3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2014 Pours clear amber with a medium-sized but quickly fading head. Aroma surprises immediately with strong tropical fruitiness bursting forward; it features peach and mango in abundance. The taste and especially the palate do not quite live up to the high expectations roused by the aroma, the overall impression is fairly mild and light. Taste is still fruity and very fresh. The body is light and drinkability as easy as the name suggests. The exotic fruity flavour sets this apart from other session IPAs. I still prefer stronger IPAs, though.

0,355l bottle. Golden color. Nice fruity and citrus aroma with elder and pineapple. Taste is medium bitter with pineapple and citrus. Medium body and average carbonation. Nice and hoppy aftertaste. Overall this is really great and tasty beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Pours crystal clear amber with a frothy white head. Sheets of lacing cling to the glass.
S - Citrus fills the nostrils, grapefruit, orange, and lemon, bright fruit, pineapple, white bread yeast with a biscuity pale malt underneath.
T - Follows the nose with bright grapefruit, tangerine, lemon and orange. Nice hop flavor with ample bitterness. Tangerines show up and the pale malts support the zesty citrus with some grassy and slightly spicy hops coming in as it warms. Finishes crisp and clean with a pithy grapefruit bitterness.
M - Light to medium body, solid carbonation, crisp and clean finish.
A great session IPA, especially for the ABV. Grapefruit dominates with a light pale malt base. Itís crisp and clean and you could drink this all day... get it.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle from vino. Citrus, bitter and slightly sweet to finish. Packs a decent hop punch compared to higher abv equivalents.

I believe Founders has achieved what they set out to do with this one, a session ale with flavor enough to satisfy the hop heads out there. I donít think this is an IPA though, and I know Iím going against the grain here, but I think this is more closely associated with an American Pale Ale, and obviously there is going to be some overlap here, but I think its closer to that side than an IPA. Still wonderful

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden colour with a big soapy white head. Lovley aroma of of grapes, passionfruit and peach. This is how a proper west coast ipa should smell like. Taste is wonderfull, loads of passionfruit and grapes, but also a healthy bit of malts which manages to balance it all off nicely. It avoids feelong watery, the body is quite big for just 4,7 % abv. Refreshing carbonation. A perfect sessionbeer indeed!

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can-pours golden amber with a lasting white head. The smell that pops out is citrusy hops and hints of pine and apricot. This IPA is amazing. There is little to no bitterness . I guess that's why it's labeled all day IPA. Lots of character. A lighter side IPA but with lots of character. I love cans!

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light, a bit thin for my tast. Wide, put not deep palette, good hops, mild malts, but somewhat burned in the edge. Short, but fresh. Low alcohol for everyday use.
