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

lusikka (6738) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2013
650 ml bottle.
Pours a dark copper golden colour with a white head. Aroma of rye, bread, biscuity malts and grass. Flavour of rye, biscuity malts, grassy hops, strong citrus, floral notes and some caramel. Medium bodied, thick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes sticky, floral, bitter and a bit musty. A bit musty because of rye, but the hop profile is still excellent. Great.

Shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma has big citrus and fruity hops, herbal notes and spicy rye. The combination is very nice. The flavor has citrus and some tropical fruit notes, herbal, spicy rye with some back ground sweet caramel malt character. Medium plus bodied with moderate bitterness. Very solid all around. I want more.

BBB63 (6346) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Bottle and served in tulip: Pours a deep golden hue but with a ton of floaties which was not expected, lasting frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma and lots of rye notes along with resiny, piney, and lightly citric hop esters. Pepper and clove with a touch of caramel and Melanoidin malts. Great nose on this beer. The taste is spruce, pepper, grapefruit, clove and rye bread over a layer of biscuit and aspirin... not sure what to make of it but strangely I like it. The mouth feel is more medicinal and chalky note and a tad boozy. The least favorite part of this brew. I like many things brought to the table but still feel something does not quite mesh together. Muddled and astringent as hell.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Fiery amber, hazy, thin to moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Pale sweet citrusy and fruity nose, hoppy too.   Semi-sweet citrus and pith on the tongue.   I thought it would be more floral or fragrant, but seems fairly average.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Sweet pith and citrus peel on the finish.   Doesn’t seem like an IIPA, perhaps a bigger IPA, but its not overly hopped or on the malty side.   Well crafted, but to me, very much middle of the road.   Thanks to fatknitty for the bottle!

Bomber to snifter (thanks jmborggren). Looks good; a hazy orange with white lacing. Smells GOOD; HOPPY!!! Tastes like it smells with that nice rye tingle on the back end of the finish. A first-class DIPA!

TheAlum (6119) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Munster, IN). Had this on draft while stopping down for gas and a new barrel aged offering on sale. Excited for this one after the success of it’s little brother in my book. Pours a well hazed orange amber hue, some deeper clear orange sunset edges and bottom strike well, the body more hazed, with a cakey offwhite head atop as a firm yet smaller layer. Aromas are richer bitter fruit hops of melon and grapefruit, white grape and florals. Gumball, oranges, dancing in and out with sweeter tropical fruit aromas. Some rye, bready malts, and grainy malts but this is a melange of hop flavor in the nose. Touches of grass, pineapple, and lemons waft in. Initial is medium bodied, giving just a girth with an incredibly rich bitter hop flavor up front. Fresh and vibrant, this beer preaches fruity hops, florals, melon and grapefruit up front. Straight grapefruit juice, pine, florals. Touches of tropical fruit are more mellow than the nose. Pine, lemon, grass and florals bring a nice strong resiny bitterness. Middle is bitter and grapefruit citrus. Pine and florals, dry and bitter. Touches of bread, fruit, and cereal malts. More fruity melon, kiss of gumball, white grape and tangerine. Moving into the backend this one offers firm bitterness, citrus, tons of grapefruit. A gentle kiss of heat at times, but what could be just strong bitter rich hop oils lingering on the palate. Fruit, gumball, oranges, and florals. Grapefruit juice, as the fruit and strong citrus flavors really stay throughout this one. I haven’t loved a lot of FFF’s new IPAs/DIPAs lately, but this one is a winner. Remiscent of Rye’d Da Lightning, but stronger, more intense, richer hop flavors. Fresh and vibrant, good bitter dryness. Very nice beer here. Get at it soon, the fresher the better I’d think.
