12oz can into pint glass
canned on 4/7/16
L- hazy orange, with choppy foam head, leaves a rocky cap on beer
S- tons of citrusy goodness, with hints of sweet malt
T- starts off tasting murky (is that even possible?) hints of lime, with a pleasant piney finish
F- light bodied but in a good way not watery at all, light carbo as well
O- Founders does a great job with the session-ability, light drinking, great smelling, with slightly sub-par taste

Bottled on Feb 24th and reviewed May 29th, so take the 90 day period into account. We're slowly going through the 'sessionable IPAs and there does seem to be a lot of them. The Founders version pours a nice, rich amber that says 'IPA' and has a good head and lacing. Aroma has floral hop notes which fade a little as the beer sits. Taste is hop forward and dry with some astringency. The beer is not as smooth as some of the others. Overall, a good IPA and easy on the ABVs. Founders does not know how not to make a bad beer.

Picked up a fifteen pack (sweet gimmick, like old Stroh's) today at Lowes Foods. Reddish golden color with spotty, soapy head with miniature lace. Nose is cirus based with a touch of bitter pine. This is a beer I've planned on reviewing for a while.

Solid bitterness throughout the flavor, mostly pine and lemon. Unfortuanely, I do feel there is an abundance of carbonation midway through the sip. The aftertaste, like the whole beer, is pleasant but restrained. Texture is mostly okay apart from the carbonation.

I guess I'd characterize this as the "light beer" version of an IPA if that didn't sound so preposturous. Decent, and probably tasty while paddling up a river but not an IPA to look for generally.
