a great big ipa, just how we like em. pours a dead sexy radiant honey color with a puffy white head, lasting, and maybe two inches tall. its got just the slightest haze to it, with mellow rising bubbles backlit by a setting Adirondack sun. ahhh. the nose is real hoppy, oily and dank, definitely in the west coast mold. some citrus notes, but also some more traditional bittering stuff, and some high alpha varietals too. medium pale and crystal malt middle, enough body and back bone, but gentle enough to lets the hops do the talking, or should I say screaming. this is an aggressive brew, bold and bitter, crisply refreshing for its size, but still sticky in the mouth, sappy, huge. alcohol is obvious but not unpleasant, just a reminder of the power of this beer, and that I probably shouldn't have more than a pint. great carbonation, this drinks pretty easy for what it is. founders has gotten the hops dialed lately, and this beer is a real testament to that, just a real well done example of the style.

A - Pours a golden pale color with a small white head. Nice head and lacing.
S - Green dank hops, grapefruit peel, pine sap, sweet ripened apricots, rich malts, almost get an eggy mineral aroma.
T - Bittering hops surround a sweet fruity center, ruby red grapefruit, lemon, and stone fruit. Then heavy amounts of pine bleed in with a bitter green bite. The pale malts have a honey sweetness and do their best to balance the bitter green hops. Finishes dry with a lemon herbal bitterness.
M - Medium weight but semi viscous at times. Low and slow carbonation. Dry finish.
Here is a dank, bitter, circle of hop flavor, kind of DIPA. This has the flavor and bitterness to match. Pale malts hold up so it's not a thin bitter mess like some IPA's I've had. This leans the toward green pine and grapefruit hops. Alcohol comes out a bit but works with the finish. This is the best Founders I've had to date.

From my tasting notes: It poured a deep gold with a solid white head that had good retention and lacing. The aroma was full of tropical fruits, floral hops and citrusy grapefruit notes. The initial taste was a huge grapefruit rind bitterness that deftly slid into a lingering floral hop bitterness and dry finish. The bready malt backbone helped hide alcohol that was undetectable. As the beer warmed the flavors became more intense and well balanced taking you through it’s robust hop flavor profile with every sip. A troublingly tasty and tippable brew despite it’s high ABV and bold hop flavors.
