Had this on 2012-02-12 in Normal, IL

A - Very clear gold with a hint of orange. 1-finger head and mild lacing.

S - Fragrant citrus, light tropical and grass, pale malt and a little yeast.

T - Nice flush of citrus flesh, light pine, light grass, pilsner-like malt, orange zest bitterness increases as it dries. The bitterness lingers nicely for a minute. Well balanced.

M - Light body and medium carbonation. Crisp, dry and scrubs the taste buds.

O - Enjoyable. I like it better than Victory Headwaters but not quite as much as the Lagunitas Day Time or the 21st Amendment Bitter American.

12oz bottle
Served in a conical pint

A - It pours golden amber in color, and presents one inch of off white head.

S - I get fresh citrus and tropical aromas. Mango is the most apparent.

T - This beer just seems to be dominated by mango and tropical fruit. I really like this aspect. I get some mild bittering at the end.

M - Medium

O - This is a very good, easy drinking ipa. I always expect quality with Founders and was not disappointed.

First, thats an awsome label and kind of says what this beer is all about.
Bought this at the Wegmens and looks to be very fresh even though the date escapes me.
Aroma was fantastic. Its fresh and aromatic with citrus and pine hops. plenty of sweet malts for balance.
Taste was a little thin and washed out but still plenty of taste to go around.
Hops where bold with a citrus bitterness. Like grapefruits. Very pleasent tasting.
Oh, the appearance was a clear amber with a thin white head that was somewhere between soapy and dense. Some lacing.
Drink quite bitter and had a clean aftertaste.
A very good sessionable brew with lots of flavor.

Golden body, still, very slight haze. Four fingers of snow white foam. Minimal lacing.

Strong inviting fresh grapefruit and orange aroma.

Light malt base lays a thin coat. Juicy fruit abounds. Hop nip at the swallow. Clean finish.

Light mouthfeel.

Good but not impressive in Beer Geek mode, when its characteristics are under deep scrutiny, by works damn well in its intended role: having one or more when involved in other activities, like fishing or mowing the lawn.

A- Pours a pretty clear golden yellow color with a thin white head. Head is gone in a flash and pretty much no lacing at all.

S- Pretty much picking up all fruity hops and no malts. Usually I'd say this is a good thing but the smell is very very light.

T- Again fruity hops are here but they are very light. A bit of a bready taste is here too.

M- Lighter side of body and carbonation was good.

D- I suppose this is a fairly easy to drink beer. I was a bit disappointed in this one and thought it was rather boring.

I have had better IPAs but none that were this low alcohol/sessionable. This beer brings big flavor with an easy swilling alcohol profile. This one should be in cans!!!

Pours a hazy golden amber color with an average size white head and head retention. Leaves some lacing.

Good hoppy smell, mostly citrus but some piney as well.

Taste is good. Very hoppy, mostly citrus, the tangerine reminds me of Legend DIPA (2011....the 2012 stinks!!!)

Mouthfeel is a hair thin, but what do you expect for under 5.00%

This is a good sessionable beer. I will be buying more this summer.
