look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle into a Captain Lawrence tulip. Bottled 2 weeks ago.

Appearance: Fluffy 2 inch white head, slow dissipation. Not much lacing, but a nice glowing orange.

Smell: Piny and herbal with just a bit of citrus. Aroma burst when first poured is very impressive, but it gets toned down a bit quickly. Very nice overall.

Taste: Nice Simcoe-y weed flavor up front along with some bitter pine. Citrus only a highlight. No malt backbone, which is a flaw for me. I like the crisp, refreshing cleanliness of the flavor, but come on Founders: you guys make world class malt profiles in pale ales, give me some of that here.

Satisfying beer regardless. Delivers enough hop punch, though I suppose even that could be turned up. It gets about 80% of the way there to "All the flavor of an American IPA with less alcohol," both in terms of flavor and in terms of low alcohol. Whether the conceit of the beer succeeds or not, though, this is good hop flavor.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, dry, light-bodied. Spot on carbonation. It's maybe too light, but very nicely dry (the problem with the lightness is that you feel like there's a flavor punch coming, and you're left thinking, "where did it go?" Needs a bit more body to fight that in my opinion).

Overall: Good beer. Not outstanding by any means, but really nice, clean hop flavor in a perfect-for-hot-weather package. For the flavor, I'd like it to be even lower alcohol, but not every beer needs to be perfect.

I guess the syntax of most of my sentences in this review tells most of the story: I like the beer, but--you can't get far with praising (or criticizing) this beer without saying 'but'. Let me just say that I don't regret picking up an entire 6 pack and leave it at that.
