4.5/5  rDev +6.6%

Poured into a snifter.

A: Hazy deep golden yellow with one-finger, white, foamy head that lasted a couple of minutes. Nice lacing.

S: Hops, pine and citrus. Sweet caramel malt.

T: Moderate sweetness and solid hop bitterness. The bitterness is up front and the sweet malt follows. Matches the nose. Very good.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Slightly dry.

O: This is a really good Double. I was surprised to see 9.4% ABV - I couldn't tell.

4.5/5  rDev +6.6%

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!
