My first review, so bare with me.
Poured into a Unibroue tulip glass
A: Appears golden, unable to see through the golden color, decent head and lacing
S: Citrusy, tropical fruits, tangerines
M: Not bad, a step above the average beer's mouthfeel but nothing to write home about
T: TANGERINES! Literally tastes like tangerines, with a hoppy grapefruit like finish, pineapple as well?
O: This is a new favorite for IIPA's, while this may be my first review on BA, I have been trying every IIPA I can get my hands on and review them off the record, but I finally decided it is time! I'd highly recommend this beer especially if you don't mind your IIPA's to have that tangerine, grapefruit like flavor. The malt in my mind is very subtle, but with this beer style, I think that is fairly normal. Either way, this is a solid 4.5 beer in my book, can't wait to have another. Cheers!

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!
