bottle to glass reveals a light copper appearance. Most lower alcohol beers are terrible in the taste department, but this is basically your standard IPA flavorwise. Nice pine, resin, spruce, and light citrus. Nicely done Founders, but not quite as satisfying as Victory’s Headwaters.

12 oz bottle: Aroma has a wonderful pungent hop aroma, juicy grapefruit, nice and sweet scent too. Appearance is golden with the slightest hue of amber and minimal white head that lingers. Taste has a wonder upfront hop not then a nicely balance malt backing. Don’t get me wrong, the hops are the star of the show. But very, very slight malt characteristic. Palate is slightly sticky aftertaste with hops the major contributor, and a medium to low carbonation in the mouthfeel. Overall, A really taste Session IPA. Cheers!

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.

Ok, first of all, 5 for appearance because it has a mid 70’s Jeep wagoneer on the label, and that’s cool. But beyond that, This is exactly the type of beer I dig. Simple, slightly too hoppy, lower abv and insanely easy to drink. More, please.

Apparently I’m on an ipa kick right now. This is a little lighter and on the more grassy side. Definitely session able. Copper color. Tangerine apricot aroma. Flavor has some caramel body but is mostly grassy and herbal in the finish

Pours a light copper-gold with a medium-sized white head. Powerful aroma with plenty of citrus and grassy hops. The taste if much less strong than the smell, less hoppy too.

Lukaduke (2506) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Pours a mid hazey light copper color with a finger head that dissipates quickly... aromas are crisp and floral with cirusy hop notes and touches of pale malts. On teh palate it is a solid session IPA with great flavors that balance to a very drinkable clean finish. RIpe hop flavors gently balanced by light malty notes and a subtle bitterness in the finish. Almost like a hoppy pilsner... MMMMMM.

Bottle from Wegmans. Pours clear copper with a small white head that is gone before you realize.. big carbonation in the glass and minimal lacing. The aroma has pine, garlic, citrus, a little caramel. A nice inviting beer. The taste has a light bitterness, garlic / onion hop notes, a little earthiness. Overall, an easy drinking ipa that is amazing for the low ABV.

Poured from a bottle into my founders glass. Clear amber pour with nice white head. Smells like a nice summer day. Grass, pine, crisp. Great clean taste. Clean grassy hops that finish bitter and very crisp. A nice earthy taste too. well balanced and great tasting. Would love to drink this all day.
