Packaged 4/11..looking forward to trying this with freshness upon it.
Light orange pour, light carbonation, a bit hazy but not murky, little bit of lace.
Aromas of faint citrus hops and slight sweetness. Not much here. Not unpleasant, just light and disappointing. Like finding out your son is ballerina. And he's a terrible ballerina.
Nice bitterness, good malt and hop balance, a little booze present. Grapefruit, floral, a little pine. Decent flavor but it's not outta control like I expect from these guys. A little light on body, and overall a bit of a disappointment.
Not bad, but not up to my Founders standards. Probably will try a bottle of the new batch when it comes out next, but I doubt I'll be excited about it.

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Pours a filtered light golden amber with a frothy off white head that quickly fades to a clumpy film with streaks of lacing.

Aroma is mildly solventy with a pleasant grapefruit citrus struggling to gain the upper hand. Generally overly sweet and boozy in the nose.

Body has a strong caramel malt sweetness with a lingering, excessively dry sweet citrus finish. Thicker side of medium body with light carbonation, the net effect is an overly sweet, tangy DIPA.

A solid DIPA if you find it fresh (and don't mind some harsh booze), but nowhere near the class of this style.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Sampled a while back. Bottled 1/7.

A: Hazy gold with some yeast residue. Thin white halo with a little bit of lacing.

S: Pine, musty earth. Pretty muted sadly.

T: Hops have faded I think. Malt is taking over, making it a bit messy. Some sweetness, but it seems less hop forward than last year's.

M: Tingly carbonation that doesn't linger too long.

O: I loved it last year, but just liked it this year. Would have loved a fresher bottle or on tap, but I worked with what I had.
