A: Pours a semi hazy copper with a dense white head.
S: Bright grapefruit and citrus with a light malt underpinning. The hop aroma reminds me of opening a package of pellet hops. Some low malty caramel comes through
T: The flavor comes in 2 distinct waves. A sweet malty kick with a firm bitterness in the front quickly followed by a slightly stronger bitterness and orange citrus in the finish. The bitterness lingers on the palate for a bid with a pleasant grapefruit aftertaste. Semi-dry finish
M: light bodied, slightly oily and slick with medium carbonation.
O: This is an extremely well done IPA. Complex and fruity with a surprisingly good malt underbelly. The hops are the star and are FRESH but it allows the malty sweetness to come out and play. Truly a joy to drink. for an added treat, let it warm for 10 minutes and then you'll get more of the malt coming through. My guess is a nice pale ale malt with a medium crystal. It reminds me of an English ESB with a big hop kick. Founders never disappoints!
