12oz bottled 4/6/13 served in a tumbler glass. It pours a nice clear gold body with a chunky white head. Double Trouble smells of big juicy hops, resinous pine, light caramel malt, and a touch of booze.

It starts with pungent hop flavor of grapefruit, citrus, lemon, some malt, and finishes with bitter pine flavor in my mouth. It's not overly bittersweet and not too resinous. Lots of juicy fruit flavor to be had in this one. It has a nice medium mouthfeel that drinks easy but is lethal.

It reminds me a lot of HopSlam and turns my world upside down / :

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Enticing light golden honey color with a finger of bone white head. Very admirable lacing.

S: As soon as your nose gets even slightly close to the glass you get a humungous burst of tropical fruits: mango, pineapple, papaya. Smells like heaven to me!

T: Juicy hops lathered in tropical fruit flavors. Taste is pretty similar to the nose. Finish is slightly malty, but not overpowering. Not cloyingly sweet like some DIPAs.

M: Just the right amount of bitterness. Amazingly refreshing finish.

O: This is one of the best DIPAs I've ever had. Founder's never disappoints!

12oz bottle (bottled 12/8/10) poured into a tulip/snifter.

A: Pours hazy gold, 1.5 finger white beautiful fluffy head that sticks around for a while and leaves a ton of lacing.

S: Heavenly! I can smell tons of apricot, tangerine, mango, and other citrus from FEET away!

T: Wow this is juicy. Tropical citrus is absolutely bursting out. The main trio of flavors seems to be the apricot, tangerine, and mango with some grapefruit/pine bitterness in the background and a little lemon. Malt character is fairly strong and caramel sweet, but compliments the juicy hops just about perfectly. Alcohol is fairly well hidden, it's just a little spicy and has a nice sharp warming finish. This isn't as bitter as I was expecting, especially on the finish, but I'd bet the 2 months has muted the bitterness to an extent. I've heard that this is quite similar to Sculpin in taste and I concur. Delicious!

M: Light to medium carbonation, body is pretty thick and viscous for the style. Extremely chewy and sticky, coating the entire mouth. Really smooth. Only improvement would be more bitterness, though fresh might just do it.

D: 9.4% ABV is nothing to sneeze at, but the alcohol is well integrated and it's too delicious to keep the beer out of my hands. Sculpin so far is my favorite IPA, with Double Trouble I think I've found my favorite DIPA.
