3.58/5  rDev -13.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

a hazy amber pour with 2 fingers head which disappeared within about a second. great lacing. smells were pretty basic consisting of pine and grapefruit with a hint of sweetness (honey).

bitter taste of dirt at first followed up by all pine takeover. really can't taste anything other than hops!

slightly creamy and fizzy, medium body. overall, this was a good ipa from Founders, typically i think their ipa's taste like dirt and burtn rubber.. just my experience so far with them. this one actually tasted GOOD. had a slight soapy after taste to it which was slightly off putting in the end, i think it may have been better if they just balanced it out and made it a hint sweeter.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Nice appearance and mouthfeel, but the taste left me unimpressed.
If you're a hop-head, you'll like this one. If you like balance or complexity, not so much. (I like balance, so while I can appreciate the resinous, tangy hops, it was too one-dementional for my palate.)
