BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Founders Brewing Company
Michigan, United States
foundersbrewing.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our dry-hopped Pale Ale takes on a completely different attitude when infused with nitrogen. The medium body and malty sweetness remain strong, with an intensified creaminess that gives the citrus of the Cascade hops a smooth allure all its own.

35 IBU

Pours a pale Amber with a beautiful nitro action. As it settles there is a beautiful, tall, thick, creamy, white head that hangs around and leaves some massive lace.

Nose is full of floral and fruit but a little less pungent in nitro.

Taste is very interesting. Up front you get the smooth creamy mouthfeel of the nitro, yet in the back is the full wonderful flavor of the Founders Pale Ale.

Decent pale ale on nitro. Nice nose, wiyh hoppy goodness and a touch of malt. Flavor is slightly hoppy but seems a touch watered down. Overall, balanced quite well..

The beer had me at the pour, such a pretty beer. Fantastic head, beautiful lacing. Finishes a little on the lighter side for a pale but it's been a go to at our new spot Gnarly Brews in Phillipsburg, NJ.
