Bought a 4 pack at Specs Round Rock for 11.99.

Pours a clear goldish yellow with some lacing. Off white head doesn't last too long in my Firestone Walker pint glass.

Man, that's a pungent scent. Freaking great. Getting some strong citrus hop aroma... grapefruit, mango, peach notes...add in a little kind bud scent as well and you've got a really great smelling DIPA here.

Yum, great bitterness up front from the hops, but a very nice sweet malt kick on the backend. Puckering bitter mixed with a sweet dryness. Uber smooth finish, fairly light for over 9abv though.

This is just a great DIPA. Up there with some of the big boys for sure. It will be a staple of mine, expecially when I'm in the mood for big citrus hops with great balance.

$3 bottle bottled 4/11/13 and poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint on 5/12/13.

Appearance: Hey, good lookin'. ;) A sunset orange sort of color with a slight hop haze -- two finger head goes down to one. The lacing is decent.

Smell: A lot of sweet grape fruit aromas. I don't find it to smell particularly complex, but it definitely has a great aroma. There may be a trace of alcohol as well as some sort of spice.

Taste/feel: Grapefruit and tropical flavors are dominant in the taste with a pretty nice balance -- though not perfect. There's a nice, solid bitterness in there that I don't too typically find in Imperial IPAs. Extremely smooth with each sip, and easy drinking. The bitterness and slight alcohol taste cause a somewhat drying effect to try and slow you down.

Double Trouble is a beer that I'd definitely recommend. I heard some people say it was "sort of" like Hopslam, but it's not at all. MAYBE the aroma is SOMEWHAT like it, but nothing else is close. Hopslam is extremely sweet (but not in a way that's cloying), and this is rather dry and bitter -- it's all about your personal preference. They're both completely different beers with an identical price tag -- try them and decide for yourself.
