A big shout out to my friend Michaela for bringing this to me from Chicago. Pours a nice hazy peach colour. Good vegetal Green aromas and flavours. Very nice session ale.

A hazy golden beer with a small white head. The aroma is great, a lot of yeast and tropical fruit. The flavor is fruity with pine and resin. Easy drinking and delicious.

12 oz bottle in a trade with watson1977. Can’t seem to find a bottle date on this one. It pours a nice golden orange color with a shrinking off white head. The aroma has some nice citrusy and mildly piney hops with a somewhat bready and lightly caramalt background. The flavor is brightly hoppy with citrus, melon and some more spicy hops toward the finish. Just a hint of caramel malt for balance does not detract from the hop forward flavor profile. Potent bitter finish, but not overbearing. Easy drinker, obviously. Really nice session beer. I’d love to get a case of this stuff.

After driving home for several hours I figured I deserved a few beers to relax so decided to head over to draught 55. Pours clear gold with nice white head. Nose of dank hops. Tastes of grapefruit, resin, other citrus, and pine. Straight up ipa but great mouthfeel and nice

Draft at Sweetgrass Dairy. Clear golden pour with a bubbly white head. Very citrusy and piney hop nose with lighter malt character. Flavor is very hop forward but not so bitter as it packs more citrus to it. Clean easy drinking body and very crushable.

On tap. Pour is clear golden with a finger-wide head. Aroma is of faint hops, grapefruit, sweet grains. Flavor is slightly on the bitter side, also with notes of grapefruit. It is what Founders wants it to be, a session IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at a local watering hole. Served in a pint glass. Pours dark yellow with a one finger dense white head. Fair amount of lace. Aroma is grass and pine, quite pungent. Lots of bitter hop bite in the taste. Not a whole lot of malt for balance. Palate is a bit thin. Bitter aftertaste.

I don’t love this beer. Lots of bitterness but not that much flavor, mostly floral notes, and a long bitter aftertaste that makes it not feel very refreshing. No sweetness at all for balance.
