from the bottle, poured crimson red with a nice fluffy light tan head aroma a nose full of hops, malts, grapefruits, hints of caramel, molasses. the hops were not as strong as the aroma which was good, nice mouth feel has a pleasant bitterness to it, grapefruit. do not know what malted rye taste like but there is a flavor in here that I like so maybe that is it. good beer.

What a nice offering from the gang in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

This one pours out to a dark amber in the glass with a slight to medium head. The aroma is that of pine and citrus. The taste is excellent, with said pine coming through via the hop presence this one has. Great malt backbone as well. As someone else mentioned, this reminded me of a west coast beer, and reminded me of offerings from Stone and Sierra Nevada. Very reminiscent of a Pale Ale cruising toward IPA-territory with hints of spice and pepper.

This beer looked exactly like the Imperial IPA from Founder's on the pour. Crimson red in color with a one inch tan head that had good retention. Smell is very bready and somewhat sweet. The taste was sweet upfront with a caramel flavor, the top has a rye base to it and was quite thick, the finish was hoppy but not really bitter. Quite a thick and complex beer with some bold flavors but not overly sweet or bitter. A good beer to try at Founders but there are better choices at their brewery.

Pours with a one-fingered head on a red-hued clear liquid.
Aroma of rye is very prevalent but not overpowering. Caramel malt and floral hop hints also accounted for.
Flavor starts with a sweet caramel base which is immediately overrun by a grainy, rye that in turn is overpowered by a flowery and moderately bitter finish.
Mouthfeel has a gritty, grainy texture to it.
Drinkability is pretty high, could definitely be comfortable with a few of these in a row.
