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

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.

Pours a nice darker orageish golden color with white head. Rye spice, pine, citrus, and some grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. The rye really comes through on the finish, nice spice to a DIPA.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2012 New bobmber from the brew pub, released last week. They say this is the double version of Rye’d da Lightning, and to think of Dio while drinking. Pours a bright opaque sunset orange. Aromas of the signature Three Floyds citrius hops - Pineapple, apricot, and mango. The taste is pretty similar but you finally get a bit of the rye in there. I really think the rye is a bit toned down compare to the Lightning version, although when I tried the Lightning, it was a few weeks old so the citrius notes may have quieted down a bit. A really good DIPA, I would say this is basically a rye version of dreadnught.

650 ml bottle courtesy of queenholly. Thanks Rebekah. Pours a cloudy orange-ish color with a small white head that slowly recedes to a film. The aroma is medium in strength vegetables and cat piss. Cant say that I really dug the aroma too much. The taste, unlike the aroma, is a masterpiece--I get rye grains, apricots, melons, mild spices, oranges and perhaps some sweetened grapefruit. The palate is full and silky smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long with lingering spicy hops. Overall: Decent DIPA, a bit like Alpine Nelson on steroids.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Pours cloudy orange amber with a 3 finger, chunky off white head and high effervescence. Aroma is huge on citrus, tropical fruit and floral hops, some pine, biscuit, a little caramel and spiciness that could be hops, rye, or a combination of the two. Big tropical fruit, citrus, pine and spicy hops, biscuit, toast, cereal and twiggy pine. medium to heavy body, light carbonation, and a creamy to chewy feel. Fantastic stuff.

AWISLguy (2270) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bomber from Sendiks in Brookfield. Pours an unclear orangey-copper with a bit of a foamy white head. Terrific lacing. Aroma is citrus, citrus and more citrus. Some grain and some spiciness as well. Taste is of sweet caramel, cereal, fresh sweet fruits and grapefruit. Somewhat resinous. Much more balanced than the nose. A bit rough with some alcohol presence. A definitive hop bomb and very tasty! Finishes bitter and quite dry with, what I would say is "the rye", kicking in. Three Floyds comes through again!

portableparty (2263) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2013
bottle from arkurzynski. Pours unclear orange with a frothy white head that dissipates to a soapy film and collar. Aroma is bright grapefruit pine and subtle melon and bread/malt. Taste bitter rye bread resinous pine grapefruit some spruce and rind. Palate is medium and finishes chalky dry. This is what I was in the mood for a good bitter IIPA. Thanks Adam!

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 This was really quite good. Big hops, piney and citrus, enough malty to back it up. Dry finish and spicy taste and finish from the rye. Serving: Bottle

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Nose is piney and citrusy hops and a slight metallic twinge. Taste is more focused on the citrusy hops with a hint of more English style hops. Rye isn't as prominent as I hoped but still very tasty. Palate is perfect. Soft and full. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
