Poured into a Perfect Pint glass

A: Amber, opaque. A tan two finger head that lingers. Super thick lacing.

S: Tropical fruits. Mangoes, peaches. Malts and some scotch, too.

T: Sip and be awed. So smooth. Grapefruit prevails with a scotch burn. Low bitterness. Sip this one slowly. The 12% will take your head off and not apologize.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: Zowee! Glad I got to try this highly touted brew. At nearly $5 for a 12 oz. bottle, it needs to be shared with friends.

Founders Devil Dancer Triple IPA has a thin, off-white head, a hazy, yet brilliant, rust-orange appearance with some lacing left on the glass. The aroma is strong and impressive- sweet malt, fruity (apricot) hops, and bread crust. Taste is of those elements, with some not particularly strong bitterness and some noticeable alcohol pickup. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, and there is some underlying chalk on the tongue. Founders Devil Dancer finishes semi-wet, boozy, and fairly harsh.
