On tap at Bonds Tavern. Despite being a true Founders fan, I was wholly not impressed by their take on a session beer. Unassuming, golden hue with mild hop presence in both the nose and taste. Although sessionable, this would not be my brew of choice to drink all day.

A - Partly hazy, with nice carbonation. Very small, 1/2 finger head that quickly dissipated (may have been an older bottle).

S - Very nice note of grapefruit. Very even smell.

T - Lovely even flavor: grapefruit peel, lovely bitterness mid-tongue.

M - Easy to drink, with the sweetness and the bitterness well-balanced and hitting the right spots.

O - This isn't the most full-flavored IPA, but it isn't supposed to be. In fact, it comes across as good, if not better, than much higher ABV IPAs. My first sip, I was disappointed, until I remembered it's 4.7%; every sip thereafter just got better and better. A very solid beer, all the way to the bottom of the glass.

On-tap at the West Lakeview Liquors Founders BBQ event during CCBW.

A - Pours a golden/orange color, white head, thin cap, slight spotty lacing.

S - Solid dose of bitter hops, pine, citrus, orange peel. The hops, pine, and citrus are wonderful and create a very nice nose. Nothing too overpowering and very solid for a 4.8% beer.

T - Pine, citrus, slight dank hops. Tastes "bigger" then 4.8% by far. I would say this is a 7-8% beer rather then 5%, very impressive.

M - Light, crisp, refreshing, with an oily finish.

O - I had a couple pours of this one, as it's just so easy to drink. Didn't totally blow me away or anything, but for what it is, it's def an excellent beer.
