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

TET (2591) - Kaarina, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2016
A dark orange colour, almost red, a head is medium and blond. Aroma is powerful, strong maltyness with caramel, pine, grapefruits, some warming alcohol. Taste has strong maltyness, resiny wood, some fruitness, hint of alcohol is there as it should be there, maybe. A bitterness is strong, but it’s not feel so strong due to heavy maltyness in the body. Full bodied but not heavy. Powerfully at all ways, tasteful... yeah it is.

humpah (114) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
0,355l bottle from Alko. Pours ruby colour with smallish head. Aroma has malts backed up by tropical fruits, some pine, caramel, dried fruits, alcohol gets through and makes it stronger and complex, bit wine-like. Strong taste, medium body. Quite well-structured, almost like a hoppy barley wine like someone said.

ADfan (852) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 8, 2016
In the glass the beer pours a deep amber color with a small head. Low carbonation. The aroma has some malts up front followed by some tropical fruits. The taste has more malts with some caramel and yeast. Light tartness on the finish.
