look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance a little cloudy goldy, i was hoping for a slightly darker brew for the ABV. the only reason i gave it a 4.5

Smell definitely hopy, grape-fruity, citrus y, a hint of boozyness

Taste just your classic double IPA, the difference between this and others is you can taste the quality, I taste the hops right off the bat. goes down smooth. I best describe it by saying it taste like grapefruit. yummy.. would never guess this has a high ABV..

Mouthfeel smooth, a little bubbly,

Overall an amazing brew, will drink again, will reccomend, in fact Im getting up to grab a cold one now.

4.48/5  rDev +6.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Spiegelau tulip. Bottled on March 20, 2012 printed on label.

Appearance: Pours a clear light gold with orange highlights and a 1 finger foamy snow white head. Excellent head retention and lacing.

Smell: Sweet citrus, pine, pineapple, candied fruits and sweet malt. Aroma reminds me a lot of Lagunitas Lucky 13.

Taste: Grapefruit and pine dominate throughout with a bit of sweet and lightly toasted malt in the background. Aftertaste is quite bitter and long-lasting.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with just the right amount of prickly carbonation. The hop oils really coat the mouth.

Drinkability: Excellent drinkability. This one goes down very easily for a beer with 9.4% ABV. I could see myself drinking multiples before the alcohol told me to stop.

Overall: Excellent beer overall. While the bottle I had was over 4 months old, the hops really hadn't faded like I feared they would have. I'd love to try it fresh. I would highly recommend trying this one. I really wish I had more than just the one bottle. Too bad Founders doesn't distribute down here in southwest Florida.

4.38/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: It has a nice cloudy golden orange/yellow color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of citrus, grapefruit and pine with some sweet bready and caramelly malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some nice citrus and grapefruit from the hops, a good piney resin and some sweet caramelly malts. I'm loving the bitterness in this one!

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas. IPA#2 for IPA Day and another great one.
