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

Bottle brought back for Christmas by my brother. Poured a really nice amber/red color with off white head. Aroma was both strong in malt and hops; citrus and caramel. Almost smelled like an american strong ale. Flavor was similar to the aroma, and was very bitter, even for the style. Alcohol was well hidden considering the percent. Some caramel and sweetness throughout. Solid represenation of the style.

drseamus (103) - Troy, New York, USA - DEC 24, 2007
Good red body with no head served in a snifter at the brewpub. There is a strong citrus hop aroma. The flavor matches the aroma, but with a very pronounced hop bitterness in addition to the hop flavor. The malty background manages to balance this beer somehow. It is surprising light for the flavor; around medium body.

after4ever (7411) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2007
12-oz. Pours crystal clear dark amber with a thick, poofy off-white head. Plenty of webby lace. Modest little candied orange pith nose. Attractive, but unprepossessing. Medium body, some carb. Big resiny wallop right from the getty. Sweet caramel undertones, but mostly lots of resin and pine on the mid-palate, swirling into a piney and resinous finish. No sign of the booze at any point. Not half bad.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2007
Bottle. Amber-orange color with a oily head. Like sersdf said, 100 times better than 120 minute IPA. So much more balanced and not syrupy. It’s a suped up DIPA, which is what it should be. Floral, grapefruit, really good finish. Really, really good.

bierkoning (12038) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle. orange red color. Strong grapefruit and red berries aroma. Oily hops, lemon, grapefruit en red berries in the flavor, so abundant that it attacks and almost conquers the alcoholic character of this beer. Oily hoppy peppery aftertaste with red berries. A big beer in all aspects, but still with a good balance.

stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2011 overwhelming aroma of sweet malts, caramel. Complex malt character, some hoppiness, caramel, bread, a little bit of alcohol burning but not much considering the 13%+. a unique beast.

aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2007
The color was a hazy medium amber. The head was creamy, off-white, and thin. The aroma was very hoppy, citrisy, and pine. The flavor was alcohol, hopps, a slight waxyness/bitterness at the back of the mouth, citris, and pine. The palate was thick-bodied. The finish was warm and hoppy.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Pours a beautiful ruby color with tannish head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, vanilla, chocolate, alcohol, and pine. Flavor is sweet and malty in the beginning with a piney finish. Palate is sticky, but that is the only detraction for this complex and intense brew.
