4.73/5  rDev +12.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Dogfish Head signature glass.

A: Poured vigorously into the glass with the result being a very present, off-white head which quickly subsides. There's a nice 1/2 a finger head retention throughout after it subsides. The brew is a very deep, almost Tootsie Pop orange in color.

S: The aroma is definitely very hop-forward with this beer. Definitely something you could expect with a double IPA. The hops are pretty astringent in the nose. Also, the hop character is very citrusy in nature with this beer.

T: Big hop presence in how it tastes with a big malty background as well. I think that the hops definitely dominate this beer, but you can still taste the malt going on in the background. This beer finishes rather dry and the hops linger slightly on the tongue. I get a little Pine along with some citrusy fruitiness.

M: The mouthfeel is generally smooth, although the hops disrupt this a little bit.

O: This beer is definitely a solid DIPA. Very tasty and hoppy as you could expect from Founder's Brewing.
