Appearance: Golden with good lacing. An appetizing ale.

Smell: Pear and pineapple. I especially like the pear, but this is a bit sour.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Extremely bitter, and not in a good way. Skunked pine cones. It is smooth, but definitely flat.

Overall Drinkability: I can officially say I've found a Founders beer I don't like. They say every dog has its day. Whatever the opposite of that saying is...this is it for Founders.

Served in a wellington glass.

Appearance: Transparent gold, heavy bubbles on the body with a somewhat weak head. Maybe it's 1/8" (if that) off the body.

Smell: This brew smells ridiculously of fresh hops easily the best property of the beer. Strong floral and citrus.

Taste: Like the scent but little light in strength. I didn't know the able level till I started reviewing it. This is easily the lightest IPA I have had but the flavor is still bold.

Mouth: Medium with very light stickiness, has that grapefruit skin after taste whivh is just right.

Overall: At first it is very bland, but it is one of those that builds up sip after sip. It is definitely not on the level of some other IPAs I have had but I would definitely call this an easier intro for the style of beer. One more thing because of the wet hop feel, it feels like a thirst quencher. This might just be your warm weather IPA. Salud!

Bottled on 2/25/13

A: Clear, golden-yellow in color with a fizzy, white head. Builds and fades quickly. No lace or retention.

S: Piney, grassy, resiny hops.

T: Fresh, vibrant, sticky hops with a hint of sweet malt in the finish. Such a tasty, easy-drinking, perfect-with-food kinda beer.

M: Never too hoppy where it's cloying or dry. The carbonation is spot-on. Great stuff.

O: I'm giving this high marks overall because it's such an awesomely drinkable beer and perfect for satisfying hop cravings without the ABV punch of many other IPAs & IIPAs.
