Pours a straw yellow with low but active carbonation. Good head froth reduces to very good lacing. Smells of pine and grapefruit. Good mouthfeel. Crisp. On the nose you get pine, herbal flowers, and grapefruit. Mid-palate you have some bitter hop notes and some spice. Lots of grapefruit, citrus, and some lemon grass. Back palate you get more bitter notes and some lemon. Aftertaste is fairly clean with lingering pine and citrus. Pretty good. Very sessionable as promised. 3.75 out of 5.

Just bang average for me. Very disappointing, even for a session.

Overall 89 /100

Summery: A great session ale... I am slightly bias to Founders beers. Still it's the value in the 15 'Brewers pack' for $17.99 that really makes me get giddy over it. Adding on to the fact that it moves rather fast at a few local shops, means I can almost always swoop this less than a month old. Such a great value and readily available go-to~

Very light taste for an IPA - doesn't have the body I want. Very light hop profile and seltzer like finish.

Think most people are rating this as an overall IPA, not a SESSION IPA.

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.
