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.

Bottle shared by BOLTZ. Gold color pour with a small foamy head. Aroma of pine, citrus, caramel and light fruit. Sweet malt and lots of hop bitterness in the flavor. Great brew!

slight orangish/golden amber color, aroma of sweet caramel malt, citrus, honey, and cotton candy. hoppy and bitter, but the bitterness is well balance and not overpowering, similar to Bell’s Hopslam

bottle from boltzy on 3/21/2010. golden colored with a small white head. nice sweet bw aromas... green peppery barrel, vanilla, caramel , citrus/orange, pine and a little bit of spiciness. the flavor is the same. unfortunately, a little too sweet for my taste. the rich chewy mouth feel doesn’t make it easier... 7/4/7/3/15/3.6

Bottle, thanks tarheels! Got a smirnoff ice with your name on it when you get back from Philly! Pours golden with a small white head. Flavor is big hops, but is much closer to a barleywine then a DIPA. Has the medicine mouthfeel of a barleywine with a aggressive pine/citrus nose and flavor.

Hand bottle thanks to Badnewsbeers.
This is my first bourbon barrel aged IPA and I guess I’m not really a big fan. I just do not agree with the combination of bourbon and hops. I think it takes alot away from the beer in the case. I got mostly bourbon out of this, with hints of hops and bitterness but really a little too sweet and boozy. It was drinkable, but probably not my thing.

GT2 (7884) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUN 10, 2010
12oz hand bottle courtesy of badnewsbeers. Pours a clear pineapple, bright syrupy yellow with no head, some white bubbles that leaves crystalline lace. Aroma is not hoppy or even stale hoppy. It is barleywine with vanilla, booze, white sugar, orange juice. Taste is sweet, boozy, full of vanilla. Reminds me a bit of older Bells Oracle. Pretty much a DIPA turned into barleywine instead of rotting strawberry cheesecake.

Sparky (2133) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Botle shared by BOLTZ7555 at Hellbilly’s Shootout in Sosco Tasting. Thanks J! Pours clear gold with a half finger white head. The nose is caramel, ripe citrus and pine. The taste is toffee, ripe citrus and tart grapefruit with a slight alcohol burn in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Great IPA. Thank again J!

arminjewell (5718) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Pours hazy yellow with thin to no white head, thanks for the hookup! Big spicy, piny, hop aroma. Taste up front is sweet grapefruit, orange hops with a nice bready malt and a nice bitter finish. Oh so drinkable, and delicious. No sign of the 10.5%, great brew.

Crushed at BSAF 2010. Lots of citrus flavors and aromas, especially oranges. Good hop character with an almost bourbon sweetness to it. Awesome beer from a awesome brewery.

It amazes me that a brewery as good as Founders continuers to be down rated so often. This one pours dark straw w 2 f ow head and great lacing. Nose is oaky vanilla, hops, cognac, malt. Tastes fruity, hoppy, with honey, plum, cognac, oak, vanilla, and a rich, amazingly complex palate and finish. Awesome, and then some.
