Bottle. Pours orange with medium, frothy white head. Aroma is thick with floral hops. Taste of earthy citrus hops. Hard to believe only 4.7%. Great session IPA. They nailed this.

Well this finally showed up in the Northeast, CT to be exact. No bottle date on the neck? Ok...either way it just popped up so its fresh as hell.
A - Pours a rather clear golden amber body. A fingers worth of white foam fades away quickly, decent lacing.
S - Woah, tropical fruit bomb. Papaya, mango, peach...the whole gang is here. A bit of biscuity malt and pine/dankness to balance it all out.
T - Tropical fruits lead into light biscuity malts. Man, this is tasty as all hell!! Just loads of peaches.
M - Light to medium bodied, lighlty creamy with ample carbonation. I could drink this all day so mission accomplished.
O - This is an awesome beer and I love the lower abv. Do not love the price though. $11 for a six pack at a reasonable store? Oy....this is a touch pill to swallow.

Is there room on the sessionable IPA bandwagon for one more? This beer makes me ask whether I prefer drinking this to a standard ABV IPA. I am not sure of the answer, but I am beginning to lean towards the affirmative. Pours light orange with white head. Smell is fruity. Refreshing level of carbonation. Bitter, but not too bitter, finish. I wish they would make this a year round beer so I could enjoy it fresh throughout the college football tailgate season. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

On tap at Katy Brewfest. I was skeptical of this one at first because I didnít believe that a sessionable IPA with low alcohol could still pack in the pine and citrus tones that I love. I was wrong. This was the biggest surprise Iíve had in a long time. Itís so drinkable and smooth, retaining the citrus grapefruity standard that I went back for more, and would drink it regularly if I could. Great job with this one, Founders.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light orange beer with a blonde creamy head disappearing pretty fast leaving lacing on the glass and a permanent thin layer on top of the beer. Aroma is really nice with lots of fruits such as grapefruit, peach and pineapple. Taste is first fruity and little malty sweet, then the hops kick in with loads of bitterness leading in to a long, dry, bitter and licoricy finish. Mouthfeel is thinner than medium with moderate carbonation. I feel this could have either a little more body or less bitterness, now itís a bit unbalanced, but still a refreshing brew.

Solid & Nice Ipa. Lemony and little bitterness. Low alcohol and smooth drinker. Nice that this finally made it down south.

Resin and grapefruit nose. Very well balanced. Nothing sticks out but thatís the point with this one. Really low abv, drinking this is very easy

Sweaty and dry. Stale, oxidized cardboard finish. Hops are impressive enough for a 4.7% brew. However, this concept seems, to me anyways, to be the answer to a question no one asked. If you want to make an "all day" beer, then why donít you consider attempting a decent German or Czech pilsner? This is not an all day beer, as I was quite tired of it mid-way through the second glass. I could have saved about $5 and gotten a six pack of Sierra Nevada instead, which would have tasted about the same, but would have been more honest. A poor offering from an otherwise excellent craft-brewer.
