I could drink this beer all day. Hey!!! I think that's what Founder's had in mind. One of the most deliciously refreshing beers I've ever had. Perfect for a hot day by the pool. Won't get you too smashed either. Really a very solid, well balanced IPA. Citrus notes, pleasant bitter finish. I honestly can't think of a better beer to accompany you while mowing the lawn or on a trip to the beach.

12oz can poured into a tulip glass. THis is the third one I've had today.

A: Translucent rust body with a two finger soapy bone colored head. Head went down quickly to a cap leaving good lacing.

S: Grapefruit and pine, along with some floral and citrus scents.

T: Slightly bitter some hopes are present in the taste.

M: Proper carbonation body while a bit thin for the style is thicker then many beers for the ABV

O Its a good IPA, I like that is session able however Its too expensive for what it is. Also its got a fair amount of body so while consumption is easier then most IPAs its harder then your average AAL, this makes it a bit more work to catch a buzz, although this could be seen as a positive for some I suppose.

Poured out of a 12 oz can into one of my pint glasses, this beer pours a mainly clear, slightly hazy medium golden color with a bit of a copper/amber hue. The fluffy white head is a good inch or so thick when first poured that eventually settles to a nice medium sized ring lining the surface of the beer and the inside of the glass. Not much foam on the surface otherwise or lacing though. Wish there was more of both. Aromas of some caramel grainy malt sweetness followed by citrus hops. the taste pretty much follows suit wit some grainy caramel malt sweetness upfront that gives way to a very nice citrus hop bitterness backbone on the back of the tongue. Very nice balance, but the citrus hop bitterness is the slightly stronger of the 2 flavors here. Has a crisp, frothy, slightly creamy, slightly prickly, smooth medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Easy to drink in the way well crafted beer should be. For an easy drinking session IPA, as expected, Founders does pretty well here!
