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

BBB63 (6507) - 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.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with no head. The aroma is strong floral hop and pine. Medium mouth, nice dry hop and rye flavor, lingering bitterness, very impressive.

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.

jmgreenuk (5978) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle at the DISOB tasting, Den Haag. Poured a slightly hazy amber with a thin tan head. The aroma is rich fruity and a shade alcoholic. The flavour is medium to strong bitter, rich liquorice, fruit and a lovely lingering warm rich bitterness in the finish. A super beer and well worth the rating.

Bottle shared by nuplastikk. Thanks! Poured a clear orange-yellow color with a small, wispy head. Aroma was some tropical fruits, solid malt backing to this one. Flavor was notes of toffee, malt, resin hop character.

Bottle, thanks to Scopey! The pour’s light amber with a small head. The nose is grain, breash grass, orange peel and rough tropical undergrowth. Fruit salad sweetness. The taste is big tropical fruit salad - papaya and mango. Pineapple. Sticky sweet. Nice malt body cut by a sharp bitter finish. Fresh. Big body, awesome. Overall, a nice, hot & sweet DIPA.
