Good IPA but not the citrusy hop forward brew I was expecting. Pours a hazy amber color with a white foamy head. Good bands of lacing on the glass and good head retention. Aroma is mostly biscuity and caramel malt and some piney hops. I didn't get any tropical fruit/passion fruit out of this beer. Taste is mostly the same, malt forward with dry biscuity malt up front and sweeter richer caramel malt in the finish. The bitterness takes a back seat to the malt, but the hops appear more to be piney, resinous hops rather than citrus/tropical. Mouthfeel is rich with the sweet caramel malt dominant over the piney hops. Not a hop bomb but a solid good-tasting IPA.

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.
