3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I just had this beer on draft at the brewery, and enjoyed it very much. My main ’problem’ with this beer is that, simlar to what others have commented on here, it seems quite malty for an IPA. Bottom line for me is taste, though, and this has the hops and tastes great.

Burk från systembolaget. Färgen är mörk bärnsten . Kronan är vit och fluffig . Smaken är markerat bitter men inte för mycket. Välbalanserad. Allt som allt en mycket bra IPA. Mumsigt!

From bottle into snifter, clear deep orange with quickly dissipating head, nice hoppy aroma. Quite smooth with a sour/bitter bite, could be a bit smoother finish but a good IPA for sure.

Another great Founders beer. Strong and assertive, but not a "hop-bomb" or tropical. It's a top tier IPA that really has no weaknesses.
