I picked this up in a growler at the newly finished Founders Brewery downtown. That place looks amazing and I have to pinch myself that I live in the backyard of such a world class brewery.

A - Pours a deep burnt orange with good clarity and huge silky smooth head. Nice retention and foamy lacing with every drink.

S - Grapefruit, citrus, piney, hop resin, caramel, malt.

T - Lip smacking citrus hops, piney, nicely balanced with malts and caramel undertones. Really smooth mouthfeel for a DIPA and easy to drink.

O - This is one of the top DIPAs out their and I would put it up against any of the top dawgs. Fits my flavor preference for a DIPA - huge citrus notes and nicely balanced with some caramel malts. This is a must have.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

From tap into Growler poured in tulip shaped glass

Appearance: Golden hue yellow, slightly hazy, amber with a thin white head that dissipated very quickly.

Smell: Strong tropical fruit presence with a nice hoppy blend. Plums, grape fruit flavors, peach, mango, and earthy simcoe hops presence.

Taste: bittery on the front end from the explosive hop presence, and a nice sweetness on the back end from the peaches, mango, and tropical fruits. Very earthy, and biter sweet. I can't taste the alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body and moderate carbonation with a dry finish.

Overall: This is a great Imperial Double IPA. It is one of my favorite DIPA. It is very well balanced. I like it better than Ruination.

Picked up at the Founder's event at Beer City, North Babylon NY

A - Orange pour with a white foam 1/2" high. Lacing is in tiny rings on the glass. Cloudy look and slight carbonation.

S - Strong citrus notes (orange, grapefruit) that give a tart smell. Citra and Centennial hops give off a pungent scent of resin that almost smells like tobacco.

T - A nice tart citrus flavor in the initial sip. Orange flavor and some tangerine is noted. Citra hop resin gives additional grapefruit notes. The bitterness in the finish is not overly dominant. Actually a well blended DIPA.

M - Leaves a bitter trace on the palate and has some raspy feel, but for the style this is about as smooth as it gets.

O - I could throw back a few of these. Price point is reasonable and this is a tasty IPA for the hopheads. I enjoyed this with BBQ babybacks, and some grilled meat with a dry rub seems to be the way to go,

From Al's. Kegged two weeks ago.

A: The double IPA is a bright golden amber color, very clear radiant even. A finger of white head leaves strands of lace behind, attempting to layer around the far side of the glass.

S: Citrus and pine come together in a tropical lushness. Very rich and strong, these hops have grapefruit, pine and orange zest driving them. A biscuity underbelly, not much of an attention-seeker, provides light breadiness in contrast to the hops.

T: Very big. The hops are at the forefront of each sip and never release their grip. They bring citrusy grapefruit, resins, and tropically lush fruits to the table. The flavors bring the booze, unavoidable I think, but I just powered through. The lightness, biscuity breads, do a great job of keeping the body from getting too heavy. The result is a very enjoyable drink, albeit one that one must limit to, well, one.

M: Abundant tropical fruits, the tingly bitterness, the hoppy goodness. The other night, I tried this beer blended with KBS. Sounds incredible and doesn't taste half bad. A good IPA from Founders.

So I just finished off a growler (64oz) of this beautifully concocted beer. What appeared to be almost a blonde, was full of great aroma, robust floral taste with large hoppy greatness, and a very sweet finish. Looking forward to enjoying this tasty treat in the future.

$9.99 for a 32oz growler @aleyeah. Purchased 3/4/12, same day as tapped. Poured into a pint glass.

a- a deep and golden orange color with lots of little bubbles rising to the top. a little over 1/4" of white head with lacing that covers the top portion of the glass.

s- pungent, pungent hops that come at my nose like fumes. grapefruit, more citrus, slight caramel and very small amount of booze

t- that grapefruit and hops is present from the get-go. i feel some of the citrus all the way up my nose. very bitter and biting at first but mellows out to the caramel/sweetness from the malt. leaves a little aftertaste of spices and dryness on the tongue.

m- medium carbonation, not as thick as i remember from my review of the bottle version, but still a full bodied DIPA and still velvety. Alcohol presence is not detectable.

o- i paid roughly the same price for this 32oz growler as i did for a 4pack of 12 oz. The difference was 16 oz. Considering double trouble is long gone, i didn't mind at all. The beer was fresher and just as delicious as i remembered.

Poured into a large tulip glass, it1pours from my growler a golden amber color. Quite hazy peering through it, 1cm head forms on top that eventually dissipates to a thin white surface with some cling to the glass.

Lots of cascade hops aroma slams my nose. This is a complete HOP BOMB! Some citrus scents come through as well (orange peel) but mostly a big, floral & mistletoe aroma comes through.

