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

zach8270 (3219) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2013
(bottle - 22 oz) Cloudy orange pour with a fizzy white head. Lots of sweetness and citrus in the aroma with a good amount of pine resin and rye dryness under it. Flavor is really nice. Tons of citrus at the start with a bitter and sticky pine hop middle. Lots of fruit and rye dryness and bitterness at the finish. Really smooth and easy to drink.

TheEpeeist (3180) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2013
22 oz bottle. Foggy orange brown with a whitish head. Nose is orange peel, musk, caramel and rye. Medium to full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a crisp tingle. Taste is somewhere between orange and grapefruit, nectarine sweetness, toffee and rye finishing a bit spicy. Vodka creeps in as it warms.

Vaiz (3148) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle @ ABCBeers, Dean’s scared of beer tasting. Hazy deep golden pour, white head. Aroma is fruity, grapefruit, peach, pine and floral. Flavor is bitter and very fruity with loads of hops, balanced by a thick malty sweet backbone. Great brew.

HonkeyBra (3113) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Draft on tap at the Brew pub and at home in a 22 oz bomber. Orange pour with a small sticky white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pineapple, marichino cherries, orange peel and pine. Mild earth and cookie dough notes as well. Flavor is very bitter, with nice tropical and citrus fruit hops, bits of pineapple and mango in there as well. Mild spiciness from the rye comes out, albeit subtle. On the heavier side of medium bodied, finishes bitter with some strong rye notes. Nice.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Pours hazy golden-yellow with a short white head. Aroma of rye, grapefruit peel. Taste is a rye malt, citrus hops. Deep, rich rye flavour over a well balanced hoppiness. Very enjoyable.

tiong (3073) - 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.

sunevdj (3072) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle at Mikkeller and Friend’s Grand Opening. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Sweet and very bitter. Lots of hops aromas. Floral and sprucy hops profile with hints of plant sap. Soft carbonation. Medium bodied. Dry finish. Good.

PhillyCraft (2850) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle. Hazy orange pour with medium off white head accompanied by nice lacing patterns. Aromas and flavor are super juiced out yo. Notes of dank pine, grapefruit, tropical citrus, orange juice, rye, and caramel. Perfect amount of malt in this beast....the hops were able to be showcased but still had a balanced, creamy finish. Booze is barely present. Medium body. Favorite of the night. Dio has rocked for a long, long, time.

zvikar (2835) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks DSG. Pours yellow to brown with a nice head, aroma of lemon, honey, flowers, flavor of rye, pineapple, malt sweet and dry, medium to full bodied

BOLTZ7555 (2706) - 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!
