I guess session beers are 4.7 percent now. Sigh. Criticism for the marketing of this as a "senses-sharp" beer aside, letís 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.

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!

Bottle from a case I got at Frank Smithís. Pours a yellow to slight orange with weak large bubbled head that fades fast save a light ring around the side of the glass. nose is slight mild citrus and sweet orage jello, first sip is nice clean and bright mild hoppy flavors, finish with refreshing citrus bitterness that lingers nicely. fun beer

12 oz bottles pours golden orange with light white head. Big citrus and fruit aromas. Big floral citrus and grapefruit taste.

Aroma is a nice citrusy fruity scent, with a light hop scent. Flavor is a toned down citrusy flavor, the hops are slightly present. For the style of beer this is, itís very good. If you want an all nighter beer this should be your beer.

Palest of amber pour with white head. Nose is a catty pine with mild mango/tropical fruits and light lemon wedge. Somewhat vegetal. Flavor is more catty pine with barely a touch of honey biscuit malt. Moderately dry with lively carbonation that promotes the mouthfeel a bit. Light, easy drinker. Could easily drink all day, but definitely one-dimensional Cleaner and would prefer to Lagunitas DayTime.

Location/Date:Bottle on 3/9/2013.

Appearance: Pours a light orange.
Aroma: Aroma of light pine hop.
Taste: Light hop flavor of pine, nothing too strong.
Palate:Light body.

Summary: Itís hard for me to give a good total score for this beer. It sets out to do what it wants to do, a lighter abv IPA, but then is grouped together in the regular IPA category. Good beer for what itís meant to be.

Well this finally showed up in the Northeast, CT to be exact. No bottle date on the neck? Ok...either way it just popped up so its fresh as hell. A - Pours a rather clear golden amber body. A fingers worth of white foam fades away quickly, decent lacing. S - Woah, tropical fruit bomb. Papaya, mango, peach...the whole gang is here. A bit of biscuity malt and pine/dankness to balance it all out. T - Tropical fruits lead into light biscuity malts. Man, this is tasty as all hell!! Just loads of peaches. M - Light to medium bodied, lighlty creamy with ample carbonation. I could drink this all day so mission accomplished. O - This is an awesome beer and I love the lower abv. Do not love the price though. $11 for a six pack at a reasonable store? Oy....this is a touch pill to swallow.

12 oz bottle This is a gift from a friend. The IPA pours a deep gold color. The ale was clear to hazy with a small head. The nose had some citrus resin with herbal notes. The flavor had citrus hops balanced with malt that work very well together. The medium body ale had average carbonation. The finish was dry and clean with bitterness in the upper mouth. This is a nice IPA when you are having more than one.

Bottled 021813. Drank from the bottle. Smells of floral hops and tropical fruit and slight malts. Taste is again with the tropical fruits and just enough malt backbone. Slight bitterness and nice clean and dry finish. Good medium body that makes it win over the Lagunitas Daytime. Really like this one.
