Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Half Acre tulip.

A- pours a dark golden with a 2" off white head. Big trails and clumps of lacing remain on the glass.

S- wow! Huge citrus (Citra hops?) aromas-pineapple, grapefruit, orange. Some spice from the rye is here also.

T- sweet caramel and spicy rye, again big citrus as the nose. Nice amount of bitter pine and citrus rind.

M- medium body and carbonation. Really creamy with smooth finish.

O- awesome beer! Very similar to rye'd da lightning (no surprise) with a bigger mouthfeel and I think more citrus in the aroma and taste.

Picked up @ the source

Pours a murky orange/yellow with an inch of white head. Lots of legs clinging here.

The nose is a hoppy explosion to say the least. Sharp citus notes with earthy rye are the dominant scents here.

The taste follows suite. Big bitter hops involving a whirl of tropical fruits with an earthy and spicy rye flavor. Bitter and hoppy with a light malt backbone. The ABV is not really noticeable but there is a bit of booziness as it warms.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with sharp carbonation. A bit sticky.

Overall, great hop bomb from the Floyds. I loved Lightning, and I love Tiger just as much.

A - Bright, murky orange with a one finger bright white head.

S - Huge tropical citrus and fruit notes with some slight pine in the background. Smells like a FFF DIPA.

T - The taste follows the nose with all the FFF hops one would come to expect... Again, some grapefruit, pineapple and some pine. The spiciness of the rye comes right out of the gate, making its presence overly obvious, but it's not overpowering... The warm spice balances the sweetness. It finishes dry with a strong tropical fruit backbone. Some slight rye also fades away in the background of the finish... There are some complex ebbs and flows here.

M - The carbonation is perfect for the style. It's velvety smooth and full bodied... This is how I like my DIPAs to feel.

O - I was not in the mood for a DIPA, but I had to pick one up because I loved Rye'da Lightning. This so happens to be lightning's big brother... It's well-balanced, yet complex for a DIPA. It seems like everybody does a rye ipa these days, but IMO, FFF pulls it off the best. These guys can make a well-balanced hop-bomb, and this time they added some rye, too. It's nice... A showcase for a style that is starting to get played out.

***ABV is a mystery, but I got a bit of a buzz off just the bomber, so I'm guessing it's high... It makes me want to try Arctic Panzer Wolf to see if there are some similarities.

Enjoyed on tap at Three Floyds Brewpub. Served in a nonic half pint glass.

Dark gold with orange accents and a one finger bright white head. Huge aroma of a multitude of citrus and fruit notes and flora on the nose. The taste is consistent with the nose: juicy grapefruit, dense passionfruit, pineapple and citrus blossoms. Rye spiceness is quite evident midpalate and is essential in balancing the fruity sweetness and gigantic malt bill. Surprisingly, finishes quite dry with bitter tropical notes. Well carbonated, smooth on the palate. The heaviest malt backbone of any Three Floyds Double/Imperial IPA to date lends to a slick, full bodied mouthfeel. Fairly well-balanced and one of the more complex Double/Imperial IPA's I've had.
