Founders reDANKulous Imperial Red IPA, once the 13th offering in the brewery’s “Backstage Series”, returns in mid-June.
The imperial IPA is billed as a “no-frills” offering, hopped with Chinook, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops. Just calling it “hoppy” is an understatement.
It pours a pleasing burnt amber with some sweetness due to the Caramalt and roasted barley used in the malt bill. But hops are the true headliner in this elaborate sensory experience. The spicy, piney, tropical complexities of Chinook, Mosaic and Simcoe hops hit you right away with their dank aroma—and they stick around.
Founders reDANKulous Imperial Red IPA was bottled again the last week of May. Look for it across the brewery’s distribution footprint in June, in 12 ounce bottles and draft.
