Into a pint glass. A very pretty opaque red amber color with an off white head that settles and laces nicely. Smells of sweet malt, toasty breads, spice and of course hops. Palate is fresh and balanced with just enough hops to cut the sweet malt tones. Really enjoying this one from Founders!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint @ Whole Foods Scottsdale, pours a lite reddish brown with some lacing. Citrus nose with malts. A little cold at first, but as it came closer to room temp the nose and flavors got bigger. Good blend of earthy caramel malts and grapefruit hop flavors. Even the bitterness balanced well with the overall beer.

Aroma- Big sweet grapefruit, tropical fruits, rye, caramel/toffee, with some nice pine resin.
Taste- Caramel, roasted malts, grapefruit, tropical fruits up front, followed by a light bready character, nice pine resin, and a blast of orange. Strong flavors that blend beautifully.
Palate- Almost thick, oily body with crisp, cooling carbonation. Dry finish with very nice lingering bitterness/sweetness.

Great beer. If you enjoy a bitter beer this is definitely something to try. I don’t get as much of the spicy finish as the description indicates, but I love the balance of the floral and hop notes.
