UPDATED: SEP 5, 2008 Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Cloudy reddish amber, small creamy head. Grapefruity nose where resin already comes through. Sweet with bold straightforward mouthfeel and solid body. The bitterness strikes hard and early, and reaches punishing levels. Meanwhile there’s notes of mango and cookies. A typical American macho beer with punk attitude. fiulijn (20411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012

2014-05-06, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Cloudy light amber color with small creamy head. The aroma is well hoppy, both fruity and resiny, and some toffee. Full bodied; the malt flavor is a bit too chewy, with caramel, toffee, quite sweet too; very strong bitterness, the resiny is mainly hoppy, piney, a bit fruity too.
Good, but just on the heavy side.

Hazy amber color, creamy head. The aroma is nice, hoppy, very fruity. Good body, smooth and round; very good toffee flavor, with a touch of biscuits and chewy crystal malt; powerful hopping, resiny and fruity.
A bit heavy to drink, but gets an extra point for the high fresh fruity component.
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours hazy yellow. Aroma of citrus, orange zest, coriander and hops. Flavour is tangerine, pine, orange zest, citrus and some hops. Quite light for a double and the higher ABV is not at all noticeable. brokensail (16432) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 24, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear golden color with a finger of white head.
S: Not terribly hoppy and quite sweet on the nose. Some bread and a fairly strong caramel malt smell to it with a bit of pine and grapefruit, some grass, too.
T: The flavor is fairly sweet with lots of floral hops and a bit of grapefruit and orange. Sweet caramel malts and a touch of sugar. Just a touch of pineapple and pine bitterness. As it sits, the pineapple comes through more.
M: The body is sort of light with a medium carbonation.
O: I wasn’t terribly impressed by the nose, but the flavor was pretty nice. bhensonb (15083) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 9, 2014

Served on draft at Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear medium amber color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of earthy notes, caramel and tropical fruits. The taste is very tropical with notes of mango, pineapple and canned fruits. Pale malts as well. Medium-full bodied with lingering bitterness. OK... not my favorite. hopdog (12341) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2009
On tap at Capone’s. Not sure if this is the same as he had it as the ’Double Trouble Pilsner’, but I’ll use this as a place holder just in case. Poured a medium and cloudy golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas of some grassiness, floral, and toasty. Tastes of the same floral and toastiness with some caramel and citrus in the end.
