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

Copper body with a very thin white head. Heavy hops and heavy malts. Sweet, but that is expected for 12%. More drinkable than double crooked tree which measures in at a similar ABV. Bitter finish, but not over the top. Good brew. I probably prefer double trouble for its drinkability, but this is nice.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 10, 2009
(Sample Date: 6/12/2009 Source:Other) 1.3 year old bottle. Caramelized maltyness with spicy hops in aroma. Cloudy orange amber with little head. Big hop spiciness in flavor with aged malt sweetness. Finish was very sweet and very bitter. Definite hop bomb.

Drake (11499) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 10, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a medium head. Decent head retention and lacing. Very bitter resiny hop aroma with some floral notes as well as toffee and berries. Taste is citrus, berries and other fruity notes from the hops with a lingering bitterness that grows as you drink the beer. Lots of resin and pine in there as well. Toffeeish malts and nutty notes lead to a nicely balanced beer. Bitter and sweet. Full bodied and slightly sticky. Very nice.

topherh (1922) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Pours coppery with a one inch beige head. Huge citrus hop and caramel malt in the nose. Flavor is lots of hoppy bitterness with a bit of malty sweetness and some ripe fruit to try and balance it out.

GandGKevin (933) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUL 9, 2009
WOW! This is right up there with some of my favorite DIPA/TIPA. Very hoppy and delicious. Grapefruity and a little tangerine. Excellent finish.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep amber with a rocky, tan head that has good retention and leaves excellent lacing. Aroma of strawberry cheesecake, pineapple juice, caramel apple. Taste is incredibly refreshing and easy to drink despite its insane credentials. Lots of fresh, high-alpha acid hops, caramel malt, strawberries, papaya. Sweet flavors gain prominence over the relentless amount of hops giving this triple IPA a very balanced character. The only other triple IPA I have tried is DFH 120 min, which was undrinkable in my opinion. This is the opposite. I demolished this beer way too quickly. The 12% abv is extremely well hidden. Overall excellent.

Moggman (235) - Columbus, USA - JUL 6, 2009
Bottle. Pours amber with little off white head. Aroma is hoppy with caramel notes in the background. Flavor is citrus hops, grapefruit, caramel. Very big beer, but very enjoyable.

Blaze312 (132) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2009
On tap at founders. Pours a red/amber color. Smells like hops galore. This beer isn’t called triple IPA for nothing. The hops are very strong in this one, with some aftertaste of the alcohol.

stankenk (130) - Maplewood, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2009
Pours cloudy amber. The nose is caramel and hops. Comes across the palate as caramel, honey, and hops. Excellent heavy sipper.
