3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chilled 12 ounce bottle. It poured a nice golden body with a white head that had some retention and mild lacing. Aroma had a mild malt presence to it. Some light sweetness to it. Not quite a caramel sweetness, but more of a general sweetness. Hops were a different story. A nice blend of citrus hops and pine hops. There was a pleasant soap quality to it. Citrus hops seemed to dominate the aroma, but it was nowhere near over powering. Flavor had a little more sweetness from the malts but the hops seemed to have good balance as well. The citrus hops once again being the main focus. Mildly dry finish and it certainly would make a great session beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bière blonde à la robe cuivrée quasi sans col offrant un nez très fleuri citronné, un léger sirupeux, un amertume surette. En bouche la faible effervescence associée à un corps solidement malté légèrement sirupeux et biscuité donne une dégustation charnue qui a de la cuisse. Avec un palais gras et la langue suave, on a l’impression de manger du fruit mais sans pesanteur glucidique. Belle longueur amérisée en finale grâce à ce houblon citronné et herbacé à la fois. Plus une bière de dégustation, pour moi.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good to see this in cans, I poured this out into a 12 oz glass. Looks more IPA than APA, bright orange with a bit tan head. Citrus and crisp malt aromas. The flavor hits with a huge lime juice sensation. Feels a little thin, a hard-to avoid consequence of the lower abv. Finishes dry with lingering pine and citrus bitterness. Good to see a tasty craft beer brought down beneath the 5% abv level, all considered this is my favorite of Founders’ hoppy beers.

Keg in the Bridge Inn, Newcastle. Pours amber with a small white head. A good blast of tropical fruit with grapefruit notes. Very tasty for the strength. Served a little cold to really appreciate it, but it was good and refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Translucent bubbly amber-gold with almost no head or legs. Smells very nice, juicy fruit and orange peel. Taste is orange and light bitter hops. Nice amount of carbonation though too watery for my liking, but it is a session IPA. Almost like a hopped orange juice.

Bubbly light amber pour. Smells very fruity and hoppy. Taste is light and floral hops with light body and lots of carbonation - not my favorite but I guess that's session IPAs.

Bottle. Trade With Theydon_Bois. Thanks. Pours Dark Golden With a Very small White head. Nose is hoppy citrus and bread. Crisp dry citrussy and grassy hop flavor. A bit thin body. Quite quaffable and tasty. Reminds me a bit of Brewdogs punk IPA.
