bottle from Canals in Egg Harbor Twp. Great DIPA.......Founders just makes great brew...period. Is it the best DIPA I’ve ever had? No, but it’s a damn good one. Awesome smokin’ hop aroma, nice mouthfeel, awesome flavor....and very appropriate bitterness throughout. I’ll enjoy drinking a lot of this!

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Fruity and sweet and a bit harsh astringency on the finish. Reminds of GD Hercules, not a fan. Least favorite Founders beer, I think.

Nice citrus nose. Good hop character that fades but sticks with you as you consume more. Piney and resin taste. A little thin on the palate. Overall good, but not blow you away.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark yellow and fairly clear. Small amount of white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops and maybe a bit of malty sweetness in the background. Taste follows the nose with up front hops and some bitter citrus with floral mixed in and a hint of sweet. This is my first time having this offering and it was superb.

Bottle from Grapevine Wine and Spirits. Aroma is tropical fruits, guava, mango, some grapefruit. Awesome! Pours out a golden color, small white head. Flavor is interesting. Grass, grapefruit, sharp cheddar, onion, guava, papaya. It’s a lot drier than I expected. I like it. I’m not sure if the funky flavors I mentioned were intended...but...it’s good.

Aroma was not as sweet and hoppy as I’ve come to expect from DIPA’s. The flavor is spot on though. I can dig it!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - Dark yellow with a small head and I was really trying for a thicker one. Grapefruit citrusy nose and absolute grapefruit taste inside out. Very hoppy. Medium backbone and grapefruit peel dry. Good!

On tap at Ashley's in Ann Arbor. Not quite getting the aromas and flavor that others have experienced so a little disappointed. Still a very good beer.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
resin, spruce, citrus, golden, sparkling, frothy, very bitter, full body, sticky, lively. Wonderful imperial IPA packing a wallop of hops that you can smell and taste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear light orange color with 1" of white head that fades to a wisp and light lacing. Aroma is citrus and hop bitterness. Flavor is citrus, particularly grapefruit and tangerines, and fresh hops with a solid malt backbone. Slight booze in the finish, but not unpleasant. A great DIPA.

Flaska@Monks Sveavägen. Bärnstensfärgad grumlig vätska. En tät och ljuvlig doftvägg möter en, där citrus, mango och tallbarr spelar på första raden. Balanserad smak där varken sötma eller beska drar iväg. Fyllig munkänsla. Oj då, 9,4%. Det märks inte.
