WOW! I'm not overly familiar with Founders, but after trying their Breakfast Stout I had to give this beer a shot. It's absolutely delicious.

Appearance- A gorgeous burnt orange-red with a gentle layer of foam that quickly dissipates

Aroma- An appealing hop scent is immediately evident.

Taste- A hop-heads dream, the 70 IBUs dominate the taste but not too overpowering. The malts definitely make a statement but they're clearly in the background.

Mouthfeel- Gentle carbonation, very pleasant.

Drinkability- I could drink this all night, it is pure ambrosia!

Wow, WOW. I had know idea what to expect from this beer. I picked it out randomly believe it or not, cause I had never seen it before. It sat in my fridge for over a month before I finally tried it. I was nervous as I had never had a "rye" beer. This beer goes down like cool-aid. Its got a smooth but very flavorful sweet taste. Its like a tamed down IPA but packed full with taste. This is my favorite beer so far.
