look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a crystal clear straw colour with a hint of orange. Decent size head that fades.
S: Tons of grapefruit, citrus and pine.
T: Same as the smell. Kind of honey like sweetness. Awesome hop flavour with not too much bitterness.
M: Nice carb. Sweetish finish (like hop syrup)
O: Great Double IPA

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Poured out a hazy amber color with two fingers of off white head. Great retention and a ring of lacing all the way around the glass.

S: Sweet grapefruit, orange, and tropical fruit.

T: Similar to the smell with a bitter bite on the finish. Not as malty as expected for a double.

M: A luscious medium and creamy body. Carbonation is on the lighter medium side.

O: Wouldn't expect any less than a fantastic brew from Founders. The bitter bite can arguably be off-putting for some but it is not overwhelming. What was surprising is that this seemed a lot less malty than many of the other DIPAs out there and it stands out with a wondeful creamy body.
