3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Floral, orange rind, and soapy water aromas. Taste is of lemon and orange, and spicey dry bread. There is a nice sparkle from the carbonation and bitter hops in the finish that encourage another sip.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy, straw coloured pour. Nut much head, just a hint of lacing. Aroma suggests a fruity hop flavour. Not much bitterness in the mouthfeel, carbonation is up front. Flavour is almost absent. Expected more hoppiness in this one. I’m a bit disappointed that this is from the same brewery that gave us the Centennial IPA...

(Bottle) Slightly hazy amber with slight off-white head. Nice aroma - mainly pine with citrus notes. Good mouthfeel from plentiful fine carbonation. Taste is hops from start to finish - but in a good way. Whilst they are dominant, they are good, and not overwhelming. There’s some nice light toffee sweetness in the mid palate, and some tangy fruity notes at the start. Very good APA.

Just an average pale ale but very drinkable. Nice hoppy taste. Good but nothing overly special.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Has a slightly unclear orange color with a light beige head, The aroma is a bit careful but yet pretty complex with grass, tropical fruit, pine, flowers, leather and mature gooseberries. More flowers are present in the flavor along with straw, sweet malt, leather, grassy hops, caramel and some forest floor. Has a medium body and slick mouth feel. Balanced bitterness. A somewhat complex, malty and well-balanced APA. Would have expected more aroma from a dry hopped ale but maybe its 7 month age is the cause.

2.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught > Gingerman. It's on nitro so of course it's looks great and the palate is good and thick and creamy. Unfortunately, the flavor and aroma are missing. Almost no aroma and the flavor is bland. Disappointing coming from a great brewery.

33cl @ bottle. American Pale Ale della Founders. Non ai livelli della Centennial ma comunque una birra di buon livello e ottima per contrastare la sete estiva.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a mostly clear orange-amber with a thin but lasting white head. Aromas of orange peel, caramel, flowers and lemon. Taste starts out with juicy peach and oranges before a fairly gentle pine and burnt caramel bitterness comes in. Flowers and citrus at the end lead to a lingering finish and a fresh fruit aftertaste. Another good beer from Founders.
