Purchased on 7/19/14 with a 'Brewed On' date of 6/17/14 making this bottle a little over a month old. 12 oz. Bottle poured into my Tree House Brewing tulip glass.

A – Poured with a thin, white head that dissipated quickly leaving clumps of small bubbles on top. Has decent lacing on the glass but doesn't really cling tremendously well. It has a slightly hazy, gold color. I find it a bit lighter in color than other DIPAs I've had.

S – Nice citrusy, fruity hops right up front. I'm getting some pine/resin with a lot of mango, tangerine, and orange. The malt sweetness is hiding in the background and isn't overpowered by the hops. Really nice smelling DIPA...it's making my mouth water waiting for my first sip!

T – Mmmm, very nice. I get the tropical fruit/citrus hops right up front which melds right into piney, resinous hops. It leaves a long, bitter and dry aftertaste, which isn't unpleasant. There's a lot of hop oils in this one...it's really coating my mouth well. Malts are subdued and offer a solid background for the hops to shine on. After a few sips I'm starting to notice the 9.4% abv. Certainly not overpowering but it has enough alcohol presence to notice it's there. Overall a very nice tasting DIPA.

M – The oily hop resin really stands out to me in the beer. It fills my whole mouth. Above average carbonation...a bit high in my opinion but I don't think it takes anything away from the beer. Not the most creamy IPA but the mouthfeel is still smooth and luscious.

O – Very good DIPA. It would be well worth checking out for any hophead out there. I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I didn't know how well Founder's would do with a DIPA but they really succeeded with this one.
