Bottled 11/20/12, good fresh sample. Poured this into a Founders Snifter Glass.
A: Pours a relatively clear, dark amber orange color. Bout a finger of off white head that recedes at a skim, good lace.
S: Big, bright floral tones, sweet citrus and grapefruit, nice floral quality on this one, decent amount of caramel malt sweetness, light earthy notes.
T: Grapefruit peel, tangerines, and citrus hop bitterness upfront, milder piney notes, pretty florally too, actually pretty balanced between the hops and caramel/toffee malt sweetness. Really dry finish, slight hop oil coating on mouth.
M: Medium bodied, smooth feel, carbonation is a bit lower end on this one.
O: Very nice offering here from Founders. As my palate adjusted, I enjoyed the beer more and more. My first hoppy brew from these guys. Good stuff and glad I bought a six pack.
