Just received from BA StayWhatYouAre2. Thanks again Alex!
A - a cloudy, deep yelloish color with bright white head on top. A little cloudier than expected.
S - a ton of nice hops, but also some definite malty sweetness, more so than expected. Fresh cut grass and citrus in there as well.
T - there are the hops! They hit tongue with a nice bite, but are then smoothed out from the maltiness. Very nice!
M - it's got a nice presence, but it seems a little unbalanced. Maybe it's a bit too warm, so I'll be sure to correct that on the next round.
O - a very nice IIPA, but this is the kind of quality I've come to expect from Founders. As always, a solid A beer.

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!
