Great floral aromas, a solid ipa that can be enjoyed "all day."

Appearance is a nice clear amber with a little haze and not much head. Nose is super floral and citrus--yum. Mouthfeel is thin to medium. Taste is a delightful hoppy bitter at first then a solid malt after taste as well. This has quickly become my current session ale of choice--it's just delightful!

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!

Wow this beer is good. Aside from the rarer Green Flash "Citra Session", this is by far the best session IPA I've tasted.

Appearance is hazy and golden. Aroma is bursting with citra but not overwhelming. Taste matches the smell. Perfect blend of lemon, orange, and grapefruit. Lightly floral. Unbelievably refreshing. What really makes this beer great is the mouth feel. Highly carbonated. Almost like drinking an orange soda. Minimal bitterness.

OVERALL: Citra is my favorite hop. I love an IPA that makes you pucker. This beer is an ode to those who love citra. Incredibly refreshing and bursting with citrusy floral goodness. Personally, one of my top 5 favorite IPAs (Also a great transition beer for those who are new to IPAs)

A- Dark yellow/light orange with a thin head that doesn't lace.

S- Tropical fruit, Citrus, Pine, Funk, and fresh apple aromas. It smells clean and refreshing.

T- Slightly sweet upfront with a burst of tropical fruit. Citrus and pine make an appearance in the middle followed by a mellow bitter finish.

M- Medium-light bodied with low carbonation. It is also slick on the tongue.

O- A very tastey and refreshing beer. It's the perfect beer when you're craving flavor but not an abundance of bitterness or alcohol.

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: 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).

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.
