This is my favorite IPA right now. It has a very sharp flavor and is obviously very hoppy, but well balanced. I really like that it is a session beer so it is lower in alcohol, making it more enjoyable to drink multiple because a lot of IPAs right now are fairly high in ABV.

This is a great beer if you like IPA's, and want to drink more than 1 without getting too drunk. Also a great summer beer.
Appearance: clear orange color.
Aroma: hints of hops, citrus and pine.
Flavor: very hoppy with notes of pine and lemon.
Overall: I prefer higher percentage beer, but overall it is very enjoyable.

I've been enjoying Session IPAs of late and was looking forward to having this one purchased on a recent road trip to Michigan. Nice bitterness, pleasant aroma but perhaps a little weaker in overall flavour than I've had in other offerings in this style. Overall, a good example of the style that I would purchase and drink again. More proof to my tastebuds that one cannot go wrong with an offering from Founders.

A - golden yellow pale in color. About an inch of foamy suds after an aggressive pour. Zero lacing and head retention to speak of.

S - Piney, earthy, grassy, weed, bong water, faint citrus notes.

T - Big flavor for the low alcohol content. Tastes more like a standard IPA than this session ale. Nice hoppy profile to start, some sweetness, followed by an overly dry finish. Crisp mouth feel.

O - This has turned into my go to session ale and I actually like to drink it more out of the can that from the bottle. Huge flavor and juicy drinkability in this brew.

Wow. A nice resiny, hoppy, piney drink.15 cans for under $20?!? How can that be beat?
This will be a staple of my summer BBQ parties. A great tasting, low abv beer at a nice price? Who needs corona?

Well done, Founders! You've produced just about the perfect summer beer for people who like good beer. Taste, drinkability and price! Bravo!

12 oz. Bottle poured into a pint glass.

Light amber color. Pours out with a rich thick head that that lasts several minutes, but interestly leaves little lacing. Relatively low in alcohol. Nothing remarkable other than its lightness, making it enjoyably refreshing.
