An old favorite. Been meaning to review for a while. Poured into imperial pint glass.
A Clear dark amber. Little head. Pencil thin lacing.
S This is one of the great things about this pale ale. Strong fresh aroma. Smells like a summer storm. Cut wheat. Honey. Pepper.
T Very much like the smell. Sweet honey taste, peppery. The hop kicker is very pronounced. Lingers a bit.
M Medium. Not syrupy, but there is some body. The finish is fairly clean, this is a pale ale after all, but it is a tad on the gritty side relative to the style.
O A great representative for the style. Light, smooth, sweet, got some hops and bitterness. Great 'lounging around' nay I say session beer. This joins FIS and Dirty Bastard as great Founders beers for their particular style.

3.43/5 rDev -7.3%

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.
