Thank you to Jamie for this.

A- golden orange color with a stiff white head about two fingers.

S- almost has a piney resin aroma with some undertones of citrus and some fresh parsely

T- very smooth for a wet hop. strong hops dominate but a nice amount of malt is picked up. citrus and wood also come though

M- creamy and bubbly with a nice bite from the hops but not overpowering.

O- Awesome beer. My first review of a founders beer and i can say i wish i lived in MI.

Poured from a bottle into a brand spankin' new Firestone Walker tulip. Pours a hazy, translucent straw hue with a finger and a half crown of foam that dissipates after a minute or two, leaving some sparse lacing behind on the sides of the glass. The nose is a real winner. What a hop profile. Nearly absent of the citrus quality many IPA's have, this is real subtle and mellow, but hoppy nonetheless. The taste is neither piney nor a citrus bomb. Again, the hops are at the forefront, and while they're far from burgeoning, they're not meek either. It's just a perfect, mellow hop presence. The mouthfeel has a decent bitterness to it that trails off into a creamy finish. This is a real smooth beer, and one that I love, and anyone who wants a more sedate representation of the style would thoroughly enjoy this.

Pours a golden color with a barely off white head. Decent retention and lacing. Smell is a bright, crisp citrus of pine, orange and resin almost spicy; super fresh. Taste is big on the pine and resin with a powerful initial bitterness, but is quite mild in the end. Overall if you are a big piney IPA fan the you might of found one of your favorites. Very good, but I prefer the tropical citrus ipas.
