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 alphaís used to create this monster. More IBUís 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

Beautiful amber. Hoppy notes on the nose and tongue up front. Big malt smack in the face and the backend. And a little nutty flavor on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Let this one calm down for a few months. This is the standard for a triple ipa. Founders knocks it out of the yard again with this beast. Only hopheads need apply

Legal for recreational use in Colorado and Washington state. Hazy orange brown pour with thin white head. Aroma is dank body odor and citrus rind, but in a good way. Taste follows the nose with a bitter finish. Almost oily mouth feel.

Bottle date partially rubbed off: so unk A: Pours a nice ruddy amber ale with less than a finger of creamy foam which dissipates to a sheet of the same. No lace. S: Wow, this shitís dank like a muthaí fuckaí (insert Sam Jackson voice over). I really canít smell anything beyond the weed notes. Jesus, this takes me back to high school. I really canít imagine a "triple IPA", but Iím convinced this is the definition. T: Snap! Weed, lemon rinds, rosemary (burnt), body odor, onion, more weed. Goddam this is hardcore. I like it....too much. M: Medium bodied with moderate on low carb. Man, this beer is fucking intense, I struggle to care about anything except to say, the hops are insane!!!! O: Wowzaa! I havenít had a hop bomb like this in years. I mean, when you first start drinking IPAís and you look for the most intense oral hop rape?! Yeah, this does that....again. Fuck me rotten this is insane. I canít even tell if I like it cuz I finished so fast, which makes me want more! Like my first piece of pussy. Serving type: bottle 09-18-2011

Bottle. Amber with thick white head. Deep, deep flavor here. They arenít kidding around with the IBUs. Tight and tart with some intense hop flavor here. Well balanced but the finish is quite astringent. A monster of an IPA. Will be cellaring a few to see how they age.

degbert (1004) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very dark amber-red with a low, large-grained, white head with minimal lace. Nose is very clean and more floral and herbal than anything else; equal parts mint and hollyhock. However, thereís the citrus on the tongue -- good gods, thatís like getting hit in the face in a grapefruit (with apologies to James Cagney). Astringent, almost puckering, but pulled back from the brink by balanced malt sweetness. Too much for this malthead, but damn, itís well made. Finish is long, herbal, and warm. Very well done, but not my cup of tea.

A: Amber/Mild Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, Thin Off White Head Ring, Mild Lacing S: Sweet Bread Malts, Piney T: Piney, Mildly Floral, Bready Malts M: Average Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Semi Drying Overall, way too much hype behind this beer especially for the price they are charging for it. It is just an overly malted pine bomb....nothing more, no balance or positive hop flavor to it.

Zer0 (1125) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours cloudy copper. Aroma is big hops, some alcohol, grassy, citrusy, caramel and very earthy. Taste is moderate sweet and very bitter. Quite good if you like the style. Full bodied with soft carbonation. A bit sticky texture.
