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.

Ok I admit it. I have been on a diet for 6 weeks and have not had a beer in that entire time. As such this rating might be too high as this things taste like necter of the gods :). ARoma is nice, floral hop aroma. Taste is well balanced, good malt backbone. slightly sweeter than I had thought but nice. Palate is excellent for a pale ale and overall a very good effort. Taste bigger than its 6,2 alcohol rating as well.

Its alright. The floral hops dont have enough aroma to really wrap your nose around. But it is an easy drinking and tasteful Pale ale.

Bottle. Fruity aroma and a medium head that dissipated rapidly. The flavor and feel were a bit on the pine and resin side but what mostly showed through was the hoppy bitterness. In terms of APA’s it was pretty good.

Draught: Aroma of bready malts and citrus hops. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, creamy, off-white head that shrank but lasted throughout. Great lacing. Hazy. Sparkling. Flavors of bready and caramel malts as well as citrus hops. Medium body. Thin, watery texture. Average carbonation. Strange, water-like finish. Overall, disappointing for Founders.

(Bottle) Pours a hazy amber color with a nice sized white head and decent lacing. Fragrant aroma of hops. Taste includes grapefruit, a hint of pine, floral and earthy notes. Solid body and good balance. One of the better APAs I’ve had recently.

egajdzis (5358) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2007
[Draft @ Capone’s] Poured a lightly hazy, orange amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus fruits, light pine, and a bit of toast as well. Taste of citrus, light tobacco, a bit of nuts, pine, toffee, more toasted malts, and an average mouthfeel.

jcr (2220) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 21, 2007
Light orange, slightly hazy body with huge white head. Grapefruit, pine and biscuit nose. Flavor is moderately sweet and moderately bitter. They are nicely woven together so that there isn’t much watery texture between one taste and the other. Lively carbonation — in fact, a tad too much carbonation which results in a fizzy mouthfeel. Medium body. Finish is mostly hops. Thought this was a comfortable beer, certainly more muted than many APAs.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Clear amber pour, medium lasting off white head, fair lace. Pine , orange peel, grain in the aroma. Medium body, slightly resinous, clean mouthfeel, light carbonation. Malty, with some sweet nuttiniess, substantial grapefruit bitterness that comes on quickly and lingers.
