On tap for the 4th Anniversary event at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus zest, citrus fruit, and malt. Taste is much the same with a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

A: Like an orange cloud floating in my glass

S: Is that citrus? Grapefruit perhaps? Inviting...

T: Bitter, hoppy, no surprises here.

M: Balanced, with some bitterness lingering. Not as smooth as other IPAs.

O: A good IPA, maybe a tad overrated. Will buy again.

Founders is probably one of the most reliably good brewers out there, so why do they keep blowing me away with their beers?

A: clear pale-to-medium amber beer with a quick 1-2 finger head that slims down into a sheen

S: rich, crisp, deep pine hoppiness sitting atop a hearty, earthy malt base

T: piney and resinous hops to start, more citrusy on the finish; nice robust malt profile, subtle sweetness

M: well-rounded, medium body, great aftertaste, super drinkable

O: sublime.
