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

tlind2 (1636) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy amber color, off-white head. Appealing hoppy aroma with complex sugary notes, reminiscent of barley wine. Heavily hoppy flavor with burnt sugar, aniseed. Creamy mouthfeel. Very full body, medium carbonation. A big beer that's certainly worth a look, but maybe not a personal favorite.

Flavor: moderately-high bitterness, but less than expected, and more sweet malts. some complexity. A bit boozy Overall: a malty triple IPA

superspak (5103) - Michigan, USA - OCT 15, 2016
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/2/2016. Pours fairly hazy ruby red/light orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, lemon/orange peel, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light toffee, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/pine hops and dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light toffee, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Large amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, lemon/orange rind, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops and dark/bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, creamy/bready, and lightly slick balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an excellent huge DIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops and dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to sip on for the huge ABV, and despite aggressive bitterness. A very enjoyable offering.

Booga (111) - Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2016
I really like this one. This bottle aged about 2 months. A little less bite in the taste. Great bitter hoppy flavor but some malt backbone behind it. Deep red Amber color with 2 finger head. Drinks pretty smooth for a 12%. A real knockout beer if you dont watch it and just have one.
