look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured a glowing murky orange with a one finger bright white head. Oh wait, I see chunkc floating around, big ones.

S : Huge tropical citrus and fruit notes with some slight pine in the background. The rye was light on he nose

T: Intial rye preys on the taste buds, Some grapefruit, pineapple and some pine follow. The rye spices things up a bit midtaste but not to overpower the truckload of hops providing more tropical fruits and sweetness. It finishes dry with a strong tropical fruit backbone. Some slight rye also fades away in the background of the finish.

M: Full bodied IIPA, well carbonated, dry, lingering sweetness with bombs of fruitiness andsubtle pine

O: Very good, no major complaints. I wanted a little more rye though.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a touch of hazy candy orange body with a light beige thick head of cream and the body is a snow globe of jetsam. There is a gentle microcarbonation pushing to the surface.

S- The green floral hops is big and bright.

T- The full flavor of unripe fruit hops has some bright green hops in the finish with an alcohol spice in the finish. Three is a woody green hop and rye flavor that lingers and grows in the finish as the beer opens.

M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a gentle fizz and an alcohol warmth on the exhale.

O- This is a nice full hop beer that brings rye and alcohol heat up to the hop level.

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.

bottle picked up not hat long ago when i was visiting the FFF area. had a pint of this on tap at the brewpub, but this review is for the bottle i picked up in town. enjoyed from a FFF teku.

a - brew poured a deep murky orange with a thin off white head of tiny bubbles. visible carbonation could be seen rising to the surface of the glass from the bottom. when held to the light, the brew was semi transparent.

s - much more hoppy and tropical citrus than i remembered when i had it on tap at the brew pub. has a nice glazing of rye coming in strong on the nose as well. i remember thinking that this one didn't hold a candle to rye'da lightning when i had it on tap, but this bottle seems to have a really fresh tropical vibe going on.

t - the flavor comes in big with rye leading the way trailed by a really nice citric hop and subtle bittering on the finish.

m - soft and a bit light bodied. doesn't pack much of a punch. a bit watery even.

o - overall, not as wonderful as rye'da lightning, but still worth seeking out. FFF does a really great job with a rye beer.

Bottle opened on 9.30.12. Thanks bstyle.

A - Pours a very cloudy, dark orange with a small light tan head that slowly fades to a film.

S - Heavy citrus, oranges, mango, sweet rye tones.

T - A sweet orange and rye hop explosion, fruity.

D - Sticky sweet with a lower carbonation and medium body.

O - Wonderfully sweet and hoppy. Very nice indeed.

This was my favorite new beer of the Super Bowl Party this year. Drank after a Zombie Dust. Remarkably similar beer, just of greater degrees of ingredients (more, rye). But anyways, this is supposed to be about the appearance first, so without further ado:

Poured out a hearty orange liquid, 1" off white head, looks professional quality. Aroma, big time amarillo, citra and simcoe I would guess, its delicious for sure.

Taste, damn, three floyds can make some damn good hoppy beers. Alcohol warming, but not providing a negative flavor component. Hops are bright and shiny. Plenty of citrusness to it, tangerine I think is the biggest one, it isn't big and tropical fruit, this is sweet orange and tangerine. Rye is barely perceptible, which is fine by me. Pretty dry mouthfeel. What FFF does so well is make their beer hoppy, but you never get the bitterness unaccompanied by other flavors. This is hop flavor all the way with little in terms of that copper penny bitterness and nothing else that so many shortcutting brewers seem to be all about (high alpha acid, thin crystal malt = ugh more often than not).

From trade. Pours cloudy yellowish orange with a big fluffy white head. Stuffed up right now, but getting some orange zest, lemon, and grapefruit. Not a whole lot of smell here. Big up front bitter, some citrus. Not a lot going on, and I don’t pick up much rye in aroma or taste. Medium mouthfeel with medium high carbonation. Honestly this is pretty bland. Not a bad beer, but expected more from FFF. This seems to have a similar profile to Panzer Wolf, which I also found to be bland. Just give me the Dreadnaught

A: Pours a cloudy apricot yellow/orange with a half a finger of pure white head. The foam settles really quickly, leaving only a rocky ring along the edges of the glass.

S: The nose is malt, spice, floral hops, and stinky cheese. This beer smells awesome. Honestly. Amazing nose.

T: It starts out malty and sweet, but shifts quickly to big time rye spice. I get rye, yeast, onion, rose hips, and orange in the middle. As it progresses the spice and hops dominate. The finish is drying, but syrupy. Hard to explain.

M: Full bodied beer. It's sweet and coating to start, spicy and citrus hopped in the middle, syrupy and spicy in the back end.

O: Good beer. Not the best. I love rye beers, and this is nice, but I have had better. The finish is too sticky and the onion notes are not my thing. I'm happy to have tried this, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get it again.
