A simple beer all around. Pours a nice golden amber color with a decent head that sticks around for a nice amount of time. Smells of your typical IPA elements; grapefruit and pine. The taste though is very simple. There is a forward push of hops and citrus notes but very little behind it. The initial taste is very enjoyable but quickly turns to a bitter, astringent flavor that is vaguely reminiscent of(what I can only describe as) feline urine. Its not a horrible beer but definitely not what I expect from a brewery like Founders. Would purchase again only in a pinch.

Pours a clear golden color with a tight, white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of pine and citrus hops.

Tastes of the citric hops with a light malt backbone. Hops lead off with pine, citrus, and floral notes with a fair amount of bitterness. Bready malts come in but not much in the way of sweetness. Finishes with a spicy and earth hop kick.

Mouthfeel is medium with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this accomplishes its goal of being a flavorful, low alcohol IPA.
