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.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Plucier: Poured a cloudy hazy golden color ale with a huge white foamy head with perfect retention and no lacing. Aroma of bitter and citrus hops with some interesting floral notes. Taste is a mix between some floral hops notes with a bitter and citrus finish with some malt presence. Full body with limited filtration and good carbonation. Another fine ale from a brewer who consistently amaze me.

Lothore (550) - California, USA - APR 26, 2008
A- Pours a golden orange with a very small head and quite a bit of visible carbonation. S- Smell is sweet malt, piney hops, hints of citrusey grapefruit. T- Taste is very non abrasive, starts off sweet and malty, has a sharp middle and ends with a slight hop bitterness. The malt overrides the hops in this one but you are left with a nice hop finish. M- Medium viscosity, ample carbonation, crisp. D- This could be an easy session beer. This is the second beer i’ve had from founders and the second one I enjoyed.

patrick767 (3571) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 25, 2008
bottle - Pours cloudy gold with a one finger white head. It has a good citrus hop aroma. The flavor is of caramel malt and aggressive, well balanced, citrus and pine accented hops. This medium bodied brews neds in a lingering hops finish. Good quaff.

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2008
12oz bottle acquired in trade with ogglethorp (thanks!). Initially poured a medium and clear golden color with a larger sized off white head. Towards the middle and especially the bottom, it grew hazier and deeper with lots of suspended floaters. Initial appearance would have been a 3 but I’ll rate on the later. Aromas of citrus, toasted malts, and lightly floral. Tastes of citrus, caramel, and fruity. Some lacing left on the glass.

tompete (211) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2008
Bottle. Solid cloudy orange color in the glass with a fine white head. Perfect spicy hop nose, but not overpowering. Medium body. Flavor also was hoppy with a balance more towards the sweetness of the malt. Finished slightly sweet. Well balanced, I could continue drinking without being overwhelmed by the sweetness.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2008
A hazy gold beer with rocky snow white head that lasted for some time. Generic hop aroma with faint malt sweetness. Bitter hop body with a faint and unintrusive malt sweetness for balance. Most excellent.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2008
Pours a clear golden color with a thin white head. Aroma dominated by hops but with a nice touch of malt. Flavor dominated initially by intensely bitter hops up front well balanced by a nice maltiness. Crisp and very drinkable.

jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAR 11, 2008
This is the best Pale Ale I’ve ever had. IT was so perfectly balanced between malt and hops. Extremely drinkable, fresh, crisp, and delicious. I’m always on the lookout for a good apa, and this is one you must try.

kyzr (1152) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Bottle thanks to CaptainCougar. Dark gold with huge white head. Fresh grassy, hoppy and citrus nose. Flavor is much the same, with a mild malty and bitter finish. Really smooth texture with not too much of hop.
