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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chilled 12 ounce bottle. It poured a nice golden body with a white head that had some retention and mild lacing. Aroma had a mild malt presence to it. Some light sweetness to it. Not quite a caramel sweetness, but more of a general sweetness. Hops were a different story. A nice blend of citrus hops and pine hops. There was a pleasant soap quality to it. Citrus hops seemed to dominate the aroma, but it was nowhere near over powering. Flavor had a little more sweetness from the malts but the hops seemed to have good balance as well. The citrus hops once again being the main focus. Mildly dry finish and it certainly would make a great session beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Maple Tree Inn, Blue Island, IL: Labeled "All Day IPA". Nose is pretty invitingly hoppy...citrusy and pine resin. The hop flavors are probably too mild and restrained to really be called an IPA, but still an exceptionally easy drinking and refreshing hopped up summer lawnmower brew.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Golden pour with a thick white frothy head.
aroma is huge fruity grapefruit, apple and pine.
flavour is bright fruity and pine hop with a light almost biscuity pale malty background. Lacks a bit in body IMO. Still very drinkable.

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.

Draft at Eulogy. Pint glass. Poured a hazy amber with a large white head that settled to a foam ring. Good balanced mix of hops. Fuller body than expected. Flavors are clear and pronounced but not overpowering. Solid and smooth for such a low ABV.

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.
