12 oz bottle with no freshness date poured into a pint glass
Appearance: Hazy burnt orange copper hue with chunky head. Great lacing that sticks to the glass til the very last drop.
Smell: Hoppy and floral with sweet malts settling in. Little bit of citrus, mostly grapefruit.
Taste: Sweet malty notes on the tip of the tongue with citrus-like hops commanding most of the attention. Grapefruit and lemon notes are very prominent with this one. Nice balance for an IPA since the malts are both detectable, and enjoyable.
Mouthfeel: A medium bodied brew. Very smooth. Moderate carbonation.
Drinkability: Very easy to drink despite being 7.2% ABV. Goes down very quickly.
Ending notes: Would definitely get again. Yet another good beer from a solid brewery. Well done, Founders.

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.
