Appearance: This beer pours a crystal clear vibrant sparkling honey color. There is an ever slight pure white lacing around the glass and a twinkling effervescence like fine champagne.

Smell: This beer smells fantastic. There is a rich honey and floral aroma followed by a full deep citrus character. There is grapefruit, star fruit and honeydew all in a wonderful balance with each other. There is a slight sweet hint of honeysuckle and fresh cut flowers.

Taste: In the taste I'm surprised to pick up a sweet bread character. This is followed the taste of bitter orange peel and fresh cut greens. There is a definite grape sweet component as well like a nice glass of Pinot Gregio. There is tart green apple and a slight sweet clover honey component. There is a linger bitterness of orange and lemon rind fresh cut grass.

Mouthfeel: This beer has a creamy soft mouthfeel along with a dry clean finish after the swallow.

Drinkability: This beer is definitely a sipper. That being said, I could easily drink a few of these while sitting at a bar talking with friends or as a nice after dinner drink.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Founder's makes some fantastic beers. This is the second IIPA of theirs that I have had and it definitely did not let me down. It has a beautiful aroma and a flavor that is perfect for a sippable beer. I think the lingering bitterness might turn away some customers, but for those that don't mind a nice hop bitterness bring your finest tulip glasses on over.
