Golden in color with a sustaining white head and excellent lacing. This is a fine looking APA.

The aroma features lemony pine hops with either an adjunct or wheat smell...it is hard to tell.

Up front, the taste is nice, loaded with citrusy hops. The back end is thin and in comes an adjunct lager like taste. It reminds me of a combination of Gumballhead and Labatts.

Thin in the mouth and rather uninspiring.

An interesting pale but I don't understand what it is trying to create. It would be nice to know the background of this beer.

On tap at Founders last week. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a nice golden color. Clear with a good white head and some sticky lacing on the way down. The nose carries through some light citrus hops and a bit of biscuit-like grain in the background. Faint hops for sure. Flavor is similarly week and disappointing coming from Founders. Light body with a dry finish. Not much going on here.
