12 oz. bottle poured into a Founders Brewing Company snifter
Pours dark gold with orange hues, bright white one and a half finger head, great retention, considerable lacing. Strong aroma of citrus, flora, and piney hops. Initially dry grapefruit dominates shifts to a touch of marginally sweet malt finishes dry with piney hop bitterness. Slick and satisfying, medium to heavy body thanks to a more than adequate malt backbone. Double Trouble has all the attributes of what I look for in an IIPA, noticeable bitterness, floral and citrus notes, controlled tones of sweetness, plenty of body and a pleasant dry finish. Belongs in the top tier of the style.

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!
