Not bad. Nice citrus nose. Gold color with white cap of foam. Taste lil disappointing. Not much malt backbone, grapefruit rine bitterness, dry finish with lingering bitterness. Nice abv to enjoy more but find myself looking for a different brew.

Very drinkable and nice citrusy hop presence. Very drinkable and will be on my summer beer list.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) Pours a clear gold color with a thin white head that retains well and leaves some lacing. Aroma is very interesting and I get quite a lot out of it just on a couple sniffs. Prominent scents include fresh grass clippings, cracked black pepper, kumquat zest, and perhaps some papaya. Flavor holds an herbal tone like sage, and it reminds me a bit like stuffing. Some faint celery is in here too. A slight streak of orange and grapefruit also fly in near the finish before transitioning quickly to a significant grassy and bitter tea-like finish. Mouthfeel is light and carbonation is correct. Overall not a bad beer, and it really grew on me the more I drank it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden pour; delicate white head & lace. Fresh hop aroma gives a glimmer of hope as juicy Citra hops excite my senses. Unfortunately, the beer is watery with only traces of flavor -- sharply in contrast with the nose. I'm a big fan of Founders, but Zombie Dust has forever spoiled me on low-ABV hops.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours a golden yellow to orange color with white head. Mild bodies with nice boquet of citrus and some floral. For a session beer this is quite good. Less filling and taste great. The flavor is like the aroma. Nice citrus with some minor floral added in. Minimal malt flavor. Drank a few of these the other night. Great summer beer.

This is a great option for a hot weather, beach sittin, lawn mowin, baseball watchin beer. Not as powerful as other ipa's, but that does not mean this isn't flavorful.

Pours a dark gold, minimal head and lacing. Bit of a floral nose, and the hop flavor definitely leans to the floral side. Crisp, dry finish. If I was expecting a huge IPA, I'd be disappointed. However, the idea is that this is a session IPA, and keeping that in mind I think they delivered a good beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a light golden with a white head. It would be easy to mistake this as just another average IPA but if you take into account the extremely low ABV this is really an amazing beer. It’s not spectacular but it truly is a good session beer.

I am not an IPA fan, but this was one of the smoothest and easiest to handle. Nice crisp bite and the hops weren’t overbearing. Founders always delivers.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark golden color with a medium sized foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was faint dryish floral/fruity hops. The flavor was dryish and bitter wtih faint floral hops and a touch of fruity hops. Not much depth and no malt presence. Medium dry floral hop finish. Light body. Underwhelming.
