Founders Double Trouble

I had Double Trouble by Founders Brewing Company last year for the first time and was not enamored. So little so, that I didn’t even pursue the beer this year.

So how does the beer come in as American craft beer number 55? Rich owed me some cash for picking him up some Kuhnhenn’s beer during their winter solstice release party. Since he took a while to pay, he decided to bring over a four pack of brews with payment. In there was one bottle of Double Trouble.

I know the beer has been out several weeks at least, wanting to give it a fair shake, I decided to drink it as fresh as possible as Rich only brought it over on Sunday. Quick turnaround 😉

I have heard people ask the question about a comparison to Hopslam. There is no comparison! Hopslam is an elite beer while Double Trouble, with its pleasant pine, citrus, and floral hop profile, is above average. It just doesn’t seem to come together as well and leaves the hop bitterness a little bit out there. Fix the lingering hop profile and it will approach the former category. Enjoy!

Aroma: 9, Taste: 8, Look: 8, Drinkability: 7, Overall: 7.9

Useless Fact: There are more donut shops in Canada per capita than any other country.
