Massachusetts

4.33/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: pours a hazy straw/hay with a white head that quickly dissipates to leave patchy lacing, doesn't look like your everyday DIPA

S: smells fantastic, super hoppy citrus tropical and lots of really heady skunky buds, if it were weed and it smelled like this I would have no problem paying $65 for an eighth

T: this is one tasty motherfuckin beverage, the hops dominate the flavor but there is a nice sweet malt backbone to it, mostly tropical fruits, some pine and citrus, bitter dry finish

M: medium bodied with some decent carbonation slightly sticky

D: alcohol is barely noticable making this very drinkable but after 3 or 4 you'll be gettin tipsy.

Another homerun for Founders, I really like this beer because it reminds me of Pliny the Elder. Definitely one of my new favorite DIPAs

Quebec (Canada)

4.35/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

served from bottle, slightly over a month old.

pours a hazy straw-yellow. small rocky head that dissipates and clings to side of glass.

smells of pungent hops, cannabis, pine, and tropical notes with citrus (this beer is brewed with Summit, Simcoe and Amarillo hops)

front of the tongue has a big wallop of bitterness that quickly transitions to a pungent, dank taste - the sort of typical Simcoe taste. follows with a nice sweetness, citrus and tropical notes, slightly sugary. really well balanced!

overall, this is a great DIPA. great representation of the style, and this brew is incredibly balanced between pungent bitterness and sweeter notes.
