Very nice initial taste, but seems rather uneventful at the end. Glad to have this from tap at Pies and Pints.... Founder's is one of our favorite breweries!

Poured into a small chalice: color is gold, transparent, solid small bubbled head that presents at least 1/2 inch thick; head dissipates to light outer ring.

Smell is light toast, some hop presence, mainly grassy/floral hops.

Taste is just a straightforward easy drinking slightly hoppy beer, still find it odd these are considered 'ipas' and not just hopped up pale ales, but regardless the construction is well done and flavors are pleasant. Malt is light, maybe some toast, not emphatic or dramatic; hops are earthy, grass, herbal, hint of citrus rind.

Mouthfee is moderate, fairly strong dry/bitter quality which works at higher strengths with some more malt, but seems distracting on a lighter ale.

Overall, good beer, but nothing to separate from just a well constructed hoppy, pale ale.

Light haze, golden to amber. More than an inch of foam. Big hoppy aroma. Light but earthy flavor with a hint of herbs and iodine. A decent go-to beer that you can find in a can or bottle at most any dive bar. Founder's mimicked the Sam Adams formula and produced a beer that's slightly better.

Canned 3 weeks ago.

This is a very standard, easy drinking IPA that focuses mostly on earthy and herbal characteristics of the hops used. Nothing too special, but often one of the best choices at gas stations, etc.

70/100

From the 19.2 oz (!) can. A very restrained blend of pine, lemon and orange with minimal bitterness. Mouthfeel is a little light, but very enjoyable. Carbonation is on the heavy side of medium. Finish is slightly dry and refreshing. An enjoyable and sessionable IPA.

I am not a hop heavy guy or a high abv lover, but i do like IPAs. This beer was a great find as it allows me to enjoy the style without being blown away by bitterness or alcohol content. Very solid
