*12 oz. Bottle*
This is a beautiful looking brew. Honey orange with some hop haze. Smells wonderful dense pine with slight citrus, floral notes and malt sweetness in the background. Taste follows the aroma. Earthy, citrus rind bitterness, wheat bread sweetness comes from behind. Nice dry bitter finish. The 9.4 abv cannot be found but just a subtle warmth just slightly after the swallow. I like this more than I thought I would. I recomend this brew for those who like well balanced DIPAs.

This is an excellent beer on-tap, i have never had it out of the bottle so i can not comment on that. It is a full flavor easy drinking beer. It will not you on your ass if you aren't careful with it. I would put it in the top 5 beers brewed from founders.

Founders Double Trouble pours a yellow semi-translucent liquid topped with an weaker foamy white head. Both the nose and tongue share the simple sweet floral hop flavor. The potency is balanced, but unimpressive for the style. On the mouth is a smooth clean refreshing beer that is expected for craft beers. Overall Double Trouble is a delicious strong simple beer that is worth a taste. It's not the best Founders has to offer, but it's still worthy of the name.
