A- clear honeyed amber with small head and minimal lacing

S- very grapefruity with orange and some toast

T- toasted grapefruit and a crisp grassy bitterness. Finishes with lingering tropical hops.

MF- briskly carbonated, light and refreshing. Nice hoppy feeling on the cheeks.

D- definitely a session ipa. Easy drinking and easy abv but still with plenty of flavor.

Probably my favorite beer from Founders. The color is a medium amber and is nearly perfect in its appearance and invites you to drink it. You can taste the hops immediately, but they do not over power your mouth. It reminds me of taking a deep breath of pine needles and being able to taste it. It isn't bitter and it doesn't fill you up. A great beer for summer, which is the intent. A shame summer doesn't last longer in these parts.

Bottle poured into Sam Adams pint glass. Pours a golden copper color. First smell was pineapple and grapefruit, also floral and grassy notes. Taste is citrus, grapefruit, nice flavorful hops. As it warmed got more of a malt base. Mouthfeel was light, yet balanced and refreshing. Overall, a great sessionable IPA and easy drinker.

All day IPA pours a frosty copper color, with a very small head. Their is a strong malty/hoppy floral aroma mixed, very unique. The taste is much of the same strong sharp maltyness, with strong floral bites. Very full flavors, nice strong body. Overall its not bad, very unique, maltier then other IPAS.

Pours a clear, light, amber color with a finger width foamy head. There is very little head retention and very little lacing. Has a fresh, grapefruit aroma. Slightly piney. Has a nice, hoppy, bitterness up front. Somewhat peppery. There is a grapefruit taste all the way through with a spicy bitterness at the end. Good sessionable IPA. I just wish it was a little less peppery. That won't stop me from drinking it, though.

12 oz. bottle, with the remnants of what was probably once a bottled on date smeared on the side, but no longer readable. I'm confident that I got a fresh six pack though, so we'll see. Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.

A - Aggressive pour manages to conjure just over 1 finger of thin fizzy white head which disappears into a froth within seconds. Body color is a light murky yellow-orange color. No lacing.

S - The smell is decent: fresh pine needles, grapefruits, and oranges with some dusty bready malt lurking in the background. Definite noticeable cat piss acidity, like others have noted.

T - This is one of those beers that smells a lot better than it is. Basically none of those bitter sweet fruity flavors you expect in an IPA. Hop bitterness is present, but strange. Tastes a little bit mineral-y and earthy, but that's quite fine by me.

M - Body is thin and watery, and finishes dry on the palate. Carbonation is moderate & decent enough.

Overall, I can definitely see the market for a lighter IPA such as this one, but it's nothing special to me. However, it is light and exceptionally drinkable. Excellent bottle art, depicting probably a great scenario for drinking this beer: in the middle of a lake in a canoe. A session ale if there ever was one, but I would rather get a more intense IPA than compromise for a lighter one. Either way, I look forward to trying this from a can!
