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. Youíll notice a slight malty sweetness with a balanced hop finish. Perfect to enjoy anytime, anywhere.

Thanks to RagallachMC for the bottle. Pours clear amber/orange with a medium head. Fair lacing. Aroma of pale malts and perfumy hops. Taste was spicy fresh orange peel with some caramel malt. Medium-light body. Bitter finish.

Nephilium (1424) - Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2007
Pours a clear amber with very little head, with an initial aroma of grapefruit hops. The taste is a nice inital blast of bitter and citrus hops, balanced by a solid malt flavor. Decent finish on it, and an enjoyable beer.

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.

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.

Duster72 (117) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2007
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.

12oz.Bottle Founderís Pale Ale poured clear golden with some tiny sediment floating throughout my glass. A white bubbly head sits on top but quickly fades to a thin coating. Moderate carbonation rises from the bottom of my pint glass. Smells good. Iím picking up slightly sweet malt. Grainy and floral. There is also a small amount of perfume from the hops. Smells inviting. Unfortuanately the flavor is somewhat weak. There isnít hardly anything up front. Mid palate the hops make their appearence. They bring a floral character that is pleasing but a little dull. A short lived bitterness follows but it doesnít stick around very long before there is nothing left. Mouthfeel is a disappointment. Very watery along with minimal carbonation. It would be easy to drink a lot of these but I wouldnít want to. Itís just not flavorful enough. Sampled 10/19/06

On tap. Nose was hoppy and grassy. Poured a golden color with 1 finger head. Flavor matched aroma. Strong Cascade hop flavor with some citrus notes. Thin palate. Very refreshing. Iíd recommend it.

Founderís Dry Hopped Pale Ale. Poured from the usual Founderís short, squat, twist-off bottle. Hazy golden color with a small, foamy, off-white head. Web-like lacing. Looks fairly thick in the glass. Toasted malt, faint toffee, and wet hops (grassy) in the aroma and flavor. The hoppiness is full flavored (slightly floral, some lightly bitter and tart citrus peel), but fairly mild in bitterness overall. Mild carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Not nearly as sweet and hoppy as the Founderís Centennial IPA, but quite a bit drier overall. This was a good Pale Ale, but needed a little something extra to set it apart from the others that I prefer a little more... 12 oz bottle from Jungle Jimís.
