Pours bright golden with a thin fully receding white head. Notes of bitter resin, lightly floral, but just a bit thin. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Bottle. This is a great IPA for day drinking. If you are grilling or sitting by the pool go for a 6er of this stuff.

im not an ipa person, but its neat having a beer that has the hop flavor, but not that bitter aftertaste on the tongue. i get the session ipa angle now.

Approximately 15 pints from a keg at the beach. Shitty phone notes during this mass consumption. I did barely get tired of this beer by the end, but this is certainly an All Day drinker. Golden orange pour with large dense white head. Scent is mostly citrus and pine with a minor malt baking. Taste is the same. Mild bitterness, extremely sessionable.

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 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle thanks to grub.
Appearance : Clear amber with small white foamy head. Short head retention, not much lacing.
Aroma : Fresh floral and piny hops. Quite fruity. Some malt.
Taste : Fruity and piny hops with malt. Finish is rather resinous and piny with some floral notes. Moderate bitterness. No trace of alcohol. Persistent hops on finish, slightly oily.
Palate : Average carbonation. Could a bit mellower.
Overall : Great stuff. Would have been more sessionable for me if the resinous notes were tone down a bit and if carbonation was slightly less fizzy. Overall a very nice offering. Well made, well balanced.

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 from Vintner. Pours out a orange color with a white head on it. Smell is fruity and hoppy with plenty of grass and some citrus in the nose. Easy drinking, lighter body IPA with plenty of fresh hops here. This is a really good beer actually, maybe other brewers will start making lighter session style IPAs.

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.

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.
