3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark crimson giving way to brown. I get a little orange and grapefruit in the nose, as well as a good amount of rye spice and malted sweetness. Taste is spicy and bitter, more of that unsweetened citrus peel sprinkled with rye, there is enough malt to round it out though. It feels a little heavy for the ABV, but still quite enjoyable. I like rye beers and I think this is one of the better ones, however not one of the best from Founders.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton (welcome to FL Founders!!) Tulip. Pours an awesome golden amber with a foamy thick white head. Aroma is rich with rye, cereal, bread and slight pine hops. Taste is awesome balance of the rye malts and the light hops. Very smooth, not overly bitter or funky like a lot of rye IPAs have been lately. Rye bread, cereal, light pine and grass are all balanced with a nice smooth finish. Medium light body. Light carbonation. Oh so very good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Trinity Brass Tap. Pours a clear reddish amber color with a creamy beige roamed head. Sudsy sheets of lacing along the glass. Aroma has spices and burnt/roasted caramel malt notes with a good bit of hops as well. Very nice flavor with a great balance between the spice rye notes, malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
light yellow head that disappears without lacing. amber turbid (prob due to gushing) colour. aroma of rye, sweet, fruity, marzipan, sherry/porto, nuts. taste of rye with an aftertaste that is bitter, sweet and nuts. quite dense body, medium body and carbonation. quite complex taste, well balanced, too bad it was a gusher when opening.

Pours a bright red with a red-tinged head. Very fruity and sweet. Strong citrus and caramel flavours. Sweetness is exceptionally well balanced by the hops. A winner from Founders.

Good rye background behind the crisp hop notes. Iím not a big hop fan, but I found that this one went down really smoothly and had a good flavor and bite.
