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

Pours a beautiful reddish amber Color with a nice creamy head. Excellent lacing and head retention. Smells floral and hoppy. Tastes of lavendar and citrus hops. Freaking outstanding! A smooth, delicious drink for a 12%. Loved this!

Au nez, on sent beaucoup le caramel et un peu d'alcool. En bouche, on goûte encore le caramel, une amertume bien présente et assez de grains. La finale est longue, alcoolisée et amère. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The first triple IPA I had though I did have 120 minute. This one is maltier and I don’t like that so much in this one. It tangles with barleywine and strong ale territory. That aside this is great in autumn. Citrus pine toffee resin aromas and flavors. Long warm bittersweet finish. Abv isn’t hidden but no overly apparent either.

MadRobin (2223) - Silver Spring, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Hazy, reddish copper with small khaki head and excellent lacing. Aroma of pine, toffee, orange and grapefruit. Taste of citric hops (mainly grapefruit and orange), toffee, pine and alcohol. Full body and high/medium carbonization. Very hoppy, but with enough malt and alcohol that it could have just as well been classified as a hoppy barleywine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep reddish copper with small lacing. Nose is caramel, candy lace, very sweet. Taste is candy-like, with some bittering. Nice thick mouthfeel. It’s an interesting brew that’s more like a dessert beer.

Draught sample at SBWF. Heavy malty like a barley wine with hop oils. Extra of everything and over the top, good but too much.

Citrus, grapefruit, caramel aroma. Pours a brownish orange. Strong caramel citrus taste. Good bitter kick on palette.

bavarian81 (66) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Aroma is very citrusy, definitely grapefruit. It has a very dark copper color and barely any head. Taste is very intense.. mostly citrus, a good amount of hops, and... alcohol. It might be a bit strong for my taste. Overall it does taste good. Just not sure if 12%abv beers are for me

Sample @ SBWF. Hard to rate and describe. Tastes a bot like a overhopped barley wine or a bock bier on steroids. Notes of pine needles, marzipan and grapefruit.
