UPDATED: NOV 28, 2013 One of my top 5 favorite IPAs. Bottle poured into a 3 oz sampler glass. Nice appearance. Smooth, nicely done IPA. You dont get the sometimes bad bitterness like some low quality IPAs.

Goodgrief (2018) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 3, 2010
Good looking honey brown color, smallish head but nice lacing. Sweet malty aroma. Sweet caramel malt flavor, some teabag and a floral hop finish. I love all the flavors. My only criticism is that its a little too sweet. Not overly sessionable, but tasty nonetheless.

oh6gdx (26447) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2010
Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized off-white to beige creamy head that leaves quite a bunch of lace. Aroma is fruits, some floral hops as well as some bready and wooden notes. Flavour is fruity an floral hpos along with some bready and mildly yeasty notes. Quite smooth sweet maltyness as well. Wellbalanced and rather nice IPA.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2010 The classic, very grassy and citrucy hops. Body medium, very long aftermath. Standard high quality IPA.

Very nicely balanced, hoppy and floral aroma and flavor with hints of citrus and a touch of sweetness. This is one I would definitely have again.

A vigorous pour into my favorite snifter leaves a a cloudy gold/orange color with a thick, cloud-like head. The aroma is mildly sweet and floral. There are both floral and citrus notes in the flavor, and although it is fairly well-balanced, the hop bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is bright and refreshing despite the big, bitter flavor. Overall, a solid IPA.

beergodd1 (400) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Pours a slightly cloudy orange Into a Duvel Tulip. There was an inch foamy head, that slowly made its way down to about a quarter inch head that stayed all the way down. There were rings of lacing that followed the head as I sipped. The scent was perfect for an IPA, very hoppy and spicy with some piney notes. A slightly sweet citrusy taste up front is balanced off nicely by a very nice bitter finish. There is about as good of a balance as one would want with an IPA. This is nice IPA, I only wish I bought more than 1 in a mix pack. I should have known it would be great coming from Founders.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Pours amber with a medium white head. Nose is typical floral hops and sweet malt but fairly weak for an IPA. Flavor is substantially more full and is mostly malt on the front and biting hops on the back (well balanced overall). Finish is long and sticky and keeps the hops rolling. Good stuff.

Ron (3884) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Amber color, subtle floral/citrus aroma, nice balance of bitter and citrus flavor. A bit of caramel sweet and some pine. This is a nice IP, its not too hoppy. Thanks for the trade JB..