A bit hot on the tongue, the hops are apparent with a big chunk of pine and floral flavors! Wow! Just as with the nose, this is a hop bomb! Not very sweet, except a bit of the alcohol and citrus flavors come through w/ some slight rock candy to balance it on the swallow.

Great feel! No real burn from the alcohol, and it's hidden quite well. Medium to full body.

Overall experience is great! Nothing I can say about this that I don't like. Will be difficult to drink for hte next few hours as I watch the Ravens/Patriots in the AFC Championship game, but I will do my best! Cheers!!!!

Bought a 64OZ Growler from Cicero's Italian Restaurant in the Loop (St. Louis), MO for $17.50. Poured from the Growler into a 16oz HotShots Pint Glass and enjoyed 1 day after purchasing from Cicero's.

Aroma- Has a strong citrus and hop aroma from the beginning. Above average and finishes with a piney note. Very powerful!

Appearance- Pours a 3 finger head that stays for a good amount of time. Has a medium orange/copper colored body with a bit of haziness. Leaves great lacing behind.

Flavor- Has a strong citrus hop taste and light grapefruit in here. Medium-High bitterness and very strong attributes! Seems almost dry hopped from the tasting but either way, fresh and enjoyable!

Mouthfeel- Medium-Full Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Smooth, and awesome hop flavor on the palate afterwards.

Overall Impression- While enjoying the Centennial IPA weekly this past year, I was happy to come back to this 2X IPA from Founders again! I definitely recommend this one with its strong citrus hop flavors and punch to the mouth. A hop heads dream! I definitely didn't know this one was over 9% though! I had this for the first time @ the Founders Beer Dinner @ The Stable in Benton Park. Love coming back to good beers!

4.75/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Pours gold in color, on the hazy side, with a creamy two finger white head that left very good spotty lacing with rings as it goes down; not the most impressive looking beer, but on par for a DIPA and good looking overall.

Wow, the nose blasted my senses with sweet floral and piney hops, mixed with citrus hops, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel and some nice hop spices; this smells like the fresh hops are still in the glass and the hop oil is still in the mix. The hops don’t let up, except to allow some flowers and potpourri whiffs through and then to give way to the grapefruit and citrus notes. Smells like fresh squeezed hops.

Holy Delicious Batman! This tasted of massive hops, but it was sweet without any spice or heat to negate the flavor; the spice is there in the form of coriander or pepper, with some light heat, but this beer is all about the hops. Flavors include floral hops, flowers, piney hops, grapefruit, citrus hops, lemon, orange peel, sweet malt, caramel and/or brown sugar, grass, oily resin, light spices, mild grains and a hint of wet bread; this is a hop dominant beer, yet manages to stay tasty and doesn’t cross the line into hop overkill thanks to just enough malts and grains in the mix. It’s zesty, sweet, oily, citric and has some mild alcohol burn in play, but it still works perfectly for me and went down very easy.

Mouthfeel is slick, creamy and oily smooth, with a medium body, mild carbonation and a slightly bitter finish that trails off with a little hop spice pucker. The citrus pucker ends on the bitter side, but again it was just right for this beer to be very enjoyable with tasty citrus fruit flavors trailing.

To me this is what a DIPA should be, as I found this easy to drink and so delicious that I wish I had another growler full of it. An unbelievably good beer that I highly recommend. I've also had this from a bottle and both ways the ABV is masterfully contained for a smooth drinking experience.

Drinking Notes: As I was typing this review up news broke that Osama Bin Laden was finally killed by US Troops in Pakistan; that news made this world class beer taste even better. I salute all our military and intelligence personnel and raise my glass to those killed in battle protecting us, and of course those murdered 10 years ago on 9/11.

Pours a clear honey straw color with a big dense white head that dissipated into a light cap with some sticky lacing. Definitely on the light side for a DIPA.

The aroma packs a citrus grapefruit punch, quite lovely. There are some peppery and grassy notes as well. Pretty much all hops on the nose.

The taste is of grapefruit rinds, tropical fruit followed by piney & resiny hops. This is one bitter bastard. There is a sweet malt the compliments the citrus and tropical fruit hops and adds a hair of balance to this beer.

Moderate feel with tingly carbonation. Starts off fairly smooth on the palate but then it turns bitter and destroys your palate and leaves some aspirin astringency. A bit of a belly burn and some stickiness on the finish.

It appears that Founders went with the palate stomping approach to this DIPA. I prefer much more balance but the flavors are good and it is a well made beer.

