3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 Poured from bottle into IPA glass. Pours a very clear golden color with an incredibly thick white fluffy head. Minimal to no lacing on the glass. Aroma is hoppy, piney, citrusy, and pineapple-y. Taste has a hoppy punch up front with similar notes as the aroma. Hides the 9.4% ABV well. Lingering bite even after each swallow is finished. Otherwise, goes down really smoothly.

Flaska från SB.
Rödbrun dimmig vätska med en fin liten brun skumkrona.
Doftar Baileys med kokos.
Kraftig alkoholsmak och Baileyskänslan ligget kvar.
Lämnar en bedövad gom med viss sötma och beska.
Ingen öl i min smak...

Very tasty. Good bitterness that lingers on the tongue. Slightly earthy in smell though hops wins out

I am no beer expert, I either like a brew or I dont, this brew serves its purpose for me, a decent tasting imperial that has a nice ABV number and gives me a nice smooth finish to the end of my day. I hate to drink the last one, but must move on to the next

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pen & Paper Log (Nov 2012)
Aroma - Piney hops and citrus are the most obvious notes, with some floral notes.
Appearance - body is an orange-amber color, liquid somewhat hazy, with a 1" white head.
Taste - big hops at work here, but complimented with strong supporting malt. there is also some fruity notes present - grapefruit/peach.
Palate - body is medium, the texture oily, carbonation subtle, the finish long and strong on the hoppy bitter index.
I’ve yet to come across a Founder’s beer that isn’t really good. This is just another example.

One of my favorite DIPAs. Great nose, great DIPA hoppy taste. A little more bitter than most Imperials, which is a good thing! Well done Founders!
