Bottle. Pours mostly clear amber with a large, frothy and bubbly off-white head, medium-long retention with good lacing. Aroma is fruity, floral, grapefruit, and pine hops with biscuit and straw malt, and tropical fruity esters of mango and pineapple. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, light malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation. Huhzubendah (3709) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 4, 2012
This collaborative effort appears clear and copper/orange in color. The head is a half inch thick and displays good retention and lacing. The aroma is a blend of hops and malt, and bolder than I would have expected in a 4.2% beer. The flavor is decent, with a bit more of a malt presence than I prefer in a beer of this ilk. The feel is moderately light in body, and the beer finishes with a lingering hop bitterness. A decent brew, but not worth the $4 for a 12 oz. bottle.

Bottle that has been lingering in my frig for quite some time and served in nonik: Mostly clean golden hue minus some small yeast floaties, left solid rings of lace around the glassware. The aroma has notes of pale kilned malt, dusty yeast, and grassy herbal hops with a kiss of pepper. The flavor profile is that of basic 2-row and slightly pungent PNW hops. A light citric and spice tone over a bed of mostly clean pale malts. The mouth feel is refreshing and quaffable with a slight metallic dryness. Pinball (12166) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2012
So how does it compare to Founders All-Day IPA? It is not even close, the Founders worked better on so many levels but to be honest, this beer is past prime and likely better 6 months ago. Now it comes off more akin to a basic British Session Ale... that is not a bad thing.
cloudy orange, small white head. aroma is nice, slightly fruity, slightly belgian, supernice. flavor is malty,flowery, dry, mild. jesperhammer (4788) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2012

Hazy orange with lasting off-white head.
Very fruity nose with a little yeast?
Exotic fruits - banana.
Very funny hop profile. Not a traditional pale ale.
High carbonation, nice and creamy.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is grapefruity, smooth peachy and dry pine. Bone dry, spiced and herbal. Bitter and bone dry finish. Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2012
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a hazy golden with a lacing white head. Intense, herbal hop aroma. Light body, a little fruity sweetness, loads of tropical fruits and a very heavy, herbal, medicinal bitterness. A very hop forward session Pale Ale. 030612 Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Originally reviewed: 10/19/10. Saw this bottle on the shelf and actually thought I was getting the other collaboration brew, Saison du BUFF (actually rang up as that). Very surprised, and excited, to see that it’s a low ABV session ale! Let’s get to it.
Pours a fair orange with a finger-width creamy off-white head on top. Retention is decent; leaves some light lace behind. The nose on this beer is absolutely stellar! Big floral notes, lots of citrus with tangerine and grapefruit; big piney smack on the finish. Really standout. I could smell this all day.
The body is fairly light, which is expected as this is meant to be a session ale. Carbonation level is a little on the high side, but smooths out on the back end. Definitely a bitter beer. The hops come forward full force, with definite Cascade in the front. The finish is a bit spicy and grating. As a session ale, this could be tamed for me to want multiples of this beer. I like the low ABV though. Glad I got this beer "on accident." Recommend. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2012
A sparkling 24k gold pour, nice white head. Aroma is big hops up front, very resin forward, some citrus, fresh cut grass, and very light caramel. Flavor is citrus hops, hay, grass, some unripe stone fruit. Damn good brew.
