Draught. Pours a clear golden with a frothy white head. Smells of grapefruit and other citrus and floral hops. Tastes if a light bitterness and sweetness, very complementary. Light bodied. Medium carbonation. Finishes slightly dry.
A very easy to drink ipa. User37895 (3042) - - DEC 11, 2011
Was just talking about having not rated this one for some reason, so why not order a bottle and knock it off while enjoying one anyway? Light amber color with a nice initial head and minimal lacing. Aroma of citrus and resinous elements, comparable to stone. Flavor follows with a good piney resinous kick, but this also has a mildly juicy malt base to round it out. Mouthfeel is fairly full for the style but quite drinkable. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - DEC 10, 2011
I was going to write a description but this is founders centennial with a new label, awesome bru thegreenrooster (4448) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Pour is a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma is all things pine hops. Flavor is again all pine/citrus hops with minimal malts. This is west coast IPA all the way. I’m already having hops burps. A must for hop heads. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2012 Clear amber pour with a fairly tractile fizzy white head. Nose holds brilliant white grapefruit, lemon zest, grass, and floral hops. The flavor adds beautiful orange and clementine along with hemlock, juniper, and spruce. Very clean and unmitigated, and drinks very well for a 7.5% IPA. Excellent.

Appearance: Pours a semi-opaque orange/copper.
Aroma: Aroma is mostly of grapefruit and citrus, some pine.
Taste:Nice amount of bitterness, balanced by some sweetness.
Palate:Medium body, has a nice lingering hop/piney aftertaste.
Summary: I like this American/Cali style IPA, particularly how the hop flavor sticks on the end.
Bottle shared with friends. Pours clear golden with a white head. Citrus and grapefruit in aroma. Flavour matches aroma. Great IPA jkwood04 (5452) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 3, 2011
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma strong of grapefruit-like and citrusy hops plus some caramel malts. The hops are really strong in this beer compared to a lot of IPAs. Average texture. A really good example of a West Coast IPA. BK7 (773) - Turner, Oregon, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Bottle and on tap. A very solid India Pale Ale. Good balance and smooth drinking. Big malt sweetness with sticky caramel flavor. Hops stand out with pine and strong citrus. Mild bitterness throughout that gets stronger for a crisp finish. Tasty. JoeTheYounger (1183) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Clear copper golden pour. Very grassy and citrus aroma. More malt forward with a nice hop touch.
