355ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

Slight hazy in texture and dark gold in color, thick frothy white head builds up and stands with good retention before slowly sinking to thin everlasting foamy sheet on the surface, plenty of sticky lacing web and patch appeared along the glass-side.

Loads of hoppy goodness with notes of citrus, kaffir lime, floral, resin, pine, and somewhat earthy yet grassy while malt is also there with notes of sweet breadiness and caramel.

Nice hoppy flavor with notes of juicy citrus, pine, oily resiny, there is a bit spicy also. Malt establishes as a flavor canvas with a sweet breadiness while it is hop again in later stage to wrap up all the things with a clean bitterness at the end.

Light to medium body with smooth mouthfeel from its lively carbonation, the feeling is crisp and refreshing, dry and clean finish.

Really go direct and not complex in order to be sessionable, anyway, it does not compromise in the part of hop. It still has vivid and lively hop character in both aroma and flavor.

Basically a pilsner marketed as an IPA, which I find annoying. I tried 6 session IPAs recently, including Founders All Day IPA, and five of them tasted like pilsners. The sixth was more larger than anything else. The information below pertains to Founders.

A - Golden and clear
S - Slight hop aroma with citrus notes present
T - Vaguely hoppy
M - Heavy on carbonation
O - I rated this low because of the apparent marketing ploy to get IPA lovers to drink pilsner-style beers.
