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.

Founders dry hopped pale ale. Big foamy head even with a gentle pour. There is gunk on the bottom of the bottle, just like a good unfiltered wheat. Smells very hoppy, is very hoppy. The aroma is perfumy flowering hops with some hints of volatile turpentine. Color is foggy light iced tea. Cool swirling hypnotizing pour with precipitants in there! Lots and lots of carbonation, I find this very enjoyable in a well hopped beer. Almost is like an IPA in its personality. It’s not quite like chewing on grapefruit rinds but certainly a high degree of bitter hops for an APA. I just love that bubbly feel on the palate! Every APA should have such carbonation, it makes the bitter bite almost enjoyable. Finish is medium high medicinal lingering hop bitterness.

Bottled. Poured a clear peachy-golden with a rocky beige head and some chunky sediment floating around. Aroma was of sweet floral and citrus hoppage on top of toffee and pils-type malts beneath.. sweet overall and even smelled refreshing! Flavor had citrus zest and sweet pils/bready malts on a very pleasant first impression.. floral and citrus bitterness surround the sweet pils and toffee base.. tasty and well-balanced. Medium-bodied on the palate with a somewhat creamy middle and moderate, well-placed bitterness all over. Nice one!

Bottle. Translucent yellow orange pour with a decent amount of sediment...bone white head. Aroma of grass and floral hops, light pale malt, perhaps a bit of light lemon zest. Flavors of light toasted malt, citrus rind, floral/grassy hops. Medium/light body...sharp carbonation...toasty and floral in the front with a bitter toasty finish.

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.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2007
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.
