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!

4.21/5 rDev +9.4%

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass.
APPEARANCE: golden, amber, cloudy with 1 finger head that dissipated quickly leaving a thin layer of foam that lasted throughout. There was a good amount of lacing on the glass, light carbonation.
SMELL: sweet malt, flowers, piney hops, pepper. Very pleasant.
TASTE: The taste does not exactly follow the nose, this is a hop dominant IPA with no hint of the flowery sweet malt that you get in the smell. The hops are pleasant but do not overpower making this very drinkable.
PALATE: this is a medium body beer with lighter carbonation.
OVERALL: This is a very good IPA and I would but it again. It's low in alcohol (4.7%) compared to most IPA's I've tried which means I can enjoy more of it. The name is very fitting because you could drink this all day while fishing. This is the second beer I've had from Founders. They have yet to disappoint me.
