Poured into a snifter on 2/23/12.
Appearance: Poured a hazy golden orange color with visible carbonation bubbles. About one inch of foam settled down to the top of the body quickly.
Smell: Pine aroma along with some less pronounced citrus notes. Hoppy, but not jumping out of the glass like some DIPA hopbombs.
Taste: Initial caramel malt flavor is overtaken by the piney hops. Citrus flavors came out more as it warmed, with a dry and bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel and average carbonation. Dry finish and minimal alcohol tasted.
Overall: A good DIPA that is not quite in the top tier for the style.
Serving type: bottle

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!
