12 oz bottle was poured into a snifter.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that has reduced to a thin layer. It is a golden orange hue with some clarity and bobbles coming up through the glass. Some lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Hints of pine and lots of citrus in there, followed by some bready, crystal, and sweet malts. Very clean aroma to the beer.
Taste: Citrus all the way baby!!! Well balanced and has a subtle bitterness in there too. Alcohol is well hidden and the bitterness is actually enjoyable. It is a very clean beer.
Mouthfeel: smooth, full bodied, medium carbonation, a little chewy, easy to drink, and very tasty.
Overall: A very well balanced and enjoyable DIPA. I have had this on draft and in a bottle many times before. This one can be enjoyed over and over again.

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!
