25 day old bottle

Pours a clear orange/amber with a off-white head that sticks around and on the glass nicely.

Citrus and floral for the most part with some sweeter caramel and bready malt.

Mostly citrus hop flavor. Light touches of pine. Fairly big maltiness to it. The bitterness is subdued but sticks around into the dry finish. The carbonation and body are medium.

Nice easy drinking IPA. Nothing too outstanding though. I had the beer on tap when Founders first came to market and it seemed better than this.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Amber/copper in colour. Minimal head that dissipates quickly. Some lacing around the glass.

S: Strong citrus. A touch of sweetness.

T: Citrus fruit hops, bitter but well balanced with the malt. More flavour from the hops, rather than bitterness. Light sweetness.

M: Light carbonation, medium bodied. Sharpness on the palate.

Overall: Well balanced sessionable IPA. Bitterness is not overpowering, but is still present throughout.

Pours a clear deep copper with a frothy one inch cream head that lingers, eventually dissipating and leaving spotty lacing.

Resin, bready malt, toast, and dank hop notes form the initial aroma. Grapefruit, lemon, spruce, and fresh cut grass add complexity.

Flavor follows suit, with a caramel malt backbone, slightly sweet, pervading throughout. Grapefruit and tangerine begin the hop profile, fading mid palate to notes of resin, which carry into the fairly bitter finish. Grassy qualities emerge as it warms, along with pineapple in the aftertaste.

Body is moderate, with moderate carbonation and slight alcohol warmth.

Good malt backbone to carry the hops, which are fairly flavorful and not overly bitter. Citrus and resin are both well represented.
