I was at a great little pizza place in DC that had this beer on tap as their "seasonal beer", after sampling it, I ordered it. They served it in a fab (huge) red wine glass. The aroma was clean and grassy but not as grassy as the Plinys. The mouthfeel and taste was smooth and amazingly drinkable, counting that this beer is 9.5% and it drank like a 5% beer. We don't get a lot of Founders down in FL (well not any) so I was super excited to find this, and enjoyed it very much with my lunch. I have enjoyed almost every Founders beer that I have come across in my beer travels and I am going to be very sad that I am not going to be finding any Double Trouble in Florida.

Pours a brilliantly vibrant golden hue with deep orange edges. A finger of bright white head resides on the the top of the glass. Super sticky looking with great lacing. Smells of pure hop heaven. Oily hops invade the nostrils. Huge tropical hop nose with lots of grape fruit, orange, peel, citrus, and a touch of mango. Bright apricots come through as the beer airs a bit along with ripe pineapple. The head fades a bit and it's time to drink!
Creamy and delicious smooth with a mild body. Pungent and tangy grapefruit on the middle of the palette. Starts with a sticky sweetness and follows up with a fruity intensity. Extreme hop bitterness dances along the back of the tongue and fades away leaving a tropical paradise of flavor on the tongue. Minute amounts of alcohol makes its presence known and adds to the balance of this beautiful brew.
Purely a hop bomb. The pale malt adds nothing but a stable body intended to hold together the well blended flavor of delicious hops. Incredibly complex and dangerously drinkable.
Truly a winner and a contender for my favorite beer of all time.

This amazing American Double IPA is ridiculously easy to drink (a little TOO easy).
I had the privilege of having one or two (or more...) of these at General Denver in Wilmington, Ohio. Poured with about a 1-2 finger head in a normal pint glass. It was a lovely light apricot color, and it was very clear.
The aroma was very citrusy with a good deal of grapefruit. The head remained until about halfway through the pint, and it had a good amount of lacing in the glass.
The flavor was exceptional. It has a wonderful kick of bitterness from the hops, as well as a lot of flavor given off by them. It tasted a lot like grapefruit and other citrus fruits with a really nice sweet finish.
This is probably one of my favorite beers at the moment. It's seasonal, you can only get it Jan - April so when you see it, grab it! Truly excellent stuff, a GREAT beer!
