Maker: Founders, Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA
Purchased for $10/6 pack
Notes: Brewed with a single malt (Golden Promise) and a single hop (Mosaic). Limited distrubion (Michigan, Wisconsin and the Chicago and NYC metro areas).
Appearance: Translucent orange with a delicate lacy head.
Nose: Big spicy hops with a bit of funk of indeterminate origin.
Palate: Spicy hops and a huge grapefruit flavor.
Finish: Big dry and bitter. Like having your oral cavity stuffed full of hops.
Parting words: Brewed to support the ArtPrize art competition in Grand Rapids, the beautiful image on the label is from a stained glass piece created by Matt and Elizabeth Kolenda that won the competition in 2013.
This is a beer I’m sure most hop heads will love. It’s crisp and refreshing with hops out the wazoo. It’s a solid but one-dimensional effort. I understand that they were going for something simple but for $10 a six pack, I expect more complexity. The proceeds go to a good cause so maybe that can be factored in when deciding if it’s worth buying. Mosaic Promise is mildly recommended.
