12oz bottle that I poured in order to get a 2inch head.

Look is copper orange, good retention and nice lacing.

Smells grapefruit, mango and peach. Quite a bit of citrus on the nose.

Taste, hints of tangerine and orange hidden in the grapefruit strong flavor.

Feel, light carbonation, fairly quaffable. I only have one for the evening so I will instead sip on it for a bit.

Overall: I was excited before even buying it, I mean it's Founders. And this lives up to the hype - at least that of the brewery.

Picked up a 15 pak of this high test ipa. Popping the top I get a nice waft of passion fruit hops with a hint of caramel and licorice. Pours to a described burnt orange with a highly structural dark tan head. The taste is a nice bite up front with a more passion fruit taste with some grapefruit. Middle is malty caramel backbone with good carbonation. Nice moderately bitter finish. Sneaky ABV. Another keeper from Founders.

Pour is a dark orange-amber with a thick cap of white foam.

Smells of oranges and citrus rind, honey, biscuits.

Taste is pine resin up front, with notes of honey, orange, faint pepper and onions, bitey bitterness is a quick flash before yielding to a heap of caramelly sweet malt.

Medium-light body with strong carbonation.

Interesting. Not my favorite Founders IPA due to the faint oniony tones and heavy malt.

Pours out dark amber in color. Head is off-white and fairly dense and lasting. Leaves a lot of sticky lacing all over the glass.

The nose is tropical and somewhat malty. Picking up pineapple and orange with a bit of earthiness. Not very complex but very aromatic.

Pretty well balanced. Piney hops up front with some decent malt sweetness to take it down a notch. Still getting that pineapple with some bitter orange rind.

Light to medium body in feel with medium carbonation. Not bad.

Delicious easy-to-drink IPA. Nice golden amber color, a little bit of head with some lingering lacing. Smells of fruity hops, malt, a little caramel. Tastes of citrus hops - papaya, mango, orange, lemon. Also has some notes of malt, caramel, herbal hops. Finishes clean, very little bitterness, thin mouthfeel with nice carbonation. I would definitely enjoy more than one of these on a hot day.

5/13/18: $1.97 plus tax from Beer on the Wall in Park Ridge. Canned 11/16/17, purchased 4/6/18. Honey colored pour, thin white lacing, 12 ounce can poured into chalice. Very sweet aroma, honey, citrus, mango and hops. Sweet taste, consistent with aroma, citrus, balanced against mello/light hops. Very thin texture, carbonation holds, slightly bitter hops, nice. Overall very good beer.
