Ughsmash (7159) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Bottled. Poured clear, lighter golden with a short, white head. The aroma picked up grassy and citrusy hops over soft bready malts.. aiight. The flavor found bitter floral and orange zesty bitterness over dry pale and bready notes.. finished dry and tangy. Light-bodied and tangy on the palate. . Ok feel and flow.

Beerdedone (2673) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours golden orange with a decent white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, floral and grapefruit. Flavor was lightly sweet and bitter with pine needles, sweet pale malts, grapefruit, citrus, light lemon and had a hint of caramel. Medium body, crisp carbonation, dry bitter finish.

martjoobolut (818) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 30, 2014
0,355L bottle, BB 18.04.2015. Pours dark golden with off-white head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is fruity, citrus, grass, malt, passion fruit. Flavor is citrus, grapefruit, malt, biscuits. Finish is dry grapefruit bitter. Body is rather thin. Overall: it’s almost a great beer, but something is missing. I would also prefer more body.

Hopmaestro (110) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
The aroma is as expected from a IPA, grassy, grapefruit, citrus. And the taste delivers with a pretty light body, but also well balanced with a nice hoppy aftertaste. It is not overly bitter, and you just take sip after sip.

phikus (59) - syracuse, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2014
The first and IMO the worst of the hop water trend taking over the market. Totally unbalanced but still better than the fizzy yellow stuff.

eduardovl (891) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 28, 2014
330ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow colour forming a big bubbled white head with medium to low retention. Tons of lingering lacings are formed and left in the glass. S: Very malty and grassy. Strong (and delicious notes) of sweet pale malts and tropical fruits. Strong notes of green mango! Notes of herby and grassy malts, oranges and grapefruit. T: Slightly sweet upfront. VERY Crispy! Strong notes of pale malts and citrus fruits. In overall, a quite dry taste followed by citrus and herby hops. Strong notes of green mangos. Medium and balanced hops bitterness. Very refreshing and smooth. M: Very light body. Good carbonation. Malty, bready and grassy aftertaste O: Great drinkability. Just another Founders classic Ale, no mistake here.

Pours a clear, deep golden with a medium fluffy/creamy head. Very pleasant aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, grass and peach. Taste is well balanced, a little sweet at first then finishes just a bit bitter. Crisp on the palate with avg co2. Highly drinkable and refreshing!

Koperkleurige session ipa met een mooie volle schuimkraag. Ruikt naar hop en sinasappel. Veel smaak voor zo weinig alcohol.

JorgeLee (1230) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle at Byron. Quite amber colour, very fizzy. Quite hoppy, pine and grapefruit. Brief finish. Body is a bit thin and sweet. It’s fine, tastes nice enough, it’s an average American style pale ale. Too much alcohol, too fizzy, too thin and one dimensional to be a good session beer though.
