I don't know why I keep buying these founder's special beers. CBS was ok but impossible to get a bottle of, the rest were easy enough to get but ranged from maybe with age (bolt cutter) to just plain awful (all the rest). Add in I'm not sure an IPA aged in a barrel has ever been even ok and again why I spent 15 dollars on this is beyond me. Still....founders does make a lot of good beers so maybe this one won't be awful.
L. Very light colored orange, almost clearly lager like when pouring from the bottle. A decent white cap but large bubbles so I don't expect them to last too long.
S. Hops and vanilla, really interesting mix. They have managed to just get the vanilla notes to really showcase over too much oak which can sour and turn hops away. Not that those elements aren't here but they are subtle and in the back ground like they should be.
T. Wow this is freaking great. Wonderful citrus ruby grapefruit and orange peels sweetened with vanilla and bourbon goodness. Rock candy meets some kind of sugary hop infused goodness. This is freaking amazing.
M. Thick and sugary like all the founders special releases but very well carbonated which gives it a light and drinkable element that has been missing in many of their past releases.
O. This is desert you'll be dreaming about. Perhaps not a perfect beer but this stuff is just amazing and worth honestly fighting over bottles. One of the best beers I've had this year and I regret not buying a second bottle. The beers been our a few days if not a week and they still had 7 more bottles in the store so I'd not even feel guilty for buying more!.
