crazyvin (1951) - New York, USA - JUN 12, 2013
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.

Bottle. Golden coloured, not much head. Beautiful aroma with pine and a bit of grapefruit. A medium body, somewhat sweet and medium bitter finish. Less body and bitterness than the typical IPA.

Tap, Katedralen. Smells nice, but is too thin, almost like lager. No aftertaste to speak of.

thmsboyd (34) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - OCT 1, 2014
Can BBE: 21/3/15. Intense aromas of tropical/citrus fruits, particularly pineapple, grapefruit and even a hint of coconut. Some pine. Hazy deep golden body with a loose white head. Well-balanced, medium sweetness and bitterness. Very light-bodied, slight stickiness, but mostly watery texture. Medium carbonation and a short finish. Extremely quaffable session IPA.

The pine is overpowering for my taste. Not at all what I expected. Glad I opted for the 6 pack, rather than the 15 pack of cans.

patrick767 (3573) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2014
bottle - Pours clear yellow-orange with very little head. It has a pleasant aroma that includes citrus and floral notes. The flavor is moderately bitter. A touch of citrus is joined by a mild pine character and easy going malts. Itís light bodied and bitterness lingers on the palate. Itís fairly good but Iíve not found any of the session IPAs as tasty as a good regular IPA.

TimE (3226) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 24, 2014
malty, light well balanced session IPA, but not in perfect shape. I drank this in Italy, so I assume Founders doesnít know how to keep their beer in good condition overseas.

Vestergaard (379) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren. Pours a nice, clear, light amber with a small, white head. Aroma has pleasent hop bitterness and a bit of exotic fruits. A little bit of stable/horse in a non-funky, but more grainy way. A bit of herbs and weed too. Taste is pretty bitter up front, followed by a small, watery malt sweetness. A weak hop-fruityness here, but not much. I donít know how fresh this is, but it seems a little weak in the hops, and pretty watery in the body. Medium carbonation.

CloakedDagger (602) - - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle 35,5 cl. Subtle, citrusy hops in the nose. Light body, but never watery or anything. Usual biscuity US-style malt bill, slightly caramellish but with enough balancing hops at all times. Dry and lightly bitter finish. Easygoing and pleasant. 230914

Tselloufc88 (137) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle from Merchants, Rugby. Had this before but first time rating. Nice grapefruit aroma, some tropical in there too. Taste is grapefruit, low bitterness with a slightly sour end. A touch watery but still some spiciness present. I see the idea. Not bad.
