On tap at Carson's American Bistro in northern Ann Arbor, MI . It poured a hazy coppery golden and smelled of delicious floral and citrusy hoppiness. It had a pleasant citrus and hop taste with a decent bitter hop finish falling just short of an IPA. The body was a solid medium but lighter in color just as I'd want from a pale ale. This one went great with my mushroom burger and fries. A decently heavy yet very drinkable brew.
Serving type: on-tap

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
