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

unclemike (2544) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Copper golden colored, foamy tan head. Hoppy aroma of course with notes of nut and spices. Sharp but still balanced. Fruity notes also and hints of chocolate. Extremely hoppy flavor. Thick, full and warming and extremely bitter and biding. Nutty, spicy and caramelly tones hiding behind the bitterness

Beerathon (1554) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Amber pour with flecks of red, semi-creamy ecru head and layers of lacing. Big, full-bodied mouth feel, almost syrupy. It has some heat/booziness from the high ABV. Sweet malt backbone and bitter hop presence. Citrus, resin, caramel in nose and flavor. It’s a fricken huge beer, not for the faint of heart.

Padron4KM (660) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUN 5, 2015
12 oz bottle, bottled 4/24/15.
Dark amber, tight tan head above lively carbonation. Nice retention.
Aroma is dank, earthy, tropical, and a little caramel malt.
Flavor is mostly hops, dank, citrus, resin. There is some caramel sweetness in there to keep it from getting sideways, Long bitter finish.

madelfonatree (105) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Look - Burn orange almost red color. Very appetizing. Medium tan head with medium sized bubbles. No retention. Smell - Alcohol. Malt. Bread. Dank. Spicy. Taste - Alcohol and grapefruit/fruits up front. Caramel. Smell translates to taste. Almost a triple to taste. Feel - Creamy/syrupy but light bodied? Doesn’t explode with carbonation. Overall - It reminds me of Double Crooked Tree. I tried it as soon as soon as it arrived in Columbus.

hopwine (531) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Nose is heavy on the booze, some pine. Flavor is some candied pineapple, dried apricot, grapefruit rind, burnt sugar, more pine, heavy booze. Eh just kind of dumb and unrefined.

Franckg (461) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
Intense. Taste of explosive malts and hops attack your palate aggressively. Very long bitterness. Not my kind of booze but drinkable.

Monotyp (5) - Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 17, 2015 does not count
Zum ersten mal in New York City getrunken und begeistert. Ein richtig krass gehopftes I.P.A. dass seinem Namen alle Ehre macht. Geschmack ist süßlich malzig mit ordentlichen Hopfenaromen. Durch den hohen Alk.-Gehalt wärmt es richtig von Innen.
