Bottle, bought @ Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam.
Pours a lovely clear amber with a fine, medium, staying, creamy, off-white head. Very lovely hoppy aroma. Big pine, flowers, grass and heather. Some fruity apricot notes as well. Quite low carbonation, garnering a fine, dry and oily mouthfeel. Flavour is elegantly hoppy. Not over the top in any way. Piney again, grassy, dry, light perfume. A fair malty balance that never interferes with the hops. This is a very good IPA, but at 7,2 % it is a bit on the steep side in alcohol.

I bought a couple bottles online just to see what these Midwest IPAs are like. The color was dark orange (almost brown) with a very nice head. there was a slight citrus component to the smell. The taste seemed very balanced between malt and hop. I was kinda expecting a hop-bomb but this was still a very solid IPA. The website touted it as "the rich mans Two-Hearted" and I did enjoy it more than the two-hearted I drank just prior. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-04-2007 16:01:33

12 fl oz bottle. Pours cloudy dark orange with a small, off-white and creamy head. Aroma is slight soapy, crisp peachy, grassy and vague spiced. Sweet fruity, light peachy and light caramelish sweet flavoured. Dry and bitter towards the end with a mild grassy touch. Vague soapy note. Rather dry and bitter finish.

Flaske: Dejlig duft af blomstret humle med en god snert af citrus, ovenp en ravfarvet l med et fint skumhoved. Smagen er kraftig humlet med en ordentlig dosis bitterhed, men dog med en fint afbalanceret maltsdme som gr den ekstrem drikbar. Virkelig en lkker l.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2010 15-JAN-2010, bottle @home, from "Fish & Beer". Pours orange with fine white head. The nose is - IPA, well not just any IPA. This is fantastic. Very bitter, grape fruits, oranges, pineapples, but also some slightly roasted notes from the malt. A little thin on the palate, but otherwise almost IIPA-like wiht the heavy malt presence to balance the immense hop amount. Very long, very bitter aftertaste with a fine medium carbonation. Certainly one of the best IPAs I have ever had. Never had a boring Founders. They are not like some of the other breweries that just try to make stronger beers, they always give the style an edge. Thank you, Founders:)