Big strong white head to start things off. Not especially wowing on the eyes, very typical golden tone to this beer. However, there are some very nice scents going on here. Strong grapefruit and fresh floral smells. The mouthfeel is just about perfect for a double IPA in my opinion. It's got that punch expected from the style, however theres a certain smoothness that really bring it together nicley. The hop profile includes mostly earthy/grassy notes with a little smudge of grapefruit and an orange-y citrus kick. Very nice, complex flavors in this glass. It's a beautiful thing.

Pours like apple juice in color, very light and sort of thin. Small head and little lace.

Smells has a super nice open dank raw hop smell with citrus, spicy and brighter fruity notes.

Taste has more orange and lemon peel with some piney hops. Nice bitter finish. Pretty nice but not overly complex and could have had a little more malt to back up the hops.

Nice mouthfeel thats smooth and has great carbonation levels.

Great drinker, easy to put down quick and to cleanse between a Bourbon County Vertical!!

A fluffy white head with good retention and nice lacing. Somewhat pale gold with a touch of haze. Lovely bouquet of tropical fruits, pine and citrus. Pineapple, mango, and papaya float over a bed of sweet caramel and malt. Pine forest wraps itself around the sweetness and amplifies it nicely. A splash of citrus blend completes the mix. Taste is suggested in the nose but the hops arrive first and in a big way. Grapefruits and hop oil wrap themselves around my tongue and give way to a nice malt core of caramel and whole grain dough. Then more grapefruit. Finish is dry and clean with just a touch of hop oil and crackers. A slight warming as is swallow. Feel is surprisingly light with a crisp carbonation and refreshing quenching quality. Super drinkable and no hint of the abv. I could quaff this all day winter or
summer.

Pours a syrupy looking coppery color. About a 1 finger head maybe less with a little lacing.

Really smells like grapefruit, honestly. Grapefruit hops. I really feel like i want to smoke this beer, lol.

Tastes aAAAAMAZING!!! Grapefruit and subtle pine with a bitter hop finish. One of the best IPA's ive ever had.

Great mouthfeel, perfect carbonation for an excellent IPA.

WOW!! This is one of the best IPA's ive ever had. It all starts with the smell - grapefruit hops, hmmmm. And the taste is the same, I love it, thank you founders for finally coming to NY, i love you, gnite.

A - Pours an extremely clear golden-orange color with only a small amount of head. Leaves behind spots of lacing.

S - Aroma is of nice floral and citrus hops. There is also some piney and grassy aromas mixed in. Fairly potent.

T - Starts off with a smooth citrus hops taste with just a touch of bitterness. The bitterness comes on a bit stronger through the middle with some of the more floral/piney tastes making themselves known. There is a nice lingering citrus hops flavor with some lingering fruit flavors with a bit of bitterness. Alcohol taste is just slightly present towards the end. Very well balanced.

M - Medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. Feel assertive on the tongue at the start and finishes nice and dry. Feels very crisp overall.

D - Very drinkable, especially considering the relatively high abv (9.4%), it is not overly noticeable as the beer feels nice and smooth and crisp. Very well balanced overall.

Founder's Double Trouble pours yellow with a slight amber tinge with a white head from a brown half gallon growler. The aroma is all hops, grapefruit comes to mind. The flavor is intensely hoppy, pineapple and grapfruit like flavors dominate. Alcohol is only slightly noticeable, but this one packs quite a punch. Excellent beer, recommended.

Growler from Big Z Beverage. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet citrus, grassy hops, and garlicky hops. Flavor is quite similar -- lots of citrus, hop oils, garlicky hops, some caramel malt. Quite tasty, about equal to the bottle form.

Another growler shared by Eric - cheers!

Rich golden pour with a decent sized white head that diminished to a light film, but did leave some lace. Pine resins and citrus in the aroma with an underlying sweetness. Very decent flavour, and good balance - tangerine and grapefruit mix in with a touch of pine, and are married to a strong sweet malt background. The alcohol is expertly hidden in this beer. While it has all the amped up flavours of an imperial (more hops and more malt), it drinks like a session beer, which is dangerous! Smooth and clean mouthfeel with low carbonation.

Great stuff.

Big thanks to abbddull for this growler. Poured into a tulip.

The beer pours a nice amber/orange that lets a good amount of light through. It has a small white head with a good amount of the traditional oily DIPA lacing.

The smell is very interesting. The first smell is pine, but it's not the strongest smell, just a faint pine that introduces the beer. The dominant smells are citrus hops and a little sweetness, like a pineapple perhaps. Not much booze in the smell, which is unexpected.

The taste is bitter, bitter pine and citrus, just an awesome example of the style. The hops are there at the start, middle and finish of the taste and it leaves you with a nice dry finish.

The beer was surprisingly well carbonated (this was my first growler trade, didn't know what to expect). The bitterness was spot on for the style and I really like a double IPA with a dry finish. The high abv is well hidden and the beer is delicious, something I am definitely going to revisit in the future.

