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!

jamestulloch (1055) - Edinburgh, - NOV 15, 2012
Aroma: Very mild aroma. Hay and earthy hops.

Appearance: Clear amber body with a small white head. No visible carbonation. Good lacing.

Taste: Soft peach, wood, resin and malt flavours. Pleasant but dull.

Palate: Thin to medium body with a very oily mouthfeel. Flat carbonation.

Overall: Easy drinking but boring.

Cask in the Sycamore, Parwich. Amber ale with a white head. A fairly standard tasting golden ale with a decent amount of hops in there. Nice easy drinking.

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.

Rune (7361) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2012
Half pint pulled from cask at the Old Bell Tavern. Crystal clear amber coloured body. Tiny patches at the surface. Floral fruity nose. Malt-fruity taste. Subdued bittersweet ending. Soft in the mouth. Ok, rather anonymous, though (London, 01.11.2012).

imdownthepub (9672) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Crown, Oxford. Amber with white head. Tart and slightly sour beer, cider apples came to mind. Didn’t get the hop impact at all. Not very good.
