This is one of those double ipa's that is so drinkable it's scary, would love to try the barrel aged version of it. The aroma and taste on this one match up perfectly.only picked up a single, now wishing I had just bought the 4-pack. Founders has never really disappointed me and they still haven't.

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.
