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. Pours a straw color with a fairly thin head. A lot of floral hop notes on the aroma, and also a good bit of malt. Flavors are fairly similar; a lot of floral and citrus notes, although the beer isn’t aggressively hoppy. Some sweet and bready malts. A little bit skunky on the finish. A so-so offering; Founders seems to do sweet beers much better than hoppy beers.

Ambrata opalescente, schiuma bianca di media persistenza. Aroma agrumato, ananas, limone, qualche nota resinosa. Al palato prevalgono sentori agrumati e citrici con un bel finale erbaceo che lascia il passo all'agrumato. Man mano che si scalda vengono fuori all'aroma nocciole, al palato si fa più chiara la crosta di pane, anche se non è così marcata come in altre APA. Corpo medio-leggero, mediamente carbonata, acquosa, molto beverina.

Dorkenstein (84) - - JUN 25, 2015
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.

7.6.14. Bottle @ Bastis, Helsinki. Little hazy dark golden color, small white head. Nose has lots of malts and sweet hops with some floral citrus notes. Malty body, hops, fruits. Dry hops at the end.

Nonshaugen (16) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2015
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...

Pyobon (1083) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2015
(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.

Foffern (1405) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2015
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.

Tejas (918) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2015
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.
