2013

A: Poured from bottle to tulip, color is a deep hazy copper. Small off white head that dissipates quickly and leave a small amount of lacing.

S: Huge caramel smell up front with an intense combination of citrus, piney, and spicy hop aroma.

T: Follows the nose with a big caramel sweetness up front and a very different hop character in the finish. The alcohol is very well hidden in this despite it being 12%.

M: Full bodied, fairly high carbonation, so so dry finish.

O: A good brew but I really can't justify the price, there are so many amazing IPA's for half the price.

Poured the Devil Dancer into a Tulip.

A - Pours amber color with a thin white head.

S - Some candied qualities, smooth malt, vanilla, orange and light grapefruit. Love the aroma on this one.

T - Bitterness right off the bat, grapefruit, pine needles. The hop monster comes out big time here. It grabs you and squeezes your tongue. Wow, not too bad.

M - Medium carbonation, smooth nice beer with some syrup qualities in there.

O - Not bad shit here, this is another quality brew from Founders. Enjoy! Cheers!!.
