12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in an IPA glass

This beer pours a golden hue with a slight haze. It is topped with several inches of off white head that leaves spotty lacing.

The smell is citrus and earthy with some melon. I also get some biscuit from the malt. Light pine rounds it out.

The taste is dank and earthy. I get grapefruit and pine in the finish with a lingering bitterness.

Medium mouthfeel with a smooth mouthfeel with a little bit of a bite.

This is more of a west coast IPA. It is well made. I really wish Founders had a strong IPA game. Then they would be the only brewery that I would ever need to buy from. Fat Heads needs to merge with Founders and create the best brewery in the Universe.

Very nice, crisp new IPA tried on tap at Founders. Pours a great clear golden color with minimal head and very scant, spotty lingering lacing. Smells of nice sweet fruity hops along with a little piney hops and malt. Tastes of loads of fruit - grapefruit, pineapple, orange, lemon, papaya - as well as more faint piney hops, caramel, smooth vanilla, honey and a perfectly-balanced malt backbone. Very nice and smooth, mild mouthfeel with great carbonation. As billed, this beer was extremely juicy and fresh, and really was a great balance between slightly bitter and not overly-sweet. Would definitely buy it bottled if it were ever available in stores. Nicely done!
