Double Trouble Ale is an Imperial IPA from Founder’s Brewing, and wow, is it turned up a notch. It isn’t one of those heavy-yet-balanced double IPAs, this is an IPA with the volume set to 11. It’s a nice golden amber in the glass, with a thick meringue-like head that sticks around for awhile. The nose is orange and lemon and pine. It does have a lot of body, and a lot of alcohol. (9.4% ABV) In the middle is more citrus, with a quick flash of heat from the alcohol followed by an intense bitterness that’s got some spice right at the end.
I give it a 3.9 out of 5.
