3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured into tulip glass. Appearance is golden with an orange tint and very little head. Aroma is lovely citrus (grapefruit and tangerine) scent. Taste, however, is less citrus and more pine. The pine is actually a little overwhelming. Not a bad taste, but a bit disappointing after the wonderful aroma.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
