Had this one at the Brick Store Pub in downtown Decatur. The hops is masked a bit too much at first sip; however I did pick up the customary IPA bitterness at the end. There was a tad too much rye on the front end and not a sufficient amount of hop bitterness for my taste. I enjoy all the other Founders brews, but have to put this one at the back of the bus. Having said that, while I would never go out of the way to pick up a six pack or growler, I would certainly order it at one of our Atlanta area beer bars if the other draught offerings were sub-par.

Damn, this is just a good beer. It's not the most complex but it's expertly crafted.
Ruby colored with a tall white head. Great retention, tons of lacing, looks fantastic.
Aroma is straight up grapefruit and pine, and lots if it.
Flavor keeps the grapefruit and pine but adds in a whole bunch of spice from the rye. Awesome combo.
Medium bodied and oh-so-easy to drink. Would pair great with some spicy food but big enough to standout on its own. Highly recommended.
