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.

I'm a big fan of Michigan beers, generally, and Founders, specifically. I love their Rye IPA, like the Centennial IPA and would drink the All Day IPA on just about any day.

However, as with other imperial IPAs, I find myself downgrading this beer a bit because the relatively high alcohol content almost overwhelms the beer. I prefer a strong hop kick of a first-class IPA to the inevitable alcohol taste of an imperial.

It looked good in the glass (if a little paler than expected), smelled fine (some imperial IPAs really give away the alcohol in the odor), and tasted pretty good. I've had beers of this style that are not at all subtle, so I gave this Double Trouble fairly high marks because it is a pretty good representative of its class.
