12oz. bottle thanks to nflmvp

Pours a very hazy reddish-brown with a mountainous tan head that breaks the plane of the glass, but eventually thins. Thick, sticky lacing on the glass. Some thick brown yeast floating on top of the head. Contaminated?

Smell is funky yeast. I suspect that this bottle has been compromised.

Taste is all funky yeast with a very sour hop flavor. Definite contamination.

Very disappointed that my first experience of this beer was a contaminated bottle. It has definitely been plagued by the grand funk of death.

This beer pours a clear copper with no head or lace. The aroma is mainly grapefruit with caramel in the background. The flavor is pure hop bitterness which completely overpowers the palate. It's mouthfeel is light-medium and leaves a strong, bitter aftertaste. Founders Reds Rye PA is a disappointing, one-dimensional beer. Not recommended.
