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

A: beautiful gold under a fat white head; settles into a bubbly film with ample lace

S: crisp hops and bright yeast; notes of citrus and wood

T: dry and crisp grapefruit and pine; subdued sweetness

M: full, creamy, nice dry/sweet balance

O: I'd forgotten how good an Imperial IPA this was - been quaffing down Palate Wreckers, 471's, 90 Minute IPAs, Shipyard's XXXX, and the like for some time now without returrning to an old favorite. As is true with most? all? Founders brews, this is a top-notch beer.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Nose: Briefly yeasty and bready, but quickly overpowered by sweet, crisp citric hops. Lightly caramelly malt mingles with blueberry and blackberry esters that are mild, but present. Very crisp and fresh.

Appearance: Hazy blonde-gold with no head, just a ring of bubbles around the edge.

Taste: Very bitter and deep. Dank and woody - slight grapefruit dryness, but the taste is largely chlorophyllic and dark green. Alcohol bite and some minor berry characteristics provide some balance and the mild sugaryness of the malts is briefly, vaguely caramelly. Mildly astringent and semi-dry.

Overall: A heavy-handed dose of hops in this. Big and bitter, but some balance would have been nice - though maybe that's just my mood.
