Clear golden with a small head. Aroma is soapy, grapefruity. Mouthfeel is surprisingly full. Flavor of tropical fruit.

Holy citrus and grapefruit aroma some melon smell too. 12 ounce bottle pours a nice clear medium copper color. Unfortunately that aroma carries over and it tastes a bit to grapefruity to me. Very light bodied. Unique but not really to my liking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bellco33 (389) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle: Pours medium orange with a nice white head. Nice citrus and pine aroma. Crisp, hoppy taste, surprisingly full bodied. Finishes clean. Definitely one of the better sessions I have ever had, and this rating is more based on that than an IPA in general.

Fredis23 (515) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Pale Orange Color, Medium Head, Did not Last Too Long, Decent Lacing. Nice Floral Pine Aroma. Bland , Semi Sour with Pine Hop Bitter Finish. Way over carbonated and watery, as if someone mixed seltzer water with IPA. Since it is watery, it lacks features that most IPAs share:slight sweetness, Fruity Grapefruit or Citrus, Medium Buttery Like Body with Malty Backbone. Don’t get me wrong, it is drinkable but hard to enjoy. If you want to quaff it as a session ale, you have to wait and let carbonation fizz away. Lasting bitter aftertaste but to my surprise, citrus sourness lasted even longer. Yet another Founders Brew that seems to be overrated. Worth a try, but I’ll reach for something else next time...

SaintMatty (5536) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle (Stockholm Beer Festival 2013) - Amber in colour. Pine, toffee, grapefruit and apricot in the aroma. Crisp, hoppy and tangy taste with grapefruit, pine, toffee and fudge detected. It’s good to see American breweries doing beers around this strength.

On tap at ACLfestival. Citrus, tropical fruit aroma. Mineral taste overpowering other aspects, no caramel, light citrus taste. Light mouthfeel and dry finish.

finol (2262) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle at SBWF 2013. Pours redish amber. Aroma dominated by Amarillo hops, resin and pine needles. Easy drinking, balanced and hop dominated. Refreshing!

Frisk humle. Oklart vad det är för datum på den men den måste vara pigg. Lättdrucken ale. Riktigt bra. Där slutar anteckningarna...SBWF 2013

Many thanks to ThirstyBird for bringing this beer from the US! Orange in the glass with a white head. Great fruity smell like peaches, apricots, white grapes. The beer starts nicely bitter with lots of fruity aromas, coming to a peak between the main part and the aftertaste. Like a blast. Bitterness is overwhelmed by the fruity hop flavours, but they are not as intense as in their smell. The aftertaste is long, intense (peaches, nice bitterness) and quite dry for an IPA (what I appreciate). No malty aroma interfering and disturbing the nice hop aroma. --> Great beer!! --> 14/12/14/14

It is nice having an IPA that’s also a session - this could be nice on a hot day. But I found the hops a tad soapy and overall not super impressed - but then, I’m not too big a fan of IPAs, and the person I offered a sip to enjoyed it more. Not bad, but not one I need to have again.
