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!

Tasted July 25th 2011 (from review)
Poured into a la Chouffe tulip
A - pale straw, half finger white head and some lacing
S - very sweet, tons of citrus, lots of tropical fruits and flowers, very sweet, lots of malt, slight pungent yeast and all around awesomeness
T - super hoppy, lots of sugar, tons of fruit, grass, yeast, wheat, nice sweet malt, boozey but not to boozey, very slight MJ note. Very simple but tons of flavor
M - Full bodied, excellent balance, simple complexity, medium acidity and a very nice almost perfect hop, malt and sugary booze finish
D/O - This is the kind of beer that makes me want all beers to be readily available all over the America's! One of the better DIPA's I have had and most definitely makes founders worth the "hype"
Final Thoughts - at 9+ ABV this beer kicks it into gear and is one of the better DIPA's. Still, not being easy to obtain, make this beer obnoxiously awesome!
