A- Dark for an IPA, a red color that seems to be a recurring theme in founders beer, nice head that dissipates into nice lacing, interesting looking IPA.
S- Faint smell of roasted malt, and piny hops, it does not seem to have much of an aroma comparing this to similar high quality breweries ipa's. This may not be fresh though because I am not used to such a weak smelling ipa, especially one with such good reviews.
T- A subdued IPA, hops are there but this is too balanced for me, maybe this has been sitting for a while, but I am not impressed, too malty, a delicious beer nonetheless. If it were not for the style I would rate this higher, as they do a great job of hiding the high alcohol content and I enjoy the flavor, it just isn't really hoppy and I guess thats what I expect from a craft brewer.
F- Very full mouthfeel, almost too heavy for this style, a beer that you almost chew, this beer does not fit the IPA moniker, and I don't mean that as a compliment.
D- After 1 I am starting to feel full, very in line with the other founders beers, this is part of a meal, not an accompaniment, good beer but having more than 2 would be a chore.
Overall I can't say I was dissapointed because it was a very tasty beer, but no hop kick like I'm used to

In a can-shaped glass.
A- Amber body, some cloudiness and no carbonation visible. Foamy light head that plateaus and leaves lots of lace.
S- Orange citrus and sweet caramel plus subtle pineyness.
T- Mellow citrus and a good dose of caramel. Pineyness is there too. The nose and tongue are very consistent. But good.
M- This beer is bitter, but not overwhelming. Average carbonation. Medium-bodied and with a hint of booziness.
Overall, a top-notch IPA and one that can stand above the rest of the crowd.

A very nice IPA. The appearance was light orange with a head that lasted a while then left trails down the glass. The smell was really nice with a lot of floral and herb components. The taste was full of hops that left a very nice even taste that ended in an enjoyable crisp finish. The mouthfeel was also nice. For an IPA at seven percent, it was delightfully medium bodied with a refreshing amount of fizz. Would definitely recommend.
