look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - nice orange amber rich color, nothing surprising or original, but something very hearty about a glass full

Smell - again, unoriginal for an IPA, but very nice scent, mild explosions of citrus and pine

Taste - the deal breaker. Delicious. Alcohol is not overpowering, flavor is just beautiful. Everything works so well together, provides a smooth taste and great drinkability. For an IPA, unusually brings me to a summer daydream, possibly due to the refreshing factor - which is high

Mouthfeel - again, top notch. Smooth, drinkable, low carbonation. All of the traits of an IPA. Get one.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 12 oz bottle into a wine goblet. Bottled 11/22/11. Two finger head and a rich clear orange tint. A bit rocky head. Piney and citrusy scent. My favorite smell. Slightly bitter but sweet too. Grapefruit juicy fruit nice apricot taste. Medium bodied and holds it own with carbonation. Overall a wonderful IPA at the caliber of a West Coast IPa. I will seek out again. Another great Founders product.
