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.
