Founders Double Trouble

This is a 9.4% ABV and 86 IBU Double IPA from Founders Brewing of Grand Rapids, Michigan (that's a lot of abbreviations for one beer). 

The beer pours an orange tinted deep golden in color, turning into a clear, light copper. There is about in inch of pure white foamy head. The aroma is passion fruit and mango skin with a light, earthy dankness. The taste follows the aromas, it is big, sweet, fruity, bitter, overripe melon and caramel malt joining the passion fruit and mango. More musky dankness enters as it warms. The beer drinks, full, round and smooth, with just a tingle of carbonation on the end. It is fairly bitter, but tempered by the sweetness of the malt.
