Notes: Like a fine Brut Champagne, Founders latest IPA is brilliantly clear, highly effervescent, and refreshingly dry. Designed for a more sophisticated IPA drinker, Civilized Brut has a clean and restrained bitterness. And the lack of haze and malt sweetness allows the hop flavors and aromas to tantalize your palate in a bold yet never overpowering way. There’s nothing savage about this brute - this IPA is well-refined and elegant.

Very nice refreshing new IPA sampled on tap at Founders. Clear golden color with just a little foamy head and very spotty lingering lacing. Smells nice, clean fruity hops with a little malt. Tastes of fruity zest hops - orange, lemon, grapefruit, maybe a little passion fruit - as well as vanilla, caramel and malt. Smooth mild mouthfeel and great carbonation. Very easy to drink and enjoy, definitely sessionable.
