Notes: DIPA brewed with seven hop varieties and a huge malt backbone. Resinous hop character with a sticky sweet finish.

Nice imperial IPA sampled on tap at Founders. Could have been more bright and hoppy but still was easy to drink and enjoy. Pours a slightly darker golden color with a little cap of white head and spotty lingering lacing. Smells of some muddled fruity hops, malt, vanilla, caramel and maybe a touch of bread. Taste follows the nose - the flavors opened up more as the beer warmed. Grapefruit, orange, lemon, pineapple. Hops were still a little muddled and not bright, and there was a little too much sweet malt that overshadowed any bitter bite from the hops. Higher ABV was well hidden, though. Smooth, mild, very slightly sticky mouthfeel and good carbonation. Tasty and easy to drink. Just wish it were more focused and balanced.
