Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. Purchased in Warwick, RI.
A- Pours a hazy, dull honey-mustard colored body with a 2 finger white head that reduces to some frothy foam and leaves some spotty lacing.
S- Smells like it has a heavy malt backbone - sweet caramel and bread. The hops are more on the piney, resinous, floral side with some citrus hiding in there.
T- Pretty much matches the nose.. big pine and resin notes sitting on a heavy malt backbone. Some soapy notes in there. Aftertaste is hugely bitter and somewhat off balance. Some booze.
M- Medium body, medium high carbonation.
This is a mini version of Founder's Devil dancer, which I wasn't a huge fan of. Pretty drinkable but the hops were a little off balance in my opinion. I could put down two before becoming sick of it.

Picked up a single based on wanting something decent to end a day of working outside. Poured out a light amber color with a good head that was very promising. Smell was not particularly overpowering, but hits the taste buds pretty fast with great hops flavor, and flavor lingers for awhile. In a way that makes you want to take another sip. And another.
Very decent lacing, actually a little surprising to see the high alcohol content, an anti-session beer that you could easily drink more than one of as if it were a session beer. All in all I would say it is just about the perfect double IPA, might have to pick up another one tomorrow while they are still available.

This is one of those double ipa's that is so drinkable it's scary, would love to try the barrel aged version of it. The aroma and taste on this one match up perfectly.only picked up a single, now wishing I had just bought the 4-pack. Founders has never really disappointed me and they still haven't.

I am not an IPA fan in the least but drinking this and comparing it to what I believe the style to be - it's an excellent beer. Grapefruit is the word of the day on this for me. You can smell in, sitting there on the table in a crowded bar/restaurant. Very overpowering which isn't to say that's bad.
I enjoyed the beer rather much but wouldn't ever make it a habit and it didn't make me want to try other brewers' IPA's (singles or doubles).
Having tried more than a few different styles of beers and not considering myself to be locked into any one style when I go out or think about a beer enough to write a review - I'd say this is a good beer, worthy of trying at the least.
