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.

Bottle. Golden straw yellow with medium white head. Lots of toasted grain action and earthy floral hops in aroma. Taste is sweet grain going med light bitter finish. No outstanding characteristics but well balanced and simple. Great on a hot summer’s day

Another good beer from Founders. With all of the pale ales out on the market, its just a little tough to stand up to some of the others.

Thanks to blazer06 for picking this up in GA. For an APA, this is awesome! Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is caramel, malt, grass, and lots of citrus hops. Flavor is similar with its grassy citrus hops all over the place into the clean finish. A great summer session beer. Founders, when are you coming to Florida???

My bottle may have been aged a bit because I didn’t get much if any hops in the nose. It poured pale golden with no head which left little lace on the glass. Moderately hoppy and drinks easy. A nice session from Founders but not their best effort.

On tap at Rattle n Hum
Aroma straight hop presence, lighter nose that was somewhat disappointing.
Appearance chill haze? , golden with mid light top , bit rocky and uneven.3-
Flavor and Palate :more life in body , good blend between malt and hops. Clear , refreshing ending (hop oriented). Expected more depth from Founders.

Draft at The Haze. Hazy orange-tan color with a big, soapy, and steady head. Crisp and refreshing, this is certainly a superb APA. Mild soapy hop tones with some seawater crispness. Medium bodied. No syrup or awkward tones. Clean, but full of flavor. World Class session beer.

bvc (1160) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAY 15, 2010
12oz bottle, thanks Jon. Pours a hazy darker golden with some lemon tint to it and a perfect uniform slightly off white head. Crisp yet light and balanced nose with cracker, grass, pine, floral and citrus. Somewhat chewy feel with lively carbonation. Very light ’crackery’ malt, light balanced pine and citrus hops with floral undertones. Easy drinking pale.

Pour is a clear gold body with a thin lasting head. Grassy hops offset by some caramel sweetness, mild citrus, pineapple, dry ending.

Pours bright golden with a mostly receding wispy off-white head. Notes of pine, citrus, floral resin, and light caramel. Full bodied with light resin and soft carbonation.

4/28/10. 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The pour is golden orange with a hugr fluffy white head and lots of floaties. The aroma is deep earthy hops that border on catty, and the flavor is similar. I’m thinking this is a bit of an old bottle, but can’t find a date because it’s from a singles rack. Bah.
