Had this both and tap and in the bottle and there wasn't too much of a difference. A session ale indeed!!

Appearance: a light golden/copper color, pores with a thin white had and a solid amount of carbonation.

Smell: Citrus...smells like grapefruits and tangerines.

taste: It tastes just like it smells. It basically tastes like liquid grapefruit with a slight sweetness. A decent burst from the hops that finishes clean.

Mouthfeel: very light, clean with a good amount of carbonation. You get the flavors and then...it's gone. As if you never drank it.

Overall: I would have to say it is perfect for what it is. A session ale and nothing more. It gives off some good flavors, stays light and clean, and served ice cold it is extremely refreshing. Again, it's excellent for what it is.

12oz Bottle from Wegmans Dewitt NY for $2

Appearance - Clear gold/amber colour with an average size off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, hops, resin, apricots, lemons

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and hops. There is also some apricots and grapefruit/lemon and a bit of resin.

Overall - I'd buy this by the truckload if it was available to me locally. It might just be the perfect beer for me, something I can drink a lot of based on the ABV and lots of hoppy scent/flavour. I'll buy more the next chance I get.

Pour - Tap
Glass - Glass Cask Mug; Pint

Although I've had this in a bottle, I must say, the pour from a tap really helps this beer stand out from other session IPA's.

SMELL - There is a spicy, nutty smell with a hoppiness that spikes the nose. The head brings an airy and woody feel too.

LOOK - The body of the beer levels out towards the bottom, with the cloudiness and texture trending towards the head of the beer, which dissipates slowly. An opaque amber color throughout.

TASTE - The crisp first sip is just as strong and current as the last. A rich hop and mild honey flavor, this medium carbonation session IPA is easily drinkable and full with each sip.

Overall - A very rewarding IPA that maintains carbonation and it's plentiful flavors throughout - perfect for a spring or summer day!

A decent beer by Founders but I am a bit disappointed with this particular beer. I expected more from Founders as usually I am not disappointed by their beer. Appearance light in color is good but the taste is a little flat from what i expected the smell of hops in great but that is the extent of my feeling towards this beer.
