3.93/5  rDev +2.1%

Served in a Stone Ruination IPA pint glass.

A- Dark pilsner in color, 2" off-white head with large bubbles, and minimal blotching of bubbles with a thin ring around the surface of beer.

S- faint pilsner malts, some floral and citrus with a primary smell of pine that comes through.

T- Semi-sweet malts, some citrus but again more pine/earth hop bitterness to this beer.

M- Light body with medium carbonation. Slight viscous feel as well.

O- Good beer. Not sure if this should be classified as an IPA. More of a pale ale with its thin body, low malt bill, and bitterness. Reminds me of a lighter, less citrusy Zombie Dust.

A- Pale amber body with a thin white head. A slight hint of cloudiness, but overall looks very light bodied.

S- Very piney hop aroma along with some floral notes and a hint of grapefruit. Overall smells very good and approachable.

T- Packs a lot of hop flavor during the taste, but finishes rather light of flavor. Expected for the low abv, but there is almost no noticeable malt presence to balance the taste.

M- High carbonation, medium-light bodied. Definitely an easy-drinking session beer.

O-It is hard to judge this one based on the style, since the idea is a more sessionable IPA. On flavor alone, there are many more IPAs that pack more punch. As a sessionable IPA however, this one is very good.

3.55/5  rDev -7.8%

Adequate finger high head of loose off-white bubbles, not quite foam per se, clears off swiftly to a ring around the edges, the lacing is super-thin but does form decently wide streaks before evaporating. Yellow gold colored liquid with a soft orange cast, only a few fat bubbles visible, scattered about, looks “basic” and unassuming. Piney nose with raw grains, grass, yeast and grapefruit rinds, more floral than fruity, more wheat as it warms, overall has a fresh, taut character, good balance and no burn. Medium-bodied, tight and slightly overly aggressive carbonation, keeps it scrubbing into the tongue which favors bitterness over sweetness. Pepper and herbaceous green grass, grains, pine, black tea leaf, the blood orange and grapefruit pith drying. Thin dusting of cocoa and allusion to anise, malts not contributing much to the final equation. Seems to pull back on just about every ingredient, wants a close race among them all, as a result more calculatedly balanced than integrated. You lose interest after the second bottle.

A - Pours crystal clear amber with a frothy white head. Sheets of lacing cling to the glass.

S - Citrus fills the nostrils, grapefruit, orange, and lemon, bright fruit, pineapple, white bread yeast with a biscuity pale malt underneath.

T - Follows the nose with bright grapefruit, tangerine, lemon and orange. Nice hop flavor with ample bitterness. Tangerines show up and the pale malts support the zesty citrus with some grassy and slightly spicy hops coming in as it warms. Finishes crisp and clean with a pithy grapefruit bitterness.

M - Light to medium body, solid carbonation, crisp and clean finish.

A great session IPA, especially for the ABV. Grapefruit dominates with a light pale malt base. It's crisp and clean and you could drink this all day... get it.

4.15/5  rDev +7.8%

A stunning amount of flavour for the 4% ABV listed on the chalk board at the pub attached to the brewery.

Bright golden colour with limited head and no lacing. Not a tremendous amount of body, but enough for mouthfeel to remain pleasant. An awesome "west coast" hop aroma with brilliant citrus notes. The flavour is heavily grapefruit oriented and truly delicious. A lingering bitter aftertaste completes this very tasty beer.

Definitely a stellar "session" ale!

4.03/5  rDev +4.7%

Bottled 3/2/12

A: Medium honey/gold. Really good clarity, small white head. Not much lacing.

S: Nice zesty citrus and lemon nose. Some sweetness as well. Kind of reminds me of double trouble in a way. Smells way stronger than I thought it would, really surprised by that.

T: Lemon and light pine hops. A bit of grapefruit and just a hint of sweetness. Not much of an aftertaste and it dies off pretty quick as to be expected with a sessionable IPA. Still lots of flavor packed in here.

M: Light body, average carbonation.

O: Of course this is very easy drinking, they definitely accomplished that. A good amount of hops and flavor and the nose is fantastic. For what it is, I think Founders did a great job as usual.
