4.13/5 rDev +7.3%
a beautifully clean copper/gold color with a finger of white head, lots of visible carbonation. smells very hoppy, grapefruit, pine, caramel. the flavor is mostly hoppy, definitely tasting the 2row, grapefruit, pine. medium body on the lighter side, moderate carbonation. a very refreshing and tasty ipa. the lower alcohol percentage makes it a perfect summer beer.

2.91/5 rDev -24.4%
Body is quite clear light amber, small soapy head, and not a lot of lacing.
A fairly potent hop bouqet: floral, tea-like, and piney. A hint of grassyness.
Flavor is more restrained than the aroma, some big hops up front that have a little bit more of that grapefruit and piney bitterness, turns quickly to just a straight up bitter burn. Minimal malt sweetness. All in all, taste is kind of watery.
Mouthfeel is crisp and dry. Not much body or weight, so sessionable it is indeed.
I suppose if you are just a crazy hop-addict who needs an IPA to session, you might find this beer appealing, but for those of us who are open to other styles that are easy to drink, there are many better options for tasty, light bodied and low ABV beer.

Served on-tap in aplain tumbler pint glass at Eli Cannon's in Middletown, Conn.
A: Poured a clean, clear golden yellow color with a thin veil of bone-white foam which left no real lacing on the glass.
S: Very bright, zesty, fresh and fruity hop profile with hints of funky grape skin, lemon zest and herbal, grassy bitterness.
T: Light, crackery malt flavors key in up front with a very mild, buttery taste. The hop characteristics are varied but trend towards the lemongrass and herbal end of the spectrum. Acidity bounds around imparting lemon bitterness and a spicy, slightly catty finish. Not a whole lotta malt backbone to hold up the grainy bitterness, but lots of hop flavor for a small package.
M: Clean, crisp and light-bodied IPA with a good amount of bitterness to keep a snappy palate and finish.
O: A nice session IPA that very drinkable at 4.7% ABV and certainly keeps you interested with it's strong hop profile. As the name implies, you could drink it all day, but I'm not convinced that I would. However, I'd get it again and consider adding it to a summer BBQ or camping pack.

Wow, I am completely sold on this one. Most impressive session ale I've had in recent memory. Appearance is average and doesn't begin to capture its wonders. Body is slightly hazy amber with a small white head with weak retention. Aromas, however, are vibrant and lively. Orange zest, floral notes, and honeyish sweetness and a bit of bubblegum leap out of the glass on this one. The taste is predominantly hoppy on the front and back palates, with the middle striking a balance between grains and fresh greens with a hint of herbal goodness. I really like this beer. It puts many IPAs to shame in its finesse and downplayed alcohol content, and shames session ales with the thrillingly assertive hop profile.

Type: 12 oz bottle
Appearance: a orangish yellow. good clarity. slightly off white head. leaves a lacing on the sides.
Smell: a hop melody. mostly floral but some citrus and pine. could be stronger
Taste: again a hop melody. floral strongest, then citrus, them pine. not much bitterness
Mouthfeel: very light, refreshing, crisp, quite sessionable. very low bitterness for an ipa
Overall: Not my favorite ipa by some measure but it is what it claims to be. its a pleasant tasting and i could drink quite a few of these. definitely a hit by founders for me
