3.78/5 rDev -10.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Hazy orange, gold. A thin head that dissolves quickly.
Smell: Lots of grapefruit and orange peel. A decent amount of bitterness. Not as much pine as I would have though. A decent amount of pine but not as strong as other DIPA's.
Taste: Lots of bitter grapefruit. Grapefruit bomb. Bitter. Some pine and alcohol. Very little sweetness.
Mouthfeel: A pretty decent amount of carbonation considering how little head came out when poured. Decent thickness.
Overall: This was a pretty big grapefruit bomb which isn't a preferred style of IPA for me. I know there are some people that love this stuff and I can appreciate it and how well the alchohol is hidden in there, but it's just not for me.

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!
