GLASS: Saison Dupont Becker
TEMP: Served at approx 45 degrees
Pours a very golden orange color with very light hints of amber. The two-finger thick head of fluffy foam is a slightly off-white color. Retention is great and lacing is plentiful.
This smells like a citrus bomb. Awesome! Tons of Fresh orange and tangerine notes. Light hints of lemon and grapefruit. There is even a wonderful level of pineapple presence, just below the surface.
The citrus notes carry through, quite nicely. This one is big and juicy! There are some nice hints of pine sap and grapefruit skin coming out, as well. Light honey sweetness. A good maltiness holds the whole thing together.
This is medium-bodied and has a high level of carbonation. It feels clean, yet not overly crisp.
This is really a great representation of what I think of when I think of a 'good' IPA. I could drink gallons of this stuff....it's delicious!
Once again, Founder's Brewing comes through with flying colors!
