As always with founders, awesome artwork on the label. Poured into a tulip. Half finger of bright white head, with foggy glowing orange body. Dank fruity hops on the nose. Lots of citrus, melon, a little lemon zest. Palate is smooth, and full. Lots of sweet malt balancing a bitter hoppiness. Some nutmeg or some other spice on the back of the palate. Smooth as hell and not too carbonated. Awesome brew!

The appearance of this beer is confounding. After a fairly vigorous pour, it appears a bright, shiny gold but offers little head on the glass. From my reading this is not typical, so its possible I got a got a bum batch. It smells fantastic, and the aroma might be its best quality about it. Very citrusy; lots of grapefruit and not overly piney. The taste is sharp and seems to try to do too much. The citrus holds throughout, but the beer seems very malty, almost like homebrew extract. Not nearly as smooth as many other IIPAs. Overall, this beer is overrated. I am a big Founders fan, but this beer underdelivers. After finishing my four pack, it left me wanting more.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A-a clear golden color with about two fingers worth of white head

S-grapefruit, bready malt, citrus, and fruity sweetness

T-similar to the smell with lots of grapefruit, bit of pine, pale malts, and tropical fruit sweetness

M-medium to full body, very smooth, bitter finish

Overall a very nice contrast between sweet and bitter, very easy to drink with nicely hidden alcohol.