I picked this up at the Drafting room, shared w/ carlos and evets on separate occasions. Poured chilled into a willybecker.

A - A light amber/straw golden hued ale w/ 1/4 inch of white cap that leaves sticky lace. The light color is slightly out of the ordinary for Double IPA's and I like it. It has a crescent moon for head and the clarity is lightly hazed w/ minute bubbles

S - Sweet + crisp w/ grapefruit scent high in the aroma w/ moderate scent of alcohol. The nose warns of pine cone type hops w/ yeasty esters which are fruity

M - the feel is sweet upfront w/ moderate bitterness apropos to style w/ med high acidity and bitterness. The texture stays sweet and has a warming finish w/ residual smooth resinous note with the bitterness lasting

T - A light sweet crystal tinged malt mixed w/ grapefruit and pine upfront w/ acidity and mild malt in the taste w/ light alcohol taste increasing as it warms w/ gentle dry malt flavors. The citrus and herbal hops bring the bitter intensity to this flavor w/ a gentle pine cone accent and mild grassiness. A nice warmth of alcohol and mild sweet light malt w/ an intensely bitter strong finish

D - Not the most drinkable DIpa, but certainly delivers the hops in an extreme way no question. It goes big or goes home. A great IIPA just very tasty and fits the west coast style well.

Got a growler of this fine DIPA from the brewery.

It pours a hazy orange color with a pretty substantial head on it. It is a strikingly bright beer which made me think at first that it looked thin. Upon closer inspection, however, I realized that it was darker and thicker than I originally thought.

The smell is delicious fruit rind and citrus with a nice, subtle hops to back it up. Good and flowery and not too sweet. Great aroma for a beer like this.

It tastes great. No alcohol presence at all which is something I usually don't like. Double trouble has enough going on though, that I let that slide. Delicious piney hops go well with the mango/passionfruit flavoring. The malt is there to back it all up but it isn't big by any means.

Usually, I don't mind when an IPA coats your mouth. This one doesn't kick the shit out of your taste buds, but that makes it feel more elegant, I think. There is nothing cloying about the sweetness in this beer and the bitterness, while certainly there, is so out of your face. I guess I would call this a "nice" Double IPA.

I would probably drink the entire four-pack (why four pack? ask Founders about this) save for the abv. It's a sneaky alcohol presence for sure... I guess that's where the trouble is! Fantastic beer. One of my favorite DIPAs or IPAs.

4/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a semi-clear, golden body with a thin, white head.

Smell: Strongly hoppy, citric-smelling scent that socks you in the nose so hard, you can't help but check for a nose bleed. Fragrant notes of tangerines, grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, and pine resin. As I was leaning back from the glass, I got slapped with a bouquet of fresh-picked flowers.

Taste: Sweet, though short-lived perfunctory maltiness upfront. Now that that's out of the way, it's time for some citric, acidic hints as we transition into the fruity, floral, tropical and pine-packed hop flavors. There's definitely a warming alcohol presence contained within, but I'm not picking up too much in the overall flavor, as my taste buds are probably far, far too busy contending with all of the hops. There's only one final touch of sweetness; a faint dieing gasp from the thin maltiness. Finishes dry and sharply bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: A punchy, downright intense Double IPA that's in the same vein as Bell's HopSlam, though, and this is just me, I feel I'd prefer the Bell's just a tad over this one.

A hazy golden yellow/orange color with a huge fluffy white head that satys around for a long time,huge amounts of sticky lace all over the insides of my glass. Smells of grass(skunk weed,in a good way)pungent citrus and piney hops with very little malt presence.Flavor at first is ultra sugary/tart grapefruit,oily lemon peel, and pine needles, more bitterness,if you let it warm enough you can detect some of the faint caramel malt tones,and this very faint note of honey. Finish is dry and a little boozy. Medium in both body and carbonation.One of the best growlers of beer ever drank. Super Ultra Good !

Pours copper and hazy witha fluffly off white head that recedes slowly and leaves a fair amount of lacing on the glass. First whiff after pouring is a strong evergreen hoppiness with an underlying sweet citrusiness. Further on, the sweet citrus becaomes more dominant with some grapefruit and sweet tropical fruit notes. Taste is the sweet citrus flavor riding a medium body with a nice malt backbone. There is a sprite like sweetness as well that blends into a peppery bitterness and finishes with a nice dryness and some evergreen flavor. A highly drinkable beer for me, one of those beers where every sip makes you crave another. Although the alc content is still fairly high, it is much easier to drink more of this than the devil dancer, which is a great sipper. This beer also fits the dipa category better for me.
