Was very excited to finally get this in my area, on the west coast, Founders is a highly regarded craft brewery on the east coast, Grand rapids Michigan, heard so many great reviews on their beers, KBS, Double Trouble, so go into this review I expected quite a lot, I must say I am not disappointed, but here on the west coast we have much better IPA's, not putting this beer and the east coast down, hey, that is where I was born and raised, this brew is typical a east coast beer, brewed like a west coast beer, dry hopped with only Centennial hops, very much a staple hop on the west coast, Cascade hops on crack, so to speak, so I am very familiar with this hop character and taste, fruity, Citrus, back end has that tobacco finish, extremely dry, a very well done IPA, I am not disappointed, Founders deserves the high rating they get with their beers, I really can see why people on the east coast love this beer, they are seeking on hoppy beer that sometimes they cannot get from the west coast, Very good, I with be waiting for some more from this great brewery, KBS, and Double Trouble on my list

I thought this was going to have more hop to it. It was actually pretty level as far as hop goes. Pool beer 2. Finished with much less hip but great maltiness.

Can't lie. Drinking straight out of the can. But it's 100 degrees outside. This pure Michigan IPA has a copper hue and a nice malty backbone not present in West Coast IPA's. Centennial hops spice up the citrus and give it muscle.

Amber color. Grapefruit, orange, and hint of honey. Just the right amount of bitterness. Deceiving 7.2%. Dry finish.

Nice head, color, aroma. An IPA that hoppy but not bitter. Good stuff coming out of Grand Rapids these days, drink up!
