My first Founders brew doesn't disappoint one bit. I'd consider this a solid and satisfying IPA without the "session" modifier. That said, it would be hard to find a better session beer of ANY kind, especially pale ale or IPA. Will be seeking this one out again.

Did a blind taste test with this against some formidable non session ipas and chose this. This is now my go to session beer. Can be hard to find fresh in NE but will always pick up if under two months old. Props to the obvious 'packaged on' date on the outside of the 15 pack. Founders certainly gets it.

Poured into pint.
Pours almost clear golden with big off-white head, good retention.
Smell - clean citrusy, pine tones.
Taste - well-balanced with ample citrus hop characters
Light, crisp,
Outstanding session IPA.

L: Nice orange/amber hue. Modest foam head that dwindles.

S: Smells like summer. Citrus, sweet with light pine notes. Clearly, an "up north" Michigan summer beer that captures the elements.

T: From a mason jar, the taste is familiar yet non-aggressive. You do even pull faint lime notes instead of oranges or grapefruit.

F: Light and crisp in the mouth and not punishingly bitter at all. Clean, easy drinker.

O: Drinks too damn easy and is a great IPA to introduce people who are new to craft beer or for those that are looking for a summer alternative to mass produced beers "with lime."
