Date: 4 March 2011
Glass: Sierra Nevada XXX snifter
Type: 12fl oz bottle
Poured slightly aggressively, gives a 1.5-finger head, reduces to a strong 1-finger head, color is cloudy gold, lacing is stronger-than-average.
Aroma is simply beautiful. Ithaca's Flower Power IPA comes to mind immediately. Pine, grapefruit, and pineapple, all on a blanket of light sweet orange citrus. Oh man, this smells just like Flower Power.
Taste is loaded with a front-end of citrus, back-end of pine, mango and sweet hop resins. ABV is hidden extremely well. Tropical fruit sweetness stays on palate for about 15 seconds, and ends with sweet malts. This ought to be a staple in my fridge.

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!
