look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a beautiful ruby amber red with a 2 finger creamy white head...it settles down a bit and the lacing is quite dramatic considering the style...

Smells of relatively fresh hops and VERY strong rye...by far one of my favorite styles...cant decide if this or Hop Rod is the best RyePA out there...this is more on the malty and piney side but a real treat for those who prefer IPAs and enjoy a diversion within the style on occasion...

Taste matches the nose...taste of bitter hops is enveloped with a strong rye presence...slight sweetness balances everything out...

Mouthfeel exceeds most IPAs...the rye adds a dimension that straight up IPAs cant match IMHO...full as hell and beyond drinkable...

Im sure most of you have tried this delicious beer...an easily attainable year round offering from Founder's...always fresh(they bottle date)...and an (almost) session beer that can be enjoyed throughout an evening...please try this beautiful beer if you havent and cheers to Founder's once again as they pull off an impressive but at times precarious balance between their year round and highly in demand seasonal offerings...
