Devil Dancer Triple IPA ~ Founders

Appearance: superbly clear ambers and garnets polished to perfection. Coppery head lingers clumpy and bubbly along with delicate lace. Swirls foamy and bubbly with broken clumps of lace.

Nose: sticky, sappy, sweet, and crunchy with orange skins in the back. Honeycomb crunch with sweetness underneath while orange oils mix. Sticky hop resins and pine sap.

Palate: full of sap, resins, pine, and orange oils with lingering bitterness of the skins in the back. Mouth coating. Orange oils on top, honeycomb underneath. Grab handful of pine and whole hop cones, squeeze, and partake of the fresh nectar. Bitter bite of pine tree bark under and in the back; brief and cleansing. Orange skins linger long on the back center of tongue.

Final Thoughts: a bit one-dimensional in the best triple hopped way possible. Flavors were big and clean and balanced which in and of itself is a brewer’s feat of skill. Delicious!
