One of my favorites in a short Ipa drinking career. Can’t get enough of this beer, bought a few cases on special at $4 per four pack. Nice taste and smooth for a 9.4% ipa. Love it.

phikus (96) - syracuse, New York, USA - JAN 3, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 Nothing special tastes like it could be a double centennial ale. A little too malty. This bottle is four months old but that shouldn’t mellow it that much. Really bummed with this one.

sawbuck (379) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Mild aroma of pine and some citrus from hops. Paler in appearance than anticipated. Deep yellow with a thin white head. Rich malt up front underneath some heavy bitterness. Warming alcohol burn as it finishes. Bitterness is ripe up front, but mellows somewhat on finish. Watery mouth feel....thin. Average.

johndoughty (4133) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle. Golden and slightly bitter. Lots of complex flavours burst out the bottle. As good as I expected and worth trying.

jackafholmes (488) - - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle from hop hideout, sheffield. Pale orange ale with small white head. Aroma is fruity with Orange peel and grapefruit. Taste is brilliant crisp dry bitterness. My respect for founders is gaining speed, probably the best major brewery in usa.

Niall73 (1965) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a white head. Light tangerine aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Nice hit of bitterness - just a touch if sticky sweetness. Light caramel, pine, woody resin, lemon... Nice balance. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kirk36 (167) - Peabody, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Strong willed ipa. Not syrupy enough to qualify as a double ipa. Certainly strong enough alcohol wise. Straight head while drinking this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
