3.5/5  rDev -10.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle dated 6/1/12 although not supposed to be released until July. Poured into Jackie O's snifter.

A- Pours a cherry red amber, pretty much no head, some carbonation but not much.

S- Hops, spices, some light bready malt, booze, and citrus notes in the background.

T- Bready malts, Hops, a little bit of sweet caramel, light citrus, some oranges, surrounded by the presence of booze. Definitely on the bitter side, can taste the 112 IBU.

M- Medium bodied, about average carbonation, for 12% abv not much alcoholic burn, can detect it but not too much.

O- Kind of disappointed in this one. Usually I'm a big fan of Founders, which is why I felt like I had to try this one. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't that great. For 12% it was decently well hidden, but the flavor wasn't anything much above average- mainly bready malts, bitter hops, and a bit of caramel. For $6.40/12-ounce bottle it definitely wasn't worth it. Glad I only bought one. Double Trouble was significantly better.

3.84/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to nothing quickly. It is an amber copper color with good clarity and vision of slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Floral, grassy, pungent, citrus, onion, garlic, booze, and caramel.

Taste: Same as above. Burning tingly boozy sensation going down. Even after warming up, it's still the same.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, low carbonation, tingly bitterness, and real boozy. It's definitely a sipper.

Overall: It's been a while, but still tasty. Should have held on to this one a bit longer.
