Huge hop monster. This bad boy does the trick everytime. Love how easy drinking it is despite how much alcohol is in there.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Nose is more muted than I expected citrus, lots of pineapple, slight bread. Taste is strong pine, grapefruit, lychee, sweet honey tones, herbs, floral notes, finish is bitter but is undercut with a little caramel and biscuit.
Mouthfeel is rich.
This is a good beer, but it is not up to some of the more recent double IPAs I have had - which is surprising given Founders are outstanding.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy yellow, golden color with a light head. Pineapple, citrus aroma. Citrus bitterness, fruity sweetness, alcohol and rather light for the ABV. Good beer

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled from draught (at Draught 55). A superbly smooth brew. Its potency is masked by the perfectly balanced flavour - and makes it dangerously delicious.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a light to medium rust with no head. Nicely balanced in the mouth. Didn’t hit me over the head with hops.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy yellow-gold with thin cream-colored head. Aroma bready citrus, pineapple, pear, hint of lemon and cherry. Neat, but relatively mild nose for a double IPA. Medium-light body, watery with a grainy texture, fine, moderate-to-heavy carbonation with only mild burn. Flavor is Tons of sap, grapefruit rind, and raw grain. A bit hot on the exhale. A decent DIPA, not great though. This bottle is about 5 months old, so perhaps it is a different story when fresh.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from Total Wine & More - Gilbert, AZ. Gold, clear appearance with a a frothy, lingering white head. Aroma of pungent hops, light resin, pine, citrus, tropical fruit, light herbs and light floral notes. Similar flavor, pretty clean and smooth with medium to heavy bitterness and minimal to light malty sweetness. Good, but a bit dated perhaps.

3.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Not much of an aroma and basically no head. A great balanced, bitter taste that masks the alcohol well, then the alcohol comes through with great warmth.

Another Founders hit. Strong hop aroma with pine and floral. Golden copper color. Medium weight and smooth. Bitterness up front but balanced with a nice caramel backbone. Finishes well.
