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

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.

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 I’m in the mood for one.

I’m 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 I’ll say this: If you don’t like finding out the next day that you drunk texted your ex, slept with voluptuous women you wouldn’t 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.

Bottle into a glass. Pour is reddish brown. Aroma is hops and fruit. Flavor is great, hops, pine, fruits. Awesome beer.

Just paid $21 for a four pack. Totally, completely, wholly worth it. That's my review. Hope it's helpful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

revolution2718 (208) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

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.
