Founder’s Red’s Rye PA is, well, awesome. I really enjoy rye ales, and hoppy ales, and this is both, and a cut about the rest. The nose is heavy grapefruit, the middle is packed with grapefruit, pine, and the signature dry bite of rye, and the finish is more grapefruit, sweet, with some bitter rind at the very tail. The balance and complexity are both outstanding, and I’m glad I found this one in a six-pack, because this is definitely one I want again.
I give it a 4.7 out of 5.
