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

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.

A - Pale gold, slight haze, head has decent retention and lace.

S - Real nice nose on it with a fresh, juicy citrus hop bouquet of grapefruit and pineapple. Little malt sweetness.

T/M - Follows the nose, with a bit of honey malt sweetness mid palate. The light body really falls off on the back end, turning watery by the time it goes down. Leaves behind a pine/ambiguous bitter feeling.

O - Sessionable, just like it was meant to be. However, if the carbonation maintained itself through the whole mouthfeel, this would be a phenomenal brew. But it just falls flat and watery half way through.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottled 3/2/12.

Copper pour with red hues. Minimal head and lace. Hoppy aroma showcases a nice blend of fresh Citra hops, among others. Taste is hoppy with a sharp, piney finish. No malt. Not the best flavor profile here, but this isn't a typical Founders style. Thin body, could actually use a little more carbonation.

An average session beer, I guess. Founders can do better for the style, but if I want a beer that tastes like this I'm picking Zombie Dust every time.

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.

All day IPA pours a frosty copper color, with a very small head. Their is a strong malty/hoppy floral aroma mixed, very unique. The taste is much of the same strong sharp maltyness, with strong floral bites. Very full flavors, nice strong body. Overall its not bad, very unique, maltier then other IPAS.

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.

3.57/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

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.
