COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A testament to Cascade hops in a bottle. This medium-bodied pale ale has a distinctive floral hop aroma and refreshing citrus flavor. You’ll notice a slight malty sweetness with a balanced hop finish. Perfect to enjoy anytime, anywhere.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2007
12 oz bottle. Copper colored pour, decent sized white head, and some floaties in there. Floral hop aroma. Citrusy hop flavor with some sweetness in there as well. Just enough malt to back up the hops. Lots of carbonation makes the finish pretty lively. Good session beer for sure.

agl108 (765) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2007
12 oz. bottle at Flat Rock Saloon. Poured hazy orangish gold with just the slightest of lacing. Citrusy, hoppy flavor. Very crisp and smooth. A nice session pale ale; easy drinking.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Coopers Seafood House in Scranton, PA bottle. For an IPA it seems relatively flawless with oatmeal and citrus flavors with some barley and rye thrown into the hoppy mix. It is a bit bittersweet in the aftertaste with an almost slight amaretto feel but its not a bad beer except for some chalkiness in there.

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Pour is golden with a huge rocky white head with plenty of lacing. Very attractive. Big fresh aroma of grass and dry hops. The flavor is surprisingly sweet. Sweet and nice clean hop background. Very interesting and different. Excellent.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with thin head. Aroma is full of floral, grassy hops. Well balanced flavor with citrus hops and caramel malts. Very nice APA. A great easy drinking session beer.

chicagobears (411) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Pours a golden brown color with a short lived white head. Aroma is of Cascade hops and a bit of caramel. The taste of the dry hops sticks out right away. Has some citrus, pine, and caramel. This has a firm body that you can almost chew. This is actually better than I thought it would be. I will have to seek out more Founder’s.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Amber color with a medium head. Aroma is a nice mix of bread and some grassy-floral hops. Taste was much the same - medium malt flavor mixing well with floral-grassy hops. Overall, a solid APA.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 3, 2007
Cloudy gold, Big Rocky Beige head. Floral, resiny hopa aroma coupled with just a touch of sweet malt. Nicely thin bodied. Hint of caramel, but not too much. The finish is resiny hops, with a slight metallic flavor, which is not wholly unpleasent. Crisp finish.

Sampled at a gathering of TN Ratebeerians a couple months ago; thanks to decaturstevo. Hazy pale orange with a white head that diminishes to a dusting. Faint but flowery hop smell. Feel is fizzy and bitey, thin. Really, there’s not much here: some fruity hops on the end, and some grassy character in the middle, with some fizzy bitterness on the finish, but there’s not much finish to speak of. More like beer-ish water than beer.
