Poured into a tulip glass.
A - Pours a gorgeous strong golden color with some copper hints. A nice .5 inch head is present. When it recedes in leaves a nice thin film with some sticky ring.
S - Sweet grapefruit hints with a citrus backbone as well. Nice grassy hops! SO appealing. Some nice biscuit like grain is in the nose as well.
T - Nice grapefruit citrus quality first off with a nice mix of sweetness. A nice grain back bone guides the massive hop character of this beer. I can see why all the comparisons with HopSlam. Some nut like quality right before the massive hop bitterness and citrus character carries the beer down. Nice bittern dry finish.
S - Crisp, medium body with a nice hop earthy tone. Nice CO2 content.
D - Incredible for and IPA and a beer with 9.4 ABV. Good Job.

Thanks to whatever MN BA that posted this little gem was available in Hudson, WI. I ran over the next day to grab a six pack; love me a good DIPA, & have enjoyed almost all of Founder's brews to date, so what's not to like.
Poured into my new Dunedin pint glass, the beer is clearer than most IPAs, innocent enough looking brew. Well...I physically staggered when I stuck my nose in DT while walking out of the kitchen, I'm glad I didn't spill any. Holy crap. The hops are coming off this thing in a hurricane-strength storm surge. My inner hop-head is yowling at me to drink it. DROP THE KEYBOARD, MORON, TAKE A DRINK.
This is good.
The first sip is such a riot of hoppyness that it just about sears the top of my mouth...you know, like when you have too many sweets? That's what I'm getting. The second & third sips follow close behind. C'mon, geez, where's the balance? Nowhere to be found. Good! Bring your hops to the party, DIPA, & leave them nasty malts behind.
My tummy is warming after about 2 oz. My nose is numb. My mouth is going numb. Maybe they should sell this in those tiny liquor bottles, because after that I'm already starting to long for that first blast to the head.
Truly a top-shelf beer & a first class DIPA. These are folks who know that you CAN'T PUT TOO MANY HOPS IN DIPA. Kudos to them!
