Night dos for new Founders for me. Color is golden straw and fairly hazy?? Curious. Nose is pure and simple grapefruit. Haven't smelled a New Zealand Sauv Blanc with quite that much fruit. Mouthfeel is a a little disappointing---expected something lush and stick to the roof of your mouth but this guy is lean and sleek.
On the palate though the fruit is a little superficial and gives way quickly to a dry finish marked with a little bit of pepper??? Not much on the mid-palate. Curious. Over all an easy quaffer. A summery take on the Double IPA idea. A good picnic Dbl IPA, maybe if there is such a thing.
