22 oz bottled poured into an IPA glass. No date on bottle.

A - Poured a ruby red in color with less than a ginger of head. Readily apparent carbonation. No sediment/cloudiness. Very little lacing.

S - Rye, black tea, and some citrus.

T - Rye, spice, black tea, nutmeg, and some citrus with a strong malt backbone. Minor bitter spice and tea finish.

M - Crisp and clean with strong carbonation.

O - Although labeled as a Double/Imperial IPA, does not remind me of one. Purchased this after really enjoying Founder's Red's Rye PA and was disappointed. Not a bad beer, but not a repeat purchase either

Very nice and just what I want in an IPA. More tangy than some and nice and tart. Refreshing and filling and I'll have to agree with all others when they describe the taste. Deep brick red with a bit of cloudness. Not as heavy as others described.
I need a growler of this to share post soccer game. Enjoyed a pint at the Bulldog in Baton Rouge.
