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

tillmac62 (685) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Brown pour with a 2 finger head that laces well. Nose is slight, but of malt, alcohol and hops. The taste is complex. The malt serves as a backbone to aggressive hoping, which is amazingly balanced in terms of flavor and bitterness against a 12% alcohol content. Full bodied, which is rare in an IPA. It finishes balanced as well, with hop flavor and malt as the base with a lingering bitterness and alcohol note. This is a well crafted beer, especially considering the IBUs and alcohol content, but it takes those factors to extremes.

From notes. On draft at Vito’s, York, PA served in a snifter. Pours deep red/brown. Retains and laces well. Aroma of pine, grapefruit ans roasted malt. Taste is very bitter supported by a huge malt bill. Full bodied, light carbonation, sticky resin mouth feel. Finishes bitter that lingers. Tasting notes of caramel, chocolate malt, an array of citrus fruits, pine and alcohol. This was a fantastic triple IPA that demands respect. Delicious!

DeliriumT (491) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2016
Pours a delectable rose hued copper colour. Aroma of golden syrup mixed with a hint of lemon juice. Beautifully balanced taste, ever so slightly harsh at the finish. Beautiful beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marstonlad (760) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Pours fairly clear reddish brown with a big, frothy head. The intense aroma features dark fruitiness, caramel maltiness, toffee and a mix of pine and resin – potent, and bursting with hops. Taste is light to medium sweet initially. Quickly it receives a dose of brutally strong hoppiness that sweeps the sweetness from the board; citrus fruits, pine and resin are present among various flavours that come up. Bitterness reaches formidable levels. Alcohol warms but does not feature in the taste. The palate is full-bodied and a bit sticky, low on carbonation. Intense and dangerously good.

Bottle. Slightly hazy dark golden pour, with a red tint. Nose is malty, taste nice and bitter with a clear malty note. Full body, soft carbonation.

Muggus69 (2115) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2016
355mL bottle from Slowbeer. Bottled on 05/02/16 Pours a devilish red body with a creamy beige head atop. Potent hop aroma - melon, citrus, passionfruit, guava, grass with brown caramel & toasty malts providing a richness. Seriously big from the word go - no doubting this has a high abv - slick texture, oily, chewy, long & substantial with some heat on the finish. Body oozes hop resin - bitter orange, grapefruit, citrus leaf resin, pine sap, guava peel & passionfruit rind - its very full on, with a syrupy sort of toffee malt presence lending extra sweetness amongst a powerful smack of hop bitterness. Huge IPA!

brnandersen (3272) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2016
355 ml bottle from Systembolaget poured in to a Snifter. Bottled in May ’16. Hazy, amber red colour with a thin, off-white head. Fruity aroma with pines, citrus fruits, resins, rich caramel malts and a toasted note. Taste is bitter. Full body with an oily texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes long lasting dry and bitter with heavy pines and caramel malts. Hints of booze. A big, heavy beer. Very American. Maybe even too much of a good thing?

justkoehn (110) - Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2016
Little head and lacing. Rich Amber color. Piney hop aroma. Sits well on the tongue for being 12%. Strong alcohol taste but finishes well. Good big beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
