Pours a nice light gold color with mild haze to it. the foam is lite airy white that seemed to disapate kinda quick for me, but still left a nice lace in glass.
As for aroma...very nice tropical flowery fruits along with a nice hops scent. The taste was nice and crisp with the same fruity hoppy flair to it with a somewhat dry bitter finish.
A very drinkable & refreshing brew for single mosaic hops. Will be having this again!!!

Founders never disappoints. Quite good. Bubbly burnished gold, taste of light citrus especially grapefruit. Sparky mouthfeel, overall very good.

I would put this in the top 5 worst beers I have ever had. The bright spot....this one presented and confirmed my aversion to Mosaic hops.

355 ml bottle served cold into a pint glass. 6 pack was around $14 CDN.

Appearance - Pours a rich and ruddy bronze colored brew. Plenty of haze and a decent finger and a half of off-white head rests on top last a medium duration.

Smell - Leafy hops and a flowery aspect are most prominent with subtle tropical notes as well as some earthy hops. Faint grainy aromas complement the smell.

Taste - Similar to the nose, plenty of leafy hops, a little weedy and suggestions of orange and grapefruit. Biscuity malt notes back the citrus and floral flavors.

Mouthfeel- Medium body and modest carbonation, pretty easy drinking with a dry finish.

Overall - A fine APA, that i was happy to enjoy, however don't quite see the love it gets here. Still a pretty solid example of the style.

Slightly hazy golden, big head that leaves a curtain of lace.

Grapefruit, orange rind, biscuity malt in the nose

Lemon, orange rind, rye bread, green pepper, black pepper. Mild sweet pleasant flavor but enough going on to be interesting.

Smooth and drinkable.

Real drinkable APA, will come back to this if I see it again.

Draft at PreFunk. Clear golden, small but lasting head. Mild hoppy aroma, taste brings a bit more hop bitterness, oily and potent. Very smooth, velvety .

Pours a light golden coloration with a medium, fizzy head. Smells is quite fresh, floral and hoppy, with just a tad of biscuity malt coming through. Notes of citrus and tropical fruits: tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple and passion fruit. Taste follows the nose, with a floral, hoppy, fresh, zesty flavour supported by just a hint of biscuity malt. Notes of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple and passion fruit, with a light, dry bitterness coming through in the aftertaste. Very pleasant, but unspectacular IPA with a nice balance of citrus and tropical fruit and a nice, inoffensive bitterness.

Fantastic aroma! On the same bandwidth as Ballast Point Sculpin, way lighter and way more affordable. Could be one of my go to beers.

Bottle - pours a hazed honey gold with a 1 finger white meringue cap that reduces to a surface lace and lasts, lacing the glass side....aroma- one of the most pleasant I have experienced in crafted IPAs - pungent floral exotic fruit tones over some cinnamon bread notes. Flavor is lightly complex with yeast phenols battling with hop fusions for dominance ...moderate wet finish with lots of flavor amalgams chewing away at the plate...going to a lightly bitter dry finish - very excellent brew for a bottle product,
