look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

Light looking beer, good carbonation. 2 week old bottle.

Smells are typical Founders IPA (Harvest, Double Trouble) turned down a few notches. Still smells nice for those who like hops.

Tastes like a watered down hoppy beer from Founders. I like hoppy beer from Founders, so that's fine, but it grows old as the glass empties. And you better get this no older than a few weeks, when the dry hopping fades this beer will be no fun.

A hint of resin, dry and light on the feel.

If you can get it ultra fresh, a decent option. I know Day Tripper is 0.7% higher, but damn, a lot more flavor and feel on that beer.

I like the concept, but I think they sacrificed too much here.

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.

3.06/5  rDev -20.5%
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
