3.69/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – Served a clear golden colored brew with a tiny half finger white head. The head faded rather fast to leave only a very light level of lace on the sides of the glass

Smell- The aroma is heaviest of a citrus grapefruit hop smell with some sweeter caramel mixed within. Along with these smells is a lighter bready smell and hints of some pine hop.

Taste –The taste begins with a light bready and light caramel flavor mixed with a rather strong amount of grapefruit hop bitterness (at least for the relatively mild bready body). Some very light notes of a tangerine sweetness are upfront as well, with these fading relatively quickly as the taste advances. While these flavors of tangerine diminish the grapefruit hop flavors ever so slightly does as well but is replaced with a blend of grassy and pine hop tastes. This mix of lightly bready and caramel with a mix of grapefruit, pine and grassy hop leave a somewhat bitter and dry flavor to be left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel- For a 4.7 % abv brew the body is on the slightly thicker side with a carbonation level that is slightly below average. The thicker body really accentuated the hop tastes nicely, but with the lack of a body to back it up, it was almost too much for the brew, especially since the carbonation was on the lower side.

Overall – This is one nice low alcohol IPA. Its not perfect, but this is a difficult brew to build and balance that hop and body properly while still keeping the IPA hop character, but yet still keeping it sessionalbe. Founders dose a pretty good job.
