4.24/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Pours a straw color, just a hint of haze, with a pretty weak head, but not a bad looking beer at all. Smell is a little yeasty, but mostly citus zest hops (mostly grapefruit). The smell's not in your face, but it's solid and awesome; way more than you'd expect from a "light" beer like this. Taste is a bit of malt, a bit of yeast and a nice citrusy hop flavor. If you're used to drinking big DIPA's, this is going to taste weak at first, but the right tastes are there and the hops are really enjoyable (probably one of the strongest grapefruit flavors I've had in a beer). Mouthfeel was a bit thin, but what do you expect given the %alcohol?
I think this beer should be evaluated in a different catergory from other IPA's. It's not meant to compete with them. The abv is 4.7% for Pete's sake! As a "fishing trip on the lake-session ale with some hop flavor, this is a world-class beer! I don't think I've ever had a tastier beer of similar abv.

3.71/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

On tap at The Chimes, Covington, LA

A: Clear, golden, with a half finger off-white head that dissipates quickly. Some lacing.

S: Piney hops, resin, grapefruit. Citrus-y.

T: Light hops blend well with bready malts. A good balance. Nice citrus presence. Very smooth and drinkable. Light bitterness on the finish. Definitely an all day drinker. But kinda boring.

M: Light to medium with medium carbonation.

O: Hopheads would think this one is a wussy. But maltfreaks wouldn't be offended. A decent "mow the lawn" beer. Not one of Founders' standouts, but not bad, either.
