3.88/5 rDev +0.8%
Bottle poured into a pint glass
A - Light amber with hints of gold near the edges. Light carbonation drifting upwards. Slightly reflective and slightly opaque. Small head sits on top and dissipates quickly.
S - Pine and grapefruit make up the nose on this one.
T - Bitter piney and grapefruit hops hit you up front. They bring enough flavor to let you know this is a craft beer but they arent overly strong. I will say they bring a lot of flavor for an under 5% ABV beer. Ther is also a slight wheat crispness that hits in the middle of the beer. There is a light pine flavor that lingers in the finish
MF - Light body with light carbonation. Has a slight resin stickiness in the middle p. the finish leaves a nice resin coating that goes well with the piney finish
O - Overall, a great session beer from Founders that hits the mark. At under 5% ABV, you could drink a lot of these and you would not be missing out on any flavor of bigger beers

3.55/5 rDev -7.8%
Bottle labeled 5/5/12.
Appearance: Slightly hazy light orange with a small foamy head that receded quickly.
Smell: Subtle citrus with a caramel backbone. Smells fruity and light.
Taste: Subtle hop bitterness with a citrus fruit character. Balanced by subtle sweet malts that are proportional to the hop profile.
Mouthfeel: Light on the tongue with above average carbonation.
Overall: Subtle flavors left my palate wanting more. Still, it achieves its intended purpose as a sessionable IPA that has enough flavor to call it above average. I think there are plenty of hopped up pales around the 5% range that pack much more flavor.

On-tap at Slater's 50/50 (Liberty Station). What's Founders doing in San Diego? On to the beer:
All day IPA indeed. This beer is an orangish yellow colored beer, showing very good head retention and lace. The nose is a powerful one, dry yet full of hops. Clean, crisp citrus and pine in this one. And the taste goes along that way as well. What makes this fun to drink is besides having a relatively low ABV, is that is really does tastes like a very good, lower gravity IPA, and not to be confused with a pale ale. This is recommended for sure, especially during the lunch hour.

3.45/5 rDev -10.4%
Orangish body, starts with a minimal white head but stays around for a bit. Good lacing.
Aroma is hoppy - zesty, light citrus.
Hop flavor is a little weak for an IPA, even a session one which I assume indicates the lighter alcohol. It does have a decent maltiness to it, but more on that side than my preference for an IPA. Some lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel is thinner than expected.
Overall a decent beer, I wouldn't consider it one of my favorite IPAs, and not the best "session" IPA either.
