Another Founders!
I've read about this one and was waiting to taste it. Poured a clean crisp yellowish type typical American lager. At 50IBU, I wasnt expected much in terms of hop and bitterness.. But at the first smell, I was amazed just how hoppy this bouquet was. Your typical grassy, grapefruity, citrus nose. I thought I was about to dive into a 100IBU Beer.

Then the first taste!. AGAIN! WOW for a 50IBU beer, this had plenty of HOPS without a lot of the bitterness. This beer drank so easily and so enjoyable. I could have this one over and over.. It could easily be my spring and summer beer.

The only slight fault I had, was that the finish left me somewhat hanging. This beer started slowly, that went on full charge, then as I was finishing, it started to finish just right and WHAM, my legs were taken under me. The beer just dropped off. The citrus which should finish nicely, just left me with an unsettled citrus flavor.

The last couple of days, I have had a number of these. And I have enjoyed each one better than the one before it. I turned on 3 people to this one and they all loved it. Its still so crisp and drinkable.. Almost chug-able, but at the same time, I can sit back and slowly sip it and enjoy it.

I have a special fondness like alot of people do for this GR brewery.Poured into a standard pint glass a dull medium golden with almost no head to speak of,I gotta say alittle unhappy with the pour.Tropical fruit-like hop aromas along with grass to give the hops more punch,a lightly sweet malt base underneath,nice hop complexity.Tangerine hops dominate the palate with mild caramel sweetness and toasted cereal grains underneath the good hop profile.Yeah this is a great American style session ale with its big hop presence,Iam gonna buy a few six packs before grillin season.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. The color is a hazy amber/copper mixture, along the lines of what you'd expect for an American IPA. Minimal head and minimal lacing left on the glass. Smells very earthy, even more so than many full-on IPAs. Heavy on the hops and very piney, full of oils and resins. Tons of citrus on the nose also, especially as it warms up, mainly grapefruit and pineapple. The taste follows right along with a heavy dose of pine, hops, and dank resins, balanced superbly by the citrus flavors of the grapefruit and pineapple. Slight warmth, which is funny considering the low ABV. Carbonation is nice and provides a good bite. The aftertaste is slightly woody and definitely bitter.

My only main complaint is that the beer tastes a bit "watery" at times, but nonetheless, is still packed with flavor for a 4.7% ABV beer. This is definitely something I could drink all day.

A: Golden with a light haze.

S: A strong citrus hop aroma with some pineapple, tropical fruit notes. There is a moderate amount of a herbaceous, grassiness from dry hopping and just a slight bit of malt sweetness.

T: This is a great hop delivery device, with strong citrus and tropical fruit flavored hops and a moderately-strong hops bitterness. The isn't much in the way of malt, just a light clean sweetness. The balance is bitter with a dry finish.

O: A great take in a lower abv IPA which highlights the hops even more than a maltier strong beer would.

In a pint glass this beer was gold in color. It had a medium-sized white head, and there was a fair amount of lace.

Aroma nice, but a little lacking. Faint citrus and some sweet malt.

Improvement in the taste. The citrus came through more, as grapefruit, orange, and lime. Some biscuit in the background.

Nicely hopped. Definitely an all-day beer.
