look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
12oz bottle into my Captain Lawrence SFTO tulip. Can't seem to find a bottled date on any of the bottles, but these are definitely fresh.
A - Pours a hazy light golden color with a fluffy 2-finger white head. Lots of cool looking lacing.
S - Wow, lots and lots of citrusy and tropical notes. Smells very hoppy. Light alcohol presence in the nose.
T - Huge hoppy flavors. Los of tropical fruit tastes. Strong grapefruit tastes that bring along bitterness and dryness. Doesn't seem to be overly bitter at all. This is 9.4% ABV? I could see this getting me in trouble.
M - Somewhat thinner than I expected. Very crisp and bubbly carbonation.
D - If you're a DIPA fan, this one would be easy to put a few back during the night. The alcohol is masked very well here. Definitely worth seeking out.

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!
