Had this one on tap up north.
A: 2 finger ecru head. Hazy golden amber color. Decent lacing and really nice head retention. Half a finger all the way down.
S: Spicy, hoppy, and fresh, very nice!
T: The Cascade hops are awesome with their piny-grapefruity kind bud pow intermingled with a nice maltiness. This brew is A-one and on draft it is AA-one.
M: Very nice pretty near full body on her.
D: This only gets better as it warms in your glass. I drank my first one quick, but I let the second sit around a bit and just sipped on her. The flavor really gets going when you let it warm a bit. Great BREW!
Serving type: on-tap

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.
Serving type: bottle
