Appearance is golden but hazy, with a nice dense white head.
Smell is pronounced, with wildflowers, and fresh berries. Nice hint of sweetness too.
Taste is the IPA taste that makes me wonder why people drink IPAs on a regular basis. Laden with so much grapefruit its hard to distinguish anything else. That being said its an incredible grapefruit taste, and it is what most IPAs are known for so take my rating with a grain of salt. I personally find it overwhelmingly sour, though this one is somewhat decently balanced with a hint of sweetness, and other grains.
Mouthfeel is decent, not super creamy, but definitely has more substance to it than water.

Tasted July 25th 2011 (from review)
Poured into a la Chouffe tulip
A - pale straw, half finger white head and some lacing
S - very sweet, tons of citrus, lots of tropical fruits and flowers, very sweet, lots of malt, slight pungent yeast and all around awesomeness
T - super hoppy, lots of sugar, tons of fruit, grass, yeast, wheat, nice sweet malt, boozey but not to boozey, very slight MJ note. Very simple but tons of flavor
M - Full bodied, excellent balance, simple complexity, medium acidity and a very nice almost perfect hop, malt and sugary booze finish
D/O - This is the kind of beer that makes me want all beers to be readily available all over the America's! One of the better DIPA's I have had and most definitely makes founders worth the "hype"
Final Thoughts - at 9+ ABV this beer kicks it into gear and is one of the better DIPA's. Still, not being easy to obtain, make this beer obnoxiously awesome!
