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.

Damico (2473) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Pours pretty thick orang sunrise with a creamy tan head. Aroma is juicy, lemons and rye spice. Hops may have faded a bit, but they are present bringing some tang and citrus and then the rye bready flavor comes in on a full, thicker body.

Bottled. Pours clear amber with a medium sized, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit and piney notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and solid bitter. Medium bodied, oily text. and soft carb. A great DIPA.

Bottle thnx to budznudz! Cheers Chris! Pours a beautiful darker orange pour with a beautiful small white head. Nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is of pineapple, peach and mango. Very floral hoppy influences. Flavour is mildly bitter with a typical grainy sweet backbone. I think the rye is present in the flavour, but not sure if that’s it. Drinks very easy, nice in balanced and an overall great beer!

superspak (2443) - Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2012
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.

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.

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.

22 oz bomber courtesy of Todd. Pours a cloudy orange vistilite with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of fresh orange citrus, rye, bitter hops and bread malts. Taste of fresh orange citrus, grapefruit, bitter hops and rye bread. Another gem from 3 FFFs.

Really loved this beer. Tons of great citrus hops and a spicy rye element are balanced with a solid malt backbone and a great bitter finish that doesnt linger too long. Love it.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks DSG. Hazy amber with white head. Hoppy aroma: pine, purple and blue, a little soapy. Very bitter, hoppy, a little dry and juicy - almost fruit juice in the end. Medium body, hoppy-bitter finish, mildly carbonated.
