In my opinion this is bordering on a light beer. If it was sold as a light beer I would rate higher, but just because it is a Founders, doesn’t make it 95+ It doesn’t belong anywhere near their KBS is at 100/100 which I love. It certaintly isn’t near a Ballast Point Sculpin which is what a iPA should be.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2014 Tap: Hazy, amber-copper color... I find that the clarity is better from the bottle than the tap, in many cases. Minimal off-white head that leaves a few patches of lacing behind. Aroma has lots of earthy hops with lots of pine, hop oils, & mild resin. Tons of citrus as well; grapefruit & orange peel with a timid tropical pineapple lingering in the background. Taste follows through with bigger heaps of pine needles, wet hops, dank resins, grapefruit rind, & mushy pineapple. Sticky coating, wet all around with a nice bitter bite in the finish, leaving you with a slight earthy & woodsy hop aftertaste. The body has a slight watery aspect to it, but I can’t complain much at 4.7% ABV. Lots of flavor per weight, here. A nice sessionable "IPA".

Definitely prefer this one straight from the can. Has a very piney aroma. Grassy, piney, citrusy taste. Very clean dry finish. Sessionable for sure. Love it!

Pours a nice amber yellow with a white head. I taste hints of pine and very mild citrus notes. It’s not super happy, which I like. Very good for the end of a long work day.

Bottle from Meny Alna enjoyed at home
Light copper hazy, white head. Smells of spices, pine cones, some resins, light malts, hints of honey and basil. Light to moderate sweet, quite clean and light body, some spices in the back. Sharp medium bitter finish, spicy and with a nice resin kick. Very nice, very sessionable

Copper colour, some foam that quickly disappears. Citric and fruity, spruce and grass. Medium bitterness. Very drinkable and refreshening, an excellent "light-IPA".

Bottled. Pours clear golden with a medium sized, lacing off-white head. Aroma of citrus, grass, flowers, piney notes and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. An excellent and smooth IPA

If you are looking for a traditional IPA, this may dissapoint because of how light it is. However, I love this beer because of its drinkablility. It’s low alcohol content and lighter taste make it a great beer to take to the beach in the summer.
