4.75/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Tasted July 25th 2011 (from review)

Poured into a la Chouffe tulip

Double trouble

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!

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

From a bottle into a pint glass. 5/1/14 is the bottle date.

A: pure gold with very little head and nothing for lace on the glass.

S: nothing but hops on this one. Possibly some floral notes mixed in but with the overwhelming hops it's tough to pick out.

T: hops from start to finish. A bit of fruitiness like grape or pineapple accompanies the hops. No malts at all.

M: heavy on the bitterness. Coats the whole mouth with hops. The flavor sticks around for a good minute before starting to fade.

O: So so good. One of the best DIPA's I've had to date
