On tap at Strong Ale.

A: Effulgent orange with no clarity though a nice color. Big frothy white head.

S: Strong pine resin with lots of orange and grapefruit rind and flesh. Pungent hop presence with a bit of bread and biscuit.

T: Juicy orange and grapefruit with notes of biscuit and rye that provide a solid foundation for the hop expression. Huge hop flavor with a smooth lower moderate bitterness. Very well hidden alcohol.

M: Medium body with upper medium carbonation.

Overall: Toward the balanced end of the Double IPA spectrum but still very nice. Well done.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating but was purchased recently. Pours extremely hazy orange amber color with a very nice 2-3 finger dense off white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of huge mango, pineapple, grapefruit, orange zest, caramel, rye spiciness, pine, floral, herbal, and citrus rind. Fantastic aromas with great balance of hop complexity and rye malts. Taste of pineapple, mango, grapefruit, orange zest, caramel, spicy rye, light pine, bread, floral, citrus rind, earthiness, and herbal spiciness. Good amount of earthy citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, mango, grapefruit, orange zest, caramel, bread, pine, floral, rye spiciness, citrus rind, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a very nice balance with the rye spiciness; zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy, sticky, and slightly crisp mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic imperial Rye IPA! Great hop flavor complexity and malt balance with the rye; very smooth and easy to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering as expected.

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.
