This liquid dream pours a hazy golden orange straw color with a large puffy white two-finger head. First sip of this beer rewards with a super juicy hop presence bursting with fresh orange and lemon citrus then continues to introduce toasted malt undertones.

Really good batch for this year. Bottled on 10/3/2016; enjoyed from an IPA glass on 10/22/2106. Pours hazy, dark, gold with a two finger head. Aroma: pine with hints of citrus. Subtle hop on the palate, with a refreshing center & a pleasantly bitter finish. Big fan of the wet hopped when done right.

Gotta mention the price point, which is higher than any single IPA I’ve ever seen, higher than their iipa four packs and basically the same price as their barrel aged wee heavy. That aside, I’ve had lots of 4.1-4.2 hoppy beers from founders. Well into excellent status, but no style leaders except maybe All Day. This is probably my favorite hoppy beer they make. Golden pour with thick head that sticks to the glass. Aroma is citrusy,and a little dank, piney malty. Sticky body borders on a double. Flavor is very complex...citrus, light pine and melon, ample bitterness but sweetness to counteract, and a roasted malt character that provides a nice balance. A contemplative IPA that o thorp girly enjoyed. Bottled 10/3, get it while its fresh.

Voodoo (575) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Pours a clear deep golden color with a pure white head which laces well but gone in a hurry.....aroma of citrus, melon, sweetness......taste is beginning of tart, citrus, orange, melon, touch of dankness near the end, bitterness overwhelmed by flavors......after a few moments the residual chloride aste of a swimming pool liner, which is less than pleasant and not the first for this type of hop.

SG111 (1297) - New York, USA - OCT 16, 2016
Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Pours honey, filtered clear. Creamy white head. Aroma is lots of citrus, pine, orange, lemon, mango, tropical juicy fruit. Wow. Very impressed. Flavor is mosaic hops, juicy, tropical, slightly dank, that sort of soapiness that seems to come with it, orange, grapefruit. Nice. One of the best IPAs I’ve had from Founders.

Pours a light golden amber color with a small disappearing head. Aromas of citrus hops, sweet malts, and a hint of fruit. Flavors of grapefruit, orange, with subtle hints of caramel.

An excellent way to finish a new beer filled week. A medium hop aroma, but a stronger body. Very fresh and effervescent, this is some top notch stuff.

migwell (277) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Poured into a tall tulip, this pale orange filtered brew produced a half-inch, pretty persistent head with lots of tiny bubbles shooting up. Aroma of (surprise) hops and malt. I like the wet hopped style, and this is a really good example, with a bit of a brief bitter finish. Got some orange, a bit of caramel and it is a bit resinous. I think wet-hopped could be a style of its own, since this, and others (Tree House Julius, for example) are pretty different from standard IPA’s. Anywho, this is a good brew, and per the sub-style, can only be a seasonal, following the hop harvest. Salud!

My 250th beer drank! This doesn't mean anything for anyone else, but this is for my own reference. However, it was a great beer. A bold IPA that has a kick of flavor in ever drink. Smooth bodied and smells fresh. Some of Grand Rapid's finest.

HuskerTan (1717) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle. A- Juicy, pine, pineapple, orange, tropical citrus. A- Golden color, clear liquid, white head. T- Pine, bitter, juicy, citrus, orange. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- The deScription basically sums it up. Smells and tastes of very juicy tropical fruits with a bit of juicy pine. The more you drink the more it fades into a piney bitterness. Not too shabby at all.

Draft. Amber beer with a cream head. Grapefruit aroma. Pine and grapefruit flavor. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and pine lingers with light earth.
