look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

Wanted to try this pale ale with an IPA taste.

A - Vibrant orange color with course small white head. No lacing. Very clear.

S - Strong hop nose. Full of citrus, some pine, and light floral. Very light grain smell.

T - Has all the hops from the smell with lots of citrus on the front and some pine. Light complimenting grain flavor but definitely hoppy. Very crisp light finish with nice hop bitterness.

M - Light mouth-feel with some graininess. Has some bitterness but is mostly clean on the finish. Light carbonation.

Overall, a deliciously flavored IPA with the body of a light lager. I love the hops and the nice graininess makes for a delicious brew. Perfect if you don't like overly bitter or malt heavy IPA's . It's from the Midwest but seems like it should be from the Pacific NW. I could drink these for ever!

This is my favorite IPA right now. It has a very sharp flavor and is obviously very hoppy, but well balanced. I really like that it is a session beer so it is lower in alcohol, making it more enjoyable to drink multiple because a lot of IPAs right now are fairly high in ABV.

A- Pours a hazy peach golden color with a few streams of rising carbonation. The white head is thin and creamy with nice retention and leaves some nice lacing.

S- Peach, mango, pineapple, pine, and grass. Aromatic and very appealing.

T- Piney hops, with a nice malt backing. There is some nice fruitiness as well. Light on the finish.

M- The carbonation is nice and keeps it light. Just a bit of lingering bitterness.

O- A very well made beer that drinks incredibly well. Very tasty. This is going to be consumed a lot in the summer.

A: Crisp, clear IPA with little head. There is a small island of soapy white foam in the middle of mine and barely a ring around the edges. Looks lively with bubbles streaming to the top. Light amber body.

N: Having not expected much out of the nose on this one since it is only 40 or so IBUS, I was VERY pleasantly surprised. Straight up west coast grape fruit hoppiness, tropical fruits, a bit of caramel.

T: Very good. Again, with economy model the elements are--such as the IBUS and ABV, I'm pleasantly surprised. Very refreshing, which was to be expected--but also very flavorful. A little toned-down but you get the same floral, grapefruit, perfume character on the taste that you get on the nose. Just slightly subdued.

M: Crisp, clean, refreshing. Perfect for a camping trip, which the bottle seems to depict :)

Sidenote: I just want to say that I'm glad that Founders has made a really good, complex, flavorful beer that I can take to a BBQ or other outdoor long-lasting event and not be a mess. The ABV race to the top gets annoying to craft beer drinkers who want to kick back and enjoy a few but are often limited to splitting a 12 oz. bottle and that's it (unless you want to get sloshed).
