UPDATED: MAY 15, 2013 12oz bottle, courtesy of Mario Rubio. Thanks, dude!! Pours a bright, clear, orange-yellow color; mixed-bubbled white head with light retention and lacing. Modest aroma showing grapefruit and round tropical fruit notes; not particularly forward; some light grassiness. Medium-light body; medium carbonation. While I wouldn’t go so far as to call this watery, it feels a bit thin at thirst; as the core grapefruit bitterness builds, I can get a sense of the "IPA" nod: lots of lingering bitterness here and unabashedly hop-forward; a nice grassy dry-hop quality as well; I could drink and savor a whole lot of this beer (though, again, a touch more body wouldn’t be unwelcome). bottleforager (3208) - Gray, 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. auerbrau (3206) - Ithaca, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2013 12oz Bottle. Thanks so much Sean! My first beer in two weeks, following a gluten-free experiment that only proved the fact that beer keeps me fat. Fresh, zesty citrus-forward aroma. Ah yes, this is great. I’m so glad Founder’s pulled this off the way it should go and that they can make both this and something monstrous [insert your favorite Founder’s booze and sugar bomb here] of the same quality, under the same roof. Most brewers wouldn’t care to try. The hop action here is awesome. Prickly, alive, and reminding me what fresh green things, sunlight, warm breezes, and long days taste like. The body almost goes a little thin and astringent, but keeps it up, making this one of those beers that I’d put on my desert island selection.

On tap at the brewery. Hazy yellow-brown body, medium tight cream head. Spicy hops nose, with bitter citrus and pine, very similar to several of the brewery’s other IPAs/PAs. Grassy, citrusy body backed by light cerealy malts, with good firm bitterness and a light palate. Drinks like a reformulated "Extra Pale Ale," a low-cal version of the solid Pale Ale. rougeau13 (3190) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Clear amber with a small off-whitish head. The aroma is intensely floral and bready, with notes of tropical fruit, citrus, and resin. The taste is fruity and moderately bitter, but a bit watery. Still, this makes a top notch session ale. Body is light.

Just like it says on the bottle, this beer is very session-able. Aroma of hops. A clean and crisp flavor with a mild sweetness and a soft bite at the finish. Erasmus_ro (3174) - Alabama, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours an orange amber with a good-sized, white head. Aroma is pine grapefruit and passionfruit. Taste is much of the same. Light with strong carbonation. Nice drinkability. Quevillon (3174) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2017
355 ml bottle (from a 6 pac) purchated at the Rideau/King Edward LCBO in Ottawa on October 7, 2017. Light copper, small head. Sweet hoppy pine aroma, notes of peach. Woody pine taste, dry hoppiness with some citrus kick, light bitterness. A fairly easy drinking but enjoyable session IPA! unclemike (3163) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - MAR 8, 2013
on tap A touch hazy, golden orange appearance with a white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Big resiny, piney, ganja, clean pale malty aroma. Tangy, fairly bitter, ganja/resiny hoppy flavor with a sticky, piney finish.
