Sampled at Boulder IPA fest whenever I needed to tone it down a bit. Grainy, hoppy, clean aroma. A superior thirst-quencher. Absolutely top-notch. Very happy to see this at the fest.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Founders tap takeover at Dan's. The pour is a coppery gold with a gorgeous white head that leaves a decent lace on the glass. The aroma is really citrusy and hoppy with a touch of bitterness to it. The flavor is immediately a light IPA bitterness, followed by a citrusy floral finish and a light dryness through the mouth. This beer doesn't drink like it's only 4.7%

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light orange beer with a blonde creamy head disappearing pretty fast leaving lacing on the glass and a permanent thin layer on top of the beer. Aroma is really nice with lots of fruits such as grapefruit, peach and pineapple. Taste is first fruity and little malty sweet, then the hops kick in with loads of bitterness leading in to a long, dry, bitter and licoricy finish. Mouthfeel is thinner than medium with moderate carbonation. I feel this could have either a little more body or less bitterness, now it’s a bit unbalanced, but still a refreshing brew.

Pours a nice copper color with a small head and bit of lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, some malt sweetness and fruity. taste of citrus, with a mic of malt sweetness and fruit. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, crisp and refreshing. Nice balance. Enjoyable beer that goes down easy. Good for a few.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle from Bradley’s. Pours a golden amber with no head. Looks quite flat. Aroma is beautifully sweet for an IPA, with grapefruit, caramel, tropical fruits and candy all coming through. Taste is more on the sweeter side of things with a light but pleasant hoppy bite coming in after. Nice and caramelly though. A slightly bitter finish keeps the hop-buds happy, but this sweet IPA is actually, well... sweet. Does what it says on the tin, a real session beer that you could drink anywhere, anytime.
