Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a stunning light red, head has decent retention and leaves thick rings of lacing.
Smells of citric hops, caramel, and rye.
Taste: Heavy grapefruit and pine from the hops, caramel is present but isn't quite as prevalent as in the nose. The rye malt is present throughout and blends with the hop bitterness very nicely.
Feels light/medium bodied, a bit slick with the hop resin. Smooth. Despite the bitterness, this is very drinkable.
Overall: So this is a rye beer? What a treat. Another excellent beer from Founders.
Serving type: bottle
