Second bottle from a Founders 4-pack I got earlier this year through a trade. 2012 bottling, so it was probably only two months old when I originally got it. I know it's December, but I felt like a big IPA for whatever reason.
A: Beautiful deep, dark orange. Small head that doesn't hold its own.
S: Nice pineapple and pine character, big maltiness is predominant. Some generic citrus hops and bubble gum. Fairly sweet.
T: Booze and sweetness hit the palate first, then followed by citrus and finally dry bitterness on the finish. Keeps pumping flavor into your mouth after swallowing, pretty amazing.
M: Fairly boozy, definitely not over-carbonated. In fact, it seems a little flatter than it should be for this kind of brew.
O: I haven't had many TIPA's, but this seems like a more than fair example of the style. Very boozy, sweet and almost spicy hot, but the hops do a good job of keeping things balanced. Real hopheads might want to steer clear of this, but if you don't mind some heavy malts and booze in your IPA's, this might just be a fridge staple!

12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to nothing quickly. It is an amber copper color with good clarity and vision of slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Floral, grassy, pungent, citrus, onion, garlic, booze, and caramel.
Taste: Same as above. Burning tingly boozy sensation going down. Even after warming up, it's still the same.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, low carbonation, tingly bitterness, and real boozy. It's definitely a sipper.
Overall: It's been a while, but still tasty. Should have held on to this one a bit longer.
