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

Big hop bouquet. Funny the malt comes throigh first turning from that to medium biterness back to a good malt with a lingering hop oil on the bottom of the tongue. Finishes like the aggressively hopped bw’s ie: bigfoot, hog heaven. Overall a nice Double ipa. I don’t think i could consider this a triple ipa though.

Pours ruby amber with a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of candied citrus, dank hops, caramel sweet malts, dried fruits, pine neddles, ligjht toffee, and some light booze. Taste is candied citrus, sugar coated pine neddles, sweet malts, caramel, toffee, bready malts, and booze. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, pretty bitter, yet still somewhat balanced by sweet malts, long lingering, semi boozy, warming finish. Overall, a pretty tasty beer that almost seems more like a american strong ale to me and maybe a tad too boozy, and overpriced for what it is.

ilovedarkbeer (2436) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Pours a deep amber color with a foamy canvas colored head. Nice sticky mouthfeel with a long finish and not too much heat. Notes of candied apricots, brown sugar, pine, flowers, and brine.

Draft. Color is a ruby amber with a small head. The aroma is floral and a hint of citrus. The taste is strong alcohol, stone fruit, pine, caramel and general malt sweetness.

zeke626 (447) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle, dark amber body with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, sugars, floral and piney hops, and a hint of citrus. Taste is all malts/sugars upfront and then hop bitterness. Long bitter hop finish.

scotchzombie (418) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Clear amber with a huge foamy tan white head that hangs with you. Aroma is intense and wonderful caramel malts and dank resin. Taste is... whoa. An onslaught that hits you right away. Very upfront. Booze, bitterness and a caramel malty bed. Very tangy and active on the tongue. Some pine resin and slight citrus and hops. This beer has a bite and is not to be taken lightly.

BenDover (216) - Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Pours a deep amber, with a half inch of very dense off-white foam. Aroma is floral and piney with a bit of citrus fruit. Taste is like a highly hopped barleywine -- lots of flavors going on here -- malty sweetness, orange and grapefruit, hops and hops and more hops. Somewhat oily going down, in a good way. Did I mention the hops?

MarkSachon (732) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2015
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.

markducommun (371) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2015
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 (86) - 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. ????
