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.

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 (6264) - 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.

Ah... it appears my nemesis RAYBOY01 has been the last to sample this beer. This gentleman has repeatedly thrown down the gauntlet to race me to 1000 ratings... then recants as if he simply dropped the glove. I think he is attempting to thwart my perseverance through sheer confusion, but he does not realize that  I am a juggernaut, out of control!!!!

Ahem. Yes, well... this beer pours a dark copper with a sediment haze topped with a creamy, cream-colored head. Big, harsh & almighty citrus in the aroma with juicy grapefruit. The alcohol that arrives later is strong and reminds me of my childhood and my mother trying to get my fever down through alcohol sponge baths. Bitter hops are predominant in the flavor with abundant citrus, while malts do not add sweetness as much as add depth. It may be the power of suggestion, but I could swear I also detect caraway. Hopheads rejoice, youíre really going to like this one.

Appetizing aromas of pine and grapefruit lure me in. Rich roasted maltiness as expected, but the twist of adding a malted rye adds another unique dimension...a chewy cereal quality. Very potent Pacific Northwest hopping...grapefruit/pine/and orange juice. Good session material.
