daknole (8539) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2012
Pours a gold/orange color, white head. Load of citrusy hops, resin, herbal notes and some caramel malts. Flavor is really nice...juicy citrus hops and malt meld very well together. A very easy drinking IPA!

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Bottle @ home, courtesy of drfabulous. Thanks Jeff!! A touch hazy, golden orange appearance with a white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Big resiny, piney, ganja, clean pale malty aroma. Tangy, fairly bitter, ganja/resiny hoppy flavor with a sticky, piney finish.

Pale golden pour with a thick white head. The aroma is lean and zesty - a bit of pine and orange zest with a bit of lingering earthy/minerally flavour. Lovely and lean with a great drinkability.

Drake (7944) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market North Raleigh and shared at the Baltimore Irish Chanukah tasting, 3/17/12. Pours a clear golden color with a thin fizzy off-white head. Decent retention. Aroma of herbal, floral hops and bready malts. The taste is bitter hops, bready slightly toasted malts. Medium bodied, quite drinkable.

355mL as "All Day IPA" thanks to mikem409. Super fresh bottle consumed two weeks after bottling! Pours clear, correctly filtered and non bottle conditioned orangish gold with lower carbonation and a medium, white, rocky head. Suddy lace. Nose is fresh orange juice, light mango, Valencia orange, sweet mangosteen, lemon zest, herbal hops, candied tamarind. Mild waffle and pancake sugary malt quality. Taste is quit old school- rich biscuity and full with faux diacetyl ending with sharp, herbal hops and juicy orange. No true diacetyl. Finish is super clean and light with hints of herbal soapiness and quenching saltwater. So good for 4.7% and bonus points for that. My sick girlfriend said it tasted like "grandmaís biscuits with hops." Terrific session beer. Thank the lord for this!

leaparsons (7798) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle. Orange gold with a diminishing foam. Aromas are pineapple and grapefruit with toast malts and yeast. Spicy with lemon and candy sugar. Floral with grain and citrus rind. Flavours are trtropical fruit with bitter lemon and grapefruit. Biscuit and low brown sugar with caramel. Quite herbal, spicy and fruity. Simple yet effective.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2013 bottle. pale malt body with a white head. bright dried fruit and resin hop nose, very much like citra and simcoe. a bit of cheese rind and BO must at play as well. the body is wonderfully dry, carbonation soft, hop acid tingly, zesty, fresh and vibrant. maybe a bit over-hopped for itís size but thatís a minor complaint given how soft, floral, fruity and well-integrated the hops are with the pale malt. delicious beginning to end. Re-rate: husky, resinous, messy. Disappointing.

Growler as Founderís All Day IPA thanks to womencantsail. Pours with a clear old body with a smallish off-white head. Aroma is huge, big time grapefruit and citrus hop character. Lightly dank. Minimal malt. Clean. Flavors of tea, grapefruit, tangerine. Fruity, bready, estery. Lively bubbles. Dry. A bit of papaya on the back end. Quite well done!

MartinT (7523) - 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.
-Carbonationís 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 Foundersí brew, you should love most hoppy Golden Ales brewed in the UK.
