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.

The aroma is hoppy with citrus, pine, and herbs. The malt is also there to balance it out. The appearance is hazy gold/orange with a large head. The flavor is like the aroma. Its simple but good. The palate is average for the style. Overall its a wonderful beer.

Thanks to MSante79 for this beer in the Tis The Season Locals Beer Swap. Pours a hazy golden color with a large foamy white head. Aroma is vanilla and strong and sweet citrus hops. Flavor is slightly bitter, remarkably light and very tasty. Mostly grapefruit with some sweetness flavors. Very good fresh hop ale!

mcmd (315) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 13, 2009
Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a nice white head which stays for the whole glass. Smells of fresh hops, newly mown grass, lemons, iced tea. Taste is fresh citrus hops with a nice malt backbone, refreshing palate. Love Founders, love this beer.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2009 Bottle.Wow A cloudy bright golden color with a huge fluffy offwhite head that lasts forever,lots of sheeting and sticky lace,lively carbonation.Aroma of hops,pine,lemon,lime rind,and a sweetness that changes from faint honey to old fashioned rock candy.I knew this beer existed but never knew or read much about it,so I had no expectations,other than Founders usually is VERY GOOD. This stuff blew me away. WoW a sort of a grainy ultra light toast,with a fat piny/citrus taste,a faint note of honey,very faint,crisp lively mouthfeel leaves your lips a little sticky. Super Ultra Good, The Bomb !

KawaBomber (218) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2009
12oz Bottle: Hazy orange with an insanely massive biege head that takes quite some time to recede. Aroma is divine, citrus and piney hops galore. Sweet malt up front then major grapefruit and resin flavors set in. Nice and smooth. Bitter, but not out of control bitter with a dry, smooth finish. Sweet, sticky aftertaste lingers on and on. Fantastic beer. Mmmmmm...

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Golden orange color with huge fluffy white head. Cloudy, can’t see through it. Huge aroma of citrus, flowers, and pine. Taste of grapefruit, lemon, and pine Medium bodied, crisp with nice carbonation, quite bitter. A nice example of the style.
