Founders Pale Ale (Dry Hopped)

Brewery: Founders Brewing Company
Country: USA
ABV: 5.4%
Style: American Pale Ale (APA)
Other Notes: 35IBU, 100% cascade hops, 163 calories (per 355ml)

Brewer Description: (from Founders website) A testament to Cascade hops in a bottle, this medium-bodied pale ale has a refreshing citrus flavor and a distinctive floral hop aroma due to the aggressive addition of hops during fermentation. You’ll notice a slight malty sweetness with a balanced hop finish. Perfect to enjoy anytime, anywhere.

Intro: A 355ml bottle poured into a La Chouffe tulip glass. Bottle says best before 4th March 2015 so not exactly fresh, but tried a few days before best before date
Appearance: Poured a cloudy orange/copper with some floating residue, small head with very little retention
Aroma: Grassy, pine, mango and citrus
Taste: Starts crisp and grassy with very light bitter taste, ends with some caramel and alcohol
Mouthfeel: Crisp and dry with nice carbonation
Overall: Feels dry but goes down easy. Also disappointed with the alcohol appearing at the end
