Founders Brewing

announces the return of reDANKulous, an imperial red IPA, as the latest release in its Specialty Series. With a RateBeer score of 99 and back-to-back medals at the Great American Beer Festival in 2015 and 2016 in the Imperial Red Ale category (gold and silver, respectively), reDANKulous has proven it’s a beer that’s made its mark.

The striking red hue and subtle sweetness of reDANKulous are courtesy of the Caramalt and roasted barley, but hops are the true headliner to drive sensory overload. Brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki combines one of his favorite classic hops, Mosaic, with standout newer varieties, Chinook and Simcoe, to create the “dank” texture. The result is a complex balance between malty sweetness and tropical flavor-forward hops. At 90 IBUs and 9.5% ABV, this bold reDANKulous excites the palate in all the right places with a finish that lingers on and on.

“If you’re wondering what dank means in this beer, think lingering sensory overload,” said Co-Founder & President Dave Engbers. “It really says something that this style has become a crowd favorite of judges and hop heads alike. Jeremy and our team of brewers love to experiment with new varieties, combinations and techniques – because of that reDANKulous exudes our ‘brewed for us’ philosophy.”

reDANKulous starts shipping to all 46 states in the Founders distribution network on June 1 with expected availability through September. reDANKulous will have a suggested retail price of $11.99/4-pack, 12oz. bottles. It will also be available on draft.
