Glad to see this one as beer of the month at Pints in Elmhurst.

Served in standard shaker, the beer is a nice copper with a semi-clingy beige head.

Classic pine and caramel malt taste. Balanced and well put together. I like the citrus and pineapple that sneak in late.

The mouth is a trifle thin, but that is kind of expected for a session beer if this style.

Pours a slightly straw color with some haze, with thick head of white creamy foam. Nose is delightfully aromatic with loads of herbal, grassy hop notes with some pine & citrus. Palate is surprisingly light to medium bodied, noticeably drinkable right away, yet follows through nicely with a good full flavored balance of herbal hops, citrus tang, and light cracker-like malt. Good drinkability, refreshing, yet flavorful.

Big 20oz pour looks a golden amber with a thick fluffy white head. My kind of look.

Citrus overload. Orange, pineapple, grapefruit, and mango. Pale malts might offer a little toastiness according to the nose. Biscuity with a touch of honey. Smells sweet and ripe.

Grapefruit, orange, and tropical fruit hoppiness. Smooth and light. Drier than the nose. Toasted malts with a dry crackle. Carbonation is moderate to high with a latent spice kick. Tongue-lashing with hops, yet deceivingly bitter. Body is drippingly smooth. Quite the flashy session IPA.

Solid IPA. I expected nothing less and got what was deserved.

All day IPA pours a frosty copper color, with a very small head. Their is a strong malty/hoppy floral aroma mixed, very unique. The taste is much of the same strong sharp maltyness, with strong floral bites. Very full flavors, nice strong body. Overall its not bad, very unique, maltier then other IPAS.

Bottled: unk (rubbed off)

It's a lightly toasted golden raisin with a solid sheet of fine whipped toasted cream foam atop. Smells of resin, pine, some grain and a little metal. Nice and assertively hoppy on the nose, has what I consider a classic PNW smell. Flavor follows suit with resin, pine and some body oder...Maybe a bit of grapefruit pith and a solid amber like malt character with a bit of biscuit. Medium bodied with slightly soft carb and an off dry finish. The beer reminds me of Bitter American from 21st Amendment, and since it's on the shelves around me, and canned, it would be my go to over this one. Good though.

A- Pours a pretty clear golden yellow color with a thin white head. Head is gone in a flash and pretty much no lacing at all.

S- Pretty much picking up all fruity hops and no malts. Usually I'd say this is a good thing but the smell is very very light.

T- Again fruity hops are here but they are very light. A bit of a bready taste is here too.

M- Lighter side of body and carbonation was good.

D- I suppose this is a fairly easy to drink beer. I was a bit disappointed in this one and thought it was rather boring.

A - Minimal (less than a finger's worth) snowy white slightly lush crisp head... The head quickly fizzes away leaving a full veil of slightly frothing lacing and moderate collar... Loads of moderate to rapid paced swirling carbonation... The color is a pale golden straw color with a slight glowing amber hue... A slight bit of lacing clings to the glass...

S - A very inviting complex hoppy nose that is far from overpowering... Grapefruit... Orange zest... Some floral hops... A very light malt base comprised of graham crackers and biscuit...

T - An enjoyable bitterness to start... Lots of piney and floral hop notes... Lemon zest... A light pale malt base barely registers... The bitterness is even and consistent throughout...

M - Light to medium bodied... Limited carbonation... Ever so slightly on the thin side... Goes down easily with each and every sip...

D - This is an ideal alternative to the not so hoppy spring and summer seasonal offerings... Highly quaffable... Quite refreshing... Simple, but with a enough depth, character, and complexity to keep it interesting and enjoyable... Not my favorite Founders offering, but one that has a spot in my spring/summer rotation... I would have no problem drinking several of these in a sitting, but I guess that's the point...
