COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This liquid dream pours a hazy golden orange straw color with a large puffy white two-finger head. First sip of this beer rewards with a super juicy hop presence bursting with fresh orange and lemon citrus then continues to introduce toasted malt undertones.

Juicy citrus notes with sharp pine and subtle caramel on the nose. Slightly hazy, dull gold with a fairly fading white head. Dry, bitter, and citrusy, a little metallic. Light-medium bodied, well carbonated, and finishes with lingering fresh fruity hops.

Bottle thanks to umich43jm. Pours golden orange with an off white head that falls quickly. Amazing sweet aroma of tropical fruit, pineapple, orange. Flavor follows aroma, with lots of tropical fruit over a sweet malt backbone, then finishes with resin hop and a bot of oil. A touch of soap on the finish keeps this from being perfect, but it’s still a great drinker.

Chuckaduck (624) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Bottled 10/2/13. Poured 11/26/13. Translucent straw-gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is orange and lemon citrus, grass, vanilla, summer leaves, fresh hops, some alcohol burn, touch of berries; fantastic, smells like a small barleywine. Taste is earthy, grassy, some resin, spicy, lemon citrus, some toasty malt sweetness; finish is long fruit rind bitterness with a touch of resin. Lacing is fairly thick and throughout. Mouth feel is wet and slick; not particularly chewy. Medium-bodied. Medium-low carbonation. Really nice, flavorful and drinkable wet-hopped ale. Nice.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Dirty straw color, clean, with nice puffy head. Big citrusy aroma. Great citrus flavor, a bit chewy, medium body. Slightly bitter at the finish, but then finishes more sweet. Very drinkable, would like to drink side by side with an All Day... body of this is heavier, more resiny, but similar citrus intensity. This is a great beer.

Not my favourite offering from founders- usually am more impressed by their brews. However, tis the season for the wet hop so thought I would give it a try. Pours pretty golden for an IPA with no head to speak of. Pretty light on the palate and the hops are there, but would not have guessed 70 IBUs- perhaps the wet hop is that much more subtle. Decently balanced, citrusy, sweet, malty- a decent brew just have come to expect more from Founders. Got in a bottle at Zilies.

Bottle to glass. Pours a beautifully clear golden color with a solid white head. Aroma is packed full of fresh grassy floral hops. Taste is moderately bitter, with an earthy grassy kick. Light in body and very drinkable. Lingering bitterness in the finish. Another Founder’s win.

Petite bouteille offerte par Patrick. Embouteillée le 3 octobre 2013 (peint sur la bouteille). Une bière dorée avec une mousse blanche épaisse. Le nez est fort en houblons, des houblons herbeux, des épices et un malt bien présent. En bouche les 70 IBU se font sentir, l’amertume est bien présente. Les saveurs de malt et de houblons frais se mélangent à merveille. Une belle concoction à boire fraîche mais il faut tout de même faire attention à ses 7,6% d’alcool.
