Remember Rye’da Lightning? This is its double. Think of Ronnie James Dio while you enjoy this double Rye IPA.

Iphonephan (2654) - McLean, Virginia, USA - MAY 3, 2013
From a 22 oz bottle shared in South Bend IN. Pours a hazy gold with an off white head. Grassy aroma. Flavors of light toffee and strong grassy hops. Tasty.

NachlamSie (2646) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Bomber at Sergio’s World beers. This is not as hoppy as I would expect from FFF, but not to say it’s not hoppy. There is hugely assertive rye in the aroma with accents of citrusy hops. Palate is fairly sticky with spicy rye and an even wash of hops. I can’t believe the restraint of bitterness, relatively speaking.

queenholly (2611) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle. Orange/tropical fruit, bready rye malt, and caramel aroma. Cloudy orange amber with a small off-white head. Orange peel, bready and spicy rye malt, and sweet mango flavor. Full sticky body, moderate carbonation. Not a bad choice for my 50th DIPA.

bytemesis (2568) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle - thanks Jeremiah! Pour hazy golden amber with a large creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. A lot of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is wonderful grapefruit, a bit of pine. Flavor is about the same, plus a noticeable spiciness from the rye. Lightly sweet, light to medium bitter. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice beer.

MIBRomeo (2492) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Hazy off orange pour w/ a thick tall well laced white head densly made up of little bubbles and dissapates into some soapy looking head. Aroma is first a big hit of citrus and fruity hop aromas. Then some sweet caramel a hint of rye comes through lightly then gets covered up by a second wave of grassy hops. Palate is rich and lightly creamy. Flavor is subtly sweet on the front some of that is probably from the Rye as well with a resinous slightly piney finish a lingering bitterness is light and balances the malty front end. Loads of piney hops in the aftertaste, not much of the fruitiness in the front that I liked so much in the nose. Thoroughly enjoyable, but lacking a bit of balance that some maturity might give it.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bomber shared with friends. Big ole stickin’ hops in this bad boy. Right up in your face from the second you crack open the bottle. Nice floral hints with just a tad bit of citrus/grapefruit. Very enjoyable.

pineypower (2402) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle shared thanks to Dave. Pours an attractive amber color with a white head. Aroma is of citrusy/pine hops, light grainy rye and a touch of caramel. Taste of nice resiny pine/citrus hops, sweet grainy rye notes, light toast and another solid dose of bitterness on the finish. RIP Dio......solid beer.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 21, 2012
22oz bottle from a BA trader. Cloudy amber/orange with a thick, off white head. Aroma of citrus, bubble gum, flowers and caramel. Flavor is bitter hops, sweet caramel malt and some spicy rye. Medium body with a thick mouth feel. Really great beer, the rye adds a touch of spice and a really nice mouth feel.
