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.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JAN 6, 2008
bottle courtesy of ucusty. pours a pale orange color with a rocky white head. the aroma is candy coated hops... earth, grapefruit, orange and pine hops mixed with light caramel. the flavor is pretty much the same with a dry citrusy/acidic finish. bitter citrus aftertaste. medium body and mouth feel. nice, but a bit sweet since a lot of the hoppiness is aromatic and not teeth numbing

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Poured a hazy very lighy gold with a fully lasting white head. The aroma has light notes of oranges, yeast and semi-sweet malt. The flavor has both sweet orange and citrus orange but both are light. Some semi-sweet malt. Dry finish with a light hop flavor and bitterness. Light body.

brentfeesh (1207) - Gadsden, Alabama, USA - JAN 2, 2008
12 oz bottle. Hazy onion skin with a light head and moderate carbonation. The aroma has bright grapefruit and fresh orange peal. Perhaps some lemon as well. Hands down fresh! The taste of wet hopped beers seems similar to me in that they have such a smooth hop profile. This is quite good as I expected. Clean, balanced hops that have plenty of pine and citrus in almost equal amounts. Pineapple, lime, and pine. The malt is present but delicate, which allows the hops to stand out. Medium body and a semi-dry finish. Good stuff.

5000 (6029) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle: Vibrant straw, while remaining very hazy, large frothy white head, sticky lacing.   Pine resin and hops on the nose.   Smells... fresh!   Smooth on the tongue, very smooth.   Subtle hop presense, some citrus peel, very minor, along with even minor pine.   Clean, super duper clean.   Lingers in the back of the mouth, but not so much on the tongue.   Bitterness is very subtle, making this one very easy to kill quickly, too quickly.   7% ABV is well hidden.   This one is even a little dry.   Good body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, as creamy as one can usually get for a good Pale Ale.   Very minor citrus peel lingers.   Good stuff, just a notch above Bridgeports Hop Harvest me thinks because of its cleaniness and body/mouthfeel.   Both great beers.   Mucho thanks to Styles for the trade!

Light color and light on the palate. Fresh green hop aroma. Almost has a hint of white grape juice in the flavor too. Nice.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Another delicious offering from Founder’s. A really well balanced "wet" beer with fresh hops abound. Try this beer when it is in season!

lamas (1324) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Bottle courtesy of agl108. Pours a hazy copper with TONS of little floaties and a minimal tan head on top. Rich, grapefruity aroma that features plenty of malts to even things out. Tastes equally well-balanced. Medium to thin-bodied. A nice caramel backbone with oranges and grapefruit flavors upfront. Solid and satisfying.

wj94 (69) - Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Courtesy of Secret Santa ’07. Lives up to the hype....great drinkability. Pours hazy orange color with more-than-average head. Smells of piney/citrus hops and tastes just the way it smells, but perfectly balanced and could easily down a 6-pack of this. Thanks Santa!

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Pours a light golden color with a nice inch of head. Smell is nice "green" hops. Plenty of the citrusy and some piney hops. Taste is much the same, but this beer is incredibly balanced and a real smooth drinker. Refreshing and an easy drinker. This is a good beer.

ChainGangGuy (4281) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2007
Appearance: Pours an effervescent, deep yellow body with a lush, foamy (and lasting) white head. Smell: Soapy, citric-smelling hop aroma with notes of tropical citrus fruits. Taste: You don’t get more than a pinch of malts before the hops kick in with tropical fruity flavors and bittersweet ruby red grapefruit juice. Moderate bitterness with a citric sting that lasts into the finish. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Drinkability: A decent beer, just notr my favorite of the harvest ales.
