On tap at Founders. Hoppy and grassy aroma within a golden color and nice head. Initial intense hop flavor with excellent aftertaste. Keeps you wanting ’just one more’. Refreshing and enjoyable.

Pours a cloudy golden hue with a minimal white head. Fresh, crisp floral nose is met with a clean, easy drinking body. A nice amount of hops, great for an everyday pale ale. Nice example of the style.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Volcanic, massive, milkshake thick head made up of medium sized bubbles which do not go away. Neverending sticky lace. Golden clear pour with lots of sediment in the bottle. Floral aroma with a little citrus. Bitter on the front with an expanding warmness that fills the mouth with joy. This beer gets better as I get into it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a copper color from 12oz bottle to pint glass. Little head and practicaly no lacing. Smell is mild pine hops with a very mild carmel malt behind it. Taste is primarily piney hops with a touch of grapefruit and very mild sweetness from the malts. Very dry, bitter finish. More bitter than most APAs. Light mouthfeel. A little too much unbalanced bitters for me. Drinkability suffers from the bitterness. Good, not great APA. Great value at $1.25.
