So here it is, Founders harvest ale.
Poured a 12oz bottle into a 20oz snifter. Slight head of white color, less than half a finger thick. Decent lacing, slight bubble spree rising through the glass. Excellent golden amber color.
Smell : Devilish weeds, with grassy and earthy hops. very herb like. Striking and subtle. Excellent use of aroma. No malt presence whatsoever.
Taste: Good amount of bitterness upfront. Definitely feels like more than 70 IBUs. All fresh, american hops of strong beta and less alpha acids. Falls on the palate and disappears quickly. Extremely oily and vapor like presence. No amount of sweetness, whatsoever. Has a huge effect inside the stomach, just within 2 ounces of it going in. Love it.
Mouth feel: Hits the palate and evaporates. Medium to medium light body feel. Moderate carbonation.
For the style : 4.25
Personal bias: 4.5
I love this IPA, overwhelmed me, when i was expecting just another fresh hop IPA.
Serving type: bottle
