Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours a really nice yellow color with a finger of soapy white head, mid range lacing.
S - Very floral in aroma with some nice pineapple and lime hints.
T - The floral and pine hit you first, and then you get a nice touch of some ripe pineapple and a touch of honey, some real balanced light malt and a touch of dankness as it finishes.
M - Kind of cloyingly sweet at first, but fades to a nice bitter end.
O - This is a very well done Double IPA, crisp and fresh flavors, but a bold brew by all means. A must have for IPA lovers.

I don't even know where to begin. You know how after you drink an amazing IPA you taste it at random times of the day in the future? Well this beer did that to me.

Juicy hops cones, ripe blood orange, grapefruit, mango. Long sweet and bitter finish. This beer has it all, and it officially in my top 3 DIPA along with Enjoy By and Sucks.

Poured Double Trouble in to a pint glass.

A - The hazy orange beer looks beautiful for a Imperial IPA. It has a small half finger of head with a aggressive pour.

S - First thing I get is grapefruit, some citrus, orange. The hops comes through with a little pine as well.

T - Wow, a lot going on here. It has some bitter hops, grapefruit again, malt sweetness in there to really balance this beer beautifully. Obviously there is some strong hop character with pine. Very nicely done here.

M - This is where this beer shines, its nice and smooth with quite a bit of body to it. I would put it somewhere in the medium range, it just coats your mouth really nice for a IPA. Lovely stuff here my friend.

O - Just another solid offering from Founders. Enjoy! Cheers!
