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

What a complex and fantastic beer. Strong caramel sweetness upfront followed by massive hops that balance out perfectly. Im usually not a huge hops lover but this is so well balanced it works. Strong bitter and boozy aftertaste. Great, but in small amounts, can be overpowering after a while!

Cloudy copper pour with a small off white head. Loads of pine, citrus, pineapple... all cranked up to an intense level. Thick, chewy caramel malts. Massive lingering bitter finish... a bit too bitter for my tastes to be honest.

BlazerT (839) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Perfectly balanced heavy malty character (mainly based on caramel) with strong hoppy profile. Highly drinkable, ABV is perfectly hidden. Hoppy aroma are moderately piney and citrus (oranges). In overall very chewy, oily, sweet and hoppy bastard. Very good brew.

Got this sampler bottle some time back and well it got pushed back and forgotten. Today I was going through my beer fridge and found it. Being 12% it should still be good after sitting for 8 months. Amber with small head that lingers. At first smell it was pine but then more citrus followed by fruit and many other aromas. Taste was a blast of hops followed by the alcohol. Really tried to pick out the malt but it was just too hidden. Seriously interesting IPA and this summer hope to get more than just one and have it while it is summer. Might be even better only a month or two old rather than eight.

Keg @El Coleccionista, Gijn. 15-01-2017.
In short: rough bitter ale.
Pours quite hazy amber with nice off white head. Moderate head retention, good lacing. Ripe fruit, caramel, roasty nose. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is quite bitter, still some alcohol sweetness. Quite robust, a bit excesive and palate saturating.

Tide (3331) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2017
Bottle from Alko. Dark amber color, white head. Bitter taste with grapefruit, caramel, hops, resin, pine, a bit of mango and grass. Bitter finish with grapefruit, caramel, hops, resin and pine. Very nice brew, but a bit too over the top for me.
