From Jim's

A - golden straw, light for style, spotty lace. Little head.

S - lively hops, citrus, apricots, tangerines, peaches.

T - big hop hit, full flavour. Citrus, pine, apricot, lychee, all the right noises. Moderatley bitter, good malt backbone.

M - low carbonation, smooth, just short of oily. Nice.

O - I am not a Founders fan, but this is well made and well priced. Top stuff.

Poured a bright brassy hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured herbal and tropical fruit.

The taste offered a complex, yet clean tropical fruit hoppiness with a soft caramel sweetness.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty and rather well balanced DIPA.
