12oz bottle poured into a Founders Brewing Company snifter.
Pours a true copper color, hues of orange and gold, fairly clear texture with a slight chill haze. A thin, fizzy white head surfaces for a brief moment before receding into nothingness leaving no film and no lacing. The aroma is pleasant, light citrusy and floral hops, a bit of fruit brings out the sweetness from the grain that is soft and subtle. I can't say there is too much going on here, but it's certainly enough to keep my interest. The flavors are right in line with the nose, light tropical fruit, citrus fruit with floral undertones lead the way with some earthier pine and pale cereal grain at the finish. The body is nice, carbonation is a bit higher but still moderate, with a lightly dry finish.
Verdict: A really enjoyable session IPA from Founders. The flavors do skew to the lighter side and aren't as impactful as a higher gravity IPA but the refreshing nature of this beer makes it a winner.

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.
