JoeMcPhee (8216) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2008
Tap at Blind TIger. Beautiful amber-orange colour with a thick creamy sticky head. Aroma is very much like fresh cereal, sweet cookie dough/biscuity malts with notes of wildflower honey. Aroma is also lightly floral and fruity. Some orange peel, grapefruit and more sweet honey. Very low on cohumulones giving it an extremely soft but lingering bitterness. Quite fruity, but not the usual C-hop combination. There is a fairly berryish sweetness and a light herbal quality as well. Seems barleywinish in the way that the sweet cookie dough malts seem to dominate the hops. An unusual take on the IIPA style.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Draft @ the AZ Strong Beer Fest - First beer of the fest and a pretty good one. Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head. Aroma is citrus and floral hops. Nice hop flavor up front with some lightly toasted malt for balance. Medium body. A good beer.

BOLTZ7555 (2710) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Everything about this beer is just a tad above average. ...And I mean just a hair. Sampled this at the AZ Strong Beer Festival; head disappearing almost immediately above a sunset body. The aroma isnít overpowering pine, the flavor isnít aggressive grapefruit/citrus, and nothing sticks to the palate. This "Trouble" is definitely far from "Double".

mabel (5371) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2008
[910-20071205] Tap @ Redlight Redlight (Orlando, FL). Mainly raspy orange peel hops aroma has some lemon. Hazy, orange brown body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Super grapefruit citrus grass hops flavour has something like a little bit of Johnson & Johnsonís baby shampoo. Medium body is very bitter. Fair hoppy beer.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - DEC 12, 2007
Light hazy pour, deep amber/orange. Light beige head, slow recession, solid pretty sheet lacing. The aroma unleashes, with an air of immediacy, a moderately intense toasted grain base. Hops are medium, not as pungent as hoped for. I ordered this for a big dose of hops, after all. Earthiness, soil, floral notes and soft grapefruit are noted. Alcohol is too prevalent. Mild stale toast and bready malts finish off each inhalation. Astringency is medium-high and overwhelming in the flavor. Malt tastes stale and uninviting. Hoppiness is at a dissapointingly low level. Depth of flavor is very low and incredibly uninspired. Finishes lightly bitter, bready and bland. The mouthfeel is sticky, oily and parching with low-medium carbonation. Unimpressive.

redlight (2303) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2007
draft @ redlight redlight. (tap handle indicates 7.6% ABV) Piney citrus aroma, somewhat sweet. Pours orange pale with a thick white head. Very hoppy, citrus, bitter orange/grapfruit, a little astringent, with notes of pine resin in the background. not bad.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Draft at Isaac Newtons - no notes taken, but I remember fairly well. Orange color (cloudy) with a very sweet piney-grapefruit aroma. Flavor was a bit too sweet and unbalanced. Not bad, but could have been much better for the style.
