Poured from a bottle into my nifty Founders snifter

Pouring into my glass the beer was a lovly orange gold color with about 2 fingers of foamy goodness. The head disappeared fairly quick.

Smell, grapefruit. It smells good...damn good.

Taste is where some may try to kill me. I think it's about as damn close to a FFF alpha king as I have ever tasted. This beer is top notch. I can't grade it as high as Alpha King (perfection in my book), but this is fantastic. The hops shine in here. I can taste the grapefruit, maybe some biscuit tones, a little earthiness. Wonderful.

Overall I think this is a star. I really like it. At $12.99 for a 12 pack is another point for the beer. Lets face it, most people love craft beer on this site. But how many can afford to pay $10 for a six all the time. It like having a hot chick that knows how to budget a check book. You'll still want to fiddle around with the high priced flavors of the week, but this one will stay in the stable. Highly recommended.
