Enjoyed on tap at a Founders tap takeover at Bier Station in Kansas City. Served in a small bulbous tulip-style glass.
Appearance - Body is a bright and clear golden color with stark white head that is maybe a finger worth. Eventually settles to a rim of lacing around the edge and speckled lace on top of the body.
Smell - Wonderfully piney with undertones of fruit--grapefruit and other stark citrus notes. Very little else going on to my nose, but it doesn't matter because the aroma is so intoxicating.
Taste - Fresh and pungent with pine resin and more grapefruit goodness as well as some pineapple and a bit more sweetness peeking through as it warms. Alcoholic heat is detectible but well hidden. Notes of bitterness balance the fruitiness.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Lingering and faint bitterness.
Overall, a delicious DIPA that I feel doesn't get as much love as everyone's favorites, but it 's well worth a mention. I would gladly drink this again and again.

From a bottle into a pint glass. 5/1/14 is the bottle date.
A: pure gold with very little head and nothing for lace on the glass.
S: nothing but hops on this one. Possibly some floral notes mixed in but with the overwhelming hops it's tough to pick out.
T: hops from start to finish. A bit of fruitiness like grape or pineapple accompanies the hops. No malts at all.
M: heavy on the bitterness. Coats the whole mouth with hops. The flavor sticks around for a good minute before starting to fade.
O: So so good. One of the best DIPA's I've had to date
