Bottle. Pours copper with a finger of white head, some lacing, and active carbonation. The aroma is primarily floral but not particularly pungent. The taste is light, crisp, and mildly bitter. The finish is a little bit dry. The palate is medium and this is a strong APA.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not a great aroma. But a nice taste. Not strong but still nice on hops. Fluid but not over-tangy mouthfeel. Delicate finish. Bit of a nice bitter end that fades nicely.

Bored at a bar waiting on some people and rating this to pass the time. Had this in life but probably only once and not since when I first drank Founders. Pint pour, too dark to properly describe the color. Strong head leaves an uber thick glass covering lacing. Hard to give a 5 in a pint glass off draft but this is perfect looking clear beer. Aroma is hop heavy with a lean malt background. Mostly clean hey and fresh grass and very light tropical fruit (mango) - all from the hops. Same in flavor. Just a very clean and lean beer with a dry finish. Really drinkable.

The smell is good and fruity. The taste is slightly fruity but really good nonetheless. Slightly bitter aftertaste and is left for a little while in the mouth. Really nice beer to drink. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml bottle bought at Craftissmo in Tsim Sha Tsui East.
Transluclent golden honey orange colour with trunks of yeast particles; One-quarter finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds;
Small sticky lacing with notable small carbonation; Fragrant sweet aroma of ale malt, with grapefruit, orange, floral, light honey, molasses, very light pine, light lemon and thin grassy hops; Close to light sweet taste of ale malt, with very light grapefruit, molasses, light pine, bread, strong lime, sharp grass and strong bitter hops; Mid to light body. Dry, slick and slightly oozy palate; Mouth feel is on the mark APA: light-to-moderate maltyness. Slick body, citrusy taste is in the background, low molasses sweetness, light bread and limey, and the bitterness take over. Okay… Hoppiness is low-fi grapefruit plus floral, orange, and light pine aroma. Grapefruit shades, very light pine and strong lime in taste. Very strong bitter hops than the 35 IBUs suggested. Sharp fresh grassy astringency for a lasting and tasty bitter finish; Dry after taste. Bitter and quite well-rounded to mouth.
Comments: This one is very close to its APA spirit with simple and rather low-fi Cascade fruitiness, moderate body, slick mouth feel, and dominated with strong sharp bitter hops. Simple-minded and rock solid. It’s good for the style but has plenty of room to be even better.

Medium bodied? This is pretty big to me - malty herbal aroma follows through on the tongue - satisfying - nice one. Oh... And lovely label.
