3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle to a New Belgium Globe
Aroma: Pine, citrus, the usual hop characters you would expect. A very minimal hint of toast character.
Appearance: Amber, slighlty cloudy, minimal head, and no lacing.
Taste: Medium bitterness, not overpowering at all. I
Palate: A light body, slightly oily, yet thin. Average carbonation, with a quick dry finish.
O: For what Founders was probably aiming for with this; they nailed it. It’s an enjoyable, flavorful IPA, that doesn’t overpower you. I liked it.

Seems pretty classic IPA. Relatively peppery. Pretty wet on the tongue. Light? Slight nuttiness.

from Bier-Bienne - cloudy dark orange beer with a long lasting foam left; fruity hoppy aroma of peaches and apricot; medium-bodied; subtle yet fairly carbonated, tasty and assertive; dry and fairly bitter with a long fruity hoppy finish

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light amber with medium off-white head. Big west coast aroma with loads of tropical fruits, mango, tangerine, some herbs and grassy scents. The palate is pretty light bodied, which I guess is to be expected. The bitterness is rather moderate and perfectly in balance with the body. The finish is rather long.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Can pours a dirty light orange haze with next to no head or lace, light carb.
S: Only pine but beer is very cold. Not much developed as drunk.
T: Hops are more subtle than the nose but pronounced. Piney and slightly sticky. Light but flavorful.
M: Again, light and slightly sticky/oily. Pretty clean overall though and pretty good too.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Leans much more to hoppy and bitter rather than fruity and crisp. Super easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours light golden-orange into the glass, with a wispy head that leaves soapy lacing. The nose is nice, of barnyard accents along with pine notes. Flavors have bright citrus, lemon-orange-grapefruit, alongside some hay grainy notes, finishing with light pepper. The mouthfeel just edges the medium embodiment, with an active palate ensuing. Very nice for a session IPA. Substantive, yet light enough to keep one’s judgment acute.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has a nice hoppy taste with a very subtle fruitiness to it. Could stand to be a little crisper, but all around pretty good.
