look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottled on 08/04/12 (little over a week old), 12 oz. bottle poured into NB Globe Glass
A- Slightly hazy Golden with orangish hue, nice carbonation, pours half finger white head, dissipates pretty quickly, some lacing
S- Good citrus hop aroma, sweet malts, sort of grassy and floral
T- Delicious hops, juicy cirtrus balanced by a sweet maltiness, some spice, lingering fresh hops and sweetness. Pine at the end. Very crisp and fresh taste.
M- Medium body, some carbonation along with that spice pierces the tongue, juicy , a little oily
O- The aroma and taste of this beer are fantastic. Not the most experience wet hop drinker here but overall this was great, defintiely knew it was fresh.

Served chilled in a Duvel tulip

A - pours a light golden yellow, medium head after an aggressive pour, leaves some white lacing

S - sweet grapefruit hits first, followed by a subtle piny note

T - the grapefruit starts off initially, followed by a significant, but not overpowering, amount of bitter hops. a light malt backbone follows

M - well-carbonated, no hint of alcohol, the bitterness of the hops lingers for some time

O - Great IPA, I missed out on this one last year, so I was very glad to have the opportunity to grab a bit of it this year. Definitely recommend highly, a fairly attainable seasonal from Founders

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottled 10/04/12; Consumed 10/12/12

A: Pours a clear straw yellow color with a fingers worth of sticky white head

S: Loads of citrusy hops jump out as the bottle is opened. Also get a light crackery maltiness, but this is a hop bomb

T: Again, dominated by fresh, juicy, citrusy hops. A light spiciness from the alcohol and crackery malts, but again, this is a hop bomb

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly oily

O: This is a nice juicy hop bomb full of citrus goodness. Not too bitter, so the hops show off their full flavor and not just their bittering ability. Very hard to find, so definitely pick it up if you can find it
