Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a DFH modified Tulip.
Pours a hazy copper/orange with about an inch of white foam.
The nose is the first indication that this is a solid brew, sweet citrus with a strong hop presence...by now my mouth is watering...time to drink!
Double Trouble absolutely showcases what I love about Double IPAs , strong bold flavor! I get notes of pineapple , grapefruit and oranges, layered with a perfect balance of hop bitterness. The 9.4 abv is hidden well.
Mouthfeel is perfect carbonation, a juicy resinous feel with the finish of dry bitterness, as if you licked an aspirin.(sounds weird, but best description I could think of...I like it!)
Overall, this is easily one of my favorite beers. The 2013 release blew previous years away in my opinion. Up beside over DIPAs, DT stands strong! I'm thinking that 9.4 abv is the magic number, I like this as much as Stone's Enjoy by and Great lakes Alchemy hour...both also 9.4.
Hats off to Founders, great brew!

served from bottle, slightly over a month old.
pours a hazy straw-yellow. small rocky head that dissipates and clings to side of glass.
smells of pungent hops, cannabis, pine, and tropical notes with citrus (this beer is brewed with Summit, Simcoe and Amarillo hops)
front of the tongue has a big wallop of bitterness that quickly transitions to a pungent, dank taste - the sort of typical Simcoe taste. follows with a nice sweetness, citrus and tropical notes, slightly sugary. really well balanced!
overall, this is a great DIPA. great representation of the style, and this brew is incredibly balanced between pungent bitterness and sweeter notes.
