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!
