From top to bottom, there is simply no framework better then Foundation 4. Although this release is fairly recent, I would have said the same about Foundation 3. The base is solid, functionality is well documented, the theme roller does it's job, and the bonuses are very well done (Orbit Slider, Icon Fonts, etc). The responsive css examples are very helpful too.
Twitter Bootstrap has become invaluable and probably done the most to push the responsive "cause" in the industry. It's a 12-column responsive grid that makes a great starting point. Twitter Bootstrap should be high on the list of any responsive project and has done wonders for the use of grids in web design.
Gumby shows a lot of promise and has made drastic moves with their v2. Now running SASS is a plus and I must say, I think it's documentation is the best in the field.
Responsive Grid System uses solid responsive columns and codes very cleanly. That said, the learning curve is a bit steeper.
Base is not too shabby (once you get used to it) and is very stable. The primary downside (for me) would be the documentation.
