Tap @ Doolittle: clear gold color with a foamy white head. Fresh citrusy hop aroma. Thin body and kind of watery. Expected more from FW. Not offensive and I guess is probably closer to a session.

Light golden body with a small white head. Aromas of citrus, hops, assorted tropical fruit. Light bready body in support of a hop forward beer. Light body, even thin, making for a nice session brew. I prefer Founders All Day IPA to this. Iíd like to try an Łber fresh bottle sometime.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear bright golden under a sticky thin white head. Very floral and a bit herbal nose with some piney hops aroma as well. Bitter flavor with pine resins and a floral finish with a clean and clear malt body throughout. A very by-the-numbers session ipa, and kinda forgettable. And just a wee bit too bitter.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvikar. Hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of hops, "green", weedy, piney and a bit citric. Flavor has faint sweetness, light malt, "green" hops, slightly fruity, and mild to moderate bitterness. Medium-bodied. Good and refreshing.

Bottle. Pours clear pale straw color with nice head that leaves some lacing. Nose is mild pine and citrus hops. Flavor is full of pine needles and citrus/grapefruit with more malt balance than most sIPAís. Finish is very clean with some mild bitterness. Now this was a nice beer to have after a run!

Bottle while in Seattle. Pours a yellow gold with a greeny tinge. Fresh, grassy, light piss, sweet tangerine, light candy, orange aroma... Light body, medium to full carbonation. Pine, lemon, grass, orange, some dry woodiness, light toast, light pineapple... Its good, if a little fizzy.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Haaa. They make a new beer style of IPAs Iím not that crazy about. And this one is fourth best. Sure. I was thinking it was a Meh IPA, so now that it is a category, it is awesome. Just weird hop and bitterness. Mutted, but very weird. I donít believe beers are adjusted by category, so I will try to write this for style. Mind boggling that this is a 4th in class. F.W. make great beers, and so, I guess this one is great. Um. I canít figure out ways to give it points. Just a thin mess of partially mutted bitter. Sorry for being a poor judge on this.

Draft at Kaiser Tiger. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head and some carbonation bubbles throughout. Notes of tropical fruits first, then some citrus, grass, straw, caramel and pale malts - simple and clean and balanced. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, refreshing, clean mouthfeel. Nice session IPA. Quaffable.
