Was a little uncertain about this beer the first time around, but, after drinking some of my favorite IPAís and returning to this one, I realize how much I liked this beer. Good fruity, grassy nose, with a smooth bitterness. Great beer!!

First time drinking a Founders! I had never been able to find it, but during a trip to New Jersey it appeared at a local Bottle King. Pours a golden/copper slightly hazy color with a healthy head that stick around. Lacing is very nice. Aroma is hoppy/malty. Flavor has light carmel and citrus tones. A very solid brew!

I have had a couple beers from Founders, and it seems to be a pretty solid company. This one claims 65 IBUís and I can believe it. It has good hop flavor, but it also hits you with a ton of bitterness. The nose is grapefruit/citrus. You know what you are getting into when you sniff this one. There is a good dose of malt that balances out, a very solid brew

Pours a light amber with a thick white head. Pine and citrus hops on the nose with sliight hints of spice. Flavor of piney hops and orange peel with a nice roasted malt balance. Lingering piney aftertaste that makes you want more; very drinkable. An excellent American IPA.

Represents Grand Rapids well. Appearance in glass is light-med amber. Combine the heavy hoppy aroma with the bitter sweet flavor and its a great experience.

Bottle - Medium amber 2 finger frothy tan head. Nose of sweet hops. Taste - Wow, thoroughly impressed with this one. Possibly the smoothest IPA Iíve ever had. Aftertaste lingers with a strong taste of pine and hops. This is an A+ IPA. Absolutely the only issue I have with this beer is the twist off cap.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours a dark golden (but clear) color with a medium-small head. Aroma is sweet malts, with a nice dose of hops. Flavor is a mild, well balanced beverage - carefully interweaving a fully bodied hop character with a nice, sweet malt body. Not overtly hoppy. Contains a decent, and fine finish that isnít too bitter, not not too mild as well.
