A: Very murky coppery orange. Unfiltered with a decent amount of head with decent lacing that sticks nicely.

S: A piney citrus hop blend. Nice strong bold armonas, no need to stick your nose in this one!

T: Big citrus and piney hops flavor hits you right away and ends with a nice long lasting betterness.

M: Medium bodied with a good bitter bite.

O: Great beer, so happy founders is always available to me. Great IPA that is in my opinion a must try for and IPA fan.

12oz bottle (bottled 7/18/2011) poured into a tulip. Amber color, thick white foamy head that leaves behind sticky lacing.

Aroma is citrusy piney hops - maybe a little muted in this 4-month-old IPA.

Taste is relatively malt-forward: sweet fruit, caramel/crystal malt, & bitter hops with a sharp crisp finish.

Overall this is a well-crafted IPA but a little on the maltier side. This can be partially attributed to this beer's age, but even fresh I think its balance tilts toward malt vs. hops.
