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.

This is a fantastic beer: full bodied, good flavour, nice bitterness and amazing oily mouthfeel. This is an absolute must for hop heads!

Procent (547) - POLAND - AUG 21, 2016
W aromacie moc owoców tropikalnych - bardzo intensywny, słodki aromat, aż chce się spróbować. Barwa złota, jest opalizacja, ładna, gęsta i drobnopęcherzykowa piana. W smaku nie jest już tak miło jak w aromacie, jest zdecydowanie, intensywnie. Także są słodkie owoce, jest karmel i jest nieco wyczuwalnego alkoholu. Uderza też spora goryczka, ale bardzo dobrze ułożona. Dobrze zrobiona DIPA, w pół drogi między east a west coast.

androman (1695) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2016
50cl bottle at home from De bierbrigadier, Eindhoven. Nose is fruity, honey. Body is clear orange, head is medium, offwhite, frothy, average lasting, good lacing. Aroma is tropical fruits, grapefruit, honey, herbs, tea, leaves, tons of hops. Medium sweet, medium bitter, light fruity sour. Finish is long lasting hoppy heavy bitter. Full body, slick slightly sticky texture, soft carbonation. Bit heavy due to heavy bitter, strong flavor a bit overhopped, nice one, best bottle I’ve ever seen.

Tap at Evening Star, Brighton. Dark hazy amber color, good creamy off-white head. Riped tropical fruits and alcohol in the nose. Medium-bodied. Riped pineapple, peach and then citrus. Hop oily. Sweetish aftertaste. Quite heavy, even glueish.

jercraigs (9722) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2016
2016-05-15. Hazy orange body with a nice foamy off white head. 3++ Aroma of doughy biscuity malt. Muted hops. Flavour is hoppy, good amount of bitterness up front, moderate fruit blends with a fair bit of resinous hops. Muddled citrus has notes of pithy grapefruit seed and sweet lemon. Fruit grows as it warms but malt and moderate alcohol dominate over it. 7+ Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation.3+ decent. 7/4/7/3/16+ Bottle from Henry’s, Queenstown, NZ.

bobbysutts (19) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2016
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 (3366) - 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. It’s not particularly clean (this was the end of the keg, to be fair) but it’s absolutely loaded with hops and I like that.

Ktwse (3923) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2016
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.
