Founders Devil Dancer Triple IPA Beer Review

Article by FisterRoboto of lefthandhorror.com

Brewed by Founders Brewing Company

$24.99/Four Pack

Style: American Double/Imperial IPA

12.30% ABV

Serve at 50-5 Degrees

Dry-hopped for twenty-six days straight with a combination of 10 hop varieties.
112 actual IBU; although it calculates to over 200!

Enjoyed from a tulip glass.

A: Orange/copper color with a small amount of off-white head, continuous carbonation trails.

S: So pungent. Flowery, piney hops assault your senses. Sweet malt notes with some toffee and even some leather in the mix. A hint of alcohol mixes well.

T: Very bitter and powerful as expected. That gives way to more of a citrusy, clean note, and finishes with a great mix of sweet malts and intense hops. What a powerhouse of a flavor. This is not your common DIPA.

M: Thick and syrupy, but creamy and heavy-bodied. Founders nailed it.

O: $25 a four pack is going to separate the trendy beer drinkers from the serious hopheads fast. I’ve heard so many randoms at the liquor store balk at this price. That’s great for me – more Devil Dancer for my fridge. This triple IPA is amazing, but it is a sipper reserved for special times. I couldn’t quaff these suckers. Give it a try – just be ready.

    looks great

  2. Is triple IPA even a recognized style? It’s single defining characteristic seems to be its righteous indignation begotten by you thinking you’re worth its time Haha. I’ll look for it.
