Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a nice white head that lingers and laces.
Smells of tropical fruit, some caty-ness, and pine. A nice mix of hop character and a big aroma.
Up front bitter fruit, stone fruit that goes into more of the same in the middle with a citric/orange character that ends with notes of pine and grapefruit and lingering bitterness. Has lighter fruit notes and a heavy/pine bitterness with just enough malt to balance.
Medium to heavy body with medium carbonation work well enough. It is noticeably warm and bitter...making it seem not as refined as some of the better DIPAs.
A good DIPA that hits a lot of the great hop flavors, minus citra overload, but it is heavy and highly drinkable. Not that that is a bad thing, but it is different from a lot of more quaffable DIPAs. I like it and would get it again.

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!
