Not bad for a"light" American IPA. For me it's too thin in the malt department though.

A really good IPA ... 2nd to their Centennial IPA

Poured a hazy copper/amber colour.

Sweet, slightly floral nose with bits of honey. The hops are prevalent, but not very strong.

Lots of floral/citrus hops taste, but not too intense of bitter. Leaves the mouth a little dry from the bitterness (like grapefruit rinds). Slightly malty and mid-bodied. Very easy drinking (especially on a sunny day).

Would I buy it again? Yes.

Great tropical aroma, with juicy flavor that matches. Bright flavors, clean finish. Refreshing, well carbed. Thinner feel and easy drinking.

Under rated beer. Best bang for the buck out there. One of my fave and perfectly named, I can drink this all day.

I'm not into IPAs and this one is not different. It has woody undertones and is golden in color.

Pours a golden color with a small white head. Smell is lemony with some pine accents. Taste is pretty disappointing. It has a generic bitterness with not too much flavor, and the flavors that are present are primarily lemon with some grassiness. This beer is very very light bodied. But rating it for what it is it's not too bad, pretty refreshing and easy to drink. I Just wish there was more hop flavor.

Looks nice.
Smells ok.
Body is thin and I would have preferred a smoother/rounder hop presence.

The name is true. This is very drinkable but not an overly flavorful or hoppy IPA. Great summer beer but don't expect to have your senses blown

This beer hits you with a nice floral smell and provides a good hop bite that finishes clean.

Nicely hoppy and refreshing. May be my 1st choice for the category.

Very "sessionable". A decent mix of hops and malts. It does have a watered down taste to get to the 4.7% Abv, a taste some other session ales are able to combat. It's exactly as described, an ipa to drink "all day".

This is great IPA. I prefer Two Hearted Ale, but Founder's makes a smooth and balanced beer. The hops are just right, and the aftertaste leaves you wanting more. Darker in color with an orange tint, I recommend this beer.

Orange or dark gold in color. The taste was tangy, almost sour, with a weird after taste to follow.

I haven't been much on the session IPA craze but this is a very nice beer. My main aversion to the style is monetary. I can't bring myself to spend $11 on a six pack of beer this low ABV. However it was a hot day and I had just walked a couple of miles. This was on happy hour special and it hit the spot when the others choices were heavier IPAs or Allagash white. This split the difference of what I needed. Great hop flavor but a lighter more drinkable body. Really good.

Best thing about this beer is a relatively low alcohol content for an IPA.

Best tasting session IPA I have had. Nice and hoppy full body taste, very smooth finish, I purchase these in 15 pack cans and it's very reasonably priced.

Perfect session IPA, reminds me of moon man with a little more bitterness. Refreshing, good color for the style with nice head retention. Slightly floral with citrus. I love it
