4.38/5 rDev +3.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
A - A gorgeous orange color with minimal head, about 1/8" of an inch, and a lacing that sticks for a short time and then slides down the side of the glass. It shows a good amount of carbonation for a DIPA.
S - Loads if citrus notes such as orange, grapefruit, star fruit and pineapple. No alcohol present which is a plus. Maybe some sour notes on the back end.
T - very citrus forward with the flavors of the aromas mentioned before. Layers of resin pine and malt linger after each sip. The finish is at minimum 30-45 secs with mild bitterness.
M - This is a delight to hold in the mouth. Nice and creamy with a mild spice from the alcohol on the cheeks. No burn at all upon swallowing. Very well balanced.
O - Founders does it again! When these were released this year, I drank a 4pj right away only to reveal they were very young and abrasive. With a few months in the bottle, they have calmed down and started to come into their own. Very complex and enjoyable even to a novice just getting into beer. Need another 4pk before they are gone for the year.

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!
