On tap at Founders. Poured into a tall almost pilsner style glass. Golden amber color with zero real head poured. Good aroma of hops but not really citrus or piney but almost fruity type hop aroma. Fairly hop forward but pretty light. Like the hops. The back end falls apart a little for me. Lighter mouthfeel. Not bad overall.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass. The label lists the abv at 4.7% and the IBUs at 42.

Appearance: It has a clear, honey amber colored body with a small off white head. There is some visible line’s of carbonation supporting the slow fading head. Leasing is minimal and slick.

Smell: Big notes of citrusy grapefruit fills the nose with light candy like fruity bass underneath.

Taste/Palate: The palate it feels a bit light and thin. A mild malt bass slowly gives way to mild citrus and pine like hop bitterness in the finish.

Notes: Overall after the aroma it gets a bit boring.

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.

Pours a clear gold with one finger thick white head, spotty lacing. Smell: big grapefruit stank, herbal, pine, light apricot note in back. Taste: citrus rind, herbal, peach tea, spicy and rindy finish. Feel is light, a little too slick. Still tasty and refreshing.

12 oz.

Pours a light honey gold, white head dissipates to a lacing almost immediately.

Smells of honey and piney grapefruit hops over papery malts.

Mild bread malts, slight vegetable bitterness with piney dry hops serving as the majority of the flavor.

Medium body with a soft tingle of carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A decent but boring session ale. Easy to drink. Wouldn't turn it down again, but it is fairly forgettable.
