Details

‘Why is the rum always gone’, most likely because Founders have commandeered all the rum barrels to age their barrel aged double IPA. Enjoy what at its core is a rum based cocktail with a DIPA mixer, The mosaic hops give a crisp bitterness with a mix of orange zest, I mean you have to have fruit with your rum cocktail. While the sweet spiced rum comes in for swift right hook at the end.. but in a pleasing way, this is definitely one to sip in the sun with little umbrella in your glass.

Brewery Info

Originally brewing middle-of-the-road beers for a wide and not-terribly-engaged audience, Founders realised that they’d have to change if they wanted to survive. They started making bold and complex beers instead, launching themselves to craft beer fame.

From coffee-infused Breakfast Stout, bourbon barrel-aged Backwoods Bastard and a 15% barleywine called Bolt Cutter, you can’t accuse Founders of being dull. As well as brews that push the boundaries, their lower abv. range is a more accessible introduction and includes the excellent All Day IPA.

Pretty complex taste with Rum (unsurprisingly) undertones, doesn’t taste anywhere near as strong as it is. If I wasn’t biased by some of the other beers Founders brew then this might have been a 5 but will have to settle for 4. That’s not to say I can find any real fault with this and if you match it with the right food then it will have your taste buds dancing.
Doesn't get much better!
