COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Founders most complex, most innovative, most feared and yet most revered ale produced. Massive in complexity the huge malt character balances the insane amount of alpha’s used to create this monster. More IBU’s than any brewery has documented, more than you would believe and dry-hopped for twenty-six days straight with a combination of 10 hop varieties. Dangerously drinkable and deliciously evil. We dare you to dance with the Devil. 112 IBUs

Monotyp (5) - Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 17, 2015 does not count
Zum ersten mal in New York City getrunken und begeistert. Ein richtig krass gehopftes I.P.A. dass seinem Namen alle Ehre macht. Geschmack ist süßlich malzig mit ordentlichen Hopfenaromen. Durch den hohen Alk.-Gehalt wärmt es richtig von Innen.

thorongil2 (1492) - , Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2015
(bottle) hazy reddish amber colour with a small beige head; aroma of lychee, honey, candy; rich flavour with a long strong bitter finish; excellent - pretty much a barley wine

VastActiv (3494) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2015

sinfull (987) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Amber , almost reddish color; big yellowish head . Aroma of resin , caramel and grapefruit. Brewers reached a perfect balance between huge IBU and caramel sweetness in the taste. Great beer.

Ferris (6782) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
Draft - Caramel malts and some resin with some vinous notes. Clear copper with a rich beige head. Boozy caramel notes, vinous and some hoppy bitterness. More like an American Barleywine.

mikedR (1491) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Very good, but I’m still missing the point with triple IPAs. The reason why is that they get syrupy and resiny with the higher ABV. I’ll stick with DIPAs.

LoFi (1637) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2015
Draught, Bishop’s Järntorget. Hazy amber, off-white head. Sweet, malty, toffee, boozy, dark fruit, citrus, pine, heavy, heady. Nice.

Aroma: Sweet, malty nose. Appearance: Cloudy, dark-ruby amber color. Thin off-white colored, one-finger head that disappeared almost instantly. No lacing. Taste: Malt. Caramel. Grapefruit. Cherries. Hops tempers fruity taste well. Balanced. Hops not terrible distinctive for a triple IPA. Palate: Smooth. Overall: I poured this 12 oz. bottle into a glass in which I like to drink beer. The beer was bottled 5/20/2014 (opened eight months later) which may explain its weak carbonation. Well balanced for 12% alcohol but doesn’t drink as big as a I would imagine a triple IPA would. RateBeer member Barnoloid summed it up well, "...IPA that doesn’t feel much like an IPA. The feel is more barleywine." #respectbeerbrethren.
