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

Outstanding! Lots of complexity throughout. Just buy it if you can find it.

Shark_Pants (649) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 3, 2016
355ml bottle, bottled 02 May 16. Slighty hazy red amber with small yellowish head. Big tropical fruity hop aromas, caramel, some booze evident. The taste is certainly not subtle - a sledgehammer of grapefruit, pine, pineapple, apricot hoppiness, huge caramel and toasted bread maltiness, heady alcohol, long grassy bitterness. Fairly full bodied, relatively moderate carbonation. A titan of a beer in just about every way, but masterfully balanced. Simply fantastic.

Cerveza servida en Olut (Sabadell) en botella, muy sabrosa y presente, aunque, personalmente, le sobra graduación.

Tognetta (784) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - NOV 27, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2016 Âmbar avermelhada de pouquíssima turbidez quase translúcida, espuma avermelhada de otima formação e persistência. Aroma adocicado, malte, morangos, xarope, álcool mais perceptível com o tempo de copo. Paladar de dulçor intenso e médio amargor. Corpo licoroso, média carbonatação. Final de média/longa persistência tem um misto de amargor lupulado com dulçor bem equilibrado, lembra a caramelo torrado mais com toque frutado de morango, deliciosa!

12oz bottle - pours a slightly murky amber orangey color with a med off white head. Massive aroma of fruit (mango, peach, melon, pineapple and grapefruit) and sweet caramel. Flavors of intense malt and gigantic hops meld to make this monster. A little boozy with a long bittersweet aftertaste. Whoa

blueshockey24 (492) - Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Bottle. Pours reddish amber with tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is sweet malty hops with a hoppy piney finish. Pretty good but a little to much malt for my personal preference.

saltyseadog (53) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - NOV 19, 2016
12oz bottle from Windsor Hy-Vee, in a Sam Smith pint glass. Scent of apricot, white grape, pineapple, wet grass and buttery biscuits. Traditional hop pineyness is in there too, but faint. Pours red amber with a finger of creamy tan head with nice retention and lacing. Clarity is nice with plenty of carbonation bubbling up from the bottom of the glass making for a very inviting looking beer. Opens rich and malty with a definite buttery quality restrained by big hoppy bitterness that lets you know this one isn’t fooling around. Malt and hop flavors continue to assert themselves powerfully against eachothers influence though mid-palate and into the long finish, with fleeting suggestions of pineapple here and there and just the slightest hint of an alcoholic kick at the end, concealing that 12% ABV really well. Mouthfeel is surprisingly heavy, solidly medium- approaching full-bodied territory with its unique conbination of maltiness and IBUs. Astringent in the usual manner of hoppy beers. A rock solid Imperial IPA. Flavor profile is simple and straightforward but well chosen and expertly balanced making for a strong but satisfying drinking experience, even for timid IPA drinkers like myself. Founders really knows how to make a beer. Cheers!
