Had this both and tap and in the bottle and there wasn't too much of a difference. A session ale indeed!!

Appearance: a light golden/copper color, pores with a thin white had and a solid amount of carbonation.

Smell: Citrus...smells like grapefruits and tangerines.

taste: It tastes just like it smells. It basically tastes like liquid grapefruit with a slight sweetness. A decent burst from the hops that finishes clean.

Mouthfeel: very light, clean with a good amount of carbonation. You get the flavors and then...it's gone. As if you never drank it.

Overall: I would have to say it is perfect for what it is. A session ale and nothing more. It gives off some good flavors, stays light and clean, and served ice cold it is extremely refreshing. Again, it's excellent for what it is.

Wow. A nice resiny, hoppy, piney drink.15 cans for under $20?!? How can that be beat?
This will be a staple of my summer BBQ parties. A great tasting, low abv beer at a nice price? Who needs corona?

Well done, Founders! You've produced just about the perfect summer beer for people who like good beer. Taste, drinkability and price! Bravo!

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

12 oz. Bottle poured into a pint glass.

Light amber color. Pours out with a rich thick head that that lasts several minutes, but interestly leaves little lacing. Relatively low in alcohol. Nothing remarkable other than its lightness, making it enjoyably refreshing.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

12oz. bottle poured into a glass.

Appearance: Pours a rusty, clear orange. Head and lacing both minimal. Carbonation moderate.

Aroma: Smells of citrus, pine, lemon, hops and grass. All typical IPA smells. Smells hoppier than 42 IBUs. Alcohol is faint.

Taste: The taste follows the nose, but it's kind of underwhelming. The lemon note is a little too dominant. It's very average.

Mouthfeel: It's thinner than I'd prefer. Somewhat watery for an IPA.

Overall: This is a very mediocre beer in my opinion. It does what they want it to do - it's an IPA you can plow through all day because of low ABV - but it's really boring. It seems like a stab at a pale ale / IPA hybrid and I think it would be better if they'd committed to one or another. It could serve as a good "bridge" beer to help folks move from pales to IPAs, so it's not without value.

DRINKABLE. A great summer beer. Lower alcohol and a crisp refreshing feel make for an IPA that can be grabbed one after another from a cooler. Pine, fruit hops, and just a touch of a bitter aftertaste remind you that you are drinking an IPA. Get this for your summer BBQ. Everyone should be happy.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured out of a can. Color is a nice see through copper/orange. Pretty decent head on this pour not too foamy.

Smell is good, fruity with some hop aroma. Taste is also good, not outstanding but a nice balance with some definite citrus flavors. Overall, this beer is pretty good and I'll give it a try again.

A: It pours a clear orange-brown, with a tan one finger head that fades quickly with no lacing.
S: A lot of grapefruit
T: A little tartness up front fades to a lingering hoppy bitterness and some biscuity malt
M: medium bodied with slight crispness. It' a little less refreshing than I would like.
I: Tasty and drinkable mild
