Poured into a standard pint; bottled on date not entirely visible. Having enjoyed this beer quite a few times, I can tell that it is nothing less than fresh.

Appearance is decent, yet nothing to get overly excited about. I realize we have to grade this criteria and while sometimes the super sticky lacing left behind by a standout IPA does get me excited, it means NOTHING, if the beer doesn't taste good. Medium copper/champagne hybrid with delicate foam and sparse lacing to boot. The smell is a refreshing combination of pine, orange peel and lemon zest. This really tastes magnificent and I would warn IPA lovers to have a few before giving a concrete review. I wasn't in love immediately because I kept wanting to compare it to other favorites that I enjoy. Despite the ABV, this has a hop kick that is immediately noticeable and thoroughly consistent. Extremely crisp and prickly, it goes down smooth and begs you to enjoy more. While I would never compare this to heavier West Coast style IPAs, I think it needs to be judged for what its brewer intended. This is a session ale that is spot on for an IPA. I could and have consumed multiple brews of this seasonal offering from Founders without feeling the side effects of your typical IPA. This beer is completely underrated. Give it a chance before it's out of rotation.
