COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pours a spectacular crimson red with a creamy tan head. Brewed with four varieties of Belgian caramel malts imparting a sweet richness.

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

Note: Formerly Redís Rye P.A.

Reddish brown poured from a tap. Tastes of rye and hops. Pretty smooth but overall a good beer.

Hazy dark amber with a thin rocky light beige head. Nose is big and full with caramel covered rye toast and beautiful floral hops. The flavor is big on that earthy rye spicy acidity with a wee touch of tropical mango, kiwifruit, floral hops, with a sweet caramel/amber malt backbone. This is truly lovely for itís crisp hoppy finish and sweet body buttressed by a bit of rye and ample hops. Wowee.

#1 Desert Island Beer. I cried when Founderís made it seasonal... Stunning blend of floral hops and bitterness. Complex yet clean and crisp. Carmel sweetness, with layered levels of spice. This is the perfect beer!

12 oz bottle for 3.29. Pours hazy copper/amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is huge citrus hops and fruit, a little rye and a malty backbone. Taste is slightly malty with citrus and rye flavors as well. A smooth bitterness on the back end. Palate is pretty average all around. Overall this is a pretty good IPA but there are cheaper offerings that are just as good or better.

Draft at Khyber Pass. Hazy ruby color with some lasting off-white foam. Well balanced IPA. The rye flavors are both pronounced and subtle. Earthy wood flavors. Truffles. Shiitake. Also medium dark malty fruits. Blood orange peels. Cherry cordials. Nice strong spicy notes as well. Red peppers. Cardamom. Nutmeg. Very well constructed.

pours a reddish color with a medium sized off white head. the aroma was hops, grapefruit, and very mild rye. the taste has a hop kick up front but i wouldnít guess 70 ibuís. there is lots of pine in the flavor as well as other hops. this beer is very drinkable and not syrupy like some other hoppy ipaís. i really enjoyed this beer.

12 oz. bottle. Beautiful deep amber pour, filtered, with an off white head and cobweb lacing. Smell is aromatic piney hops with citrus notes of pineapple, mango and grapefruit. A sweet and peppery essence comes through as well. Taste is almost equally sweet malt and west coast hops with a sweet and classic rye peppery finish. Great balance of flavors in the finish. A nice malty IPA that lives up to its billing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another solid beer from Founders, but the question I have is purely for rating reasons why this is labeled as an IPA and not grains? Anyways, nice one but its either the high sweetness of the malts or the rye that I find to be a bit annoying after awhile. Looking forward to finishing this one before its done.

Very floral scent, a nice lookin beer with spicey flavor and bitter, feels good throughout but for me its just ok not something I would go out and buy especially sitting next to other founders options
