Single bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, as part of a Founders lineup. It's a brewery I have yet to really explore.

Poured into a Founders-branded nonic. A darker crimson-amber colour, nice creamy head that survives throughout the bottle and leaves some sheets of lacing. Fine looking brew.

Nose is sweet and malty, with a bit of spicy grain in the back - probably the rye. Grapefruit and other citrus hops in the mix as well.

Great tasting brew, with a chewy thickness that makes for a terrific slow sipper. Quite hoppy, with the Amarillo hops providing a sturdy grapefruit citrus bitterness. The spicyness isn't as pronounced as I have seen in other rye brews, but it is enough to move this brew enough away from the category of pale ale into something new. Digging this a great deal.

The rye certainly adds a different component to the brew that makes for a highly quaffable, hoppy ale. Not sure who Red is, but I likes his beer just fine!
