This liquid dream pours a hazy golden orange straw color with a large puffy white two-finger head. First sip of this beer rewards with a super juicy hop presence bursting with fresh orange and lemon citrus then continues to introduce toasted malt undertones.

Jamesthebrit (416) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 6, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 Updated for 2013 release A: Floral, hint of malt. Subtle citrus. Smooth. 2013: Huge citrus note. Not as much floral this time but still there. Huge honey note. Sweet. A: Slight haze in a medium golden color. A bit on a lighter side. 2013: Same. T: Certainly not a light beer. Good balance of hops, citrus, and malt. And when I mean good balance I mean great balance. 2013: Same. Definately a little malt a little citrus and a little hops. Amazing balance. P: A bit of lingering bitterness is offputting but smooth on the palate with a pretty solid finish. 2013: Same Overall the first couple bottle of this I had I enjoyed very much but thought nothing of it... But this time, bottle number three, I realize that for what this beer is, its pretty amazing. Its nothing big or epic but what you have here is the best showing of what a pale ale can be. Good hops, good balance and nothing offputting about it. Somewhere between easy drinking and a big something to talk about ale. Simply a great beer.

12 oz bottle poured, courtesy of Pruf. Thanks! A lighter golden put with a decent carb, active fizz head. Aroma is wet hops dominant. Quite aromatic. Flavor is rich caramel under juicy hops. Cream body, autumn feel. Slightly toasty. Delicious citra hop content. Very nice.

Bottle in Seattle. Thanks to Chris hand-delivered hoppy care package. Sudsy foam, warm amber gold. Fresh, tangy tangerine citrus aroma. Clean, punchy, very tasty IPA body. Great juicy, perfume hops. Delicious. Very enjoyable.

Leafs93 (2176) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2016
Pours burnt orange with a small white head on tap. Aroma is citrus, earthy and caramel. Taste is dominated by a citrus tartness that remains throughout. Medium bodied with crisp citrus finish.

On tap. Pours golden with a tint of orange. Has a slight sweet, hoppy smell. Flavor consists of malt, fruit, and finishes with just the right note of bitterness. A very good ale.

willisread (2814) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - NOV 18, 2016
Bottle from West Side. Pours a deep gold to light copper with a finger of head. Juicy and bright citrus aromas. Good body but still fairly light. Highly drinkable. Resin, weed and grapefruit flavors. Bitter finish, spruce. None of those weird harsh notes that some wet-hopped ales get. Probably the best hoppy beer from founders.

2015 BJCP Category: 21A American IPA

AROMA: Huge citrus/tropical fruits (akin to a juice concentrate). Grassy/herbal aroma is quite prominent as well. No distinct malt scent. No alcohol. 10/12

APPEARANCE: Almost glowing shade of amber/pale orange. Slightly hazy; steady CO2. Moderate white froth; much lacing. 3/3

FLAVOR: High American hop flavor and bitterness. Taste is predominately citrus/tropical along with a grassy/spicy sensation throughout the second half. Flavor is akin to juice but without the sweetness. Malt base is nondescript pale malt; very subtle toasty flavor. No alcohol presence. 18/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodied; medium-high carbonation. Hops linger for a bitter but pleasant aftertaste. Texture is quite smooth. Minor alcohol warmth is tolerable. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Delicious, highly drinkable, and commendable considering it?s mass produced and uses wet hops. 10/10

TOTAL SCORE: 46/50
