A- pours a cloudy-hazy orange-golden color with a frothy white head that reduces to skim the top with some nice lace.

S- intense piney and citrus hop, grapefruit juice, flowers, a bit if fresh cut grass, sweet biscuity malt.

T- piney hops are sharp and oily, floral notes, sweet bready malt, finishes very bitter. It actually hides the booze quite well, with a nice clean minty finish.

M- heavy body, a bit syrupy, low carbonation, velvety and sticky finish, not too booz with a dry finish.

O- this one packs the bitter punch that you would expect of this style, not my favorite style but a solid example and one that hop heads will enjoy.

The color and malt profile were both much lighter than expected. I love IPAs but am not crazy about this lighter, more accessible version of an imperial IPA. On the other hand, those seeking an easy-drinking IPA with high alcohol and little caramel or other malt flavors would likely be pleased with this one from Founders.
