4.04/5 rDev -2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
P: Slight haze in a effervescent body of glistening copper. Minimal white lacing that sloppily grasps the edges.
S: Grass and dry hay with a touch of honey. Citrus and melon bitterness with a natural but sweet toasted malt aroma. Sun baked plastic trash bag funk. Faint bubblegum fumes. Not getting a lot of pine out of this but it is timid.
T/M: The fruity melon and citrus notes continue with the syrupy malt base. Natural flavors like grass and hay combined with a herbal undertone balance the sweet and bitter. Medium-full body with a crisp carbonation to create a great body. Finish is dry with a carbonated bite. Spicy alcohol with a undertone of pine once warm.
O: Great IPA that has complex but balanced flavors. This ipa is more malt foreard that aggressively hopped. Founders is just fantastic. I have yet to be disappointed with anything they have to offer. Cheers!

This one snuck up on me!
I wasn't expecting such a deliciously refreshing ale from founders. I typically enjoy their stouts and haven't tryried many others.
This is right up there with the best apa's I've tried.
The smell is amazing with some characteristics that are hard to explain. Completely unique!
Bottom line- If you see this on the shelf, buy it!
