Ambery/burnt orange in color, says my girlfriend.
Poured into Founder's Pint glass, with nearly 1 and 1/2 fingers off-white, more light tan, head. Lacing is nice on this one. Slowly works its way down as you do but hovers a good two to three fingers above the liquid at all times.
Right away, though, you know this beer rocks, as floral, citrus, and especially lemon hits your nose.
Sip starts bitter (pears, some more lemon zest) but breaks fast into a warm, welcomed malt (caramel) backbone -- Goddamnit! It's that good. Mildly alcoholy, faint esters, super clean finish that leaves that perfect bitter aftertaste that draws you back for each sip.
Mouthfeel is OK, suitable for this type of brew.
Overall, another outstanding ale from Founders.
It's a perfect 65 IBU, with an outstanding balance.
Nicely done. Also, at 7.2 ABV, be careful, because these go down fast!

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.
