12 Oz bottle. Bottling date 12/14/16

Pours a hazy honey colored body with a white head. Not much retention. A little thin lacing

Overall smell is not very prominent.(perhaps because it's 3 months old?) I'm getting mostly lemon citrus with a little malt

Taste is a little bolder then the smell. The hop bite is very slight

Slightly prickly feel

There is a lot to like about this session IPA. It's very drinkable and the price of a 15 pack of cans cost less then some 12 packs of other beers. I bought this single beer to see if I wanted to invest in a 15 pack next week... I think i will!

This is my go to beer for a long day of drinking, like on a Saturday during college football season. Saw the new 19.2 oz cans and picked up 5 of them for 1.99 each! 15 pks and now these great tallboys. There's certainly better beers, but it might be the best session ipa. Especially, for the price and convenience of the packaging.

Hazy gold appearance with finger thin head that quickly dissipates. Very little lacing. Smells of hops and lemon. Thin and watery with high carbonation. Decent maltiness up front with slight taste of lemon and a decenct hop profile. I know this is a session IPA so I get the watery mouthfeel and high carbonation. But there are a lot better IPA's out there. Not bad for a low alcohol version though.

Just a fun little refreshing Session IPA. Sharp & bitter, it will wipe that gunk off your tounge. A: clear, pale. S: plain ol' hops. Not a lotta citrus, maybe a little pine. T: The finishing hops aren't killed by the bittering hops. total thumbs up.
F: just fine

12 ounce can poured into a tulip

A: Pours an amber orange color with a white head, slight lacing, minimal head retention, looks light.

A: Subtle aromas of citrus like grapefruit and lemon, touch of pine, tangerine, solid aroma.

T: Sweet citrus notes upfront, tangerines, lemons, touch of grapefruit and pine bitterness in the middle, finish has lingering notes of grapefruit and pine, some citrus sweetness as well.

M: Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation and a dry finish.

O: This is pretty good, good amount of flavor and aroma, amazingly drinkable. Now I understand why this is sold in 15 packs, I could see myself crushing a few of these while doing yard work or bbqing.

Got this at the local Sav-a-lot for $19.99 a 15 pack of cans. Had to dig deep for their latest packaged date which was 7/9/16. I know you're supposed to drink beers fresh, but I took a chance. Glad I did...I think a can's life is longer since no light gets in at all. Anyway ...it pours a nice head..looks light orange...medium lacing...smell is not real apparent..taste is mildly bitter...definite hops here..grows on you with each sip. I have become a big fan of Founders brews.

Poured to a tulip glass.

A: The body is yellow-y to orange with a good crystalline look although not extreme, since there's a fair amount of haziness in this beer. The head is white, minimal, but showing good retention and minor lacing.
S: The aroma is very citrusy, having tangerine, orange and a bit of pineapple. Closely, there is a big resinous profile.
T: The taste is sweet of ripe tangerines followed by a big resinous profile, ending in mild malt profile.
M: Body is medium to medium low. Carbonation is high however, it's not visible. Alcohol is unnoticeable. Bitterness is high.
O: It's a very fresh and easy to drink IPA. The drinkability is valued on this beer.

Very little aroma even on opening (can). Drank from pint glass, nice amber color with a little haze. Plenty of pine in the taste. Moderate carbonation.
