12oz bottle to snifter. Had a aroma of strong citrus honey and sweet flowers. The apperance was a copper orange with a thin white head. It had a mild grapefruit, honey and citrus flavor. The palate was a medium body with a chalky finish that was somewhat sticky. Overall it is very drinkable great IPA for the price.

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - FEB 26, 2010
Sleightly hazy brown with a medium bubbling light brown head. Strong aroma of grape with a mild mandarine background. Broad plesant bitterness that dries out in the finish with a subtle sweetness to back it up. Very clean and nice ipa.

BelgianBeerGal (4014) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Traded 12oz bottle. Pours a light bronze colour with a small off-white head and nice lacing. The aroma is sweet grapefruit hops and pineapple. Very nice citrus/orange flavour without overpowering bitterness. Dry finish that lasts a fair amount of time and has a little alcohol in it.

Pours clear amber. Floral aromas. Creamy on palate but balanced with medium bitterness and a slight maltiness on the back palate/finish. Refreshing and well-integrated.

For an IPA there is very little bite, color looks great but the flavor is not there at all!

Aroma is pine oil and flowery perfume. Pale malts and woody-ness are harsh. Could use a little more balance in the nose. The appearance is a hazy honey orange. Nice, fluffy head. Nice lacing. Flavor is very much akin to perfume. Pale malts come off very dry. Nice woody hops. Dark and bready roasted malt. Feels thick and slushy. Works for style, feels Imperial. Its an East Coast IPA: woody and hefty and hop-heavy.

dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - FEB 20, 2010
Enjoying this from a growler, pours reddish orange. Nice hop aromas, pine tree and grapefruit standing out, Im also picking the same things in the taste, citrusy and hoppy. This is a really nice IPA.

zizzybalubba (1845) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2010
12 oz. bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Pours golden orange with an off-white head. Big, but well-balanced aroma of pineapple, tangerines, pine needles, and wet grass. Bitter hop flavor yet well-balanced for a not too intense experience. Its still a hop lovers delight but the balance is exceptional. Founders makes great beers and this is indeed one of them.

Pours a not quite clear orange color with a very thin head, aroma of oranges, you can taste the hops in this one but they arent overpowering, there is a nice balance here, a slight bitter aftertaste reminds you that youre drinking an IPA.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2010
A little hazy golden colored beer, with a thick foamy beige head. The aroma of hop bitter with some fruits and some sweet. The taste is bitter of hops with in the back some sweet of fruits. The aftertaste is long bitter.
