COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Previously 5.0%.
First brewed in 2002 Double Hop was created by David Robinson (5th generation of the Robinson family) who is a particular fan of hoppy well balanced ale. With a delicious double hit of the finest Kent aroma hops, at two different stages in the brewing process, this packs a punch.
Unsurprisingly appreciation for Double Hop is soaring - this is a richly flavoured classic golden bitter beer with an interesting balance of hop flavour and hop bitterness.
Double Hop is a full bodied beer with rich malt with hop taste and a long lingeringly hop dominated with tangy citric fruit and a roasted malt finish.... perfect!

Towey1989 (1648) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2016
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear pale amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, slight orange, subtle fruits and some grassy, floral hops. Taste of caramel, slight toffee apple, subtle orange and some grassy, floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A bittersweet, short, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Very similar to Unicorn with a few more hops added, not very inventive but it’s ok.

ManVsBeer (8247) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2014
Cask @ Castle Hotel, Manchester. Deeper golden ale with some hop and perhaps more malt. A decent session ale though with a touch of sweetness in its nose, although more of a grainy-bitter aftertaste.
