A: a translucent gold reminiscent of beers of years gone by

S: Sunrise in a South Florida stable, enjoying a kumquat picked yesterday, while peeling a grapefruit for breakfast

T: A Trumpet blast of clean, crisp taste. Hello to all the citrus suggested by the initial smell.

M: Full and fulfilling with a nice closure.

O: A very nice change of pace from the usual fare. Strikes me as a well timed Summer beer.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip, not sure of the bottle date. Pours an attractive yellow orange, with a two inch white head that leaves plenty of lace behind.

Smell is earthy hops, fresh cut grass, lemon, pine, some biscuit, and grapefruit.

Taste follows the nose, some biscuit and pine up front gives way to bold lemon and grapefruit finish, really lingers and a good way.

Body is medium, with plenty of life, a touch dry, and so drinkable for 8.7%.

Overall I will buying more of this, really a great beer as I come expect from Founders.
