I am not an IPA fan in the least but drinking this and comparing it to what I believe the style to be - it's an excellent beer. Grapefruit is the word of the day on this for me. You can smell in, sitting there on the table in a crowded bar/restaurant. Very overpowering which isn't to say that's bad.

I enjoyed the beer rather much but wouldn't ever make it a habit and it didn't make me want to try other brewers' IPA's (singles or doubles).

Having tried more than a few different styles of beers and not considering myself to be locked into any one style when I go out or think about a beer enough to write a review - I'd say this is a good beer, worthy of trying at the least.

Appearance: poured a hazy golden orange with a short whitish head that fades quickly, leaving some lacing on the glass.

Smell: beautiful citrus fruit, with tangerine in the forefront. Also earthy notes with pine pushing through. Great smelling beer.

Taste: hoppy with tastes of pine and resin but well balanced with citrus from the aroma. Caramel comes through from the malt in a great tasting DIPA.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied with mild carbonation, leading to a smooth, crisp finish. Alcohol is well masked and this isn't too bitter for a DIPA.

Overall: this is another fabulous beer from Founders. Maybe a bit pricey, but worth trying if you can get it. Hops are showcased far more than the malt, which is how I prefer my DIPAs.
