Founders Harvest Ale

Pretty sure that this came from Vancer as part of CEO/Old Farts BIF. Thanks man!
12oz stubbie bottle in the typical Founder’s style. Advertised as 7% on the label rather than the 6.1% in the BA db.
Lots of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Pour is a cloudy, deep orange with a large, bubbly head. Lace in minimal but there is some there.
Really grassy, organic nose (as expected from the wet hopping). Hop based brew which sort of belies the APA style, this is more like an English IPA to me. Nice, mild bitterness that is well balanced and supported by the malts. Even quite sweet in the finish with a mild tang – delicious.
Tasty and refreshing – a nice combo.
Easy drinking, everyday beer, but a little too high on the ABV% to be truly sessionable. Nice stuff.
