Poured from a 12oz bottle into a duvel tulip

A- pours a slightly orange golden, very clean and crisp with a half a finger of white head that settles into a film, nice lacing.

S- pinneaply citrus, pine, alcohol, a hint of malt, a very nice hop aroma.

T- similar to the nose, bitter pine hops with a slight alcohol bite, pineapple , not overly sweet, and very well balanced. Resinous hop flavor. The alcohol is well hidden on the hops.

M- medium body, with a nice medium carbonation that Works beautifully here, I'd say the body is dry overall and very well rounded, for all that bitter hop flavor it doesn't heavily coat your mouth with hop resins leaving a long bitter after taste. Very very drinkable.

O- an awesome dipa, one of my top for the style, inwishbi could drink this beer all the time, a great brew .

Had this on tap at the Founders brewery. Has all the typical characteristics of the style.. orange-ish color, grapefruit-ish hoppy aroma and flavor, strong alcohol backbone. Was balanced appropriately as some beers of the style can be too overwhelming in terms of bitterness or strength. Really enjoyed this one and picked up a few to come back to later.
