I can't help but compare this to Sierra Nevada's Ruthless Rye, only not as good. I was expecting more from my first Founders experience to tell the truth.

Pours a perfect amber red and has a nice head. Fantastic lacing as itís drank and is frankly the best rye I have ever had! Slightly citrusy but damn Fucking awesome!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, tiny bubbled, well retained, ivory head, with moderate lacing over a slightly hazy dark amber (SRM 15) body.....nose is rye, cereal from the grains, light pine, hints of citrus peel, hints of floral tones from the hops, minimal esters....taste is toffee/caramel type sweetness from the malts, rye spiciness, light floral tones, pine and hints of citrus peel from the hops leading to a moderate clean, bitter finish....mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky, minimal astringency, alcohol hidden, low carbonation with light acid. This is clean, well balanced, and appropriately complex in both aroma and flavor. The rye comes through nicely, adding a nice touch. The result is a delicious beer. BJCP 9/3/16/5/7

12oz bottle poured into tulip. Murky reddish copper body with a one inch khaki head that settles to a cap and ring. Patchy lacing throughout the drink. Aroma is grapefruit, herbal hop, rye spice, and caramel malt. Taste is light malty sweetness all the way through, piney and floral bitterness, spicy rye bite, and some citrus fruit. Medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation, and a bitter spicy finish.

on tap. Hazy red/amber colour. very hoppy aroma with cereal and caramel to boot. Nice medium body, but sports a fast finish and has some cereal grains and more caramel. decent but lacks depth.
