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.

TN tasting at maniac’s. Pours a clearish light amber with some floaties and thin white head. Great orange citrus hop aroma. Flavor is a letdown, dry and bitter floral with a ’rotten vegetable’ edge. Maybe an old bottle?

Pours slightly cloudy deep golden color with a couple of fingers of off white head. Nice balanced malt with floral and pine hop aromas. Sweet yet subtle malt, with the right amount of lightly peppery citrus hops. Nice and crisp, leaves a little bit of lacing behind. Overall a nice APA.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2008
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy dark amber color with a huge yellow-white head that lingered and produced good lacing. The aroma was dry, malty and had solid grapefruity and floral hop notes. The flavor was dryish, tangy and malty with a dry fruity and lightly piney hop presence and a long dryish finish. The beer felt rather overcarbonated. Decent.

Crushed with Jakebra. Fuckin dis-fuckin-a-fuckin-point-fuckin-ed. About as mild as pale ales get. Es posible I’ve just been spoiled by Founder’s’s awesomeness.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2008
120z bottle courtesy of JCB. Pours a hazy gold with a 2 finger chunky head and nice lacing. Nose is malt and light earthy hops. Taste is much the same with some citrus in the finish. Lighter mouth feel. Decent brew – thanks Jason!

BlackForestCO (977) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Bottle from jgd0608, thanks man! Poured a lightly hazy golden color with a thick, fluffy white head that slowly diminished to a thick layer and left some spotty lacing. Lightly floral, hoppy aroma with some light, crisp citrus fruit (orange and lemon). Crisp, dry entry leads into a soft maltiness coupled with an earthy, dry hoppiness with some light citric fruit (orange peel, light lemon) that finishes moderately dry with a soft yeastiness and some fruity undertones. Moderate carbonation, light and prickly on the palate. Overall a solid, drinkable pale. Thanks again Jon.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow orange.Nose is piney and citrusy. Kinda bitey on the palate....I guess for a pale its as it should be. may .Still, I cant say Ive had a bad beer from Founders. Hints of Citrus, orange, and pine. Small flavor of grass in there as well. not bad.

This is a very fine APA with perfect balance for the assertive cascade hops. Really, this beer reminded me of how so many beers, although tasty, lack balance and interplay of flavors. well done. And this is their lawnmower beer...

ross (2080) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours out an orange color with a nice white head on it. Smell is fruity with some hop smells - grass, citrus, sweet malts - thats about it. Not much else.. Decent smelling but not memorable. Taste is smooth and easy to drink. Fairly refreshing, but it lacks the hop bite of something like Sierra Nevada Pale. A good beer, but not the best - however, since this is around that means the Breakfast stout is too, and that is good enough for me!

This beer is golden. It has a medium sized white head. Not a lot of lacing. Sharp, piney nose. Straight-forward and watery with a pine-tree bite at the finish. Whatever I’ll drink anything.
