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

A powerful, pungent brew. Lots of malt here, but immense hops to balance it. One of the most overwhelming beers I’ve had, but so good. Sticky, but the hops really win the battle here. Just an amazing beer, but make sure to sip and savor.

BOTTLE. (BO05/02/16). Gold to red pour with big fluffy off white head.. Malt dominant nose, yet faint floral hops.. Heavy Malt upfront, with the ibu really peeking in the middle, finishes with warmth, sappy malt & piney hops.. Sourced Cape cellars

CraftBeerNick (1920) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2016
Bottle at home, 25th September 16. Pours dark Amber. Aroma is citrus, pine, fruit. Taste is very bitter, lots of pith, marmalade, some sweetness, more lingering bitterness. Very well made and well balanced.

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 (2100) - 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

maltman53 (465) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Bottle pours nearly mahogany color with a persistent tan lacy head. Huge root vegetable aroma with dank hops. Full-bodied balanced taste with dirty hops popping through. This 12% monster tastes more like an imperial scotch ale than a triple IPA. Overall, very well balanced considering its ABV and if you like heavy scotch ales this will probably delight you. If you’re looking for more of the Russian River triple ale style it will delight you less so.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2016
Bottled. Copper colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, some fruits, mild toffee and resiny notes with mild sweet alcohol as well. Flavour is quite strong on the floral and fruity bitterness, but also has some sweet malts, mild alcohol as well as some nutty and slight spicy notes to it as well. Big brew, but still very balanced.
