4.1/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy, golden color. Gigantic fluffy head that sounded like a bowl of Rice Krispies for about 10 seconds; lots of lacing. The carbonation sits heavy in the head but consists of random bubbles elsewhere.

Massive aroma of piney, citrus hops mixed with mild, sugary malt. Notes of butterscotch, cilantro, and spicy bread.

Silky on the tongue that leads to a firm crisp feel. A blanket of hops converge into a sour-pine flavor that adds grapefruit, lemon, butter rum and rounds out with a boozy, moderate bitterness. The mouth is left somewhat numb with a film that lingers; brown sugar malt also in the after taste.

A very solid beer all-around and a hop lovers delight. Founders is one of my favorite breweries where I have yet to sample a poor offerig. Pick up one of these four packs and I hope to see more of this in the future.
