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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Beermoth, Manchester. Hazy gold. Film of white head, that lasts to the end. Dank, orange hop. Light toffee. Hint of spice. Ripe fruit, and overripe banana in the background. Taste is spicy bitter. Some sweet. Palate is full, quite rich. A little boozy. Finishes oily bitter. Some dryness on the close. Not hugely vibrant, but nevertheless very tasty and drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A- Bready, caramel, citrus, hoppy, malty.
A- Copper color, cloudy liquid, off white head.
T- Bready, caramel, citrus, bitter.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, bready bitter finish.
O- At first sip you get kicked in the teeth with the amount of hops in this beer. It starts out with a nice bready caramel palate that quickly turns into a fruity taste and then instantly leaves you with bitterness that tingles your tongue on the finish. Overall, this is a good beer, certainly not my favorite from Founders, but one I can appreciate.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. Pours orange with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, sweet malt and ripe pears. Body is full and tangy. Citrusy hops dominate the palate, while biscuit malt and ripe fruit provide some support. Finish is long, dry, and bitter. Excellent brew.
