Sometimes the straight forward approach is the best approach: like asking a girl on a date, or telling your boss to fuck off. Founders delivers a straight forward ass kicking brew with Double Trouble. This potion is all beer and no pretense.
Double Trouble is not trying to reinvent the pale ale wheel. Instead they are refining it, improving it, and jamming it into your face. This beer thunders in at 9.4% ABV and rocks a tongue twisting 86 IBUs. It pours a dark yellow with a whip cream reminiscent head. The scent is pure hops: strong, bold and unforgiving. This is coupled with just enough bite to remain intriguing but never overwhelming. It reachs a level of flavor balance that borders on astonishing. Definitely a must try.
Founders Double Trouble proves that Michigan remains an absolute powerhouse in the craft brewing world. If you ever catch yourself in Grand Rapids, you better stop by Founders. Tell them your looking for a Dirty Bastard. They will know exactly what you’re talking about.
