ChainGangGuy (4420) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 10, 2007
Appearance: Pours a clear, deep golden body with a bubbly, lasting off-white head. Smell: Soft citrus aroma with some toasted malt notes floating around in there, too. Taste: Light caramel malt flavor with a citrus hop snap to it. Only a slight bitterness, with a green tea-ish leafy aftertaste. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied, and a bit watery; could definitely benefit from more body. Moderately carbonated. Drinkability: Inoffensively light and crisp, though what you gain in sessionability, you lose in depth of character.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2007
12oz bottle. Aroma is of sweet white wine, honey, and flowers. Average sized, foamy white rocky head that mostly diminished but left a great lace. Medium amber orange body. Flavor is of flowery hopps and honey that ends in a light bitterness. Palate is watery flat and light-medium bodied. Liked this beer, good flavor and nose but have had better.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAY 19, 2007
A hazed orangy golden with a healthy white head. The nose is dead on Cascades. A rounder fresher hop and malt bill on this as compared to SNPA. I mean, this really seems like a mostly better done, fresher SNPA. A bit soapy, but in a refreshing way. Creamy full bodied beer without being over the top in terms of carbonation. Again, the hop and malt profile are like the freshest SNPA Iíve had. Big Cascades. Round malt, with noticable diacetyl, but itís subtle, and that flavor is growing on me. A bitting bitter to lemony finish with a lingering piney floral hop bitterness. I swear, I could drink a shit ton of this stuff. A little less diacetyl and Iíd make this the house beer. Man I love Founders.

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.
