Outstanding grapefruit aroma, and lingering hop bitterness. Low ABV "session ale" is appreciated as part of a reasonable beer menu. However, body was thin, and lacking the fuller malt input.

Draft. I am a big fan of Founder’s Ipas and this was a great addition. It’s definitely lighter than most, but hasn’t given up much of the taste or aroma. I think this is great to have a lower alcohol option without resorting to something that seems watered down.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a nice, white laced head. Light, sweet, hoppy aroma. Smooth taste with a light hint of hops. Slight tart flavor. Aside from that, nothing spectacular.

Bottle ales by mail. Beautiful clean fresh pine and citrus aroma, easy on the palate with lemon sherbert soft bitterness and a fine dryness. Finish has leafy papery notes with more lemon late on. Pours a beautiful amber colour with a thin white head. Excellent.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Enjoyed on tap at a Founders tasting event at Binny’s south loop in Chicago, IL. I don’t know if I could drink this ’all day’...I don’t think I’d want to wake up the next day. Appearance cloudy golden with rich white head that sticks to the side of the glass. Aroma of stinky, beautiful hops, a bit grassy and ’naturey’. Taste relatively creamy and equally bitter, kinda sucks the moisture from the sides of your mouth. Plentiful amounts of hops, not much really on the malts but its somewhat crisp. Very good, solid IPA.

On tap as part of a sampler at Founders Brewery in Grand Rapids, MI. Appearance somewhat clear golden with not much head. Aroma mostly malt and lemony with a touch of hops, very nice. Taste similar to Gumballhead, has that nice lemon citrus flavor with a good hop backing. Goes down super easy, very flavorful, delicious. Would definitely enjoy again if it was readily available.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Founders. Poured into a tall almost pilsner style glass. Golden amber color with zero real head poured. Good aroma of hops but not really citrus or piney but almost fruity type hop aroma. Fairly hop forward but pretty light. Like the hops. The back end falls apart a little for me. Lighter mouthfeel. Not bad overall.
