MAFountain (18) - Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA - MAR 4, 2012
12oz bottle to a New Belgium Globe Aroma: Pine, citrus, the usual hop characters you would expect. A very minimal hint of toast character. Appearance: Amber, slighlty cloudy, minimal head, and no lacing. Taste: Medium bitterness, not overpowering at all. I Palate: A light body, slightly oily, yet thin. Average carbonation, with a quick dry finish. O: For what Founders was probably aiming for with this; they nailed it. It’s an enjoyable, flavorful IPA, that doesn’t overpower you. I liked it.

Bottle. A- Peaches, mangoes, citrus, grassy, juicy. A- Orange color, slightly hazy liquid, off white head. T- Bitter, grassy, citrus, resin. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, crisp bitter finish. O- I was starting to think session IPAs were a pointless not so good style, but then I had this. Tons of citrus and tropical fruits on the taste and aroma. Just a solid refreshing beer.

PhillyBeer2112 (2525) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Pretty decent. I appreciate the fresh hop nose, very green, leafy, with citrus rind and a touch of pine. Flavor is similar but there’s a let down here as well. First the complexity of the hop nose is lost, becoming more one dimensional with just citrus. Still that was nice enough but in working to make this beer sessionable, they have created a very dry beer, and the hops become almost too chewy and harsh in the absence of any malt backbone. In the end in feels almost empty, watery mouthfeel. Not even hopjuice, more like hop water.

RafeAU (107) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - SEP 14, 2014
I picked this up because it was just under 5%. Nice aroma, but flavours are muted compared to the founders Centennial IPA. I guess that’s natural with the lower alcohol. Pretty good IPA if you want a lower ABV beer.

adster (315) - HUNGARY - SEP 14, 2014
Közepesen áttetsző, aranyszínű sör egy hamar tovatűnő, kissé szappanos habbal megkoronázva. A rendkívül jól ismert illatok sorában a fenyőfák gyantaáztatta tűleveleivel teletűzdelt mangó és citrusfélék aromája dübörög elő a pohárból, tűéles képet adva leendő fogyasztója számára önmagáról az ízjegyek tekintetében is. Közepes teltséggel, pezsgő élénkséggel, csipkedős buborékokkal támadnak a nehézsúlyú komlóaromák, amik természetesen vitathatatlanul a főszereplői a darabnak, a sajátságok, melyek ezen felül speciálissá teszik a remekül megkomponált előadást, a kissé fanyar, savanykás, egyszersmind krémesen malátás jegyek meglétében és a tökéletesen kiegyensúlyozott, a műfajjal még csak ismerkedők számára is könnyen emészthető lecsengésben keresendő.

355ml can from The Beerhive. Bubbly white head dissipates quickly leaving good lacing. Clear amber body. Great marmalade nose, some pine, fruit salad sweets. Flavour is gentle tropical fruits, nice grassy bitterness on the finish. Light carbonation, soft mouthfeel. Could definitely drink this all day.

Courtesy of Heybeerman. Aroma is of pineapple, grass, and herbal hops. Dare I say even a little dank? Color and feel are light as advertised. Tingly feel and bitter fruity flavor leave a lasting impression. Another in an ever growing line of hoppy session beers, and right up there with the best of them. Thoroughly enjoyed. "
