4.05/5 rDev -4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A - pours a pale golden yellow. A thin film of white foam rises and quickly dissipates to a ring around the edges.
S - almost entirely hops. Herbal, resin and pine are most prominent followed by notes of citrus and tropical fruits such as fleshy pink grapefruit, bitter orange peel, pineapple rings and mangos. Light bread crust malt character.
T - lightly sweet bready malt on the front. Tropical fruit notes intensify the perceived sweetness with notes of pineapple. Grapefruit rind and racy hints of lemon pith come into play in the center. Finish is long bitter and resinous.
M - light side of medium bodied. High carbonation.
O - well made ipa. This is the style is tend to prefer for my ipa/dipas. Lighter bodied with satisfying bitterness but plenty of tropical fruit flavors for balance. Good stuff.

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!
