Average. Not bad but not great. Like an "IPA Lite". Less filling. Works great for while working outside without being too full.

A: Bright, golden-orange with a short head that dissipates quickly, leaving some lacing. Crystal clear, no haze.

S: Piney hops, with some peach/apricot thrown in.

T: Some vague piney hoppiness; not much there, to be honest.

M: Nonexistent. Very thin - aside from a bit of carbonation, this beer practically disappears as it passes over the tongue. Disappointing.

O: Looks good, smells good, but doesn't bring much to the table, so to speak. I know compromises need to be made when it comes to making session IPAs, but I expected better from Founders.

Typical IPA, Clear yellow color with a touch of murky. Aroma has some pine and citrus. Same with the flavor. Bitter finish. Orange Rind. Hoppy. Good carbonation. The lower alcohol doesn’t really make this more drinkable imho. Pleasant nonetheless."

Appearance: orangey gold with a thin white fizzy head, and great clarity

Aroma: very grapefruity, strong tropical fruit aroma. No malt character.

Taste: very thin, actually surprisingly thin tasting. Almost no malt character and almost all grapefruit hop flavor. It actually tastes likes hop steeped water.

Mouthfeel: very thin and light bodied in a way that is wrong for the style. Medium carbonation

Overall: Disappointing for such a great brewery, especially one known for such strong beers like Dirty Bastard. No malt flavor makes the beer taste like hop steeped water.

Poured a nice, a clear orange amber with a light white head.

The smell was light and floral, light bit of grassy hops.

The flavor is mild, a touch of light caramel bready malt and a bit of light pine and citrus hops, flavors are clean and balanced but very underwhelming.

The mouthfeel is a touch thin, even for such a low ABV beer.

There really aren't any flaws here, its just very underwhelming, I was expecting more of a dry hopped prescence. Should be Blah day IPA.
