Sucks I have to preface this in every review, but whatever, I'm colorblind. To me it appears hazy golden. But please seek other reviews than mine for appearance.

Smell is bitter, pearish, definitely rye.

Taste is more of the same. A hard bitter intro that gives way to a quick malty/rye backdrop, followed by a thinning, lingering bitterness. Citrus is there, as are light apricot and faint bitter green apple notes. In my opinion more of a rye IPA than a pale. But it's divine, one of Founder's best -- much better than Centennial, which is still very good.

Had this one with a mushroom reuben, and it worked wonderfully. The carbonation is so-so, as is the head, a little less than one finger, but the malt, hops and rye work in wonderful harmony here.

While everyone else is caught up in the CBS chaos, I'll happily stick to Red's Rye, if and when, because I always do, need my Founder's fix.
