look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Red-amber, good head.

Smell: Big grapefruit aroma.

Taste: Dry grapefruit bitterness is the main thrust of this beer, a hint of rye peeks through at times.

Drinkability: Tastes like an IPA, drinks like an IPA.

Picked up a single to try this, as Founders makes some excellent beers. Not as much rye flavor as I was expecting, this reminded me more of a IPA that was shifted to the bitter side. Hopefully someday I can try their Black Rye.
