It tastes great, low ABV, inexpensive, and comes in 15-packs in cans. My fridge is always stocked. If you haven't tried it yet, go for it.

Although lower in ABV than most I take down, this is an outstanding IPA for such a low ABV. I could seriously get into drinking this more often and feel satisfied. Great beer and well done Founders.

Poured from a can.

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.

The problem with most IPA? Of course they're too thick heavy and malty. Who wants to drink a meal in a glass if they don't have to? The problem with less malty IPA's? yeah they're bitter as hell and undrinkable.

Now bring in the "session" IPA. Beers with abv well over the session level and less malt with likely a bit of dry hopping and here we go.

The crystal clear body, minimal lacing, all boring in the looks department.

The nose is hoppy, citrus and well malt free.

Here's the thing, the beer is tasty as hell. Yeah caramel malt is there so far hidden that it's amazing. The one issue is the beer is more acidic than hoppy. Did founders find a way to make this into acid rain to make this week? I can't tell. I still like it.

I love an IPA without malt thickness! This is wonderful to drink!

This is a solid IPA and I love the lower abv and lower malt. It is no go to from stone which kills this one all day everyday but it's good.
