Let me start off by saying that this whole "session (insert beer here) drives me crazy. A session IPA is a pale ale. A session imperial stout is a stout. A session doppelbock is a bock. This is not an IPA, no matter what you call it. My review reflects rating this as an IPA, of which classification it officially belongs.

Pours a wonderful golden amber color with a small and slightly wispy white head. There is some sporadic lacing, but nothing like most IPAs I see.

The aroma is wonderful. Full of fresh hoppiness. Citrus and piney. Grapefruit, lemon zest, caramel malts to a lesser extent.

The flavor is awesome for a pale ale. Plenty of hop flavor, some fresh baked bread, a bit of grainy malt which I love, light malts, dry as a bone.

The mouthfeel is nowhere close for the style. Very watery and thin, super dry, high carbonation, but a solid bit of bitterness. Think IPA plus tap water.

I enjoy the aromas and flavor but the mouthfeel and alcohol are completely non existent, which is a big part of an IPA.

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.

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.

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.

a beautifully clean copper/gold color with a finger of white head, lots of visible carbonation. smells very hoppy, grapefruit, pine, caramel. the flavor is mostly hoppy, definitely tasting the 2row, grapefruit, pine. medium body on the lighter side, moderate carbonation. a very refreshing and tasty ipa. the lower alcohol percentage makes it a perfect summer beer.

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.
