12oz can from a 15-pack (camping beer!). The description says that this is the beer I have been waiting for and it is correct. I hardly think I am alone in wishing for a flavorful IPA with half the alcohol of their full-powered cousins. Summer is about having adventures and not about being passed out in the hammock from one-too-many beers. This one is a bright and clear orange color with a thin white head. Aroma is juicy and bitter hops. The flavors are clean, refreshing, bitter, and plentiful. This is a uncompromised beer. I wonder how low the alcohol can go before I start to feel cheated?

Pours a clear golden orange with a soft foam head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is hop driven with citrus, mild pine, resinous, minor yeast scent, and a pleasant crisp malty tone. Tasting, I picked on moderate bitterness, defined pale malt flavor, and there was a mild citrus taste. This was a very well rounded beverage. The finish has a soft but pleasant bitterness that lingers. Overall I enjoyed this, it is a very drinkable beverage. Founders did exactly as they extended to do. I put an honest day of work in and it was a treat to unwind to this brew.

@ Havregatan. Flaska 355 ml) från Kihoskh, Köpenhamn (27 DKK). Aromen var först väldigt fruktig och humlig med grapefrukt, men den försvann ganska fort. Även smaken är fruktig med grapefrukt, även en aning maltig, tydlig beska, medelfyllig. Avslutningen är lång, torr och besk.

12oz bottle from a Wegman’s in Buffalo, NY. An amber pour with a billowing off-white head; piney, fruity, west coast hop aroma; in the mouth there’s a good balance between the malts and the rather vigorous hops; leading to a crisp grapefruity finish. I could certainly drink this all day.
