Honey gold with huge fluffy head. Great fresh hop aroma. Taste - very pleasant hop flavors. Pine, citrus and a tad spicy. Ample biscuity malt backbone. Perfect balance of sweet malt and bitter hops. Drinks very smooth for big 7.6 ABV. Excellent!

Pretty good IPA. Plenty of juicy hops but still a solid malt backbone. Foamy head. MattH (908) - California, USA - OCT 31, 2016
Bottle. Slightly hazy light gold pour. Aroma of melon, orange, and berry. Flavor is pretty dry and includes lemon and orange. Niall73 (2434) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2016
Bottle at home while in Florida. Pours clear gold with a white head. Grassy, light caramel, biscuit aroma with a little piss. Medium body, medium carbonation. Light caramel, light tea, lemon, orange, grass, pine, hint of honey, light bread... Pretty good. phranq (250) - - OCT 28, 2016

Really good batch for this year. Bottled on 10/3/2016; enjoyed from an IPA glass on 10/22/2106. Pours hazy, dark, gold with a two finger head. Aroma: pine with hints of citrus. Subtle hop on the palate, with a refreshing center & a pleasantly bitter finish. Big fan of the wet hopped when done right.

Gotta mention the price point, which is higher than any single IPA I’ve ever seen, higher than their iipa four packs and basically the same price as their barrel aged wee heavy.
That aside, I’ve had lots of 4.1-4.2 hoppy beers from founders. Well into excellent status, but no style leaders except maybe All Day. This is probably my favorite hoppy beer they make. Golden pour with thick head that sticks to the glass. Aroma is citrusy,and a little dank, piney malty. Sticky body borders on a double. Flavor is very complex...citrus, light pine and melon, ample bitterness but sweetness to counteract, and a roasted malt character that provides a nice balance.
A contemplative IPA that o thorp girly enjoyed. Bottled 10/3, get it while its fresh. Voodoo (695) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Pours a clear deep golden color with a pure white head which laces well but gone in a hurry.....aroma of citrus, melon, sweetness......taste is beginning of tart, citrus, orange, melon, touch of dankness near the end, bitterness overwhelmed by flavors......after a few moments the residual chloride aste of a swimming pool liner, which is less than pleasant and not the first for this type of hop.

Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Pours honey, filtered clear. Creamy white head. Aroma is lots of citrus, pine, orange, lemon, mango, tropical juicy fruit. Wow. Very impressed. Flavor is mosaic hops, juicy, tropical, slightly dank, that sort of soapiness that seems to come with it, orange, grapefruit. Nice. One of the best IPAs I’ve had from Founders. oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Pours a light golden amber color with a small disappearing head. Aromas of citrus hops, sweet malts, and a hint of fruit. Flavors of grapefruit, orange, with subtle hints of caramel.
