look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

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.

Rye'd Da Lightning was spectacular so I was very excited to hear that this would be bottled. This beer pours a light to medium bodied, very cloudy dark burnt orange in color with a two finger soapy head. The nose is citrusy and dry. It has moderate bitterness and also a pretty prevalent Simcoe aspect as well. There is also a touch of alcohol present. The flavors feature slightly sweet malt and citrusy hops upfront. Its also a little soapy. I don't get much rye or spicy characteristics at all. It then changes to that trademark Simcoe quality with a good amount of alcohol. The amount of alcohol present really keeps this one from being well balanced. Overall this is a decent DIPA but not in the Dreadnaught, Arctic Panzer category and I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as Rye'd Da Lightning.

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.
