12 oz. stubby with lots of sediment in the bottle - conditioned? 86 IBUs. It is a chill-hazed golden orange, with low carbonation and a half inch of whitish head that leaves some bits of lacing. Toast and fresh bread in the nose, with lots of piney, citric and tropical hops, and a breath of alcohol. The malts smell great and are well-integrated with the strong dose of hops. It has a delicious malt flavor as well, lightly sweet, with orange, pine, pineapple and tobacco-flavored hops that impart loads of bitterness. Medium body, with low carbonation and a nice long bitter finish. It's great to finally have a double IPA that isn't overloaded with crystal malts. Quite a dangerous brew - delicious, smooth and deceptively high in alcohol.

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!
