This is just a fun beer. IPA's are not my go-to, but this is becoming my summer go-to

So damn crushable. All day indeed with some light bitterness that does not linger leaving a great refreshing feeling.

Slow poured from a can to taste activation pint glass. Beautiful copper color with a ton of carbonation. Clean malty and floral taste without a lot of the bitterness that typically comes with an IPA

Ditka's in Oak Brook Terrace, IL. Bottle. Pretty good IPA. That's my review. Pretty good. There are just so many IPAs out there right now that I have a hard time differentiating.

Nice american IPA of a somewhat transparent yello color and a small foam that leaves almost no lace.
Taste and smell are really crispy, malty but not to much, somewhat fuity (passion fruit as the highlight) and somewhat hoppy too.
Body is light, carbonation is ok; crispiness and bitterness define the feel of this beer.

Crisp clean IPA. Not a lot of citrus or floral smell. Only mildly bitter, more of a dry finish for me.

I didn't like it. The body was much too thin, and it was too bitter for the amount of maltiness.

This beer sells for about a buck a can in the 15 packs in Missouri. For that price, this is the ultimate Summer session.

Hazy yellow color with a multiple finger head that leaves some lacing. Subtle aroma of hops and citrus, but nothing particularly jumping out at the nose. Taste is a pronounced version of aroma. Balanced body of citrus and hops with a decent kick from the hops at the end to remind you it is an IPA. Very smooth body that has a slightly bitter aftertaste as the beer gets warmer. Light body with medium carbonation and no alcohol aftertaste.
It was the only craft beer at a wedding and it was very good. Nice and balanced and quaffable. It's drinkable year round and was pretty good on a summer day.

12 oz can, tulip glass

A – Light amber in color and mostly clear. About an inch of white bubbly foam recedes quickly to about half a centimeter, which retains for a while.

S – A ton of piney hops, light resin, and some grapefruit following behind. Low malt aroma is biscuity, just browned. A touch of papaya in the hop profile as well.

T – Golden biscuit malt with a bit of bread crust. Piney-woodsy hops with a light grapefruit note. A lot of hop bite, but not excessive.

M – Moderate-high carbonation, sudsy up front. Very dry throughout, and medium-light bodied. Just a touch of sweetness, then high bitterness that builds to the finish and lingers afterward.

O – Fairly easy drinking but still bold, complex, a lot to enjoy about it. This is one of my favorite back porch, summertime beers (in the can or at least a shady spot to protect the hops, of course.) Really good beer.

I keep seeing the 15 pack of cans in my local liquor store for $20, and it always impresses me. It's got some really nice citrus notes, and it's easy to drink, especially during the summer. Great bang for your buck beer, and I love drinking it.

Pours a straw yellow with low but active carbonation. Good head froth reduces to very good lacing. Smells of pine and grapefruit. Good mouthfeel. Crisp. On the nose you get pine, herbal flowers, and grapefruit. Mid-palate you have some bitter hop notes and some spice. Lots of grapefruit, citrus, and some lemon grass. Back palate you get more bitter notes and some lemon. Aftertaste is fairly clean with lingering pine and citrus. Pretty good. Very sessionable as promised. 3.75 out of 5.

Just bang average for me. Very disappointing, even for a session.

Summery: A great session ale... I am slightly bias to Founders beers. Still it's the value in the 15 'Brewers pack' for $17.99 that really makes me get giddy over it. Adding on to the fact that it moves rather fast at a few local shops, means I can almost always swoop this less than a month old. Such a great value and readily available go-to~

Very light taste for an IPA - doesn't have the body I want. Very light hop profile and seltzer like finish.

Think most people are rating this as an overall IPA, not a SESSION IPA.

3.01/5  rDev -22%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 3

A: Bright, golden-orange with a short head that dissipates quickly, leaving some lacing. Crystal clear, no haze.

S: Piney hops, with some peach/apricot thrown in.

T: Some vague piney hoppiness; not much there, to be honest.

M: Nonexistent. Very thin - aside from a bit of carbonation, this beer practically disappears as it passes over the tongue. Disappointing.

O: Looks good, smells good, but doesn't bring much to the table, so to speak. I know compromises need to be made when it comes to making session IPAs, but I expected better from Founders.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: clear; deep gold in color; 1 finger off white head that receded slowly to a thick cap; very nice lacing;

S: really nice; strong; pine with some tropical fruit;

T: as with most session IPAs, the flavor doesn't stand up to the aroma; a little earthy, a little pine, a little tropical fruit - just not enough of anything; no noticeable malt character; mild bitterness on the finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish;

O: for a session IPA, this is as good as I've had;

OH Yum so glad I found this beer and so glad they put out the 15 can packs. Much cheaper that way. And what a great name because I was totally looking for a beer I liked that I cold drink a lot of! LOL Smooth flavorful and not too strong!
