12oz bottle. sampled feb 4/2011.
pours nearly clear deep golden yellow with a small cap of fine white head. the head drops slowly and leaves a bunch of spotty lace as it falls.
aroma is great. resiny pine and powdery grapefruit. tangerine and orange. hint of alcohol. caramel and toffee. hint of vanilla. white bread and cracker. touch of biscuit.
taste is great. powdery grapefruit. sweet candied orange and tangerine. resiny pine. caramel and toffee. slightly toasted white bread. cracker and a touch of biscuit. lightly warming alcohol. just over medium bitterness level.
mouthfeel is good. just over medium body with a slightly drying finish from the hops. medium carbonation level.
drinkability is great. nice balance. good hop depth and a nice malt character. good stuff!

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!
