds for creating yet another of the best hoppy beers out there!

Recommendation: Seek this out and and consume it fresh! Unless you hate IPA and hoppy beers, of course.

Pairings:Spicy, homemade beer chili (the kind that Chris Gierhart makes when you pony up to '86 the pork!).

Cost: $10 for a 22 oz (bomber) bottle.

Poured into FFF teku glass

Appearance: Looks like your typical DIPA especially one from FFF. Dark orange to copper with golden hues on the edges. Beautiful pillow like two finger head with a bone white color. Tons of carbonation is flowing up the sides of my glass.

Smell: Holy hell this smells great and very typical of a FFF DIPA offering. Up front a shit ton of tropical and citrus fruits. Grapefruit, orange peel, mango, pineapple, tangerine and some lemon zest. I am definitely picking up some of the spice from the rye at the back end but the nose is dominated by FFF signature hop notes.

Taste: Damn this is a fine DIPA with a twist. Sweet caramel and citrus with orange peel, and the others as noted in the nose. A noticeable pine bitterness at the back end and throughout the swallow with a drying finish. The rye is present with a notable spice also throughout the palate.

Mouthfeel: This has a medium body and a higher amount of carbonation. It's creamy and spicy at the same time and somewhat sticky.

Overall: Well FFF does it again! I really liked this offering from them and it most definitely has their signature all over it!

Enjoyed on tap at FFF. Served in a half pint.

A: Pours a clear golden yellow color with some amber hues. A fluffy white head recedes to a thin ring and leaves sticky sheets of lace behind.

S: Some rye earthiness and spiciness with a dash of fruity hops. Some nice citrus with grapefruits and oranges with a dash of sticky strawberry jam.

T: The taste is very much like the nose. Spicy rye with some citrus and sticky berry hops profiles. There is a touch of bitterness in the finsh as well.

M: Medium bodied with a sticky and oily mouthfeel. Medium carbonation with a bitter finish.

O: I definitely enjoyed this guy, but I found Rye'da Lightning a far superiour beer. I think it lost some of its drinkability with the imperializing of it. A good beer that I would like to have again, though.

The appearance is above average for the style: fine lacing, bright white head and red amber color which is transparent. There is some sediment at the bottom of the bottle that produces fish food in the glass.

The nose is excellent. There is predominantly tropical and citrus aromas from the hops and spicy malt from the rye. As the brew warms, the nose is dominated by the malt (both spicy and sweet) and alcohol.

The taste is rather average for a rye pale ale. I detect spicy malt and some bittering hops, but the alcohol bite cuts through. The alcohol disrupts the nice balance between the malt backbone and hops.

The feel is medium and provides some oily notes.

I am a big fan of Rye'd da Lightning, so I was excited to try this double version. If this brew can be made such that the alcohol does not push its way through the taste, then I'd give it a higher overall score. I think fans of Lightening should give this a try. However, this won't be a repeat buy for me.

A bit of rye near the end. Some earthy hops and a touch of onion. Finishes a bit sweet and a bit dry. Not overpowering in the hop bitterness at all, but they are there.

M: Fuller body, average carbonation. Feels fairly smooth.

This poured out as a slightly hazy copper color, a nice sized sticky white head on top too. The lacing was pretty strong on this beer. The smell of the beer to me is a little funky, it's hoppy but it also has a minimal twang to it that is a bit off to me. The taste of the beer is big, it's got lots of hops, good malt base and solid bitter spicy finish. The mouthfeel of the beer is medium bodied, nice carbonated and oily. Overall it was a fun beer to have.

Thanks lurchingbeast!

Pours a very hazy mango color with good head, retention and lacing. Juicy, tropical fruit aroma with somewhat sulfur-y notes. Tastes juicy, bitter, and flavorfully hop forward. I am pretty sure I wouldn't be able to identify rye if I drink this blind. Mouthfeel is medium, finishes clean and crisp with high carbonation. Has FFF written all over it.
