Pours a golden amber color with a light head.

Aroma of citrus, pine and pineapple.

Grapefruit and citrus bitter hop flavor upfront with malty undertones. Nice dry bitter finish.

Medium body and carbonation.

Overall a great IPA from Founders, well balanced and tasty.

Amber color with one finger of head. No lacing on the glass. Nose is dominated by grapefruit and pine hop aromas, with a hint of pineapple. As expected, the flavor is very hop forward with citrusy and piney hops. Full bodied for an IPA. This is ok, but I've had better IPAs. I doubt I'd get this again.

Pours dark orange with a nice white lace. The smell is the best part of the beer. It has a nice fresh hopped up smell and it gives you high expectations. The taste is just ok. I really want to like this cause I'm a huge Founders fan, but ultimately I need to be honest with myself and admit that this is a mid level IPA. There are many out there that are a bit smoother and have a nicer hoppy presence. This offering tend to leave a bitter aftertaste that keeps building. I've tried this on many different occasions and its always the same ending. Not a bad beer by any mean, but if I'm reaching for an IPA, I'm looking else where in this case.
