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!

wimpyjoe (4169) - 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.

Cask, Philarmonic, Liverpool. Copper looks with a meek off-white head. . Malty nose with a little fruitiness. Some hop presence but a bit on the thin side flavour-wise. Rustic bitter finish. Drinkable, but forgettable.
