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.

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 I’ve had. Big Cascades. Round malt, with noticable diacetyl, but it’s 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 I’d 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.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle. Aroma is floral, hops, dill, wheat. Flavor is hops, caramel, citrus, slight dill, wheat, caramel. Clean finish. This beer is rated too low.

agl108 (1005) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2007
12 oz. bottle at Flat Rock Saloon. Poured hazy orangish gold with just the slightest of lacing. Citrusy, hoppy flavor. Very crisp and smooth. A nice session pale ale; easy drinking.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Coopers Seafood House in Scranton, PA bottle. For an IPA it seems relatively flawless with oatmeal and citrus flavors with some barley and rye thrown into the hoppy mix. It is a bit bittersweet in the aftertaste with an almost slight amaretto feel but its not a bad beer except for some chalkiness in there.

shadey (2055) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Pour is golden with a huge rocky white head with plenty of lacing. Very attractive. Big fresh aroma of grass and dry hops. The flavor is surprisingly sweet. Sweet and nice clean hop background. Very interesting and different. Excellent.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with thin head. Aroma is full of floral, grassy hops. Well balanced flavor with citrus hops and caramel malts. Very nice APA. A great easy drinking session beer.

chicagobears (447) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Pours a golden brown color with a short lived white head. Aroma is of Cascade hops and a bit of caramel. The taste of the dry hops sticks out right away. Has some citrus, pine, and caramel. This has a firm body that you can almost chew. This is actually better than I thought it would be. I will have to seek out more Founder’s.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Amber color with a medium head. Aroma is a nice mix of bread and some grassy-floral hops. Taste was much the same - medium malt flavor mixing well with floral-grassy hops. Overall, a solid APA.
