Appearance is a nice clear amber with a little haze and not much head. Nose is super floral and citrus--yum. Mouthfeel is thin to medium. Taste is a delightful hoppy bitter at first then a solid malt after taste as well. This has quickly become my current session ale of choice--it's just delightful!

From: Binny's
Bottled: 6/7/12
Glass: Tulip

Pours a 1cm head of fairly clean, white foam, made up of small and medium-sized bubbles, which eventually fades to a thick ring around the glass and a few sparse islands of residual foam atop the beer's body. Lacing exists, but is fairly minimal, a few spots and lines that exist after each sip. The beer's body is semi-hazy, golden-orange out of light, a brighter orange when near a source of luminescence. Carbonation is visible, largely streaming from the base of the tulip glass.

Dank hop aroma, full of grapefruit citrus with twists of unripe apricot and peach, a touch of cumin, all atop a pleasant pale malt base. In general, a substantial and fairly amazing collection of scents for a session brew.

Taste is surprisingly light, yet full of fresh fruit flavors, including some peach, mango, juicy mild grapefruit. Specifically, the taste begins with some mild pale malt sweetness alongside light citrus and mango esters. Mid-palate features substantial grapefruit and grapefruit rind bitterness and flavor over a very modest malt base. Back of palate picks up continued, though milder, bitterness along with some peach flavors. Aftertaste is quite bitter, with a bit of distinct grapefruit rind and cumin spice flavor.

The body of the beer is fairly light, perhaps medium-light in weight, with substantial carbonation that prickles the palate slightly, but also foams the beer up substantially. The result is a slightly harsh, yet overall smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Finish is quite dry, with little to no stickiness left around the palate.

AP: pours a golden yellow with great clarity, eggshell white head.

AR: Grassy and earthy with slight citrus notes.

TS: Very balanced, lightly bodied, freshly cut grass, lemon.

MF: Decent mouthfeel, above average carbonation.

OV: A good example of the style, packing the great flavors of a Founders IPA into a sessionable beer.
