Tap at map room. Tight pine, grapefruit, orange peel hop profile. Touch of toasted caramel for balance. Great. Dry. Sessionable. Right up my alley wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 11, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2014 On tap at the brewpub. pours golden with a frothy white head. Aroma and flavor is all over with citrus and floral hops and light to medium malt aromas. The flavor is citrus, floral and lightly piney with notes of malts. Light body and smooth but pleasant. A really nice full flavor low alcohol beer. Nice work. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Draft at Jerry’s. Gold with big, foamy, white head / Bright, sweet, nose of citrus, weed, and pine / Light to medium body, hint of sweetness, somewhat watery and flabby, with good balance and lightly bitter finish / Muted flavors of orange, pineapple, cream, pine, and spun sugar / Body needs tweaking, but has a lot of promise.

Ridiculously drinkable "ipa" from the good people @ founders...grapefruit/citric hop character up front, grassy, almost "fresh-hop" taste following...body a bit thin, but that works with the hoppy, spicy finish. A superb session ale...that this has less than 5%abv is a small miracle itself...lacking in malt, but does come up with enough hops on the tail-end to seal the deal. A delicious accomplishment. rxeight (3252) - Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2012
I’l say upfront I really wasnt expecting much from this guy, I’m not a fan of Founders Centenial IPA and now we have a 4.7% IPA that’s priced along with the big boys at $10 a six pack. Picked up a single 12 oz bottle from a creat your own 6 pack, bottled 12/26/11. Poured into a snifter. Pours golden orange color with a white head. Aromas of grapefruit, orange, pineapple. Beer smeels fantastic. Taste of pineapple, and orange. Taste is absolutly fantastic although a bit lighter than the IPAs im used to. Very nice nice balance of flavors and bitterness. Crisp and drinkable, with plenty of great hop flavor. My first though after trying this is that it tastes and smells like FFF Zombie Dust, just not as strong, like maybe a Zombie Dust light. Overall this is a great IPA. It really exceded my expectations. It has a lot of flavor and very drinkable.

This poured a lighter orange color with a white head. Aroma was lots and lots of citra hop notes. Troopical and herbal mostly. Flavor was much the same, only light bitterness, but tons of hop flavor and the palate was perfect, very refreshing without being watery. Wish his was avaialable in PA, this would be my go to session beer. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2012
Pours a gold/orange color, white head. Load of citrusy hops, resin, herbal notes and some caramel malts. Flavor is really nice...juicy citrus hops and malt meld very well together. A very easy drinking IPA! umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 2, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2013 Very nice clear appearance. Golden orange in color but very little head. Amazing grapefruit aroma. I think I’m picking up cherries too. Tastes like grapefruit with some other citrus fruits too. A touch of hop bitterness. A very good session IPA that I plan to drink a lot of this summer. Re-rate 3/19/13 - Aroma is much more piney this year than I remember from last year. Very piney with lots of grapefruit and orange citrus too. Taste is really nice, pine and citrus, moderate bitterness. Light body, very easy to drink. This is the perfect IPA to drink when you want something easy and light. ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2012
Draft from Vintner. Pours out a orange color with a white head on it. Smell is fruity and hoppy with plenty of grass and some citrus in the nose. Easy drinking, lighter body IPA with plenty of fresh hops here. This is a really good beer actually, maybe other brewers will start making lighter session style IPAs. barbarino2000 (108) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2013 Nice golden IPA. Not too heavy in any direction. Light, and very very tasty. I could drink a few of these.
