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

Habanero (3430) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2014
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.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2013
22oz bottle although had previous times before at the brewpub from prior visits... Pour from the bottle yields a mostly solid non-transparent orangey brown consistency and topped with a fluffy lingering barely off-white head... Aroma of juicy semi-bitter tropical fruit and pithy citrus components. A hint of metallic surfaces before fading out completely which was reassuring - that an an intermixing of fruit cocktail comes to mind. A blast of pine and general dank undertones evolve late and lingers on for a bit. That note of metallic eventually comes back into the equation which was for the most part a letdown... Flavors follow suit mostly with semi-sweet juicy tropical fruit hops front and center quickly turning assertively bitter mid-palate and extending on through the finish. Just above medium bodied, somewhat full, with the right dash of carbonation. Some hints of aspirin through the middle. Malt seem to fall to the wayside but there is a spicy quality to it from the rye persuasion most likely...all in all, prob prefer the lightning more so than the tiger. A little too much firepower for me while the lightning had more of a drinkability aspect to it with a the hop assertiveness that I really enjoy.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a crystal clear, golden colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit citruses and pines with a bit of a juicy sweetness. Floral tropical fruits, some rye spice, and a light bready pale malt sweetness. Flavor is similar. Big grapefruit pines, juicy resins, floral tropical fruits, and a nice rye spice and lightly sweetened malt backing with some caramel notes. Finishes dry, citrusy, and moderately bitter with a nice rye spice and slight caramel. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a really solid DIPA. Tons of fresh, bitter, juicy, citruses with a nice rye spice and light caramel sweetness. Nice one.

VsXsV (3115) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle. Hazy deep orange liquid with medium to big off-white head. Aroma of citrus, lemon peel, grain, white pepper, pine, biscuit and herbal hops. Taste is dry and medium to high bitter with notes of citrus, pepper, lemon peel, biscuit and bread. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice stuff.

Huhzubendah (3089) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 24, 2012
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.

NachlamSie (3060) - 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.

Damico (3000) - 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.

BOLTZ7555 (2999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Another gem. 24-karat pour with hints of crimson, scarlet, and tangerine topped with an ivory foam. Candied orange, mango, papaya and guava accompanied honey-baked biscuit and spicy black pepper. Think of citrus jam spread generously across toasted marbled-rye bread. Tasty...the breakfast of champions!

Reynolds314 (2977) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 17, 2013
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.

Ktwse (2952) - SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2013
Bomber from Mikkeller & Friends. Pours pretty much clear light amber with thick white head, nothing special so far. Take a sniff, however, and that changes. Lovely aroma of light pine, floral, heaps of tropical fruit, light caramel. Taste is sweet with a light hoppy bitter backbone. Lingering resin hoppy finish. Body is medium with soft carbonation. Not entirely sold... A very good beer, for sure, but had kind of expected more, especially after having been introduced to Alpha King, Dreadnaught and the brilliant Zombie Dust this weekend.
