A- Vigorous pour of hazy pale copper gives way to a 1 finger white head. Sticky lacing and decent retention. Free flowing carbonation bubbles. My only complaint is that it is pale in comparison to most DIPAs.

S- Nice hop profile on the nose of citrus (ruby grapefruit), some pine and floral notes as well. Mango and peaches. Candy coated pale malt base.

T- Huge citrus leads the way. Rush of it comes at you with gusto. Faint touch of a spicy, pale malt backbone calms the hops just for a brief moment before the hop bitterness takes hold of the finish. Outstanding start, but the lack of malt leaves allows the finish to be a little harsh.

M- Full body. Wet over the palate before finishing dry. Warmth of the alcohol sets in nicely. Wonderful carbonation

O- Another well done brew by a fantastic brewery. Tons of hops as the pale malt takes a backseat causing this beer to taste more like an IPA than a DIPA imo. Nitpicking though...solid brew that i would drink again.

A - Cloudy orange with a one finger white head.

S - Grapefruit and orange with big dank hops.

T - Big grapefruit with a nice sweetness from the malts. Hops are present and balance the sweetness with nice bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. A very smooth drinking beer.

O - Another outstanding beer from Founder's. Very smooth and easy to drink. If you're a DIPA you will love this.
