12oz bottle to snifter. Had a aroma of strong citrus honey and sweet flowers. The apperance was a copper orange with a thin white head. It had a mild grapefruit, honey and citrus flavor.

Sleightly hazy brown with a medium bubbling light brown head. Strong aroma of grape with a mild mandarine background. Broad plesant bitterness that dries out in the finish with a subtle sweetness to back it up. Very clean and nice ipa.

Traded 12oz bottle. Pours a light bronze colour with a small off-white head and nice lacing. The aroma is sweet grapefruit hops and pineapple. Very nice citrus/orange flavour without overpowering bitterness. Dry finish that lasts a fair amount of time and has a little alcohol in it.

For an IPA there is very little bite, color looks great but the flavor is not there at all!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is pine oil and flowery perfume. Pale malts and woody-ness are harsh. Could use a little more balance in the nose.
The appearance is a hazy honey orange. Nice, fluffy head. Nice lacing.
Flavor is very much akin to perfume. Pale malts come off very dry. Nice woody hops. Dark and bready roasted malt.
Feels thick and slushy. Works for style, feels Imperial. It’s an East Coast IPA: woody and hefty and hop-heavy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoying this from a growler, pours reddish orange. Nice hop aromas, pine tree and grapefruit standing out, I’m also picking the same things in the taste, citrusy and hoppy. This is a really nice IPA.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Pours golden orange with an off-white head. Big, but well-balanced aroma of pineapple, tangerines, pine needles, and wet grass. Bitter hop flavor yet well-balanced for a not too intense experience. It’s still a hop lover’s delight but the balance is exceptional. Founder’s makes great beers and this is indeed one of them.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a not quite clear orange color with a very thin head, aroma of oranges, you can taste the hops in this one but they aren’t overpowering, there is a nice balance here, a slight bitter aftertaste reminds you that you’re drinking an IPA.
