4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It’s like drinking a pineapple pine tree. Lots of hops and almost no malt to speak of. It’s like one of the hoppiest session ales I’ve ever tasted. A lot of citrus and a crazy hoppy punch. Also it has one of the best hop aromas I’ve ever encountered... Yes... Founders is still a winner.

From the tap the pour is clear and orange to brown in color, the aroma is gentle hops with floral notes, the taste initially sweet and citrus with a nice balance of hops, the finish is slightly bitter.

Light crisp ipa, typical American hops. Obviously not so full in body. I did enjoy it though but as it’s not really low abv I’d go with the normal ipa, as that has still lots more to offer. (33cl can from Beer City)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
BOTTLE 355 ML from Bov. No bottling date printed. Sweet tropical fruit in the nose, very little malts (a touch of honey maybe?), no pine or dank to balance the fruity sweetness. The taste is similar - tropical sweetness, clean moderate zesty bitter finish, and... a watery body in between. Good, but at 4,7%, even though „session”, I would expect at least some body from an IPA.
