Very Good
Notes: IPA with a subtle malt bill, providing a glorious golden hue while letting the 7 varieties of hops shine through. A portion of each pint sold goes to benefit ALS research.

On tap at the brewery's taproom in Grand Rapids Michigan.

Appearance. Clear amber colored body with high clarity and a good white head.

This tastes quite different from the Founders IPA yet both are excellent. This IPA has a fine hop mix with herbal, grassy, fruity and faint evergreen notes.

Nice easy-to-drink sessionable IPA, if a bit safe and straightforward. Sampled this one on tap at Founders. Clear golden color, no real head or lacing to speak of. Smells nicely of floral hops. Tastes of floral hops, more than the faint citrus hops. Some nice grain and malt in there as well. Very little bitterness and nice, easy, smooth finish with mild mouthfeel. Just the right amount of carbonation.
