Very good session IPA. Probably my favorite. With not too high of a alcohol content this really is a drinkable beer. Great dry hop smell and flavor. Founders does a lot of things right

Canned & bought as a big box of beers and ales for the Christmas festivities
Pour a cold clear golden body with big foaming white head that stays
Nice big citrus set against florally aroma
Flavour hops hut first then like many sesion IPAs lacking malt backbone
This makes it seem slightly thin

Served from tap into a sampler tumbler. Poured a golden yellow-orange with a minimal pure white head. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, pine, pine hop, and citrus. The flavor was of sweet malt, pine, pine resin, wood, and citrus. It had a light feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. Sometimes beer names don’t make any sense to me, but this one made perfect sense upon trying it. I had heard from another guy who had tried it the night before and raved about how good it was. I just kind of nodded my head and told him that was cool. Not really expecting much I brought it to my nose to find a very pleasant aroma going on here. Everything in it was very pronounced and was quite intriguing. Upon taking a sip I realized why Founders named it this. The flavors were all really nice and pleasant, but they were quite light which made this a beer that one could *gasp* drink all day. Really well done brew from Founders this time around as I would be more than happy to stock up on this to drink around the pool during the summer. I suggest you get this on your palate soon if you have not already.

Pours a small hazy deep yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, mellow orange citrus hops. In the taste, dryer hops, with a mellow citrus end. A small hop bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry hop, with notes of orange citrus in the aftertaste. Perfect for what it is, an IPA light!

A - Yellow/amber colored beer with a mild amount of head, lacing, and spots. Not the best looking IPA in the world, but at least it's not ugly.

S - Pine, citrus, some underlying malts. Actually has a nice bit of aroma for something with this low ABV.

T - Taste is pretty nice as well, with good citrus and some resiny pine on top of a malt backbone. Nice hops, with a bittering dry finish.

M - Lighter side of medium with some tongue-poking carbonation, gives it more of an edge.

O - Surprising amount of heft and flavor for a beer with this ABV, great session beer that would go well with food.
