12 oz bottle pours a copper red with a small white head and little lacing. Amazing flavor but expensive.

Pours a clear copper on tap with thin off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma is big on the caramel malt with a nice hoppy back end. Taste follows, very big, definitely feel the booze on the way down, but still resinous citrus and pine notes, good bitterness. Intense but nice.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beautiful looking beer with a appealing creamy to oily palate. Soft carbonation leaves the heavy flavors of hops and malts to linger on the tongue. Flavor builds slowly, piney hops with rich sweet fruit. Very sweet but finishes with lingering hops on the back of the throat. A great IPA but very sweet and it occasionally tempts me away from my favorite barley wines when Iím in the mood for one.

Iím not really sure what the specifics are with this beer as far as hops and malt but I drank the four pack that I paid $22 for. I tasted a lot of hops and I tasted a lot of alcohol and Iíll say this: If you donít like finding out the next day that you drunk texted your ex, slept with voluptuous women you wouldnít have normally (which may or may not be your ex) than you might wanna only have one of these beers, because if you drink the four there is no telling what might happen.

Just paid $21 for a four pack. Totally, completely, wholly worth it. That's my review. Hope it's helpful.

From Westmeister-thanks! Deep copper brown. Malt driven nose, with some pine and citrus hops. Sweet caramel, thick, hot. Basically an American barley wine.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a rich deep red mahogany with a quick dissipating head. Nose is floral hops, bready biscuity malt, a bit of caramel, alcohol,I feel like there's some cherry or stone fruits hiding in there. Taste is hops, lots of booze, bready malt, pine, caramel, balanced bitterness on the finish which lingers forever. Coats my mouth, very sticky. This is rough to drink. Very aggressive. Very challenging beer to get through.

Pours dark deep red with a light brown head. Wry subtle hop flavor at first sip. Almost a caramel taste but no malt. A thick feeling on the tongue. Then the hop flavor lingers long after swallowing. Long after swallowing.

Bottle in a pint glass. Pours a rich copper-amber color with a thin white head. I get aromas of citrus, pine, and dark fruits. Clean palate with alcohol warmth lingering on the tongue. Nice hoppy bitterness that is well balanced by the sweetness of the malts, which reminds me of prunes. This is a really easy drinking beer for such a high apv content. Another nicely done beer by Founders.
