This ale pours a deep mahogany color with a very small Head that lasts just a minute or so. The aroma is all rye, malt, and spice. There is little to no hint of hops or of the ipa qualities of this beer. It's Sips dry and a little rough with a bit of alcohol bite on the tail end. The body is a bit thin for this type of ale. The flavor is definitely rye and a lot of malt. Almost more like a porter than an ipa. There is virtually no hoppiness at all. Overall this is a very good beer (still rarely disappointed by Founders). It's just not what I expect from a rye ipa. Hits on the rye notes but not on the ipa ones.
