Founders | Centennial IPA | 7.2% ABV
Bottled 2/22/2012 Smells great, very floral. Bitter, dank and a little sweet. Wasn’t the freshest IPA, but still pretty solid. Founders has so many other better beers though. Reminded me of Sierra Nevada Torpedo - yeah probably different hops or something, go ahead write and complain that I can’t tell the difference.
Founders Brewing | Dry Hopped Pale Ale | 5.4% ABV
Another delicious release from Founders Brewing. If you like hops, then this is for you. Bitter citrus like a mother fucker. This come from dry hopping (hence the name). Dry hopping happens after the initial boil, during fermentation, and enhances aroma of the beer. For more on dry hopping, fucking google it!
Founders Brewing | Old Curmudgeon Ale | 9.8% ABV
The old curmudgeon is back! It’s an old english ale. It’s called that because the ingredients come from england and it is brewed in the english style. Anymore than that, go google it. I just assume it’s called an old english ale because it’s as bland as the food, weather, and scenery in that country. That’s not to say it’s not delicious…like england…it’s just not for everyone. This is probably the best old english ale I’ve ever had. It’s fruitier than a normal english ale and finishes with a strong booze taste and feel in the chest. Very awesome. If you can get you hands on a four pack of this, do so.
Founder’s Brewing | KBS | 11.2% ABV
Taken strait from the website:
“What we’ve got here is an imperial stout brewed with a massive amount of coffee and chocolates, then cave-aged in oak bourbon barrels for an entire year to make sure wonderful bourbon undertones come through in the finish.”
Yes, it is every bit as delicious as it sounds. I stood in line for 10 hours in 20 degree weather for the opportunity to buy 12 12oz bottles. At the time, we thought we were getting a whole case but so many people showed up that they cut our allotment in half. I may have told the owner to go fuck himself. Shit happens. I still got my beers. Don’t pass up an opportunity get your hands on this once a year brewed beer.
