An imperial IPA that was brewed to turn your world upside down. Hops have got you coming and going. Pungent aromatics up front paired with a malt balanced backbone and a smooth bitter finish. 86 IBUs.

A fantastic IPA, floral, hoppy sherbet notes on the nose, there is enough malt to give a thick mouthfeel, much thicker than most DIPAs, but then the hops come to the fore again on the finish. Very easy drinking for its 9.4%, you could happily tackle a few pints of this.

gripweed57 (823) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - DEC 18, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Hazy gold topped by a medium-sized rocky beige head. Citrus hop nose. Big bitter hops right in your face. Huge alcohol presence. Not for the faint of heart. Finish is dry and bitter. Nuff said.

allmyvinyl (4855) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 17, 2014
355ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Drunk because I am in double trouble tonight... Maybe a bottle of dog house would be more appropriate... Pours clear pale gold, thin white head. Aromas are resin, citrus, pot pourri. Taste is oily, bitter, sweet too. Lots of oily resin hops. Chewy. Nice.

unclemike (2359) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Pours copper-gold with a big grapefruit hop aroma. The flavor is hugely bitter. Those hops are of course good though Iím thinking itís out of balance even for the style. There is a little sweetness in there with something that reminded me of brown sugar. Of course it has that long bitter IIPA finish.

A very enjoyable beer from Founders. Smooth with a bitter finish. A great double IPA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Hanoi (507) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2014
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.

AKORN (220) - Virginia, USA - DEC 5, 2014
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

beer-yum (689) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 2, 2014
Sampled from draught (at Draught 55). A superbly smooth brew. Its potency is masked by the perfectly balanced flavour - and makes it dangerously delicious.

Poured a light to medium rust with no head. Nicely balanced in the mouth. Didnít hit me over the head with hops.
