Poured from the bottle into my Gandhi-Bot snifter. Nice honey/amber coloring and about a finger of white head. Almost no lacing.

Smell is appealing. Some citrus (the zest, anyway), some pine.

Taste is refreshing, but not as impressive as I expect Founders to be. I'm not disappointed that I passed over this at liquor stores countless times.

Overall, it's solid but no All-Day and certainly no Devil Dancer.

One last sip before I go away: yeah, I stand by this review. Sealed and approved.

I really like this beer. It is made using centennial hops, which I think gives it great flavor. It has a very nice aroma that consists of grapefruit and some other types of citrus fruit. The taste is very pleasant on my tongue and you can definitely taste the hops, as well as the citrus notes. It does have a bit of an aftertaste, but it's a pleasant aftertaste. I'd definitely recommend it.

A decent beer with a beautiful dark golden color. Head is decent(average). Carbonation is good but anymore and it would take away from the flavor. Nice hoppy-citrus flavors and maybe a little bitter orange towards the finish. Overall, in the top 50% of beers I have tasted.
