Great sessionable IPA. As advertised great hop flavor and a low alcohol percentage. Hey there Fancy Pants!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transfer from BA review on 3-7-13-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served a clear golden colored brew with a tiny half finger white head. The head faded rather fast to leave only a very light level of lace on the sides of the glass
Smell- The aroma is heaviest of a citrus grapefruit hop smell with some sweeter caramel mixed within. Along with these smells is a lighter bready smell and hints of some pine hop.
Taste –The taste begins with a light bready and light caramel flavor mixed with a rather strong amount of grapefruit hop bitterness (at least for the relatively mild bready body). Some very light notes of a tangerine sweetness are upfront as well, with these fading relatively quickly as the taste advances. While these flavors of tangerine diminish the grapefruit hop flavors ever so slightly does as well but is replaced with a blend of grassy and pine hop tastes. This mix of lightly bready and caramel with a mix of grapefruit, pine and grassy hop leave a somewhat bitter and dry flavor to be left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- For a 4.7 % abv brew the body is on the slightly thicker side with a carbonation level that is slightly below average. The thicker body really accentuated the hop tastes nicely, but with the lack of a body to back it up, it was almost too much for the brew, especially since the carbonation was on the lower side.
Overall – This is one nice low alcohol IPA. Its not perfect, but this is a difficult brew to build and balance that hop and body properly while still keeping the IPA hop character, but yet still keeping it sessionalbe. Founders dose a pretty good job.

A 12oz can from czar, thanks man! (I already had it on tap but never ticked it) Pours a clear golden with a weak head that fades fast and leaves close to no lacing. Aroma is nicely hopped with grapefruit impressions. Taste is moderately bitter with not much malt sweetness. Citrus flavors for the most part with no harshness ever. Body is really light but it never felt watery. Slightly oily texture and light carbonation. Nice one!

Draft at Jerry’s. Gold with big, foamy, white head / Bright, sweet, nose of citrus, weed, and pine / Light to medium body, hint of sweetness, somewhat watery and flabby, with good balance and lightly bitter finish / Muted flavors of orange, pineapple, cream, pine, and spun sugar / Body needs tweaking, but has a lot of promise.

Pours light golden-orange into the glass, with a wispy head that leaves soapy lacing. The nose is nice, of barnyard accents along with pine notes. Flavors have bright citrus, lemon-orange-grapefruit, alongside some hay grainy notes, finishing with light pepper. The mouthfeel just edges the medium embodiment, with an active palate ensuing. Very nice for a session IPA. Substantive, yet light enough to keep one’s judgment acute.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours clear copper/orange with a perfect 2 finger white head. Aroma is strong pine and resinous hops. Taste is focused on the resinous hops with some faint citrus notes and a nice earthy character on the finish. Mouthfeel is incredibly soft and a late developing tickle from the carb makes an appearance. I'm shocked at how good this is for a session beer.

Fruity and floral scent. The taste is quite bitter but still fruity. Nice bitterness in the aftertaste. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
