One of my favorite beers from Founders. The wet hops are oily, juicy, citrusy, piney, delicious.

This is last year's batch and it has held up very well over these past three months. The wet hops are still very noticeable although a bit more subdued than the first bottle. I will pretty much be ISO this one every October. Superb

Surprise, surprise. Another great IPA from Michigan. California are you paying attention? This one caught me by surprise with how great it was. My first wet hopped IPA. Poured from a bottle into a stamddard pint glass. Generous head that quickly fades but leaves nice lacing on the glass. Nose is just a bit piney compared to other IPA's I've had. Maybe it's th wet hopped style. Very clear compared to other IPA's as well. Taste is fantastic. It's delicious. This is so good it's almost sessionable. Wow! I think this is better than Founders Centenntial IPA. I love this beer!
