Appearance: Clear orange golden color with a two finger off white head

Smell: This beer is a great example of what i describe as dank. The fresh wet hops put off an aroma of floral dank goodness with light fruity notes and subtle toasted pale malts. A superb and complex smelling beer

Taste: That fresh wet hop taste is simply amazing. My mouth is immediately coated with the dank character accompanied by citrus fruit and a undertone of pale malts

Mouthfeel: Medium body; its dank and resinous and coats the mouth. Both the bitterness and carbonation is moderate

Overall: This is my favorite IPA i have had from Founders; even better than Double Trouble. The fresh hop character to it is what makes it stand out and the citrus and malt notes round it out superbly. This is one of if not my favorite wet hop ale iv had. I just love that dank quality to it. Its spot on in this style as far as availability goes. Also, at 7.6% abv, this is in that perfect grey area between IPA and IIPA. That being said, i feel this bottle was past its prime with a very subtle malt skunkiness. I can only imagine how much better it is super fresh. When fresh i see myself easily scoring it 4.75. Its that good. Do yourself a favor and seek this out!
