12 oz. bottle given to me by a friend. Founders is not available in TN.
A respectable pour produces one finger of bubbly head that continues to linger. The beer is slightly hazy; gold at the bottom turning darker as you progress upwards toward the suds. Looks promising. The nose is fruity, sweet honey, and fresh cut flowers. Taste is boozy, hoppy, and creamy. The hop flavor itself is more on the earthy, grassy side with hints of corn husk and bitter orange peel. The aftertaste lingers with fresh hop bitterness. A good strong IPA flavor. The feel on the tongue is creamy and chewy, slightly heavy and somewhat thick which accents the booziness of this IPA. Definitely a sipping beer.
Overall an excellent IPA that stands out far and above the hoardes of other IPA's out there. It reminds me of the other IPA's that I tend to prefer and is one that I would drink often if it was readily available in TN. One day hopefully.
