look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Rich gold with thin white head and some nice lacing.

Smell: Spicy and dry, with citrus and floral notes.

Taste: Very dry malt base with citrus notes of grapefruit and bitter orange. Finish has floral notes that are spicy and fairly bitter.

Feel: Firm, light body with the carbonation nicely in check (as expected in a Bitter-like beer). Extremely dry finish.

Overall: Another winner from Founders and another delicious session beer, even if not quite as good as Surly Bitter Brewer, Brau Brothers Hopsession, and Lagunitas DayTime.

Speaking of these beers in general, I am a little annoyed at the marketing gimmick of calling these session beers IPAs or Super Pale Ales. They're not. They are extremely Americanized forms of the English Bitter. A least Surly recognizes that their version is Bitter-like, as opposed to calling it an IPA. Can we make an American Bitter category, and be done with the ridiculous marketing? That said, I love this "style".
