Pours a clear amber with a foamy white head. Smells of grapefruit, pine, hint of baked bread in malts. Taste is bitter and moderately sweet - spruce and citrus hops with a mild malt backing.

Excellent beer for all day sessions! You get the taste of a great well made IPA with the added benefit of keeping your head straight even after having a few.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle over lunch on offer at an unassuming café in Wahroonga, Sydney
Golden beer, holds a good white foam.
Nice hop drive aroma; pine, citrus, light caramel malts.
Medium bodied, full carbonation, nice malt texture,
Plenty to offer on the body. Good malt backbone, biscuity, lightly toasted malts pave way for plenty of cedar/pine, grapefruit and spice from hops. Finishes with a firm, but certainly not aggressive bitterness. Begs another sip.
Not sure what this "session IPA" fad is all about, but certainly a tasty APA. Highly drinkable. Good to see Founders beers making an appearance down here, even in little cafés, where one would usually order a wine because the beer list would usually be dreadful...times are a changing!

Bottle from Glug, Newcastle. This pale golden beer has sweet tropical fruit and juicy orange marmalade flavours with a sweet light fruity and pine finish. Excellent!

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copperish, clear and bubbly beer with a very small head. Sweet and fruity aroma, mango, persimon. Quite bland tasting at first. Little grassiness. Not a lot of crispiness even if it has so many bubbles. Quite thin. Better than average market beer or ale. There is some bitterness but it still manages to be a little bland and watery.
