Enjoyed on tap at a Founders tap takeover at Bier Station in Kansas City. Served in a small bulbous tulip-style glass.

Appearance - Body is a bright and clear golden color with stark white head that is maybe a finger worth. Eventually settles to a rim of lacing around the edge and speckled lace on top of the body.

Smell - Wonderfully piney with undertones of fruit--grapefruit and other stark citrus notes. Very little else going on to my nose, but it doesn't matter because the aroma is so intoxicating.

Taste - Fresh and pungent with pine resin and more grapefruit goodness as well as some pineapple and a bit more sweetness peeking through as it warms. Alcoholic heat is detectible but well hidden. Notes of bitterness balance the fruitiness.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Lingering and faint bitterness.

Overall, a delicious DIPA that I feel doesn't get as much love as everyone's favorites, but it 's well worth a mention. I would gladly drink this again and again.
