Slightly-hazed clear golden color with three fingers of off-white head that leave thick lacing. Muted aroma of pine, grass, melon and faint white pepper. Light tasting, with just a hint of crackery malt, and then a weak mix of the same hop flavors from the nose with some muted citrus, too. Definitely very sessionable, but not a ton to hold my interest beyond being a thirst quencher.

For the style, which I consider more of a pale ale since that is basically a session IPA by nature, I believe this beer is the best. It has a great bit of citrus, with mild malt flavor. It is super crushable and a great beer when you just want to take it a little easy. Again, I consider this the best one in this style. Founders is my go to when I don't know what I want since they produce high quality beer.

I ran into this beer a few summers ago on a trip to Cleveland/Detroit/Grand Rapids (good trip Marty). Although it just has that slight hint of malt on the edge of the nose, I really like the citrus/fruit scents from this beer. I get peach/pineapple and sweet orange. Flavor not near as varied nor as sweet as the nose with citrus and bitter elements but decent none the less. A bit more mild in flavor altogether. Crisp finish.
