What To Imbibe On:
Founders Brewing Company - Double Trouble IPA. Thank goodness I finally had this beer. Amazing Imperial IPA. Beautiful floral bouquet aroma with hints of pine and citrus. Nice lasting finish. Some sweet syrup-esque flavors from the malts that leave a sticky mouthfeel. Well balanced and easy drinking for a 9.4% ABV. Golden straw color with solid head retention and lacing. Added bonus- very cool bottle art, flipping the image upside down gives you a different perspective. Availability: July - September.
