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.

Pretty easy drinking for an imperial iPa. Love the artwork on the packaging.

WAY too hoppy for me. But I could see this being an excellent beer - if you like hops.

Gerbeer (3896) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2016
12 oz bottle. Pours a light copper color with light head. Aromas of dull pine, candied fruit, oranges and soft malts. Flavors of dry pine, dusty fruit, bitter pineapple, and dry toasted malts. Bitter finish. Getting to be old school...

tfontana (1088) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass. Aroma is citrus, pine, tropical fruit and base malts. Appearance is clear golden yellow with nice sparkle, finger-width white foamy head with poor retention and no lacing. Taste is much like aroma--bitter resin, floral, citrus with later mild pine and malt. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, average to lively carbonation with bitter finish. Overall, an experience in bitterness more than flavor but has balance and complexity.

Pours hazy burnt orange with off white head. Aroma is sweet candied citrus with some sticky spruce. Flavor is sweet with rounded bitter bite. There’s also a light fluffiness to this beer that masks the ABV admirably.
