look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

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.

This beer has nothing an IPA fan likes , but everything someone that wants to be an IPA fan can drink. Overall disappointed . I have had other sessions that tasted pretty good. Easy to drink, but in a way that you want to drink more to get that IPA hoppy, bitter taste.

Poured to about a one inch slightly offwhite head. Brew itself was brownish gold in color. Left a little lacing, but nothing to brag about. Had as light hoppy smell. Maybe a little sweetness going on. Not a real strong hoppy flavor noticed. There were notes of citrus and pine. Also had a quite strong bitter aftertaste. The bitter left as fast as it was noticed to me. Felt good in the mouth. Carbonation was good. I thought this would taste like Two Hearted, but there was no comparison. Two Hearted was better. But then again, Two Hearted with its higher alcohol content isnt (to me) a session beer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Appearance - Crisp, golden yellow. Slight bubbly haze as the carbonation rose up. Looked nice. Eventually settled and looked like a basic American macro.

Smell - Immediately picked up the Amarillo hops. Very nice. Hints of bread. Not much else.

Taste - Blah! This is what I feared. Empty, hollow shell of a body. Can almost taste the alcohol, it's so thin. Distant hints of pine and citrus. Bitter, funky aftertaste. Ugh.

Mouthfeel - Light body, med/high carbonation, damp finish.

Overall - Big disappointment. I really wanted to like this beer too. Oh well. There are plenty of sessionable beers out there for similar prices that actually have flavor and body. I wouldn't bother with this one.

This beer is a cloudy, yellow amber color with earthy/soil aromas. The hops are slightly overwhelming with a strong bitter finish.

2.63/5  rDev -32.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Golden with good lacing. An appetizing ale.

Smell: Pear and pineapple. I especially like the pear, but this is a bit sour.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Extremely bitter, and not in a good way. Skunked pine cones. It is smooth, but definitely flat.

Overall Drinkability: I can officially say I've found a Founders beer I don't like. They say every dog has its day. Whatever the opposite of that saying is...this is it for Founders.

Changing my rating from 4 to 2.75. All was well with this one until I bought a case of it in cans. Pretty sure ive had it in both can and bottle. Hoppy seltzer water is the best way to describe it. Stones Go To and Free Will Lower Case IPAs are better examples of 'session IPAs' in my opinion.

Mediocre beer. Good in the summer. Like that it comes in cans. Eh

A very good IPA. Probably the best I've had, but I'm just not an IPA guy. But if there were an IPA I could drink all day, this would be it.
