4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange-red with a dense head. Aroma of pine, grass and orange. The flavour is very refreshing, starting a bit sweet - orange-like - but then settling at a quite dry level with a very dry finish. Medium-bodied, soft carbonation and oily texture.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an amber orange haze, somewhat lively. Medium head breaks down to a thin head, with lacing. Has a citrus-hoppy aroma, with some subtle pine. Bitter and biting taste. A bolder IPA, not the creamier variety. Sweet on the front and bitter on the back, hits close together, decent balance. Bitter aftertaste. A good IPA, but not a special one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a tap at Founders. Clear, copper colored with nice lacing. Orange-citrus hops aroma with a very mild note of malt. Lively carbonation refreshing, with a lasting dry-hop bitterness. Overall itís a good IPA. I enjoy the orange-citrus aromas, but I wish it was a little more balanced.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours gold with a bit of lacing on the glass. Nose is orange and floral hops, some caramel and toffee malt backbone. Flavor slightly fruity, orange hops, light caramel and toffee malt backbone whose sweetness is cut with nice piney bitter finish. Very solid, very drinkable, though I think the over 7% abv could catch up fast.

NOT IMPRESSED!! All the hype and talk about this beer and I was disappointed.Not that itís a horrible beer but not worthy of the ratings Iíve seen.Iím a HUGE IPA fan and this beer lacked all I love in an IPA.Not very hoppy and almost had a strange soapy bitterness at the end.The Double Trouble by Founders was solid but this beer...not for me.You could have told me this was Budís new IPA or MILLERíS and Iíd have believed you.Sorry Founders this one is a miss for me.
