12 oz bottle without a freshness date. Pours a slightly hazy light copper color with a bit of a reddish tint. Foam is thick, creamy and long-lasting and the lacing is plentiful. A very nice looking beer.
Smell is nearly heavenly with ample amounts of bright citric hops and spicy rye notes. There are some caramel and toasty malts in the background, but the hops and rye are the main attraction.
This beer does a great job of showcasing both hop flavor and bitterness. Floral, grassy and grapefruit hoppiness play nicely with the zesty, pepper and bread-loaf rye flavors. There is a touch of sweetness in there to help smooth things out a bit. The mouthfeel and body on the beer are just about right for the style and I'll be damned if Red's Rye is not far from chuggable. Drinkability is through the roof. I dont think I could ever get sick of drinking this brew and am very sad this is the last of a six pack I got for Christmas...thanks Dad! Unbelievable beer, great job (as usual) Founders.

Bottled 08/13/13 at 50 degrees into regular pint glass
Aroma of pine and rye
Head average (3 cm), creamy, off white, slowly diminishing
Lacing good, multiple rings > 1 cm wide with mostly small bubbles
Body medium amber, clear
Flavor begins spicy with a hint of hop pineness, slowly fades to a slight bitterness; no alcohol, no malt, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, slightly oily, carbonation soft.
Evan though this is 8 months old, it is still flavorable, with the rye predominating. The reduced presence of hops could be because of the age of the beer.
