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.
