I picked this up in a growler at the newly finished Founders Brewery downtown. That place looks amazing and I have to pinch myself that I live in the backyard of such a world class brewery.

A - Pours a deep burnt orange with good clarity and huge silky smooth head. Nice retention and foamy lacing with every drink.

S - Grapefruit, citrus, piney, hop resin, caramel, malt.

T - Lip smacking citrus hops, piney, nicely balanced with malts and caramel undertones. Really smooth mouthfeel for a DIPA and easy to drink.

O - This is one of the top DIPAs out their and I would put it up against any of the top dawgs. Fits my flavor preference for a DIPA - huge citrus notes and nicely balanced with some caramel malts. This is a must have.

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.
