4.03/5  rDev -4.5%

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a stemmed tulip glass

A: A nice straw color with an orange hue. 1-2 fingers of head settling to a nice collar. Minimal lacing.

S: Big hop nose dominated by citrus (oranges, tangerines) with lots of piney and grapefruit notes.

T: Big hops from the start, dominated by floral/spicy American bittering hops; layered in is some nice citrus (grapefruit and oranges); a touch piney. A nice malt backbone. Finish is very dry.

M: Medium body and carbonation; smooth and creamy.

O: Very good balance but maybe a bit on the dry side for an imperial, a bit heavy on the bittering hops.

Double Trouble's scent rises out of the bottle immediately after the cap is removed. Pouring it, into a snifter in this case, only further released the citrusy/hoppy/piny sensation. It's a beautiful golden amber color. I've been waiting to drink this a few days now, and it did not disappoint. Huge hops--malts come through, but don't touch the hoppy bitterness of the brew.

Delicious. Founders can really do no wrong, especially with these rotating beers.
