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

Sampler tap at Giant Eagle in Shadyside, Pittsburgh. This was quite good -- well balanced and not overly hopped qualities makes this quite exceptional. Really liked the creamy finish.

Deep orange-marigold, crystal clear, light tan head. Deep pine resin, intensely floral, light honey. Pretty bitter, good malt backbone. Very heavy, very oily, lots of acid. Long finish. Quite good.

Pours a amber, orangish in certain light. Frothy off-white head, nice lacing. Hops, brown sugar, caramel on the nose. Creamy, slightly oily mouthfeel. Butterscotch, toffee, caramel, resin. This is a great triple IPA. Hoppy bitterness and malty sweetness complement each other.

Savage_Night (145) - California, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Pours a vibrant amber with a khaki head with a very slight sage hue. Head retention is ok. AROMA: caramel, candy sugar, hibiscus, slight cinnamon spice, tangerines, floral hops, malty, red wine, mellow peppercorn, light orange zest and boozy. TASTE: herbal hops, sweet citrus, peppercorns, alcohol zing, caramel, malty, earthy, candy sugar, orange zest, spice, pine bitterness and a light sea salt. AFTER TASTE: peppercorns, bitter citrus, alcohol and hop oil spice with an oily feel and boozy warmth. Absolutely great. I would like to thank my friend Zachary from MI for the brews. ????

Just like Batman! WHAM! POW! SMACK!. This is huge! Pours a hazy darker copper with thin and quick to fizzle head. Bottled on 5-5-15. Aroma is boozy and a bit subdued for the onslaught about to happen. Flavor is huge, in you face hops, soy sauce and garlic. The amount of hops used here has to cure some form of cancer! Damn good if you like it bitter and big. Not too sweet. $21 a 4 pack is steep though.definately one of my favorite insane IPAs

I have gotten much pickier w my hop preferences due to such a now overwhelming number of them. This at 12% abv is very high and not subtle. Deep Amber color. Very little hop aroma as far as a smell, but it kicks you in the face right away on the first sip. I feel like the release time just puts me off on this one, its way to heavy for a spring/summer beer. If your at ur pad and u just wanna get muffed, start the night with this one on a rainy day. Burns, heavy, and way to forward on taste, as a winter release it would fare much better.

A real taste of hellfire and damnation, with this ode to the fiery one. Pours up a dark amber, with a red tint; and a nice tan head. A very pretty beer in the glass. Aroma is pine resin esters, some caramel and booze. The taste is malty, sweet and thick with caramel and booze. A heavy hard hitter for sure. You taste, smell, and feel the booze in this one. Full body heavy and thick.

Huge beer is an understatement with this one. Purposely bought a few last year and cellared them to compare with a fresh one. A fresh one has all of the right notes, big hop bomb with a malty backbone. But, rough around the edges and good, but not great. A beer cellared a year makes it completely different. The bitterness fades and this turned into one of the best IPAs I've had. Highly recommend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Pour. It’s rare that I am disappointed by founders, but it happens. Just too much all around with this one. So much going on, super complex but overly sweet and boozy. Pretty big mouthfeel and some definite dankness happening. Bitter on finish but I would expect so at 112 IBU’s. Drinks more like a Barleywine. Not a summer beer at all. Huge, huge beer. Will try again in Janurary.

Pine needle nose. Sweet boozy hits first then pine flavor and mild citrus. Almost buttery then finishes bitter
