This is a really good Pale Ale.
Pours an orange-gold and cloudy into my mug with the perfect one finger head which lingers for a few minutes and leaves the proper amount of lacing. Looks absolutely irresistable.
Has a very slight citrus smell and maybe some molasses in there too. Smells almost as good as it tastes.
This is the perfect pale ale. Full flavored, crisp carbonation, and a slight bitter aftertaste. Slight alcohol flavor. Very refreshing, very drinkable.
I think this is a home run for Founders (go figure). For a dry hopped pale ale, I've tasted none finer.
For those looking for a gateway beer, this could be the one. Try it, you wont be disappointed.

A: Pours a hazy golden with a dense white, long lasting head. Nice lacing.
S:Earthy, woody hop aroma with a wee bit of pine. A little light caramel come through.
T:Earthy hop bitterness is the main event with a less obvious caramel sweetness. bit of lemon peel and caramel are evident. The maltiness is short lived as its taken over by a low to moderate hop bitterness. Semi dry with a nice bready finish
M: low body, somewhat thin. Moderate carbonation with some astringency.
O: This beer is Not one of my favorites from Founders, in fact I find myself a little disappointed. It seems a bit weak. The body is just a bit too light and thin to suit me. The hop flavors are good and the beer is fairly well balanced, but I don't notice a distinct hop that I would expect with dry hopping. Just seems a bit muddled over all in its flavor.
