This was excellent. Am becoming very impressed with Founders. Had this on tap at The Blind Pig in Champaign, IL. Great beer place. Dark copper body under a frothy tan head. Nice lacing and animated bubbles. Aroma of fresh citrusy hops mingled with matly sweetness and a wisp of rye. Gentle carbonation and a strong body. The flavor was predominently hops and in the most pleasant of ways. Mixed in was the matly sweetness and the hints of rye, but the hops are what grab you and entice you into more and more. A refreshing, rewarding, thoroughly enjoyable beer that would go well with most foods, especially spicy food. Yes, this is definitely a keeper.

Translucent red-amber w/ light brown foam. Big, grapefruit & pine nose w/ hints of caramel, biscuits & rye bread. Moderately sticky feel. Sweet caramel malt foundation supports a very hoppy, citrusy, spicy flavour. Long, very bitter finish.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2005
Wow, having not read the commercial description here or any previous ratings, I was not prepared for this hop assault. Actually, though, this is very solid all the way around. Great sweet, rich maltiness and a dryish graininess in the finish.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2005
Aroma of strong citrus and pine, orange/amber, pours a small custard head. Flavour is layered with good hops and then fine malt. Nicely balanced, medium bodied. A terrific beer, that in a blind tasting Iíd think was an IPA? Thank You wohlfs.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 7, 2005
Light red and hazy with lots of small floaters and little head. VERY strong floral, resinous and slightly grassy hop aroma. Big bodied and malty with caramel and strong hop flavor and a dryish finish. Somewhat winey in flavor. Interesting and somewhat challenging.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 5, 2005
Of course it pours amber, but thats just the beginning. Wonderful full on floral hoppy nose and a good amount of head retention. Taste is hoppy as well with a nice balance. On the sweet side but not enough for ir to matter much.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 4, 2005
Iced tea brown in color with yeast floaties and a huge fluffy light brown head. Left lots of lacing. Has a wonderful sweet floral hop aroma. I can almost taste the hops in the aroma with each sniff. Good malt balance to this, has a nice thick texture. Sweet caramel flavored malts with a nice dry strong floral hop finish. Spices compliment the flavor, but it ends a little too dry for my liking.
