Founders Devil Dancer

On the label it says “a triple IPA! WTF?? I dunno, more marketing crap that we have to put up with. 12oz bottle into the Youngs 20oz glass. Thanks go out to Vancer as a part of CEO/Old Farts BIF.
13% ABV – Jeez…
Pour is dark orange with a very thin head and no lace. Not that surprising considering the ABV. Sweet nose and hop based (imagine that!)
Pretty viscous mouthfeel (that is not exactly surprising given the ABV), but a drinkable combination of big hops and big sweetness.
This JUST pulls the combonation off – it’s a close call, but considering the combination of bitterness and alcohol this remains an amazingly drinkable beer. I don’t think I would want more than one, but at the same time when you consider the whole package, I’m delighted that I CAN manage even one!
Huge hops, equally large sweetness this is a beer that could ONLY be brewed in the USA. In some ways it’s totally insane, but it still manages to stay (just, just, just) in the realms of drinkability. This one walks a very fine line, I bet some (non-American especially) BA’s will hate it!
Odd.
