This beer is one of my absolute favorites. Very good dark caramel color, slight orange, with a white head. The smell is strong hops and other florals and citrus fruits. Very good on the tongue, definitely very hoppy. Strong flavors that last awhile, makes you want that second sip. Very refreshing, 100% recommend.

This beer was very good and somewhat strong. It appeared dark yellow and you can taste the wheat hints in it. Refreshing and smooth, can never go wrong with an IPA.

A nice session IPA.
Nicely aromatic. Hops and malt seemed in balance; better than many in the style.
Had with a medium-spicy pan-Asian dish and it went OK.
Also had with a mild Asian dish and it went better as the hops cleared the grease.
This won't be the best IPA you taste, but it does its job well enough with spicy food.
Overall, I gave it a 4 as I like Founders and its role as the pioneer brewer in regenerating Grand Rapids.

Not typically a fan of IPAs because I don't like hops, but this particular IPA was not very strong and tasted very balanced and full, overall very enjoyable!

I've been drinking the double IPA's all winter but since warm temps are finally here in OH I want to get outside and get some work done at least somewhat sober! 8.5% - 11.5% would give me crooked mower lines so this is the perfect combination of great taste and lower ABV.

The color, smell and feel is about the same as other lower alcohol summer brews but taste is that of a higher end beer. At only $17.99 for a 15 pack is a great deal for a hot summer day when working outside.

I was a little sad after ordering when I discovered that this is a session ale :-)
It's one of the few IPAs I've ever had that I thought had too little hops. Nice slightly orangish color with a good off white head. The smell is a nice west coast citrusy smell (cascade hops?). The taste is likewise dominated by the hops although I also get a little watery on the finish; that may be attributable to the lower ABV. It's a good beer although probably not going to be on my regular rotation.
