A slightly hazy golden color with virtually no head. Very minor lacing.
A strong sweet citrus of apples, peaches, pears, and spices. Very pleasing.
Hops are a wonderful eclectic blend presenting a sudden blast of floral flavors and a somewhat toned down bitter spice. However, bitter flavor is perfectly balanced by a moderate malt backbone.
Mouthfeel is terrific - a viscous, thick bodied assault!
Drinkability is good too. Carbonation is not overwhelming by any means and the burning alcohol present in many hopped-up IPAs is pleasingly absent.
I certainly can't find much negative about this blend. I suppose the appearance is its weak point and I prefer a slightly more bitter flavor in an Imperial. Overall, an excellent brew.

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!
