Orange, one finger head did not last long. It's fairly cloudy and with a small amount of carbonation.
I smell grapefruit, pepper, and as it warms it starts to smell more sweet, I think it's honey I'm detecting.
I get a very nice citrus like hop flavor that is not overpowering. It's hoppy for sure but not mouth puckeringly (is this a word) hoppy. The hoops are balanced quite nicely with a toasty, bready malt backbone. Also, like the aroma I'm picking up a peppery flavor.
Medium bodied and mouth coating. As mentioned before there is a wonderful balance between hops and malts. It leaves a pleasant pine-like after taste.
This is one outstanding beer. I like that this IIPA is balanced. Sure there is a nice hoppiness but there is more to this beer than that.

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!
