Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass.

A: Pours a nice honey color with minimal head and almost no lacing.

S: Lots of citrus and pine. Lemon, orange, and grapefruit mixed with the earthiness of the hops.

T: All hops up front with nice citrus balanced with a nice malt backbone.

M: Medium body that coats nicely. Refreshing to drink.

O: Really nice DIPA. Will add this to my list of ones to seek out.

4.41/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Beautiful golden orange yellow, slightly translucent. Minimal head, no real lacing.

Nose is super citrusy, with grapefruit, lemon, orange, hint of peach.

Taste is full of citrus up front. Grapefruit dominates, with a hint of honey and peach again. Follows with a biting, crisp bitter hop.

Medium full mouth feel leaves a nice coating.

Great DIPA. Super fresh. Super crisp. Tons of citrus. Not the best out there, but totally great. Balance is a little off for perfection, but flavors are dead on.

A - A gorgeous orange color with minimal head, about 1/8" of an inch, and a lacing that sticks for a short time and then slides down the side of the glass. It shows a good amount of carbonation for a DIPA.

S - Loads if citrus notes such as orange, grapefruit, star fruit and pineapple. No alcohol present which is a plus. Maybe some sour notes on the back end.

T - very citrus forward with the flavors of the aromas mentioned before. Layers of resin pine and malt linger after each sip. The finish is at minimum 30-45 secs with mild bitterness.

M - This is a delight to hold in the mouth. Nice and creamy with a mild spice from the alcohol on the cheeks. No burn at all upon swallowing. Very well balanced.

O - Founders does it again! When these were released this year, I drank a 4pj right away only to reveal they were very young and abrasive. With a few months in the bottle, they have calmed down and started to come into their own. Very complex and enjoyable even to a novice just getting into beer. Need another 4pk before they are gone for the year.
