Starts with a nice grassy aroma, with pine notes. Pours a clear light-amber, with a quickly fading white head. The flavor is predominantly grassy hops, with a touch of citrus. Light and crisp on the palate, this is an easy drinking beer. For a session beer, this is a nice one that leans towards the hoppy side.

bottle to glass reveals a light copper appearance. Most lower alcohol beers are terrible in the taste department, but this is basically your standard IPA flavorwise. Nice pine, resin, spruce, and light citrus. Nicely done Founders, but not quite as satisfying as Victory’s Headwaters.

12oz bottle from Antioch Fine wine and liquors. Pours a golden amber color with a white head. Aroma is hoppy, piney. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is bitter, hoppy, piney, a little malt sweetness, a little bready, with a nice, bitter hop finish. Very tasty at 4.7%.

Smurf2055 (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2012
Thanks to beersis Pours darker blond with a finger of white head. Smell is really hoppy, fresh cut grass. Taste is grassy, a bit stale, a bit of mild fruit. It’s got taste, but not a good one. Very light bodied. Session IPA is not one of my favorite styles. This one is middle of the road in a sub-par style. I can drink it, but I wouldn’t pursue it.

12 oz bottle, dated 2/2/12. A nice slightly copper color in the glass. Foam resolves to IPA style legs. Big smell of citrus and piny hops. That big hop snoot is in the mouth, too. Plenty of hop bitterness plus pine resin and, hmm… grapefruit citrus comes to mind first. Yes, a session beer with imperial strength hops!

Strong hoppy aroma and golden pour with thin but satisfying taste and dry mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 isn’t available locally. SOL
