4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 In short: A very flavourful and refreshing Pale Ale with focus on orange/citrus.
How: 12oz bottle drank with a few weeks after receiving it from drewbeerme, thanks a lot Andrew.
The look: Cloudy blonde-orangey body with a very small white head
In long: A lot of orange and citrus on the nose. Taste is more of the same with lots of orange and citrus, some grapefruit, a little pine needles, a lick of vanilla. Surprisingly yeasty. Fluffy mouthfeel. The malt profile is rather shy flavourwise. Not much caramel or anything like that although the beer is still a little sweet. This is drinkable very in large quantities. How can anybody not like such a refreshing flavourful beer is like quantum mechanic and women reasoning, I just don’t understand it.

Bottle courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with lots of bubbles and a large slowly-diminishing frothy off-white head. Nice hoppy aroma , slightly sweet along with some citrus and sweet malt. Delicious citrus hops flavour with a hint of spices, alcohol’s totally hidden, so pleasant and easy to drink. Medium bodied. I could drink 6 of these in a row -- I love it

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Another delicious offering from Founder’s. A really well balanced "wet" beer with fresh hops abound. Try this beer when it is in season!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!
