3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brewvival 2013. Clear golden pour with a small head. Aroma was piney with nice citrusy notes. Flavors were light and hoppy with nice well rounded hop flavors. Very light body and drinkable. Should make a nice session when bottles arrive. Looking forward to it.

12oz bottle in a plastic cup. Aroma of citrus and floral hops plus some pale and light caramel malts. Flavor about the same. Average texture. A pretty good IPA but I would like more malts.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
A deep orange brew with a thin bright white head. The nose has some rich grapefruit and leather. There is also some earthy leather. Tastes of grass grapefruit rinds mix with some aspirin. Notes of green wood come through in the finish. There is absolutely no malt body to balance the hop juice flavors. Wow, this is surprisingly bad, especially for Founders.

Canít wait to return up north to "get me some." In the meantime, Lagunitas IPA will have to do but Iíd brave the cold and snow to "hit" that All Day IPA!

Bottled. Poured clear, lighter golden with a short, white head. The aroma picked up grassy and citrusy hops over soft bready malts.. aiight. The flavor found bitter floral and orange zesty bitterness over dry pale and bready notes.. finished dry and tangy. Light-bodied and tangy on the palate. . Ok feel and flow.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2013 12 pz bottle to glass. bottle from Jason/umich in trade. Really like the aroma on this - a sticky kind of citrus hop bomb. beer looking pour Taste for me was the meh ipa - not much on the malt side and hops werenít enjoyable to me.

Bottle after bottle after bottle. Clear golden-orange. Powerful hop aroma of pine, citrus, peach. Flavor is lighter than aroma suggests, with cereal upfront, followed by bitter citrus and a spicy finish. Delicious, and one of the best session IPAs I have had.

Aromatic without being overwhelming and tasty without distracting from the food you might be enjoying alongside. This is an excellent session beer. I think this IPA really nails what Founders set out to do. Itís one of the few IPAs that isnít a monster - itís good without saturating your palate. Thereís nothing to get fatigued by in the aroma or the flavor profile. Itís a good, solid IPA.
