Draft. Smells like hops and citrus with a little stank. Very easy drinking IPA with a nice palate and a perfect amount of carbonation. Not a lot of depth to the flavor. Grapefruit and citrus. A good summer IPA.

Hazy IPA with hops but rounded out as a session. Bitter with hints of floral and pine. The finish is a lingering yeasty flavor.

Pale blond colour. Aromatic floral, perfumey hop aroma. Taste has light tartness and fruit sweetness. Moderate hoppy, bitter finish. Good balance.

Had it on tap at Moody’s Pub in Chicago. Pours a clear amber copper hue with a medium head. The aroma is a floral hop delight and the taste is solidly delicious bitter hop IPA.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Citrusy hops and their spicy greenness (very sage-like!) dally within a lean, bubbly mouthfeel brushed by lightly honeyed malts.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A fleeting head of foam finally settles atop the misty golden.
-The spicy hop profile is also reminiscent of citrusy thyme and lemongrass.
-The finish is relatively dry and just a tad bitter.
-Carbonation’s a bit too prickly for my tastes.
-This is the kind of brew the British have been doing extremely well for a while now. If you like this Founders’ brew, you should love most hoppy Golden Ales brewed in the UK.

Bottles.

A hazy golden beer with a small white head. The aroma is great, a lot of yeast and tropical fruit. The flavor is fruity with pine and resin. Easy drinking and delicious.
