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 Oíso 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. Iíve 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.

Look - Very light orange body. Little lacing. Thinner than average white head. Smell - Malt but when swirled Pineapple and grapefruit. Iím glad to see citrus come through on this imperial. Taste - Smell translates to taste. Stronger citrus flavor than DD. Feel - Not a carb bomb. Heavy. Alcohol doesnít stick to tongue. Overall - Better than devil dancer. I like the characteristics of a lighter beer with this heavy.

Floral and bitter, with a grapefruit, orange, lemon undertow. Sticky and heavy - with lots of malts to back it without getting in the way.

Padron4KM (652) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUL 4, 2015
12 oz bottle, bottled on 5/25/15.
Clear dark golden, dense white head, sticky lace.
Dank, citrusy, and tropical (mango) hops dominate the aroma, with some subtle sweet notes.
Flavor is sweet malt upfront, with some tropical hops midpalate, and a sweet citrusy finish.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Golden coloured pouring with a thin white head. It has very rich pineapple and passion fruit flavours, citrus and malty notes followed by a smooth zesty, bitter hoppy and pine finish. Excellent!

Tap. Cask. Hazy Amber pour with a big white head. Citrus, pine, hip, grapefruit. It has a double IPA sweetness but is still crisp. Bitterness balances out the sweetness very well. Really nice
