look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Bottle dated 10/3/13

A: Pours an apricot orange colored body. Appears very heavily carbonated. Bright white, dense, pillowy head. The retention is awesome and sticky lacing clings to the glass well.

S: Piney hops dominate the initial waft. Citrus peel bitterness. Oranges. Grapefruit. A small hint of mango.

T: Sweet lemons and oranges initially, followed by strong, dank, pine. Sharp bitter bite in the finish - I was actually surprised the IBUs wasn't higher.

M: Oily. Medium Body. High carbonation. Crisp and clean.

O: Another stellar offering from Founders. In my top five of all the "wet-hop" brews I've tried.
