    Founders All Day IPA is my first choice, but the new one from Bell's, Oatsmobile, is very tasty. Arcadia's Cheap Date is pretty good too. (Hopefully you like hops if you choose any of these.)

    I second everything goose said above. Founders Palm Reader is new and pretty solid. For some non-hoppy stuff:

    Oddside Troll Toll
    Right Brain Smooth Operator
    Blackrocks Grand Rabbits

    MLive posted an article about a month ago detailing some Spring beers to check out as well. Worth a look over.

    I'm ready to obliterate many sixers of Bells Quinannan Falls when it's released this June.

    Perrin grapefruit IPA is pretty tasty and sessionable on a warm day, also Dark Horse just released a wit that looks mighty tasty!

    Perrin's No Problems is a fairly new session IPA that's not bad.

    I like having a Founders Rubaeus in the summertime.

    Black Rocks Grand Rabbits and Nordsky have been my go to's. Founders Palm Reader is pretty great. Looking forward to Shorts Hopstache and Bells Quinannan Falls. Hopefully Black Rocks will do Presque Ale again this year.

    All Day IPA all spring/summer.
    Rubaeus for sure in the summer.

    Definitely Nordskye, best Michigan made session IPA in my opinion. Also, Mosaic Promise is pretty sessionable at 5.5% ABV I believe.

    I like Right Brain Will Power better than either All Day or No Problems. I think it's got a touch more maltiness, whereas the other 2 seem like straight-up hop water. Still very light and only 4.2 abv.

    Odd Side citra pale ale can't be beat, and now that it's in cans, I'll be crushing that on the beach. I also second Incorrigible.

    Mosaic Promise is a great seasonal under 6%. Perrin Gold is a great session beer at 4.8% and in cans.

    Does anyone know when Nordskye is coming back out? Love that stuff.

    Looking forward to Poolside from Bell's. Also, it would be remiss of me not to mention the panty-dropper beers of Hopstache and Freedom of '78. Lawd.

    Blackrocks Grand Rabbits makes for a great kayak brew.

    Looking forward to test out cans of Soft Parade on the lake too.

    Twisted Helles and Grand Rabbits are perfect for warm weather. Backyard session IPA is solid, Oatsmobile is great but probaly won't be around very long and Nordskye is the best session IPA I've ever had
