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 alphas used to create this monster. More IBUs 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

Self control is harder at times then others. Bottle from Feb. 08. Huge malt on the nose now more then the hops last year. However, considering how many IBUs this guy was brewed with you can still yes still taste the strong hop flavor in there. Pours a beautiful golden brown color with minimal head as I did a slow pour into a chalice to give this guy some extra air. I have noticed though now that the malt is coming out more very nice and the beer is showing more characteristics of a barleywine. Lots of fruit, hops and malt in the flavor as well as the nose. Full and fuller bodied, you can chew this if you want and stays on your palate well a very long time. Not for the faint of heart. This is aging very well and we will see how it does for years to come.

daknole (10961) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 10, 2009
Bottle from beerandT. Pours a cloudy rich amber color with a sticky white head. Tons of lacing. Tons of hops, caramel malt, citrus, and some bready notes. This is quite the unique beer. It is chewy as hell and while its hoppy it also is very malty and fruity. Mouthfeel is amazing. Quite a drinking experience.

Pours a brown amber with small white head. Aroma of complex hops, caramel, and strong malt. First taste is surprisingly sweet, but not overpowering. More taste is of alcohol, pine, and caramel. Definitely a brew I a going to have to try again.

Bottle. Poured a dark/ muddy amber color with small white head. Aroma of lots of malt, pine, hops, caramel, and fairly sweet. Very candy sugar like, with pine, citrus, bread, and strong alcohol. Sticky thick mouth feel and long lasting taste. The first Triple IPA and enjoyed...

At the Indiana Microbrewers Festival my buddy and I got the first two glasses! Hoppy, touch of sweet, very fragrant. A very deep beer.

Bottle. Dark amber color with a thin foamy white head that quickly diminishies to a thin film that leaves pretty good lacing.Huge aroma of pine,and floral hops along with big sweet malty caramel notes,a little musty,maybe some bread. Intense flavors of very sugary sweet pine resin,brown sugar,orange zest,peaches,wood,very complex,very barly wine like in aroma flavor and mouthfeel, very little carbonation,and slightly sticky. VERY GOOD !

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Hazy orange, real small white head thats gone quickly. Nose is very sugary, orange, minor citrus, slight alcohol. Way too sweet. Flavor is again citric, loads of alcohol, sugars abounding and malt thrown in for kicks. Thick palate, slight salt. Odd malt notes in the finish, chalky and slight bread. I get no fresh hop here until the very end, and unfortunately, continue to be unimpressed by Founders.
