OK, here we go, the vaunted Devil Dancer. Triple IPA, eh? Whatever you wanna call it Founders just please make some more for NoVa next year. Please. Pours a rich amber tone with a tight, sexy little lacing on top. Oozing out of the glass are rich, resinous, sharp, earthy, DELICIOUS hops. Not much fruit here, just love juice from the gorgeous little cones. I salivate for a sip of this beauty. And sip I do. Sip, sip, sip. Yum, yum, yum. Despite the foolhardy amount of aggressive hops brimming over in this brew, the substantial malt fights tooth and nail to establish a sliver of balance. Immense flavors going on here. West Coast barley wine springs to mind, but no, that isn't quite right. Because barley wine doesn't do this thing justice. Maybe if I had the patience to sit on one of these for a year or two...but nahh. I am drinking my last one tonight, an noble sacrifice to add my review for us BAs. It has an almost creamy finish, once again further testament to this things abnormal balance. Founders, a second askance. Could you do this beer in Magnums for the holidays? Talk about love on a cold winter's eve. Alright, now I am just rambling loose compliments. But you deserve it Devil Dancer. Keep on shakin' your money maker. Cheers.

4.11/5 rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Bottled 5/24/13 at 45 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma – very deep pine/hemlock aroma
Head large (6.5cm), frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing to a 2 mm layer
Body clear, more amber than orange
Flavor begins with a thick sweet piney taste, very resinous, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate is medium, oily to syrupy, with a light bitter finish
I realize this beer is technically past its prime, but has aged well, becoming a very smooth flavorable ale. I’ll be buying more to cellar.
