COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised bottle.
By using the finest Kent aroma hops in two different stages in the brewing process, this beer has developed a delightful hop character with a well balanced bitterness. Double Hop is full-bodied and refreshingly different.

imdownthepub (9639) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2010
Bottled, 500ml from Tesco, Banbury. Dull yellow gold with slight head. Instant mashy, grainy aroma on opening then a rough malty flavour, some bitterness but not as hoppy as the name suggests. A somewhat boiled note in the close.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - JAN 13, 2009
Bottiglia da 50cl comprata al Beer8, versa colore rossiccio con poca schiuma, il profumo non è esattamente quel che mi aspettavo dato il grande sbandieramento dell’etichetta; finest hops qua, more hops là però l’aroma è piuttosto generico, sti pirla di inglesi se la tirano col delightful hop character e poi magari ha più hop character una scoreggia che faccio io al pomeriggio (anche se forse non la definirei delightful). Il sapore è vago, per niente spiacevole, non guasto, semplicemente molto vago e lieve, tutt’altro che impressionante; si lascia bere abbastanza bene, forse però 50cl sono la misura ideale una goccia prima di stufare, non credo che avrei bevuto un altro bicchiere, è noiosa!! Buonina, ma noiosa!!

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2009 Bottle from Tesco. Similar to the cask version but more reliable and a much lesser beer. Decent bottled bitter.

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2008
Bottle. Medium head but not much evidence of the added hops it claims to be brewed with. More bitter than hoppy. Disappointing.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2007
Bottled. Malty aroma with hints of orange. Hazy, yellow color, beautiful head, good lace. Sweet, caramel malts, light herbal and floral hops, medium body. Refreshing, great session beer.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2006 Bottle picked up at Tuckers Maltings, Newton Abbot,, Devon 14-11-06 had the same evening. This started off great but finshed a touch disappointingly some spices, hops abound, could have been a lot lot better.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2006
Good looking bright amber ale with a small white head. Malty aroma, but not one I particularly like: it has an artificial plastic tang. The malt comes over better in the taste with some sourness and an uncompromising bitterness.
