on tap, this is a lovely example of a rye beer, nice and dry on the finish but with a lovely hop balance all the way down the glass, great stuff

Poured from a growler. This dark copper beer could have used a bit more carbonation but had a lively hop presence dominated by herbal and spicy notes with a solid malt backbone. Aftertaste somewhat astringent but leaves me wanting another sip. Very slight sourness in the finish.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 330ml bottle server in a Pint glass.
A: Pours a beautiful amber color which is clear in the beginning but that becomes cloudy in the end. Some particles can be seen floating around. Forms a huge and big bubbled yellow head. Excellent retention and tons of soapy lacings formed and left in the glass
S: Sweet, grainy and quite lemony in the nose. Strong notes of malts and rye. Brown sugar, orange peel with some peppery notes. Tropical fruits. Earthy yeasts
T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of caramel malts and rye. Strong notes of citrus fruits (grapefruit, orange and lemon). Brown sugar. Spices: A bit peppery in the mouth too. Delicious 70 IBUs bitterness. Light notes of pine. Earthy yeasts in the very end
M: Medium, smooth body. Good carbonation. Herbal and lemony aftertaste
O: Excellent drinkability. Absolutely delicious PA. My 7th Founders which gets an above 4 evaluation. What else can I say about this brewery?

"dang...this is one aromatic and flavorful brew. canít say i like it more or less than the (also great) Centennial IPA, so i guess i gotta score em the same. huge bouquet of spicy and floral hops. the rye blends seamlessly with the flavor of the hops and slightly sweet malt. heavier than expected, and the alcohol was noticeable, but not at all overbearing. Founders continues to climb. Thanks Cory and/or John...not sure who this came from...but Iím glad Iíve got another!"

Elephant & Castle, Chicago, draft. Dark copper. Creamy off white head. A little nutty, a little malty. Very smooth with a little bitterness in the background. Very soft.
