look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Bottle code appears to be 1421026131916. Bought it at Binny's in Orland Park a couple days ago.

Pours slightly hazy, medium amount of active carbonation, almost no head. Smell is pretty but muted, fresh pine smells and lemon and citrus flowers.

Taste is very nice, honey and lemon dominate for me with a nice bitter aftertaste of lemon rind.

Mouthfeel is light, maybe a little flat. Overall, very nice.

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.
