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.

TURDFERGUSON (4008) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 10, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2010 2010 batch. Re-rate. Glowing clear and bright orange amber with a nice sized whit head. Bursting hop nose of tropical fruits, citrus, pine. Very delicious semi-sweet, moderately bitter flavor. Great balance. Much better after you’ve had two of them. I don’t mean that to say that I’m drunk and that’s why it tastes better. But that it takes a few good sized samples to really grasp what a beer is all about. This beer is all about goodness. I need another 4 pack. I don’t do that averaging old rating with new rating bullshit. This is the best pale ale i’ve had from founders. yum. ================================================ batch. Man, this was definitely a hot item at my local bottle shop. Wish I could have gotten more for trading purposes. Pours a a glowing orange with a small white head. Nose of wet hops. piney and citrus. Flavor of fresh hops, but a bit watered down in the palate even when fresh. Pretty good ipa, but honestly, i was expecting more.

12 oz bottle. Light orante in color with a very big off white head, very active carbonation. Aroma of citrus hops, maybe getting a little past it’s prime. Taste is hoppy- citrus, but they are getting a bit dull. Body is light to medium, with aggressive carbonation on the palate.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Fresh 2008 bottle. Pours a hazy, glowing, golden-orange amber color. A massive, foamy, off-white head settles slowly to a patchy, well-retained blanket. Random, cloud-like patches of lace mark the glass. Wow, does this thing ever smell fresh. Massive citrus hop notes infiltrate the nose, everything from grapefruit juice to orange zest, lemon rind and kaffir lime leaves. There’s a very light, almost neutral, grainy background with just a hint of toffee sweetness, but make no mistake, this one is all about the wet hops. Flavors show more of the same, bold, fresh citrus hop notes dominating a lightly sweet, toffee and grain base. The mouthfeel is medium-full and balanced, finishing on the dry, resinous side. There’s nothing fancy going on here, this brew is just tasty as hell and unapologetically hoppy, without being unbalanced. If this was local to me, I’d buy it by the truckload after each harvest. Great beer.

Only short posts? Citrus, light fruit, very smooth hops. Good. A little over-carbonated.

yellowish amber pour, very floral scent. lots of piney hop flavor, likely Cascade, but I may be wrong. rather high head. good carbonation, and quite floral. not bad.
