Founders Brewing Company- Devil Dancer Triple IPA: The first sip is free…

Devil Dancer is a beer I have wanted to review for a very long time and is another hook up from my boy Ryan in Michigan. This beastly brew rocks an earth shattering 112 IBU’s and a mammoth 12% ABV. I guess when a beer costs $20 a four-pack it better  tempt you down the path to the underworld. I may just be heading to confessional after this one…

Founders Brewing Company's Devil Dancer pours like hell fire itself with a glowing crimson visage that is one part ruby and two parts mahogany. The aroma is sweet with hints of malt and alcohol, piney hops and, oddly enough, just a hint of yeasty sulfur. This beer is pretty close to flat and is a little syrupy with a razor thin eggshell head. Devil Dancer is a pretty little temptress but there is more than one indicator that this could me a demon in disguise.

My first sip literally made me go crossed eyed because the flavor is so overwhelmingly dense and robust. Devil Dancer reminded me of the bifurcated tongue of Beelzebub himself. The initial feel is sweet and warm which is quickly circumvented by an oily hop blast mixed with alcohol. The finish is dry and roasted much like the pits of hell, but in a good way. Founder’s has something incredible here. Leave it to my boys in Michigan to bottle a stab in the mouth from Satan’s pitchfork. I am not sure how many men had to sell their souls to Lucifer to get this recipe but it was worth it. Are you ready for your dance with the Devil in the pale moon light?  

ABV: 12%

IBU: 112

Verdict: Buy a Keg!

Founders Brewing Company- Devil Dancer: Guest reviewer Ryan dances, then does other weird stuff, with the devil in the pale moonlight! 

So as you know, the Brew Crew here loves their IPA’s. Wes especially loves a beer with IBU’s that will kill a man’s sense of taste for days. A few weeks ago I found a new limited released Founder’s brew called Devil Dancer.  They classify this beer as a triple IPA coming in at a huge 12% ABV and 112 IBU’s.  So in other words, prepare to have your taste buds and mouth rampaged by the Chuck Norris of IPAs.

Devil Dancer poured with a limited white head and a beautiful mahogany/amber color. The first thing I smell is the delectable scent of hops and slight hint of alcohol. The taste is a strong hop bite with a piney hint and some spice notes. The mouth feel is aggressive and you get the after taste of alcohol but not in a bad shot of cheap Mohawk Vodka type of way. It definitely is everything a great IPA should be only multiplied and blown up in ways I never thought imaginable.

Overall this is a great IPA. If you are a fan of IPA’s find it and let it give your mouth a Stone Cold IPA Stunner. However, if you are new to IPA’s or they aren’t your cup of tea you should think twice. It is costly, averaging around $20 a four pack here in Michigan, but worth every penny.

ABV: 12%

Consumed: Pint Glass

Verdict: Buy a case (I would say a keg but a case of this at 12% will last you awhile anyway)
