COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pours a spectacular crimson red with a creamy tan head. Brewed with four varieties of Belgian caramel malts imparting a sweet richness. Reds Rye is impressively balanced with its hop bitterness and floral bouquet achieved from the dry hop. In the finish, the generous amount of malted rye used accentuates a spicy crisp finish.

Bottled - winter seasonal. On tap - year-round.

Note: Formerly Redís Rye P.A.

Bottle courtesy of Thaichile. Bottle opened with a loud "POP" and the beer came gushing out! I was able to catch some of it and luckily it stopped gushing shortly after. It poured a murky reddish-brown with a massive long lasting foamy off-white head. Pour this sucker very carefully! I had to wait a while before I could actually drink it. Aroma of floral hops, sweet malt, some spices and a good amount of rye. Flavour of sweet malt, rye, spices, some alcohol and a long hoppy finish. Medium to full bodied. Unique and quite enjoyable.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - MAR 13, 2006
Tasted side by side with the black rye. Poured a hazy red body with a moderate head. Aroma is caramel malts with lotsa hops, reminded me of Arrogant Bastard. Hop notes are spicy, citrusy and light grapefruit. There is also a detectable alcohol presence in the aroma, woulda guessed more than 6.8%. The rye presence is here moreso than the black. I liked this one more at the start of the tasting, and less by the end. Still, I scored them exactly the same..

Hoppy aroma with not much else. Pours a nice orange with a lovely white creamy head. Flavor is pretty strongly hopped with a touch of malting throughout (light on caramel, sprouts). Very crisp. It dissappoints me that the very distinct rye is never really realized in any rye beers.

Thanks to Illinismitty, a new member in Tennessee, for this one! This pours with a disappointingly small head of off-white. Medium red/orange hazy body. Big íC Hopí aroma. Sweet in the start, the dry bitterness builds nicely providing a well balanced finish.

12 oz bottle. Aroma is hops and rye. Flavor is more of the same. A little too bitter for me.

Suttree (5224) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 21, 2006
Its red, as the name suggests. Thin tan head. Spicy aroma, with a hint of sweetness. Big dose of citrus pine, as well. Big hop flavors up front that meld into orange, pine, caramel and Iím gonna say rye. again, as the name suggests. Thanks to Springslicker for sharing!

(02.16.06) 12 oz bottle from Archer Liquors, Chicago, IL. Hazy red hued rye ale having a small white head. Nice fruity/hoppy aroma. Medium-to-full bodied ale that starts with light malt sweetness and spicy/fruity/toffee/hop flavors. Finishes dry with lingering hop (grapefruit) flavor and bitterness. Well balanced. Delicious giant beer. Another excellent offering from Founderís.

I would call this a Rye IPA, and I love it. Deep red pour with an offwhite head. Big hop aroma, very floral on the nose, a little spicey, perhaps the rye showing itís presence already. Flavour starts with a citrus hop bite, to carmely malts, to a balance of largely, and wonderfully floral hops over a deeper malt character with the aformentioned carmel sweetness cutting the bitterness. Finishes with spicey hops with undertones of rye, alcohol, and little leftover malts. This is a serious brew, espacially for $9 a 6 pack year round at the local market. I canít wait to see how it ages, as it seems strong enough to take it.
