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

22 ounce bottle. Lots of carbonation in pour. Urine like aroma. Big bitterness and high alpha hops. Pretty intense and bold. Slight malty character.

BBB63 (6557) - 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.

tiong (6487) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2013
650ml bottle @ Super IPA tasting from Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen

Pours dark orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of sweet malty notes, caramel, stingy hops, fruits, toffee and citrus. Taste is malty, hoppy and fruity with hints of rye, grass, lemon, caramel and toffee. Finish is malty, sweetish and hoppy with floral notes and hints of grass and lemon. Quite balanced, malty, sweetish and hoppy DIPA with a nice touch of rye.

Beerman6686 (6380) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2012
This poured a darker orange to red color with a beige head. Aroma was fruity tropical hops, and rye, booze and caramel. Flavor was much the same, good balance of fruity hops and malt, not over the top bitter, booze is a little hotter than I would have liked but still a pretty solid beer.

AirForceHops (6301) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 29, 2014
22 oz. bottle. Mostly clear amber with strong retention. Aroma has a decent amount of fruit. Orange zest, lemons, tropical fruit and underlying rye. Nice!

Flavor has a light rye base with traces of grass and the same fruitiness that is found in the aroma. The body is a little on the thin side and is lacking in body. Not what I was expecting in that department. Some light alpha acid and has an oily mouthfeel. Some bready biscuit malt to help balance this beast. Overall pretty good.

Iphonephan (6256) - McLean/Jackson Hole, Virginia, USA - MAY 3, 2013
From a 22 oz bottle shared in South Bend IN. Pours a hazy gold with an off white head. Grassy aroma. Flavors of light toffee and strong grassy hops. Tasty.

egajdzis (6134) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Lightly hazy, orange gold color with a small, creamy, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of orange, citrus fruits, pine, light tropical fruits. Seemingly typical 3F aroma that I hadn’t had in a while. Taste of citrus, pine resin, tropical and some citrus fruits, with orange, and grapefruit bitterness in the finish. My only complaint is that I wish it were fresher. Still, very nice.
