I am not typically an IPA fan, so take that for what it is worth. I like this beer becaus it is not overly hoppy, but enough to let you know it's an IPA. Smell is not overly dramatic, but not bad. Taste is where it shines. A malty IPA feel that isn't too hoppy to be a distraction. Floral citrus notes with just a touch of bitter sweet.

Founders Red's Rye IPA, 6.6% ABV, 70 IBU, style is Rye Beer. Pours thin and medium red with a finger of white foamy head that dissipated quickly and left some lacing. Nose is roastiness, taste is roasted rye and a bit of sweetness, not as bitter as I had expected. OK mouthfeel. Not my favorite style, but is decent, and refreshing. Wouldn't seek another out, though wouldn't turn one down.
