Misc.: Bottled March 21, 2014
Poured a golden, pale, clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white head that dissipated in a short while. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Below average foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Minimal-to-below average retention.
Smelled sharp grapefruit, citrus hops, grapefruit rind, floral hops, tropical hops, bitter spices and tangerine. Yummy.
Tasted not quite as potent as the smell. Got sharp grapefruit, grapefruit juice, grapefruit rind and grapefruit with sugar. Grapefruit I tell you! Also floral hops, citrus hops, tropical notes and orange rind.
Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Refreshing, slightly bitter finish.
Arguably the best session IPA I’ve ever had (know that there are probably five). Really good.
Aroma is pine and citrus. Flavor is very mild with a strong citrus piney hop flavor with very light bitterness. Very little malt backbone which works well with the style of IPA. Holmen2 (4132) - NORWAY - JUN 2, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2016 From tap at Mi2 at Cardinal 19.12.16. Orange. Good off-white head and lacing. Aroma of bitter grapefruit, lime, orange marmelade and pale malt. Similar taste. A bit thin mouthfeel. High drinkability. berkshirejohn (6687) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
12oz bottle from a Wegman’s in Buffalo, NY. An amber pour with a billowing off-white head; piney, fruity, west coast hop aroma; in the mouth there’s a good balance between the malts and the rather vigorous hops; leading to a crisp grapefruity finish. I could certainly drink this all day.

Bière blonde qui tire un peu sur l’orangé, avec une mousse à grosses bulles qui disparait rapidement. En nez, des houblons fruités ma foi très invitants. En bouche, les houblons sont fruités, accessibles, plutôt doux, et pourtant ils occupent toute la scène, comme ce style le préconise. Un brin aqueuse, elle aurait pu être plus maltée, mais passé ce défaut, il ne reste qu’une foutue bonne bière de session, qui descend aussi bien que le meilleur verre d’eau du monde. lillmuffin (120) - Haugesund, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2014
Pours in a 0.33l bottle. Light orange colour. Almost no head. Citrus hoppy taste. Hints of plants. Really good. Vold definitively buy again! decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Deep yellow pour with white head and lace. Aroma is nice resiny/floral hops and light malt. Flavor is medium malt with a nice resiny bitter finish. Medium body with good carbonation. Nice session all. Bold flavor and light abv. Not heavy very ok by me mstrcrwly (1000) - New York, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Drank straight from the bottle on the golf course..citrusy,resinous, with a malty backbone..decent hops..very good session IPA. bconch (465) - - JUN 27, 2014
After years of trying any different beer I could find it’s nice to find a solid everyday drinker without comprising quality. Cudos to Founders for making a great, crushable brew.
