It’s shocking to see the alcohol content on this bottle... It doesn’t taste like it is that high.

Bottle. Golden and slightly bitter. Lots of complex flavours burst out the bottle. As good as I expected and worth trying.

jackafholmes (370) - - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle from hop hideout, sheffield. Pale orange ale with small white head. Aroma is fruity with Orange peel and grapefruit. Taste is brilliant crisp dry bitterness. My respect for founders is gaining speed, probably the best major brewery in usa.

Niall73 (1871) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a white head. Light tangerine aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Nice hit of bitterness - just a touch if sticky sweetness. Light caramel, pine, woody resin, lemon... Nice balance. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kirk36 (155) - Peabody, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Strong willed ipa. Not syrupy enough to qualify as a double ipa. Certainly strong enough alcohol wise. Straight head while drinking this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mjp12 (444) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2014
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 (771) - 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 (4248) - 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 (2309) - 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 I’m thinking it’s 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
