The beer pours a hazy orange copper with a thin white head. The aroma is full of bright refreshing citrus hops. There is also a pleasant sweetness that is very inviting. The flavor is moderately bitter with grapefruit, oranges and other citrus fruits. I love the American C hops! The body is moderate with subtle carbonation.

This is a fantastic beer! Coming off of Victory's Yakima Glory I'm just blown away by this one. So well rounded with enough hops and sweetness to keep it interesting! So far in my book Founders can do no wrong.

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!
