IPA Day – Founders Devil Dancer Triple IPA

founders_devil_dancer_triple_ipa

What better beer for a bonus IPA Day review?  Founders Brewing Company calls Devil Dancer a Triple IPA, and justifies the labels by endowing it with a monstrous 112 IBUs, and indeed, it is massively bitter.  Heavy pine resin and sweet sticky citrus in the nose.   The middle is a hop bomb, pine and lemon and grapefruit rind dominate, with some caramel malt in the background   More pine and citrus and some alcohol in the finish.  This is another huge beer at 12% ABV, and it’s got a heavy body to match.    It’s not exactly a one trick pony in that they’ve tried to malt it up to handle the insane level of hops, but I have to say, for a beer of the “lets add hops until their taste buds start blowing fuses” variety, I really like this beer a lot.

I give it a 4.2 out of 5.
