The beer comes in a deep ruby red color that is clear.

The aroma has lots of citrus, orange, grapefruit, sweet caramel malt, and a bit of earthy pine.

The flavor follows with mostly pine and floral notes and then grapefruit bitterness on the end. There is a peppery spice from the rye along with a gentle sweetness.

Despite being bitter and hoppy, the beer is really well balanced. Just another phenomenal beer from Founders.
