3.88/5 rDev -6.3%
poured into deschutes snifter
appearance: golden brown hue, moderate opacity, thin white head
aroma: hints of pine and citrus, typical ipa nose
palate: mild carbonation, the ibus stick out tho and sting the tongue, you also notice the 7.2%
taste: nice hoppy flavors, fairly bitter kick to it, and im getting some sweet candy aftertaste thats a nice touch
overall: so im a little bummed i forgot to check the bottled on date, as this one was bottled on 10/14/11. not too old, but not as fresh as i would have liked. maybe it affected my scoring, but i still think this is a very nice ipa overall. founders really does nothing bad

4/5 rDev -3.4%
From notes on 12/28/2011
4/5 Pours out a nice dark orange in color with a finger, white head with OK retention.
4/5 Smell is a nice citrus - grapefruit, mango, pineapple, etc. with a little pine. The sweet malts smell of caremal and really balance things out.
4/5 Taste is really nice with everything in the nose as mentioned but the pine is a little stronger as the beer is swallowed. The citrus and malt bill really come through here.
4/5 Mouthfeel is medium and really nice for the style. Carbonation is perfect.

Get ready to bask in the glory of the frothy head's floral bouquet. Relish the citrus accents from the abundance of dry hopping. This one's sweet, yet balanced. Malty undertones shake hands with the hop character for a finish that never turns too bitter.

Cloudy amber in appearance. Very sour smell, not very inviting. There are some hints of hops in the nose. Lacks bitterness and has a very acidic taste. The mouthfeel is does not fall short of the taste. There is a slight sweetness at the end of the swallow. It does leave the tongue ok, but we have had better. Overall this is an average IPA and with a little work it could be good. Falls short of our expectations.
