12 oz bottle served in a Thomas Creek pint glass. Michigan meets South Carolina.

Not a bad looking ale. This beer pours just fine.

The head is durable and the glass ends up nicely decorated with sticky lacing.

The aroma is strongly hoppy, with fruity, floral, spruce and herbal hop elements. (The previous reviewer really nailed this part.)

The flavor is a complex mix of fantastic hoppy elements. The malt is there to back up the bitterness. One of my favorites. I will buy this one anytime I find it.

The flavor is better than the aroma. Or vice versa. Another solid IPA from Founders. Thank you vely much.
