look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: medium-low carbonation, orange-brown in color, 1/4 inch head, clear

Smell:big pine and light citrus hops

Taste: caramel and toasted malt start with citrus and pine hops that come in the middle and are present to the end...some straw is also present.

Mouthfeel: light bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet start with a bitter middle that gets slightly more dry and bitter to the end

Overall: A nice and sessionable piney ipa. I could see myself drinking a few as the weather warms. Above average beer, but there are several other ipas that I like more.

I have decided with this beer that Indian Pale Ale beers are not my first choice of style. Although it was well balanced the hops were very strong. My favorite thing about this beer is that the aftertaste was not long, although it was bitter. Too hoppy for my personal taste.

Pours pale orange with a decent white head. Not much retention, and the head is a bit fizzy. Some lace.

Big fruit aroma right up front, with orange, citric notes, maybe even some apricot. Toasted malt in the background.

Fruity, malty, and citric bitterness up front. All within balance. Toasted malt has just the right amount of sweetness and depth, while hop qualities actually support the malt. Hoppy goodness stays on the palate to the finish.

Medium bodied, good carbonation.

A winner. One of my favorite IPAs . Easy to drink, tasty, and complexly balanced.

Deep golden, with a finger of bubbly head on the pour.

Orange rind and other citrus are strong with this one - can nearly envision walking through a an orange grove.

More rind comes through on the tongue - kind of like licking a fresh orange repeatedly. Some mango and pineapple follow. Not a great deal of breadth here, but what is here is good.

Pretty standard mouthfeel - decent carbonation, supporting the hoppiness.

Refreshing, perfect for summertime, easily a new seasonal session favorite.

The beer is golden yellow with a small white head. The aroma brings citrus and pine hops. Light in body and sufficiently bitter. A bit watery and certainly refreshing. A nice brew to toss back on a hot day. Lingering bitter hops and perhaps a touch of orange rind. Good stuff.

12 oz. bottled poured into a pint glass.

A: Golden, hazy honey color with bubbles dancing up the side. Head is a puny finger in height.

S: Wow. Grassy citrus, sweet orange rind, faint honey, slight herbal tea. Packs a real punch to the shnoz, very typical of Founders beers.

T: Follows the nose. Tropical fruits, pineapple, grassy hops, slight malt sweetness.

M: Medium carbonation. My only complaint about the mouthfeel is that it's a bit watery, but I guess that's acceptable for a session IPA.

O: This is a fantastic session IPA, the best I've ever consumed. It's full of flavor and doesn't kick your ass, but the body could be a little bit more full to completely satisfy me. Definitely worth a shot.

Clear and golden, slim white head.

Aroma: Nothing but citrus and pine, lemon, lime, a splash of grapefruit. Lively stuff.

Taste: Handy hop bitterness bless the tongue…now, wait, blazes the tongue. Body is lightish to medium-y,..naw, screw it, let's stick to light… malt is crisp and toasty, biscuity. Super-easy drinking. And fairly tasty.

42 IBU. 4.7% ABV.

So, what makes this a "Session IPA", and not an over-hopped

American Pale Ale?
