12oz bottled Sept 29, 2010, enjoying this one less than two weeks old...very excited to crack this bad boy open!
Pours golden with a hint of amber and noticeable bits of haze, two finger white head that leaves a ring of drippy lacing and holds a light cap.
Aroma is all sorts of citrus hops, oranges, grapefruit, some pineapple, a touch of tropical fruits, not much malt, pretty much all hops. Good strength.
As impressive as the aroma is, the flavor is even better and is a punch to the mouth of super-fresh juicy hops, just amazing. There is a touch of malt to attempt to balance, moderate bitterness...real smooth drinker. Finishes nice and dry.
Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, medium carbonation.
Wow, fantastic, amazing, incredible. Lovin' the wet hopped stuff coming out this time of year and having a super-fresh bottle makes it all the better. Founders continues to impress.
I see this is listed as an APA here...thought it was an IPA...either way it is phenomenal for whichever category.
