COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Calling Double Trouble a "hop showcase" might imply that this brutal 167 IBU monster has your best interests at heart. If your answer to the question, "How much hopping would you like?" is simply "more", this is what you wish for. The malt base and Chico yeast together construct the perfect platform for the multiple additions of so many hop varieties no mere beer label could label them all. Your overwhelmed taste buds will know the feeling.

500ml bottle. Soon as this is open I can smell citrusy goodness. Pour is pretty special with a mega looking head. Golden smoky appearance. Taste is citrus with malty tones. This is a super fresh find. Just arrived at the bottle shop. Gets my vote. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamestulloch (3098) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 7, 2016
Keg at The Hanging Bat. Murky amber body with a thick white head. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel and vine tomatoes. Flavour of grapefruit, melon, toffee and peppery hop spice with a bold, bitter finish. Medium to full body with a creamy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Itís not particularly clean (this was the end of the keg, to be fair) but itís absolutely loaded with hops and I like that.

Pours clear orange amber with a finger of white head. Aroma of resin, peach, apricot, lemon, nectarines, light caramel. Taste is mild fruit sweet before a resin bitter finish. Somewhat funky but enjoyable. Medium bodied and smooth with soft carbonation.

Keg at the Queens Head, St Pancras, 21/04/16. Golden orange with a decent off White head that retains well. Nose is a touch farty, bitter orange, light pine, toasted bread, juicy citric peel. Taste comprises caramel, pine needle, sticky tropicana, light mineral notes. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness in the close. Ok DIPA.

A super-hoppy sensation! Surprisingly palatable once you get over the initial massive hit of hops. A lovely complex flavour. A winner ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
