COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Doom is unleashed when Founders’ award-winning specialty Imperial IPA, Double Trouble, is aged in bourbon barrels for four months to create a distinct flavor experience. So, while Double Trouble is brewed to turn your world upside down, Doom is brewed to tear it apart: pungent hops conspire with boozy bourbon notes to send your senses spinning.

This didn’t work for me, too much stuff going on that doesn’t really work together to make an enjoyable beer. That has to be taken into account when designing a beer, do the flavors help or hurt each other, and is there a flavor profile you are trying to make. Barrel aged IPA or DIPA’s inherently to not work, the caramel bourbon flavor from the barrel cuts out the hop character and combines to make something that doesn’t satisfy either palate.

pushkinwow (1966) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
On tap at the 2013 Capones Black Friday event. Dark amber with white head. Strong buttery bourbon aroma with vanilla, oak and bourbon, the hops have faded off and become more muted but you still get a strong citrus and resin combination. Moderate carbonation and full body, manages to be both sweet and quite bitter at the same time.

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2013
750ml bottle shared in GTMW13 line. Bourbon forward, but really grows on you. Really balanced and drinkable for the ABV. Caramel bourbon, but a nice piny hop balance too. Creamy, pleasant body. Well done.

One of the best - if not THE BEST - beers I've ever tasted. Distraught that I probably will never get to have it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crazy. A lot on the nose, beautiful notes of citrus. Tastes like wine, smooth with a bite. Palate is a bit weak. Very unique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Ashley's. The pour is a pretty clear gold. The head is a white sheet and laces amazingly. The aroma is hoppy, full of citrus and bourbon. The barrel brings a beautiful vanilla note into it. The flavor is bitter at first, and then the sweetness from the vanilla and bourbon takes over. There is a light nougat finish on it, and the mouth feel is just great. The finish is a little weak, but overall this is a great beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at mash tun festival. Pour is honey colored with a small white head. Aroma is very hoppy (citrus, peaches, grapfruit) with notes of bourbon and wood. Flavor has a lot of the barrel aging present - oak, vanilla, toffee, cake, and then transitions into a hoppy bitter finish. Alcohol is masked well.

Best ipa I’ve ever had. Has a heavy bourbon flavor so it won’t be for you if that’s not your thing
