2-liter growler I picked up on Sunday and consumed within a couple of hours. Poured into a matching Tired Hands oversized wine glass the brew appears a clouded golden color with a frothy white topping. Some spotty strings of lace stick to the glass and the brew overall shows decent retaining powers.
The brew smells quite nice with citrus zest, pith, rind and an herbal to grassy hop component. It has a really nice fruity to floral feel with a trace amount of alcohol poking through as it warms up. The integration of hops and the fruit zest works nicely together.
The flavor is dry with a tropical fruit and citrus/rindy punch. A bit herbal and grassy with a faint grainy backdrop thrown in as well. The alcohol really only shows itself as it warms up. Overall the flavors blend together nicely and at no point really was I able to discern the hop character from the zest additions.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. Overall a nice offering that is easy to drink. So easy to drink that I ended up finishing off the full 2-liters myself without issue. Admittedly, the purist side of me wanted to hate on this beer for using the zest of different citrus aspects as a crutch for the hop character. However, I liked this brew quite a bit despite the citrus augmentation.

Founders Doom glass
A: Completely cloudy bright yellow orange color. Thin layer of bright white head of bubbles. Carb isn't that great only two days later.
S: Really juicy hop aromas: tropical fruit, passion fruit, mango, pineapple, etc.
T: Not as bitter as I was expecting. Slight bitterness up front then it's all those dripping tropical fruits coming in later. Really thin malt bill. Maybe some wheat in here for the body and creamy notes? Finish is dry, lingering sweetness.
M: Medium bodied. Very sweet.
