Very easy to drink IPA. Golden colored with a light hop profile. Not my favorite Founders brew but certainly one I could drink all day before a Gator Football Game at the swamp.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2013 Nice golden IPA. Not too heavy in any direction. Light, and very very tasty. I could drink a few of these.

Bottle. Pours a golden orange with light white head. Aroma is hoppy with tropical notes and no malt sweetness. (Bottled 3 weeks from when I opened the bottle.) Taste is more tropical notes, some slight bitterness but not overpowering and just the right amount of slight sweetness. Overall, damn. This is an outstanding session beer and one that I wish was canned so I could pound one everyday while cooking dinner and that it would cost 50cents a can. Instead, this costs $2+ a bottle and isnít available locally. SOL

A light, easy drinking version of a typical, full bodied IPA. A solid session type beer.

Draft from Vintner. Pours out a orange color with a white head on it. Smell is fruity and hoppy with plenty of grass and some citrus in the nose. Easy drinking, lighter body IPA with plenty of fresh hops here. This is a really good beer actually, maybe other brewers will start making lighter session style IPAs.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2013 Very nice clear appearance. Golden orange in color but very little head. Amazing grapefruit aroma. I think Iím picking up cherries too. Tastes like grapefruit with some other citrus fruits too. A touch of hop bitterness. A very good session IPA that I plan to drink a lot of this summer. Re-rate 3/19/13 - Aroma is much more piney this year than I remember from last year. Very piney with lots of grapefruit and orange citrus too. Taste is really nice, pine and citrus, moderate bitterness. Light body, very easy to drink. This is the perfect IPA to drink when you want something easy and light.

daknole (8941) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2012
Pours a gold/orange color, white head. Load of citrusy hops, resin, herbal notes and some caramel malts. Flavor is really nice...juicy citrus hops and malt meld very well together. A very easy drinking IPA!

AWISLguy (1180) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2012
Bottle from ck1, thanks bro! Pours golden yellow-orange with a white head; quite clear, some fine carbonation. Aroma has citrus fruit, an earthy wood and some resin. Taste brings sweet fruit, sticky oranges and some citrus, with resin. A bit dank. The finsh disappears to nothing quickly - bittersweet while there. Really would have liked to mix this into our Pale Ale tasting to compare as I see this sessionable very much as an APA. Taste is nice, it is very drinkable and would love to have "all day".

Pours an expected clear orange with medium white head, decent lacing. Aroma is hops and hops. Very nice aroma, but not complex. Flavor is severely disappointing with only herbal and citrus hops. No balance to make a nice brew. I guess thatís what they have to do to keep the ABV down.
