Picked up a four-pack at TW in early November for $11.99. Bottled on 9/30/14.

Beer poured a light gold with a near perfect white head that is still lingering.

Nose is catty city, fresh hops are very prevalent.

Taste is fresh grapefruit rind with some floral hops laid over a nice light toast malt backbone.

Feel is light and prickly, surprisingly refreshing for a bigger beer.

Overall this is a well put together fresh hop ale that I was surprised to find on the shelf. Glad I had the opportunity to try. Jump on this if you like IPA's.

Strong floral and dank hops, with medium bitterness and moderate sweetness.

I was wondering what I'd be drinking this fall and I have found it! This is another outstanding brew from Founders, I just wish they made more of it.
