A - Pours a bright golden color with a nice head that fades to a thin layer. Pretty solid lacing.

S - Bright citrus aromas. Some pineapple notes. Very sweet malt aromas as well. Well-balanced between hops/malts for a DIPA.

T - Much like the nose - citrus/pineapple notes balance with sweet, caramel-esque malts. Nice taste, but not quite to the level of the big hitters in the DIPA category.

M - Medium bodied, nice finish. A little sticky and not as dry of a finish that a lot of DIPAs have.

O - Double Trouble is a very good, but not great DIPA. It falls just a little bit short in every category of greatness, but it is enjoyable and a good value.

Growler from Big Z Beverage. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet citrus, grassy hops, and garlicky hops. Flavor is quite similar -- lots of citrus, hop oils, garlicky hops, some caramel malt. Quite tasty, about equal to the bottle form.

Reviewed Today out of a Tulip glass. Bottled on 12/28/2010.

A - Cloudy Copper color with a finger of White Head. Head faded to leave a light film with good lacing.

S - Smell of Caramel, Grapefruit, Lemon, Grass, Pine, and Hops.

T - Tastes of Caramel, Pineapple, Grapefruit, Pine Sap, and Citrus Rind.

M - Sticky, Bitter, hint of Alcohol, some Sweetness, but quite Balanced.

D - I like this beer more than expected and at 2 months old it has held up quite nicely.
