12oz, Summer '13
Founders Doom glass

A: Slight chill haze. A lighter colored orange. Thin layer of bright white that faded quickly. Carbonation is fine.

S: Definitely smelling that Citra blast. Big fruity notes: orange and tangerine. Mango. Some sweet malts behind it. Doesn't smell overly bitter.

T: Bitterness right up front on the tip of the tongue. That grows on you during the sip and elongates. Again, delicious Citra hop fruitiness. Citrus, tropical fruit, juicy fruit bubble gum, etc. There is a little bit of sweet malt but or the most part this is a hop bomb. Finish is dry and bitter.

M: This is more medium bodied than their described "full".

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle poured into wine glass.

Appearance-pours a very light amber, with a small 1 finger white head. Great lacing. 3.75

Aroma-very citrusy, lots of grapefruit, pineapple, and mango. Some dank pine also seeping through. Truly a great smelling IPA. 4.25

Taste-lots of bitterness, grapefruit with its peel, overripe pineapple. Malts seem to be a little over whelmed with the hops. This beer is about the bitter punch you get on the front of the tongue, after that fades it has a tough time coming up with more flavor. 4.5

Feel-medium body, ABV is low and non existent, this whole reeks havoc on your palate, mucho bitter. 4

Overall-this has all of the flavors of a DIPA and is more bitter than most I've had recently. It packs a hell of a punch for $11 bucks a sixer and under 7 ABV. I am really digging this one, not sure if its a year round or a one off, but I need to get my hands on more. 4.5

Poured into a nonic a dull brass color with a tightly formed lacey half finger white head atop.Aromas seem to be quite sweet and sugary with a big splash of citrusy hops,almost DIPAish in nature to me.Flavors are a citrusy bomb with big sugary sweetness along with caramel,the hops are big and so is the sweetness.Wow this is as close to tasting like a DIPA at 6.5% as you can get in my opinion with it's sweetness and hops mixture.

1 of the best IPA's i've ever had. not too hopped. great smell, flavor. perfect pine, citrus character. gotta try on draft again to compare. great summer beer. bit pricey, but i'm cheap. comparable to headhunter and nano's citramax. aftertaste is a bit weak. tried hard to think of a flaw.
