On tap @ Willy McCoy’s. Pours a darker than expected honey amber with fading head and decent lacing. Aroma is light but bright hops with slight pine, slight malts, and slight citrus, slight BO funk. Easy drinking taste - clean, mildly bitter, straightforward. Not quite as good as Stone’s new session IPA, but similar and close.

Bottle. Presents itself as a good looking IPA, a clear orange with a fine white head. The aroma is citric, grassy, a little caramel malt. The flavour is fruity with predominately citrus, passionfruit, some caramel, good bitterness. A bit of a pilsener impression. Light bodied and thin, but good flavour.

Delcious! I saw this today and have had some of these new session IPA’s a lot of breweries are doing so I had to give this one a try. So good just incredible. Grapefruit, grapefruit and more grapefruit. Just blasts you in the face. It’s so refreshing on a hot day and at 4.7 abv you can enjoy a bunch of these. I’m really digging these session IPA’s and I mean come on this is by Founders is there really any doubt about the quality and taste here? Cheers

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass. The label lists the abv at 4.7% and the IBUs at 42.
Appearance: It has a clear, honey amber colored body with a small off white head. There is some visible line’s of carbonation supporting the slow fading head. Leasing is minimal and slick.
Smell: Big notes of citrusy grapefruit fills the nose with light candy like fruity bass underneath.
Taste/Palate: The palate it feels a bit light and thin. A mild malt bass slowly gives way to mild citrus and pine like hop bitterness in the finish.
Notes: Overall after the aroma it gets a bit boring.

Aroma is strong at first, but quickly diminishes it’s inyensity. Appearance is slightly blurry with a low head. Taste is sour-hoppy with a long lasting bitter aftertaste, medium carbonation.
