Just getting into IPAs and this one is right up my alley. Very floral nose of hops. A light-colored, non-hazy beer. Easy on the tongue with a bit of stronger hops in the aftertaste. But the sweetness of the hops calms it down before overwhelming my tastebuds. I would definitely order or buy again.

Pour cloudy yellow orange with a small puffed up white head. Slight lacing down the glass.

Aroma is sharp rye notes, citrus and pine. A bit of grapefruit zest and bread in the background.

Big grapefruit rind and other citrus flavor up front. A little earthy and bready before finishing with a rye-resin 1-2 punch.

Medium body and carbonation. Finishes pretty bitter.

Not too bad, but the flavors were a bit muddled. I enjoyed Rye da Lightning more. The extra hops seemed to overwhelm the rye to provide more flavor harshness and less of the wonderful citrus explosion with a hint of rye of its little brother.

From 01/25/12 notes. Brought this back from Chicago a few days ago, bought it from the store around the corner from Hopleaf for $13.99. 22 oz. bottle poured into my Bell's tulip.

a - Pours a hazy yellow-orange color with one finger of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of rye, citrus hops , tropical fruits, fruity malts, grapefruit, mangos, floral hops, some bready malts. Rye is prevalent in the nose, but a ton of tropical fruits and citrus hops as well. Really nice.

t - Tastes of grapefruit, citrus hops, fruity malts, rye, tropical fruits, lemon, floral hops, earthy notes, and some pineapple. More citrus here and less rye, but still very hoppy and awesome. Taste has some moderate bitterness to it, but not too much considering the ABV.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Some moderate bitterness bite in the mouthfeel.

o - Overall a really nice rye DIPA. Rye is up there in the nose and lots of citrus and tropical fruits throughout. Would definitely have it again.

22oz bottle into a tulip.

A: Pours a translucent brass with a puffy white head. Great retention.

S: Resinous pineapple, clementine, and grass aromas pop out immediately, followed by some sweet crystal malt.

T: Oily, piney bitterness, lactose-like sweetness, mango and grapefruit, more pine, lightly spicy rye, floral. Dank.

M: Medium-bodied with active carbonation.

O: The use of NZ hops in this beer is fantastic - very resinous and fruity. Could have used a bit more rye but perhaps it was covered up by the hop spiciness.

Half pint at FFF

A - slightly hazy light orange brown in color with a nice clean white head. nice head retention with fine sticky lacing.

S - tons of citrus, grapefruit, orange peel, a touch of rye and maybe pepper.

T - more citrus than even in the aroma, huge grapefruit and orange, maybe a touch of pineapple. a slight biscuit taste with a bit of spice near the finish?

M - carbonation is just right, slightly creamy with a medium body, there is a slight bitter aftertaste.

O - I liked this beer. My impression is its a slightly less balanced Dreadnaught, to the hoppy side with the bit of spice. Would have liked to get more than 1 bottle when I bought it. Will just have to enjoy it again on tap at FFF.

Poured into a snifter

Appearance: Transparent somewhat deep honey orange with a one finger white head. Also, two thick ring lacing's.

Aroma: Juicy grapefruit, apricot, mango, and a little pineapple. Floral. Some spicy rye.

Taste: Very similar to the the smell. Grapefruit, apricot, and mango. Some spicy hops. Rye and its spiciness throughout. Some malty sweetness. Rye and hops in the aftertaste. Some alcohol warming.

Mouthfeel: Slightly over median bodied and median carbonation. A little sticky. Hops bitterness is actually light but lingers for five minutes at the most. Finish is slightly dry.

Overall: I really enjoy this beer but would enjoy it more if it had more rye. If it had more rye, I would give taste a five. I consumed this beer well over an hour. Like most beers, it gets better as it warms, especially the rye. I would definitely have this again.
