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.

fkoolen (986) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2016
500ml bottle at home, beautiful design. Equally beautiful medium cloudy, golden colour, stable, creamy offwhite head. Nicely hoppy nose with citrus fruits, orange zest, spruce. Taste is orange zesty and resinous, firm, sweet and creamy malty base. Bitterness builds, big-time, in the aftertaste. Big body, medium carbonation.

This is my kinda beer - Suberp balance - low malt sweetness - highly hopped - quite savory - lovely aggressive bitterness - well done Tuatara - great DAPA.

ZodiacM (841) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2015
Fles 0,5l. Een mooi goudgeel bier. Aromas van tropisch fruit, hop, citrus. Volle bittere smaak, hop, tropisch fruit en citrus. Wow, een volle ronde IPA, zwaar en heel smaakvol met een lange bittere afdronk. Begin fan te worden van Tuatara.

MrHangover (3949) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2015
Bottle @ THT November. Coolest looking bottle ever! Pours a clear golden beer with a thin white head on top. Aroma of tropical fruits, sweet piney resins, hint of peaches. Flavor is malty sweet, not bitter, hop juice and slightly citrussy. Bittersweet, malty aftertaste, soft carbonation. Nice IIPA, but it lacks some power. Maybe an older bottle..

Benzai (14076) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2015
Bottle @ THT. Clear a bit rusty orange color, medium sized white head. Aroma is malts, hops, a little too much overripe sweet hops. Taste malts, hops, again a little overripe fruits again, some caramel. Decent body and carbonation.

MarcoDL (4140) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle, spiked like a lizard. Aroma is very hoppy, with citrus, passion fruit and mild caramel. Taste is a fruit fest, with citrus, peach, passion fruit and a nice caramelised malty body. Great beer.

Idiosynkrasie (6407) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2015
500ml bottle [celebrating the All Blacks historical triumph]. Slightly cloudy, orangey golden colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting and lacing, off-white head. Citrusy and piney, resinous, hoppy aroma, notes of lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, a touch of pineapple, some lemon peel, a touch of mint and eucalyptus, caramel malty basis with an almond touch. Taste is pungent bitter hoppy, citrusy, malty background with an almond touch, slightly washy fruitiness, lemon-orange-pineapple-grapefruit; lemongrass, mint, balm and eucalyptus interludes in the last third. Refreshing, throttled lively carbonation, lasting bitter finish. It’s a hop monster, but I try to take it untouched as Richie McCaw would do.
