12 oz pour from refrigerated bomber into stemmed tulip. Moderate head, nice lacing. Opaque, light orange, hazy. Lots of citrus up front. Nose is citrus and candy. Taste is citrus fruit. Fairly layered. I actually like this quite a bit, but somehow the aggregate ended up fairly low.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate malt aroma of roasted, heavy pine and grapefruit peel for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with notes of coriander and alcohol. Head is small, frothy, white with fair lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is slightly hazy medium amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and heavily bitter. Palate is medium to full, syrupy with a soft to lively carbonation and a lightly to moderately alcoholic finish. A sweet and syrupy, slow drinking Strong Pale Lager.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a good lively head. Aroma is pine, resin, very floral bitter hops, fruits, orange, lemon, then caramel and toffee. Taste is caramel, toffee, butter richness, hoppy, floral, bitter, then sweeter fruit, like orange juice. Overall very impressive for a lager brewed by an ale centered brewery.

Cloudy hay colored. Light white head. Aroma of melon, light tobacco, citrus. A bit like a fruity cigarillo. Quite bitter, decently sweet, caramel. Medium body, quite oily. Alcohol is present, not overpowering. Acidic, fairly low amount of carbonation. Very good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2/20 Bottle - Nice solid golden clean pour with a clean white head. Smelled of orange, lemon, and fruity hops. Tasted somewhat bitter, hoppy which I enjoyed it a lot. Higher carbonation than expected, it good drinking. The beer felt stronger/ more intense afterward than I expected based on the ABV, but clean taste and smooth going down. This is another very good offering by Founders, and I look forward to more pours of this and other offerings down the road

Resin, floral, herbs cleanly wrapped up in a hop forward complex lager. What’s not to like.

A clear golden orange 1 finger head but fades fast. Very english smelling nose. sweet nose as well. Very bitter, insanely bitter. almost sticks to my teeth . Hard to finish the glass. Nice mouthfeel. medium body hoppy finish. too intense for me.
