look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured from the twist off 12oz bottle into a nearly sam adams glass, some other crystal beer tasting goblet.
Appearance- Beer pours yellow and lightly hazy in the bottom of the glass, more orange and hazy towards the goblet portion. A soft half finger of white head rises and falls but lacing retains on the sides of the glass forming a perfect smiley face with horns, a coincidence, but very neat looking.
Smell- The scent on this is phenomenal, orangey citrus and grapefruit, a bit of earthy yeast, sweet base malts, perhaps even some lager malt in there. There is a sweetness that sticks around that is very pleasant.
Taste- Light bitter tanginess, so much hop but not as much as the triple IPA, Devil Dancer that caused blisters on the tongue. This is a good thing, I can drink this one and it doesn't hurt me near as badly until the alcohol catches up. The sweetness is still here lingering making this one smooth DIPA. Sad that it's only in 4 packs for the winter season. I've been going IPA bonkers this winter and in quantity.
Mouthfeel- Creamy, sticky, not astringent, bitter, warming, smooth, medium full bodied, and lightly carbonated.
Drinkability- This is an excellent drinker and I would choose this as my lawnmower beer. I would be hot as hell, but I would be happy.

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!
