Thanks for dob for this Michigan treat!
A-2 inch head on clear amber/copper body, streaming carbo bubble from bottle of Sam Adams imperial pilsner glass. Very nice looking!
S-Citrus/grapefruit and a nice pine aroma.
T-Pine and cirus hope flavor on a fairly seet malt base. As warm, more floral and caramel come through.
M-Nice mouth feel, slightly oily and full in mouth
D-I'm a fan. Could drink quite a few. Not quite a top flight IPA but one I would seek out again.

Love Founders's beers and decided to give this one a try. Here goes:
A: Not good or bad; just OK in my book. Pours a clear orange with a very, very small head. The carbonation is somewhat lacking, but the lacing is actually very good.
S: Not good. I had to stick my nose deep down into this in order to get any smell. Normally, the hops in IPA's are robust and easily detectable by the nose. Not so in this case. Can smell a hint of grapefruit and orange but nothing else.
T: Despite the nose being lackluster, the taste was excellent. Very well balanced. Taste is initially one of grapefruit, lemon and orange followed by nice amber and caramel malts. Very balanced for an IPA. I figure the malt backbone indicates why the ABV is high.
M: Great. Many IPA's are loose and watery as they focus only on hops. This beer is very thick for an IPA and I love it! Limited carbonation but the thickness more than makes up for this.
O: Was skeptical from the appearance and smell, but the taste and mouthfeel were exquisite.
