In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Founders Sleeper Cell

Aroma: “Big honeydew-melon notes. Light tropical perfume, moderate crystal malt, and noticeable alcohol.”

Flavor: “Spicy alcohol notes actually work well here to blend with the rosy hops flavor. Bitterness is moderate but not overpowering. Smooth with the melon flavor dominating the profile.”

Overall: “It borders on blonde barleywine territory, but this beer is one that might cause me to leave my car at the brewery after enjoying more than I planned—it’s that smooth and drinkable. If this beer were getting its annual review in corporate America, it would get ‘Exceeds Expectations.’”
