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

This bold beauty is surprisingly easy drinking. True amber color and big light yellow head. Brutally bitter, but perfectly lovely, this boozy beer will test your will but hug you at the end.

Voodoo (294) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Pours a clear chestnut brown with a slight off white head which is gone quickly......aroma of mash, wine, malty breadiness......taste is sweet, wine, pine, bark, malt overdose, with heavy but not obnoxious bitterness finishing very sweet. For a triple, very well done, itís a well balanced overuse of a lot.

swanmann (590) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 5, 2014
The bottle pours dark amber tea color with some red tones, small amount of tan foam. Rich, deep aromas of caramel, honey, burnt sugar, pine sap, whiskey, grapefruit. The flavor is sweet and boozy, warm, with toasty bitterness. Hoppy twang does itís best to balance the intense sweetness and alcohol burn. Itís got a syrupy mouthfeel with fairly low carbonation. It finishes sweet, eventually closing with orange and honey, but some bitterness. Itís comparable to Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA, but the flavor profile is a little more low-note, deeper and richer. 120 Minute is a bit more wine-y.

TheBear11D (216) - Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2014
The Devil Dancer pours a ruby red with a thin tan brown head that doesnít last too long. The aroma is fairly pine dominated with floral and caramel also noticeable. The flavor is pine and floral up front with a touch of caramel and bread. The pine rides out well into the aftertaste. If you are searching for a strong hoppy sipper this is your brew. Overall this is a delicious brew.

Pours a deep ruby. Overall an excellent beer. My only quibble may be its classification. It smells and tastes more like a barleywine than an IPA. Specifically it reminds me a lot of SN Bigfoot.

4theluvofbeer (90) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
A great red copper pour with a small white head. Hoppy aroma with fruits, caramel and a touch on pine. The aroma flows though into the flavor in a big way with a warm alcohol finish. Another great Founder beer.

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

jbruner (2177) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2014
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.

Swamp_Thing (34) - Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2014
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.
