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.

OldGrowth (2850) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Pint, bartenders mistake, at Raleigh Times. Good aroma, sweet, vanilla and toffee, orange, maybe a little apricot, occasional biscuit. Clean lite brownish orange, Small head, minor lace. Bitter sweet flavor, Big bitter bite with the sweet jumping in late. Heavy body, thick oily creamy mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. Well, I liked it, but I wasn’t wanting another, though that was in part because first bartender poured a full pint. the other part being, as ucusty noted, barrel aged ipa’s just seem some what self defeating. Still it got better as it warmed and the fruitier notes came through.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Tap at the Raleigh Times. Hazy amber pour with a frothy off white head. Oaky tannins, bourbon, vanilla, and light citrus on the nose. Big bitter mouth-feel. Creamy up front. Flavor is grapefruit, pine, oak, bourbon, and floral notes. Decent but Im willing to bet the base beer is better, I just cant seem to get into the BA IPA’s being somewhat of a hop head I feel like Barrel aging IPA’s takes away from the hops. Hops are supposed to be the forefront of this style instead they take a back seat

HonkeyBra (3643) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2009
On tap at Founders. Golden pour with white head. Juicy fruit sweet aroma, some spice and oak notes, grapefruit hops. Flavor is subdued in the hop portion, instead giving way to a thick bourbon sweetness. Candy sugar, vanilla, and citrus mostly. Thick on the palate and tasty to drink. I’m not sure the barrel improves the beer, but it gives the beer an interesting dimension.

Ughsmash (7276) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2009
On tap at Glass Nickel. Poured clear medium golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma was very sweet with pale malts, grapefruit meat, and vanilla leading.. the juicy sweetness actually managed to mask both the booze and most of the barrel impression. The barrel showed up in the flavor department.. lots of spicy bourbon and peppery oak notes pounded on non-descript pale malts.. pine and white peppery bitterness surrounded, but was somewhat muted.. sharp and not enjoyable. Heavier-bodied with a full feel on the palate from creamy carbonation.. very sweet.. in the end there was too much barrel, poor integration, and some oxidation.

On tap at the brewery. It was served in a snifter with a nice 2 finger head. You can pick up bourbon, citrus, and perhaps vanilla on the first sniff. It smelled fantastic and tasted even better. It was very bitter when it was cold but as the beer warmed up it evened out nicely. I could pick up a nice, but pungent citrus taste at first. Then as it warmed I could pick up some vanilla, oak and some sort of buttery taste. I would look for this beer and get it again in a heartbeat.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2009
On tap at the GTMW. Mildly hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma of bourbon, citrus, mild oak and caramel malt. Interesting combo of citrus and bourbon with a sweet malt backer that keep the balance in check. Smooth and creamy consistency with a moderate bitter finish that has some alcohol to go with it.

Pre-Great Taste, Glass Nickel. This one seems surprisingly underrated, and perhaps earlier batches were not as well done or complex. I was impressed with this beer, for one, that it hides its alcohol remarkably well. Second, the flavors are well rounded, without too much bourbon, or too much of a hops bite for that matter. Notes of grapefruit, hay, vanilla, and mango on the palate. Well done.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Sampled at the GTMW 09 - Skunky hops aroma with a little wood and some vinegar. Golden opaque color with a white head. Rich and hoppy with wood, rich malt, and grapefruit. Strong palate with a bitter citrus finish. Good sum total of parts.

Tmoney99 (11586) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Draft sample at MBGF Summer 2009. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate citrus, bourbon and small woody aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy Heaven Hill bourbon bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where more then met.
