Poured to a tan head with moderate retention and lacing. Appearance was a golden honey, slight haze. Aroma was hoppy with citrus, pine and grain mixed in. Nice taste with strong hop and citrus on the front with a little malt on the back. Mouthfeel was light, almost water like, with a grain aftertaste.

Poured this AIPA from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a light amber color, produced an average white head , featured average retention and average lacing. The aroma consisted of biscuit malt, pine and citric grapefruit. Medium bodied, there was a foundation of sweet malted grain, toffee and an average amount of piney hops- citric grapefruit as well. Overall its an entry level IPA it is what it says it is...a session beer. It will do the trick, but there are much better IPA's out there.

3.28/5  rDev -14.8%

Poured into a snifter on 2/20/12

Bottled 01/04/12

Sun-faded gold and honey color; aside from a minor haziness it has a pretty sheen. One finger of foam is capped by 1/3rd inch of soapy bubbles. The foam is gone quickly while the bubbles hang on longer. Lace is ok; some patches manage to catch.

The aroma finds notes of floral and grassy hops, pine, lemon and citrus zest, sugar cookies and a hint of honey. All this is well and good. Then, after sitting for a few minutes, overtones of hairspray creep in, and there's an occasional notion of cooked veggies (though low in the mix).

Thankfully the veggies aren't to be found come sippin' time. Though an ambiance of aerosol does exist, it's milder than in the aroma and the hops taste pretty much as they should - lots of pine with citric pith and peel and such. This is very dry throughout. The malt profile is more neutral here - it's clean and has only a mild cracker characteristic.

Light bodied and on the thin side. Neither is a bad thing (it's appropriate for the beer) but carbonation is fast and rather sharp, at least upfront, which makes for a biting drinking experience. Finishes dry with residual bitterness and a faint dusty biscuit note.

This is decent, but it's not something I'm likely to get again any time soon. That said, it's easily drinkable and I'm not one to complain about an IPA with a reasonable abv being available.

Decided to try this “sessionable” brew while watching a Game of Thrones episode.

Poured into a Sierra Nevada balloon glass – clear bronze in color with a quickly deteriorating head. Strong smell of citrus/pine.

Taste is of bitter hops and grapefruit. I like grapefruit notes as part of an IPA flavor profile, but in this case it dominates the beer too much. The mouthfeel is thin (which obviously was intended for session purposes) but the lingering, bitter aftertaste causes it to be a slow sipper for me.

This beer just doesn’t work for me, especially as a session ale. I’ve loved every Founders beer up until this point. Too bad.

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A - Deep clear gold. Minimal head with decent lacing.

S - Citrus and pine. Some fruit.

T - A blast of citrus followed by some sweet fruit is ruined by a bitter pine aftertaste that lingers too long.

M - Medium

O - It's a good beer. Could have been a favorite save for the dour pine note at the end. Maybe I need to try this in a can.

Pours dark gold with a medium very persistent rocky head. Smell is huge grapefruit hops. Taste is much the same as the smell. Big grapefruit hops and little else. I think it's a nice smell but for the flavor it needs more malt to add some backbone. Unbalanced. This is why IPA's typically have higer ABVs. Medium to light bodied and very well carbonated. Very drinkable but overall the concept isn't working too well for me. I like the idea of hoppy session beer. But maybe this is a little too hoppy or a little too weak.

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

The pour was a cloudy light copper amber with a small (1 finger or less) white fizzy head that quickly diminished down to a very thin film and small collar with a minuet amount of spotty lacing.

The aroma was right up front with a spruce hop, some grain malts and a strong bitter citrus note (lemon peel and orange peel).

The taste was bitter from the word go with a nice strong hoppiness developing slowly and a harsh citrus peel note towards the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with the strong hoppy taste left to linger for a while longer.

Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a nice mild carbonation.

Overall a very good IPA with a great hoppy finish along with low ABV, make this an awesome everyday brew...

1699th Review on BA
Bottle to Founders tulip

Thanks to BA Kundog18 for the RS gift

App- A darker orange with some golds around the edges. A little bit of a dense center. A small 1" off white head. A semi decent cling on this one.

Smell- A bit faded from being from July but still retained a nice bit of hops, very dry and herbal. A bit like a orange peel sitting in a cut field.

Taste- I get traces of this of this one being good. It was a bit of hop fade and oxidation. The hops are a bitter with the malts making this have a faded feel.

Mouth- Well it's a semi medium body with a medium carbonation. A fresh cut grass flavor remains with some bitter hops.

Drink- I will need to get a fresh bottle to go over this again.

3.3/5  rDev -14.3%

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter (bottle date: 7/30/13)

A: Deep blonde with a copper tinge. Nice lacing.

S: This smells pretty good. It is a different smelling IPA. The citrus-pine smells of this is blended quite uniquely.

T: The pine here is not good tasting and mostly, "Bleh." I can't place the exact flavor profile of the pine and malt here, but it just seems to be the bad side of pine bark.

M: Thin, not very prickly or coarse.

O: Eh, this IPA is not my bag. There is something about session IPAs that kind of takes all the fun and taste out of a good ABV. They are like the diet soda of IPAs, some people like them but not everybody. If I'm going to be drinking a beer, I want it to be full flavored.
