Hazy straw edges with bubbly orange center, frothy white head with good retention and lacing. Light sweet floral aroma. Strong alpha hop lightly sweet citrus/floral quickly gives way to resinous hop then melding to a light barley and yeasty finish. Moderately high hop linger nicely settles to an unusually, precariously balanced position. Slick and syrupy with no stickiness.
Not a whole lot of clear flavors but well-crafted and interesting display of ingredients. Strong but never overbearing, it’s particularly interesting without a big malt backbone. It may be as much as 6 months old (the dates were smudged) but it still has an interesting quality, possibly because of the yeast strain. At any rate, I easily downed 2 and would hope to try on tap at some point.

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!
