A- Poured into a pint glass. Nice hazy golden color leaving a little head that went away quickly. Lacing around the sides of the glass from swirling of the beer.
S- Fruity hop smell (pineapple) with a very faint malty background. I only caught a whiff of it come one or two smells.
T- Crisp hop bite from the start to finish. Pineapple and citrus overtones come through very nicely as it lingers after you swallow it.
M- Little heavy the whole way through. that's not a bad thing though. Oily resin covering over the tongue which locks in the hops flavor after swallow.
D- Overall, pretty good Founder's product like usual. Since Hopslam is around 7 or 8 dollars more I would rather drink this and have a good DIPA.

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!
