This is, like, my new favorite beer ever. I had it in Lexington, KY on draft a few weeks ago. What blew me away, is that it was like the little hop cone that O’so brewing put in the Lupulus Maximus or whatever they call it. The Lupulus Maximus or whatever is a fine big multo-IPA, but getting to chew on the cone that you have to force out of the bottle is the icing on the cake. BUT, the ENTIRE pint of Founders Double Trouble is EQUAL to chewing on the little hop cone icing on the cake. This is one amazing in-your-palate concentration of pine/citrus excellence. Not as syrupy as Bells Hopslam - - just pure miniature pinecone on just the right lightish frame. I’ve tended to stay away from Founders products at the store because of their stupid cartoonish labels and namings, that look so gimmicky, but this is right smart stuff.

spacecube (890) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2014
355ml bottle, pours clear golden brown with a small head, pungent resiny, piney and citrus hop over a large caramel malt backbone. Finishes bitter. Excellent balance with lots of hop and lots of malt. Plenty of flavour. medium sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body, sticky, average to soft carbonation, Excellent DIPA.

Bottle. Bitter, citrus and grapefruit hops! A little bit floral on the back of the tongue. Mild carbonation. A slight bitter aftertaste lingers which detracts slightly from the experience, in my opinion. Excellent overall.

Bottle, included in this months beer club six-pack. Pours amber with white head. IBU 86, probably a great beer I'm just not a hop-head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jh773 (142) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Yellow, little visible carbonation, thick head. Smell is mango, pineapple, grass. Flavor is caramel, tropical punch -- very smooth, not too sweet. Really well-balanced, if a little under-carbonated for my taste.

northropfrye (2247) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
Light yellow clear body with some foamy white head, not much retention or lacing. Lively aroma of citrus, a touch of pine, resin. Taste is nicely balanced between bitter and sweet malts. Nice pop to this. Good double IPA.

fraternie (826) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Big and boozy, with a smooth mouthfeel full of caramel malt that is perfectly balanced by citrusy grapefruit and finishes with a blast of spicy hops. Long finish. Packs a punch but this is very well put-together.

bobaidan (512) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - OCT 12, 2014
From a bottle, pours gold with a bit of a haze. Aroma is lemongrass. Flavor is sweet with a lot of hop presence. Lemon and citrus with a serious hop bitterness. Finish is very bitter.

Aroma: tropical fruits, heavy ripe fruits, resin. Appearance: hazy orange, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: heavy sweet. Palate: intense heavy overripe fruits, resin, heavy sweets continue, slightly dry in the very long finish. Overall: fantastic IIPA, aroma and palate are beyond belief. Bottle at Top Hops, Manhattan.

Well, if you like IPAs this might be good. Unfortunately, the waitress didn’t know it was an IPA. Even for the fact that I don’t like IPA, I wasn’t that impressed.
