4.15/5 rDev -1.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A - Pours a beautiful translucent orange, with minimum head, quickly fading.
S - Grapefruit peel and bright hops. A little floral or honey note.
T - Immediate grapefruit peel and sweet pulp, followed quickly by sweet fruity and slightly dank hops. A dry hop finish, mostly orange peel. Some biscuit and pale malts. Plenty of pine resin.
M - Medium carbonation and alcohol sting, very smooth; oil coats the back of the throat. A little alcohol warmth on the finish. Long sticky finish.
O - This is a very tasty DIPA, certainly worthy of your consideration (and seasonal enjoyment). That said, I think it's a noticeable step below the best, and doesn't really bring anything you can't get elsewhere.

A – Poured into the snifter. Pale bright yellow in color, translucent with some orange hues as well. Head is thin but white in color and sticks around leaving nice lacing.
S – Woah tropical citrus! Lemon, lime, orange, mango, pineapple. Lots going on here, but geared heavily towards a big citrus bomb.
T – Hops take the stage, obviously. The malt background is not overtly sweet, it is quite balanced. Notes of lemon and mango, a light caramel nuttiness develops as this one warms. Some pine and earthy notes come through on the tail end of things.
M – Very smooth on this one, carbonation errs on the high side of things, though it does serve to provide a nice crispness to the beer. A stickiness develops and is true to the style. Finishes dry and bitter.
O – This is a very nice double IPA, it is not as audacious as Hoptimum, it has a great balance to it, and its booziness is nicely hidden. This is quite drinkable, each sip rounds out with a nicely astringent note that leaves you coming back for more. Overall, this is a great beer.
This beer is definitely a solid DIPA. Very tasty and hoppy as you could expect from Founder's Brewing.
