Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.
Pours a dark amber with half a finger of tiny bubbles.
Smells nice and hoppy with a good kick of alcohol.
Tastes really nice, big hoppy flavor, big makt backbone and alcohol.
Mouthfeel was surprising for such a high ABV IPA, no alcohol burn at all.
Overall, I was very impressed with this beer. Tasty, no burn. Delicious.

On-tap at Founders Brewing. As fresh and you're gonna get it.

A - Ruby red, gorgeous. Light cream collar, awesome lacing, oily and slick.

S - Major, major hop. Pine dominates, grassy. Some sweetness and booze.

T - Bitter, and very malty. Drinks like a barleywine, and I love em. Alcohol adds a slight burn, but still smooth. A little out-of-balance, but tastes great.

M - Full-bodied like a high-gravity Barleywine. Medium carbonation. Sticky.

O - Fantastic, and though a bit pricey, I always get it once it comes out, and drink it fresh.
