Have been enjoying out of the can at home. Crisp, the right amount of bitterness without being cloying or heavy and finishes clean. Definitely a fan.

This beer is one of the most drinkable ipa's I've ever had. It has a strong hop punch but with only a 42 ibu it is easy to drink and well balanced. Pours a cloudy light amber orange with a light head. Highly recommended

For a session ipa this is great. It should defiantly be a 90 or above on ba score. Notes of citrus and grass. A little light in the body but that should be expected for 4.7 abv. A nice lingering citrus finish. I have had this in bottle as well and it is not as good but on tap I would put it up against any other session ipa out.

I really wanted to like this beer. When I first tried it, I thought "Oh, a nice clone of New Glarus Moon Man." But that's where the similarities stopped. It's like a beer spritzer. Weak, yet hoppy, and I felt myself not really wanting to drink it. It quickly went flat, and I'm only drinking more to try and catch a buzz. I wouldn't buy it again, and I'm wondering now if Founders has gotten too big for their britches. I think their quality is slipping, and a brewery I once thought could do no wrong, is proving me wrong. Don't bother.

As good as double jack which I love but a very different taste. It's hard to describe but I would say a strong fruit flavor rather than pure hops. Founders brewery never disappoints and I look forward to trying more from their collection. One of the best beers for the price. Could certainly be called a session beer.
