BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Founders Brewing Company
Michigan, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.40%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Previously known as Hand of Doom.

Doom may be impending but that doesn't mean you have to fear it. A collision of worlds, the intense hop character of our Imperial IPA mingles with the warm vanilla and oak notes imparted from the time spent in our favorite bourbon barrels. Like all good things, Doom comes to those who wait.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

a: light copper. white, frothy head (1.5 fingers). modest lacing

s: heavy bourbon notes. vanilla. slight citrus hops in the background (mango/grapefruit primarily)

t: starts off with citrus hops (mango.grapefruit) but quickly bourbon and vanilla take over through the finish. some sweet malts at the end as well

m: thick & creamy. Low carbonation. Gets a bit syrupy as it warms.

o: Didn't quite know what to expect of this. Enjoyed it more than I thought I would going in. The IPA was overpowered by the barrel aging but was able to retain some of its characteristics. Nothing outstanding but definitely worth a try.
