Bottled served in a weizen glass. Pours a hazy golden with 1.5 finger khaki head with moderate retention and thin lacing.

Moderately pungent aroma of grapefruit and apricots. Tastes starts sweet caramel on the front and immediately you are hit with a wade of citrus hops, tangerine, mango, grapefruit, and nice malty backbone for balance and a touch of alcohol and warming effect and fairly bitter finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation with chewy mouthfeel.

Excellent well crafted DIPA, ages well, can drink this any day of the week.

4.07/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a murky amber with a half finger head that all but goes away after a few minutes.

Smell: Sweet toffee and butter. This beer smells like Werther's candy.

Taste: Hop bitterness upfront leads to a sweet middle. The bitterness returns at the end, but not overwhelmingly, and fades out. Although the flavor doesn't drive me crazy, this beer is ridiculously easy to drink. The alcohol is hidden so well, which doesn't surprise me, coming from Founders.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation is on the lighter side, but it's very smooth on the palate.

Overall: This is definitely a solid beer. It has a nice bitter/sweetness balance, combined with such an easy drinkability for the abv. Wouldn't expect anything less from Founders.
