Clear crimson body with very slight golden hue with a somewhat thin white head with little lacing. Floral, citrus (orange and pineapple) and pine aroma. Flavor is a touch tangy with mild malt presence with more of the same from the aroma in the flavor with the floral hops coming across more grassy. Lighter side of medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall the hop profile is complex which is accentuated by the mild malt presence.

Purchased on a recent trip to Grand Rapids, MI. Poured from a date-stamped bottle: bright and clear with a deep golden hue with honey highlights. The minimal white-head dissipated quickly.

This one was fragrant with citrus and bittersweet tropical fruit; more aromatic than many larger IPAs.

The first sip was zesty and thirst quenching with a noticeable hop profile. The hop citrusy hop bitterness lingers on the tongue. The flavor profile is not very complex with a faint malt presence.

The body was rather thin with a clean and short-lived mouthfeel. A pleasant bitterness does linger slightly on the tongue.

This is a quite enjoyable session 'IPA' that has a lot of nice flavor for lighter ale. To me, this drinks like a hoppy, American pale ale. I now regret only buying one six pack.

Poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a half finger of off white head. The head fades to a ring around the edge of the pour.

Smell: There is a very mild malty sweetness up front along with a mild hop presence.

Taste: There is a mild pine hop flavor up front and the bitterness builds though the whole sip. There isn't really enough other stuff going on to back up the bitterness.

Mouthfeel: The body is on the thin side of medium with prickly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: Not a bad beer, it's good for what they brewed it for. I think they could have gone a little more conservative with the hops.

Tasted in the bottle purchased at Binny's (Des Plaines) craft your own six pack.

Was interested in this one, since it was brewed in the Midwest, plus the picture on the label is of a jeep with a canoe on top heading to the lake was a familiar sight to me growing up. The name is fun too, and why not introduce a lower alcohol version of an IPA?

I am glad to have tasted this one, because it helps to define the American IPA label and really show how vast the choices can be under it. In other words, it doesn't have to be a blowout in bitterness or a slow drinker to be enjoyed.

The taste, while subdued, is piney, with a bitter edge that is not really strong but is definitely present. It finishes clean and refreshing, and doesn't weigh you down.

I welcome that balance. Good job, Founders.

Pours a rich yellow with a frothy white head that fades into lacing. Smell is fruity and sweet with the hop bouquet. A unique smell coming out that is very inviting. Taste has the subtle sweet and fruitiness, but the hop comes through in a big way, with a pine mixing in with the fruit notes. This is a lighter medium mouthfeel, a nice balance in flavors, good depth. Overall good flavor, a nice IPA that has no bitterness, and is very enjoyable.

6-pack from Total Wine, Charlotte (Park Road).

A: Pours a pale, straw gold into a shaker pint glass; a half-finger, fizzy white head leaves no lace.

S: Tropical fruit hoppiness: mango, apricot, peach - pretty rindy; virtually no malt.

T: Pretty similar to the nose; tropical fruit syrup; sweet - but not really a malt sweetness.

M: Light body; high carbonation; not too dry.

O: Well, its pretty drinkable / nice and tasty at 4.7%... definitely a good summertime IPA - I wish it came in cans so I could take it to the beach.

Bottle (2012)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, dannyfrost!

Clear golden orange with a very small bone-white head that doesn't last long. This leaves the glass nearly clean on the way down.

The best part of this beer is it's aroma and it consists of pine and grapefruit hop aromas, along with a bit of biscuit.

Very simple, drinkable IPA. This is not hugely flavorful, but what's here is nice. There's mild grapefruit and pine, cracker and biscuit, and some grass elements.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

A very simple, straightforward, boring low ABV IPA.

A. Pours out a dark yellow hue with little lacing and not much retention.
S. The aroma consists of citrus, floral and pine from the hops.
T. The taste I get in this beer is some citrus and floral hops, but I mostly taste pine throughout the beer and get a mix of pine and citrus in the aftertaste.
M. A nice easy to drink IPA that has a smooth consistency to it.
O. A very nice IPA to enjoy when you feel like something that tastes very good, but is lower in alcohol than most IPAs.

A stunning amount of flavour for the 4% ABV listed on the chalk board at the pub attached to the brewery.

Bright golden colour with limited head and no lacing. Not a tremendous amount of body, but enough for mouthfeel to remain pleasant. An awesome "west coast" hop aroma with brilliant citrus notes. The flavour is heavily grapefruit oriented and truly delicious. A lingering bitter aftertaste completes this very tasty beer.

Definitely a stellar "session" ale!

A-pours a golden orange with a thin layer of foam that disappears but remains sticky

S-very citrusy. smells delicious

T-a bit thin on the flavor

M-thin and a little watery

O-a little disappointed. it could be deemed a session beer, but for the price, i'd rather stick to miller or coors.
