3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a really damn good beer. On tap at founders. Pours a transparent amber color. Taste is hoppy, but very smooth, hardly any bitterness. I will definitely get another growler of this if its still on tap.
Draft pour at the source. Pours a hazy copper color with a white head of foam. Aroma is resinous and herbal. Moderately bitter. A touch of sweetness. Medium body and medium carbonation. b3shine (8864) - Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Draft to taster at the brewpub. Looks solid; a transparent gold with thin white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells biscuity with a bit of hops and sweetness in the background. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A touch of bitterness that is neither good nor bad. Not bad, but underwhelming. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a orangish yellow color with a medium white head. Aroma is very strongly of dank, juicy hops, pine, herbal hops. Flavor is similar. Quite bitter with mild earthy and malt tones to help the balance. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, finishes dry and hoppy. Quite enjoyable in that regard. Overall, nice one.

Draft at Founders. Poured yellow with a white head. Mellow pine hops in the nose. Nice mix of pine and light citrus. Hope I see this again. alliance100 (1152) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Draft at Founders - pours a hazy copper with orange hues and thin bright white head . Mostly citrus aromas . Bright citrus flavors with mild skunkiness . Have tried multiple batches over the years , the current is pretty tasty .

Hazy golden pour ... little lacing with a thin white head .... sweet malty aroma and some light floral hop ... taste of sweet malts and a mellow hop taste with a bitter dry finish ... the summit hops give it a good pale ale taste with a dry finish... nothing special here but sessionable .... says its only available at the brewery and blue dog tavern chalfont pa found that interesting .... its considered an apa Tmoney99 (14455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2010
Draft at Founders brewpub. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate tart citrus hop and sweeet malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bitter flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Another good drinkable beer.

Growler from the brewery - Aroma of sweet caramel malts and sticky resin hops. Flavor of resinous hops, caramel and dusty malts. Palate is tart and sticky. Not bad. badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2009
on tap at founders...i thought this was actually their pale ale with added summit hops..pours amber with small white head...aroma of huge piney hops...flavor is very similar and finishes crisp and bitter..very good, but typical xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2009
On tap at the brewery. An all Summit hopped IPA. Clear amber with medium creamy white head. Aroma is well blended resiny pine, light sulphur, caramel dryness and slight toast. Flavor is dry caramel with especially dry piney hops, pretty pungent with the hops (mostly pine but some citrus), pretty great all around. Nice, dry IPA.
