Ah for sure, hopefully it won't be on that few week aged when released!
Founders has been having a problem with the ink they use to date their bottles. They are aware of the problem and attempting to solve it.
All day IPA is gross IMO...would much rather get myself some daytime IPA if I'm going with a sessionable IPA
I find Daytime a waste of money and below average personally. All Day IPA fresh or Short's Prolonged Enjoyment take the cake for me.
I'd love to try the short's and at the end of the day...I'd rather enjoy a full IPA
For those of you in the area...
I had their Centennial in a firkin dry hopped the same way, and that was amazing. Can't imagine how good this'll be.
I was underwhelmed. Maybe I'm missing something. Just picked up a 4 pack and poured a cold one into a glass. Hops tasted off. I would rather have a Sierra Nevada topedo, celebration or hoptimum. Or a nugget nectar. Maybe someone can fill me in on what I'm missing. I know palates vary widely, but did not enjoy.
I would say this is quite possibly the best it has tasted yet. I know the recipe doesn't change but hops vary year to hear and the beautiful mango grapefruit characteristics of this are out of control. Did a side by side with Hoptimum and this was hands down better.
DT= bright, crisp, citrus, robust
Hoptimum= bitter, full bodied, pine/resin
Both are good but so different--prefer DT
Where in NC are you? I haven't seen Hoptimum yet... I'm bummed.
I’ve been drinking headys for over a month like every other day...think the 2le T is not to far off in satisfying ones soul or hop addiction...certainly gonna get some more
Charlotte--fairly easy to get
Same. And it definitely tastes better the fresher it is! I have a bottle from a year ago, and I plan on doing a side-by-side comparison.
Just picked up a four pack and a bottle of Doom today.
My personal favorite IPA Founders makes along with Harvest Ale. Had this on tap a couple days ago and it was fantastic. The citrus hops really help balance out the high alcohol so it's not just an insane amount of bitterness with high alcohol content.
I'm with you there, very watery IMO as well.
Founders is my favorite brewery but it is because of their stouts and their porter.
Double Trouble is an excellent IPA but their are other ones I like better, and some of those are available year round.
It's ubiquitous in Michigan stores, just like Breakfast Stout was. I thought Double Trouble was pretty good.
Where'd you find it in NY?
I couldn't find any last year but a bar 5 minutes from my house had 1 bottle left and I'd never had it before. By the end of the bottle, I was hugging the glass. Soooo delicious. Gonna try to buy a case this year.
Still want to get some Double Trouble as soon as I graduate and get out of Tennessee next weekend.
Just bought a case of this and 3 bottles of doom.
I think this beer was really good and has a lot of great flavor. It's been in the stores in NW Ohio since mid April and still pretty easy to get.
They made more breakfast stout this year, remember that Founders (like everybody else) has expanded their brewing capacity. My local shop got cases and cases.
The new double trouble has forever changed my views on Founders. Great DIPA, in the same category of all the famous DIPAs. A lil sweet on the finish but great hop character.
There is still 3 or 4 cases left of FBS at the store by my house.
Curious where you're seeing it. I live in Kalamazoo and would've expected to see it on the shelf by now, but no dice.
I'm going to have to side with the group that likes this beer. I've had Centennial and All Day IPA, and truth be told, Double Trouble is soooo much better.
However, don't misunderstand what I am saying. It's a very good IPA, but in my opinion, doesn't rank with the highly ranked, highly desired IPAs and DIPAs out there. It is also a bit pricey at $13.99 for a 4-pack. If you're lucky enough to get Sculpin in your area (Ohio, do you hear me?), that is a MUCH better option to Double Trouble for the price and you get 6 bottles instead of 4.
I just got 2 bottles of sculpin I'll drink them side by side and see which is better. I want to say Sculpin was $14.99 a six and DT was $11.99 a four
That comment was in regards to Centennial that was possibly past its drink by date.
The price comparison in VA is a little more balanced ..Sculpin 6 pack being $16 while a 4 pack of DT is $9.99, so Bang for the buck here is DT imo.
I really like both of them, but I am noticing as of late that Sculpin is becoming inconsistent, some bottles taste very metallic. Have you noticed that? I actually prefer Big eye over Sculpin these days.
Double Trouble is supposed to cost around 10$ for a 4 pack. Sure price gouging in respective areas can influence peoples tastes I guess
It's $14 here in NY, which is standard.
$9-$10 per 4pack in SE Michigan.
I love this beer. Last year I could walk into almost any store and buy this for a few months. This year I have to chase it around to different stores and get store owners to hold it for me... pretty frustrating (and I live in Michigan!). I have a bomber of Doom, and I want to do a tasting but Double Trouble has been too hard to get!
I think I scored some for this afternoon, if the guy comes through for me.
Wish me luck!
I'm in Lansing. Most stores and even some smaller party stores have four-packs. Some are selling single bottles.
A ton of this dropped in Texas (Austin) yesterday. Seems to be $12 everywhere.
Tried it for the first time yesterday. I loved it, pretty unique from what I've been drinking lately
Around $11 in Rochester, NY if you know where to look (at the places that treat their customers right)
I think I like Double Trouble more than Stone Enjoy By (drinking them both at same freshness level).
