Red body with an off white head. Big grapefruit aroma with a good dose of malts. Mouth puckering grapefruit hit of hops in the taste and a bitter finish. Clingy mouthfeel

Pours beautiful orange red with smallish tan head which quickly disappears. Nose is citrusy, hoppy and slightly malty. Flavor is huge of hop bitterness with nice balanced maltyness. Resembles an IPA.

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.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2005 Speckled russet. Tight-bubbled ring surrounds a broken foam center. Sugared grapefruit aroma with firm caramel, anise, and cedar undertones. Softly carbonated. Delicately hoppy with floral hop softness, yet with plenty of richly bready maltiness to quell the slight acidity. Somewhat grainy with shards of coarse hop leaves and raw cane sugar brushing the palate and deepening the understated grapefruit rind bitterness. Muted glazed malt sweetness and toasted malt hulls impart more dryness but re-agitate the acidity. Tart grapefruit acidity and oily hops numb the tongue and deaden the breadiness. Firm cedar notes add more dryness to the finish, as it remains persistently sprucey and hoppy, sealed with a crisply dry Rye punctuation. Not too shabby.

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2004
extreme cascade aroma, amber with a perfectly formed light brown head, initially lots of piney hops then the rye hits and complements nicely, the slick rye carries your tastebuds to the finish and dries out, delicious, this bottle had significantly more hop character and tasted fresher than previous bottles Iíve had

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2005 has a kick-ass centennial dry-hopped aroma that really gets up in your face. in fact, i think i have a hops cone stuck in my nostril. very smooth and surprisingly thick malt body, belies the aroma, which would seem to be more proof of dry-hopping. still a strong spicy rye presence, very interesting brew. more balanced than an over-the-top IPA like hop devil or two-hearted. another great founders beer.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - DEC 9, 2004
Huge citrus hop aroma, lots of grapefruit. Nice red color, decent tan head. Great balance to the flavor, big hops, lots of caramel and toast in the malt aspect, unique spiciness from the rye. Solid bitterness. Medium-full body, very smooth. Hoppiness and bitterness is like an IPA, but with a really nice malt component to balance it out.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Pours a clear coper bronze with a decent frothy off-white head. Has a fresh hoppy and toasted caramel malty aroma. Body starts with some mild rich caramel and toffee sweetness turning more dry toward a well-balanced somewhat hoppy crisp finish. A very nice rye beer with decent complexity of flavor. Thanks secret santa!

This is one of those "Emmeril" beers - "BAM!" - the citrus hop aroma wakes you up; "BAM" - the orange red bubbly brew topped with a thick head and fantastic lacing really catches your eye; "BAM!!" the flavor - oh the flavor! - super tongue shriveling rye really coats the tongue - tastes like very sharp rye toast and cirtus grapefruit orange peel. "BAM!!!!" - the finish is like an everlasting gobstopper made of rye and hops. We may have this listed as "an ale" , but it could kick the ass of many IPAís. More and more good brew from Founders - Iím never disappointed.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2007 Okay Iím missing it again folks, this stuff tastes, looks, smells like Bear Republicís Hop Rye, but it doesnít get near the accolades. Ruby red color, moderate off white head. Aroma is very piny and moderately citrus. This is very much an IPA flavor and a good one at that, just like Hop Rye. Flavor is bitter and piney. Slight dry finisih. If you like an IPA, try this beer and you will not be disappointed. Like an amber ale, ryes can have a big variety in flavor and this one is very IPAíish.
