look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12oz bottle.
A- Poured into pint glass. Dark cider looking apperance with a quater inch off white head that went away pretty fast. Lacing left on the glass just tends to slide down the glass.
S- This has a nice fruity hop smell to it (pineapple/grapefruit and citrus). I can smell faint malts if I try real hard. This just smells like a sweet IPA. Good job Founders.
T- Very nice crisp hops bite to it. The sweetness is still there but not as apparent as in the smell. The malts come through a little more as well making this a balanced beer without losing the aspect of it being an IPA. Good citrus fruity hop taste upfront and a clean bitterness lingering on the way down.
M- This beer (whole 6 pack) has been almost on the verge of being too overcarbonated. Other than that leaves a nice hop resin on the tounge. This beer has overall a good mouthfeel just wish there was a little less carbonation to it.
D- I could drink this as a staple in my weekly diet. This beer goes down pretty smooth and the alcohol is there but...is nicely hidden at the same time.
