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.

Pours hazy orange with white head, aroma is grassy and floral hops. Taste up front is grassy and a bit of pine hops, with some biscuity sweetness that end with a slight hop bitterness. A good drinkable APA!

12oz bottle. Pours orange with gold and tan highlights, a faint haziness (mostly brilliant though), and a thin white head that leaves beaten-egg-white-like lace on the glass. Aroma is full of bitter citrus, with notes of toasted bread and impressions of over-cooked fruitcake. Flavor starts bready and dry with touches of honey and bitter hops. Strong yet sublime bitter hop flavor - lightly vegetal, grapefruity - through to the finish. Finish is dry and bitter with hints of malt sweetness and light biscuity malts. Mouthfeel is briskly carbonated with medium body. Overall, a very dry pale ale - tasty and drinkable, but a little too dry for me - a hint more sweetness and/or malt character would have provided a little better balance. I think the hop character is a bit muted, too - it is very hoppy, but something feels restrained, like the hops weren’t picked at the peak of freshness or maybe I just expect more late hop character...

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2010
12 oz bottle from Princeton’s. Light orange color, decent head. Dry, slightly hoppy aroma. Flavor is slightly bitter, crisp finish. Not a bad beer at all, just not a lot going on for me.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours a lightly hazed golden colored body with a finger-width, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is flowery citrus and tropical fruits with a bready malt sweetness. A light pine and pepper too. Flavor is the same. Herbal citrus and flowers up front with a bit of a tropical fruitiness. Slightly bready malts balance nicely. Finishes with a bit of a peppered pine, moderate bitterness. Dry with a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Overall, a solid APA. Straightforward, but well hopped and balanced. Not much to complain about here.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a lasting finish.

BroSpud (1825) - , Massachusetts, USA - JAN 10, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours light golden color with slight head that disappears quickly. The hops are very noticable with this one, especially with the after taste. I wasn’t as impressed with this one as I have been with most of the other Founders brews. It’s good but it lacks character.

BVery (7603) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Bottle. orange pour with a white head - foamy at first but dissipated quickly. Floral hop nose. Flavor was citrus, a sharp hop bite, but balanced on the finish. Good stuff.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2010
(Sample Date: 11/28/2008 Source:Other) Big orange citrus hop nose. Mostly clear light orange/golden. Nice floral citrus hop flavor over caramelized malts sweetness. Finish is dry with tea like hop notes and bitterness.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Bottle. Poured a hazy yellowish color with a little white head. The head went rather quickly. Aroma was faint hops, floral and herbs. Flavor was some citrus, and mild hops. Weaker for a pale ale, but still very drinkable.
