thelizard (46) - Santa Barbara, California, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Bottle from Winking Lizard. Best smelling IPA Ive come across. Reminds me of a 90-minute, as it is a good blend between malt and hops. Nice, dark, non-pisslike appearance.

Medium offwhite head. Hazy amber body. Strong strawy tropical fruit aroma with grassy alcohol notes. Dry-sweetish tropical fruit, alcohol, and paper taste with grassy mealy notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish, astringent mouthfeel. Dry-bitter papery toffee aftertaste with lingering tropical fruit and wax notes. Nice, but perhaps a bit old? (0.355l bottle, Systembolaget, Stockholm.)

Pine / citrus aroma, grapefruit. Light copper-colored, very slight haze. Small dense off-white head w/ decent retention. Lots of carbonation. Some oily lacing. Tastes like it smells: Flowers, citrus fruit, pine. Velvety mouthfeel, medium body. Fruity / dry finish. Founders does it again!

Dfonorow (2153) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Pours orange/yellow with little to no head. Decent lacing with a crazy amount of carbonation. Aroma is of oranges, pine, flowers, citrus... all in all pretty normal for an IPA. Taste is strong on the citrus and leads into a dominant hoppy finish. Very good representation of an IPA.
