Not a bad IPA. Wasn’t as hoppy as some others that I’ve had. A nice gold/orange pour with a big white head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Flavor is similar with maybe pine added in. Not bad.

Amber pour, foamy white head.
This IPA has a big hop aroma; spruce, citrus, grass. Flavor is fresh piney hops, with a sticky bitter finish.

Pours a hazy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, with some caramel malt. Very well-balanced flavor. Smooth, medium body. A true benchmark brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle aged over one year. I’m not a big IPA drinker but this one is nice. Hazy orange nearly brown color. Light carbonation leaves a thin layer of white head with some lacing in my shaker glass. Nose of pineapple, resin and malt. Wow..! Great flavor of malt sweetness, citrus hops that is balanced perfectly. A little bit of resin the finish and a very light bitterness, even light as it warms. Medium / light body with a lot of flavor in there. Light grapefruit shows when warm. Founders shows me again they are top notch. A very nice brew.

perfect IPA!, well, almost. This is a how an IPA should be like, big and bold, bites you in the ass and has that long hop savouring taste. Superb

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle, unfiltered, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo. Pours an amber body with a very slight haze. Firm, near-white head slowly fading leaving spotty lacing behind. Spiced aroma of partially dried fruits. Well blended flavour containing citrus peels, pine needles and malty sweetness. Dry bittersweet tail. Mouthfilling and enjoyable (at home in Tromsø, 10.05.2011).

Tap. Nice pure white pillowy head that leaves great lacing on a hazy bright orange color. Both floral and citrus hoppiness in the aroma, and almost a bit crackery for the malt. Again, floral and citrus hops for the flavor but some grassiness sneaks in as well. Nicely dry and bitter. Medium body with softer carbonation.

Big citrus and floral aroma.
Well balanced aftertaste and the bitterness is overwhelmingly positive.
Slightly watery. Love it!

Picked up a sixer for memorial day weekend. Pours clear copper color with beige soapy head that dissapates quickly. Nose is piney hops and full of citrus and other tropical fruits. tastes malty and kinda sweet but with just enough bittenr. gets plenty of hops and the grapefruit you want from an IPA. Great lasting finish perfect for this muggy Friday night I doubt the sixer will survive through memorial day
