Pours a light amber with a rich full tan pitted head that has excellent retention and side glass lace.
Aroma: Sharp citrus hops but with balancing malts.

Taste: Citrus and floral hops still lead but biscuit malts with a little sweet caramel are included.

Mouthfeel: Maulty on the palate.
Overall: Very drinkable and enjoyable IPA>

Floral hops, citrusy, malty, piney aromas. Taste is very fruity, a tad bitter, a very smooth brew. Good year-around beer that is not tough to acquire.

12oz bottle dated 06/24/17 poured into a short chalice shows a cloudy, orange-gold colored body floating an impressive 1in white foam head. The rising bubbles are clearly visible in the clouds.

Aroma is pine hop forward, yet with still a malt back.

Flavor matches. It has become a standard in my pallette memory for the style.

Mouthfeel is a clean, medium, mouth filling crispness.

Overall a classic.

Crushable ipa, reminds me more of a pale ale or apa, not bitter and plenty of malt to back up the hops.

Not to be a fanboy but everything from founders is on point...
