Poured into a pint glass from a bottle.

A: Poured a nice amber color that was opaque. Loved the look of it with a light shining through it.

S: Not much here other than a bit of rye and citrusy hop background and some sweet malty goodness..

T: A smooth and flavorful beer with a nice hop undertone. The rye grain gives it a spiciness that really adds to this beer. And,a citrus blend in there works really well with caramel malt flavors. I wouldn't call this a complex beer necessarily, but it really melds several flavors together very well. Typical easy to drink,yet flavorful Founder's offering.

M: Oily.

O: Again, a smooth and easy to drink, yet quite flavorful IPA. The rye grain lends a spiciness to the profile that is really works well with the citrusy hops. Not the best rye ipa offering out there, but I still like it alot.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - 1 finger of head, retention is average, off-white laceing hangs in there.

Smell - Big citrusy hop aroma can smell the rye malt in the mix.

Taste - First sip was a bit strange, I let it warm up a few mintes and the taste balances out. There is a definate citrusy hop, tabacco and rye spicyness there.

Mouthfeel - Very slick almost oily with a slight alcohol warming.

Overall - Recomeded, a nice rye beer
