Double Trouble has an amber appearance with a surprisingly mild aroma (slight pine scent). I was surprised at the amount of malt in this beer, but it had a really good hop bite at both the front and the back of the taste. The feel, due to the malt, was slightly creamy. A very good Imperial IPA, even with the high malt content in the body (which itself was good, just unusual for an imperial style IPA).

More piney and bitter than I like in a IPA but if thats your style you may like this .. I'm more of a juicy new England style IPA guy myself so take that into account with my rating..

Bottled on 5-25-18
Consumed 12-11-18

Pours a light amber with a thick white fluffy head. Almost looks like soap suds.

Smell is fairly mild. Smells of corn and barley with a hint of hops. Surprisingly not a stronger smell.

Taste is hoppy both front and rear of mouth. Good balance with some seeeter malt but leaves a bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is light with lower carbonation.

Overall a great IPA.

Great quality IPA, however founder’s tends to make their stronger IPAs more on the malt-forward side which creates for a creamy, slightly heavier body. Heavier on the pallette but full of beautiful malt and hop flavor.

Poured from a 12-oz bottle into pint glass in October 2018. Bottled-on date of 05/17/18 listed on the label, and drank less than 1 month after purchase.

Appearance: Medium gold body with 2-finger light-tan head. Beer is a clear and brilliant coloring, and not much hazing like other Imperial IPAs. Head lasts a minutes before decreasing to a thin covering, and it leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

Smell: Huge aroma filled with a strong hops aroma, and includes citrus, pepper, and pine smells. A little more sweet than some other IPAs or APAs. The aroma filled the area as soon as I opened the bottle.

Taste: There is a noticeable hops flavor, as expected from an IPA. There is strong bite from the hops along with other flavors like citrus, but the hops bitterness is not overpowering. This is not as bitter as some other IPAs. The aftertaste provides a variety of flavors over time. Not overly bitter or hoppy, and has a nice balance.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Strong alcohol, which matches the 9.4% posted on the label.

This is a smooth strong-bodied beer, that is easy to drink. It is a good and strong Imperial IPA, and is very well balanced. The aftertaste is really enjoyable. I would definitely drink this again.

Golden and slightly hazy, with slow rising bubbles. Topped with 3 fingers of yellow tinged head.

Smells of pine, citrus, pineapple, and candied ginger.

Tastes of the same, with a big alcohol backbone, and grapefruit pith bitterness.

Medium to slightly heavy, syrupy body with lots of carbonation.

Got in Sacramento, drinking in Redding, Oct 9th, 2018.
