Orange, demarera and hops on nose, big dry hoppy bite with citrus returning in a huge dry hop and alcohol finish. Stunning stuff!

On tap June 16, 2009. Orange brown with moderate head mostly diminishing. Tasty with alcohol, very potent. I prefer regular IPAs

Descent IIPA, had late in my round of drinking at Founders, so it may have taken away a little from this brew. Very grapefruity, some pineyness, huge hops. Alcohol makes itself qutie noticeable, but still pretty rock solid.

My notes aren’t very clear on this one ... I had sampled many others prior so take with a grain of salt. Dark amber in color with a quickly diminishing head. Nice hoppiness amd lots of it. A little too syrupy. Still a very good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
growler form brewery, hop / alcohol nose, clear brown / amber body with a white ring of a slightly lacey head, flavor has a hoppy intenseness, with an alcohol finish, a good iipa that still has a little ways to go to reach perfection.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
draft at 2004 MSBF. small light brown head on an amber body. average malt profile, but super-hoppy candy-like aroma. tons of hops--i would venture to guess that it is hoppier than DFH 90 minute IPA, but less balanced. good beer nonetheless.

Draft at MBG fest. Ruby orange color. Small thin head. Hoppy aroma with slight malt aroma. Taste of malt and quick hop astringency. Tasty.

too much crystal malt for me overall. a good whap to the head with extra bitter grassy, acidic hops. Intense sweet crystal malt sticking out. this was like a two pronged assault.
