Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a clear deep amber color with a small, frothy, white head. The nose is full of herbal hops. Light in body with light herbal notes and a surprisingly strong bitterness. Simple and straight forward, just like it should be. Just a solid IPA.

egajdzis (5385) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus, toast and tropical fruits. Taste of tropical fruits, some citrus, toast, light toffee, grass, and light grapefruit in the finish.

TomDecapolis (4526) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a a small bubbly white head that left sticky lacing. Aroma of piney, floral and citrusy hops. Pretty much a hop bomb when fresh! Flavor of herbal, pine and citrusy hop notes and cereal grains.

EtTuCthulhu (1112) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAR 12, 2013
This beer’s color is golden yellow with a very slight head, and the aroma reminds me of spruce and floral hops. The taste is quite bitter, slightly salty, and slightly sour; furthermore, the palate combines a bitter finish, soft carbonation, medium body, sticky texture, which is typical for an IPA despite how unpleasant I think it is to drink a beer that tastes like I licked the sap/resin of hops.

r464 (1944) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Golden amber color with a whitish head. Hoppy, earthy, hints pf citrus and pepper. Light and crisp, but punchy and definitely not thin. Very nice for a lower alcohol IPA.

HeinzH (22) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2013
Really fresh tasting IPA! Citrussy taste. Fruity and not too sweet. Hoppy enough. Small head, almost no head at all after couple of minutes. Would be percect on a hot summer day though.

jdskinns (203) - South Roxana, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle. Clear orange color with very thin white head that puddles across the surface. Heavy piney hops on the nose. Taste is piney and floral hops with some cereal background. Thin body, very drinkable. This would serve well on a hot summer day.

I guess session beers are 4.7 percent now. Sigh. Criticism for the marketing of this as a "senses-sharp" beer aside, let’s discuss the aromatics, the bright hops, the sticky fruit and pine, and the long caramel and bread malt finish. This is not a beer for the proletariat. Founders is dreaming if they think the working man gets this. But for the good-beer man who wants a daytime tipple, this is a nice and rather refreshing option.

Emeister84 (1101) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Aromas of pine resin, nutmeg-like herbal tones, zesty lime, and bread crust. Clear copper with a mostly fading, off-white head. Dry, quite bitter, and minimally grainy, with hints of rye-like spiciness. Light-medium body, moderately low carbonation, very clean, and finishes dryly with lingering pine and spice. More bitter than I anticipated, with only 42 IBUs, though the combination of freshness and low ABV are probably bringing out all the alpha acids in full force. Glad this one finally hit VA!
