On tap at brewery, pours a light golden color with a nice white head and some lacing, has a sweet grassy aroma with a little hops, has a somewhat dry finish but it does finish with a small amount of hops.

Draft at Founders. I believe the employees were also referring to this as "IPA Jr." It’s definitely lighter than most IPAs with a mild aroma and flavor of grassy hops. Palate is on the thin side with soft carbonation.

On tap; pour is honey gold into this snifter. Mild white head with decent lacing. A nice grassy hop aroma on the nose, this brew is simply a sessionable IPA. The malt profile is muted, the grassy hop profile is light for the style, and it happens to finish on the dry side. A touch of citrus, overall, decent.

mansquito (3399) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Churchkey, DC 16oz ($6.50): Pours a golden-copper color with a nice white head. Aroma is of piny hops and a bit of citrus, although this barely gives it justice, because the aroma is pretty great. Taste however seems to be a little watered down (I know, I know low ABV, but to me that is not an excuse). All the great flavors from the aroma are still there, but not enough perhaps. Basically, I think this is a beer with a great flavor profile, but an imperfect execution.

Golden-brownish appearance. Weak aroma, slight roasty and floral notes. Weak overall flavor, slightly sweet with a bitter finish.

12 oz bottle. Love most stuff by Founders, so I had to pick this up too. Pours an effervescent light golden color with a small off-white head. Smells of great fresh citrus, some hops, a bit of malt. The taste loses much of the citrus smells, with some of the hops still there and malt. Light body, could drink this "all day". Not awful, but the taste is really disappointing compared to the taste.

Light haze in orange gold with a minimal head and small swirls of lace. This brew’s advantage is also its downfall. A nice malt taste is quickly pushed aside by pine hops. The problem is that the hops are too much for non-hop geeks and not enough for hopheads. There isn’t a middle ground, so, even though this is quite tasty and drinkable all day, who is it for?

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle:   Golden hued straw, clear, light carbonation, minimal white head, frothy, spotty lacing.   Seems like a fairly bright/fresh hop aroma.   Light citrus peel.   Spritzy, hoppy, citrusy, light pine, clean, bright, flavorful and not too bitter.   Reminds me of a robust Pale Ale, maybe Sierra Nevada.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   As it finishes, it has a lingering bitterness that needs some sweetness to balance it out.   Decent, but it needs more malt and more sweetness to really shine.   Thanks pailhead for the bottle!

Solid brew - overall too mild for an IPA for my taste. Has a great sweet/tart grapefruit and pine nose - amber with a foamy white head, good film of retention. Tastes shallow - I get pine and some grapefruit but it has little more, almost flat.

This is a very interesting and different IPA than i am used to drinking. It pours with a very hazy golden color and gives off an extremely floral aroma. The floral doesnt stop in the taste either. Very floral with a nice bite, not to bitter. A nice ipa, i wouldnt buy it every day but it was a nice drink
