12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a moderately clear amber color. The head is about one finger high and white, with a somewhat rough-looking texture. It retains itself alright, though, and leaves some lacing on the side of the glass.
S: I've noticed how I kind of like catty IPAs, and this one fits that mold. The hops also provide melon, mango, and herbal notes. There is a touch of sweetness, as well.
T: The first sip strikes me weirdly with its finishing herbal hop tones. After another sip, it smooths out nicely. There are twinges of juicy tropical fruits on the front end; I wish this was more pronounced. Otherwise, it's a simplistic, enjoyable small IPA.
M: I look for these kind of beers to be crisp and light - and this fits that criteria well. I'd enjoy it more if some of the finishing astringency was cleaned up a touch, but this still has good drinkability.
O: Good, not great. As much as I love trying these session IPAs, there's only one so far I can say I loved (DayTime). Not to mention, session IPAs don't make a huge amount of sense from a monetary standpoint. Having said that, between All Day and Centennial, I'd choose this one every single time.

12oz can poured into a tulip glass. THis is the third one I've had today.
A: Translucent rust body with a two finger soapy bone colored head. Head went down quickly to a cap leaving good lacing.
S: Grapefruit and pine, along with some floral and citrus scents.
T: Slightly bitter some hopes are present in the taste.
M: Proper carbonation body while a bit thin for the style is thicker then many beers for the ABV
O Its a good IPA, I like that is session able however Its too expensive for what it is. Also its got a fair amount of body so while consumption is easier then most IPAs its harder then your average AAL, this makes it a bit more work to catch a buzz, although this could be seen as a positive for some I suppose.

Poured out of a 12 oz can into one of my pint glasses, this beer pours a mainly clear, slightly hazy medium golden color with a bit of a copper/amber hue. The fluffy white head is a good inch or so thick when first poured that eventually settles to a nice medium sized ring lining the surface of the beer and the inside of the glass. Not much foam on the surface otherwise or lacing though. Wish there was more of both. Aromas of some caramel grainy malt sweetness followed by citrus hops. the taste pretty much follows suit wit some grainy caramel malt sweetness upfront that gives way to a very nice citrus hop bitterness backbone on the back of the tongue. Very nice balance, but the citrus hop bitterness is the slightly stronger of the 2 flavors here. Has a crisp, frothy, slightly creamy, slightly prickly, smooth medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Easy to drink in the way well crafted beer should be. For an easy driking session IPA Founders does pretty well here!
