Great look with an orange amber hue and a thick foamy head. Extremely frothy lacing as the beer goes down. Aroma is welcoming, with grapefruit and resinous hop elements, and spicy rye. While I expected this beer to be more bitter, I was surprised to be greeted by a sweet and noticeably malty start to the flavor, with a sweet citrus aspect too, but it did fade out with a good bitter hop finish. Although I do detect the 'graininess' of the Rye, I would like it to be more pronounced. The beer is a little sticky, coating the mouth well but it is rather light bodied. Overall, this is good but Founders is still the reigning champion of Rye-P-As in my book.
