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

yespr (30747) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2008
12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy deep orange to amber with a fully gone head. Dense pinewood hoppy aroma. Solid sweet malty at first but with a very intense dark hoppy flavour following. Quite dominant and almost overempowering. Solid roasted caramel malt for base providing some decent counter balance to this.

Ungstrup (29135) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2005
A hazy amber beer with a small disappearing orange head. The aroma is super hoppy - with lots of alfa acid - lovely but overpowers any other aromas. The flavor is like chewing on fresh hops giving the impression of lots of alfa acids, hop oil, and a bitter end. Nice one.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Beautiful, dark amber - almost yellowish brown head. Fat aromas of alcohol and hops. Extremely potent body, lots of sweetness and caramel on a bed of hops, hops, hops. And hops. 200+ IBUs, 10 different hop varieties and dry-hopped in 26 days is extreme by any standard. 240705

Hazy deep red-amber beer. Light silky palate. Immediate alcohol aniseed and rich bitter hops. Lingering rich malt and a long bitter hop aftertaste. An intense IPA with some barleywine character. Carbonated bite to finish. Marvelous!

MiP (13513) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2008
Bottle, 13%. Spicy hop aroma. Cloudy dark orange colour. The flavour starts off quite hoppy, grassy and grapey aroma hops. Turns quite sweet, almost syrupy. The bitterness is distinct, slightly rough.
