Tasted July 25th 2011 (from review)

Poured into a la Chouffe tulip

Double trouble

A - pale straw, half finger white head and some lacing

S - very sweet, tons of citrus, lots of tropical fruits and flowers, very sweet, lots of malt, slight pungent yeast and all around awesomeness

T - super hoppy, lots of sugar, tons of fruit, grass, yeast, wheat, nice sweet malt, boozey but not to boozey, very slight MJ note. Very simple but tons of flavor

M - Full bodied, excellent balance, simple complexity, medium acidity and a very nice almost perfect hop, malt and sugary booze finish

D/O - This is the kind of beer that makes me want all beers to be readily available all over the America's! One of the better DIPA's I have had and most definitely makes founders worth the "hype"

Final Thoughts - at 9+ ABV this beer kicks it into gear and is one of the better DIPA's. Still, not being easy to obtain, make this beer obnoxiously awesome!

*12 oz. Bottle*
This is a beautiful looking brew. Honey orange with some hop haze. Smells wonderful dense pine with slight citrus, floral notes and malt sweetness in the background. Taste follows the aroma. Earthy, citrus rind bitterness, wheat bread sweetness comes from behind. Nice dry bitter finish. The 9.4 abv cannot be found but just a subtle warmth just slightly after the swallow. I like this more than I thought I would. I recomend this brew for those who like well balanced DIPAs.
