12oz bottle poured into wine glass.
Pours a lot lighter than I expected, a light apricot. With a very thin white head. The aroma filled with lucious citrus hops, tons of grapefruit and orange. Some of that pine every bodies talking about too. Very pleasing smell.
The taste is where this one falls off the wagon for me compared to the great DIPA's of our time. It's solid, but lacks the overall direction certain other brews have. The grapefruit is very noticeable as well as the pine. It just doesn't come together for me. The feel is great, full bodied with a dry bitter finish. The price point is also way too high for what you get. To me this is the worst value in DIPA land.

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!
