Founders is my new favorite brewery. This IPA is a wonderful tasting beer with piney, malty dry-hopped goodness.

Bottle at O’Learys, Copenhagen airport. Pours amber, cloudy with little head. Aroma of bread, citrus. Tastes quite sweet, little bitterness. First non-lager beer I had after one week in Greece - happy!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I agree with the comments that this is a
Smooth ipa. And if a smooth ipa is what you are looking for, this is your beer. Nice aroma, pours a nice dark orange color, but the malt presence is a bit too heavy for my tastes. I prefer my beer lighter on the malt and more bitter. And hop forward . This IPA is not bitter. Nothing wrong with this ipa, just A matter of taste.

Det ska mycket till för att misslyckas med den här typen av IPA. I USA går det 13 på dussinet. Och samma sak gäller för det här betyget, så förutsägbart är det.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lovely pour and colour in the glass and crystal clear.
Aroma is sweet malt some pine and citrus not big.
Thick full on the tongue and nicely balanced for the IBUs doesn’t appear overly bitter.
Tasta, malty some happiness.
Overall I suspect (no date on bottle) this has suffered on the shelf and lost its full hop aspects, but still a good beer.

Old rating. Just an excellent down the middle IPA. Hazy orange. Citrus and floral hops with a mid-level malty base. Crisp, delicious.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy, darker amber color, topped with lots of cream colored creamy head with decent retention. Malty aroma, caramel and biscuity, some resin perhaps. In the back some fruity notes. Taste is sweet and fruity, slightly spicy in the finish with moderate bitterness. Lasting herbal aftertaste.
