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 (4330) - 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.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2017 Pint in the Golden Rule, Ambleside. A tasty hoppy brew, nice clean amber with a good white head, nicely balanced. Good finish.

TBone (18228) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2016
Cask at Thomas Becket, Canterbury. Deep amber color, small steady white head. Raisins and hops in the nose. Light-bodied. Raisins, earthy hops. Short finish. Uninspiring although drinkable.

Travlr (26127) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Cask at the source. Clear golden color, off white head. Very subtle floral aroma. Taste is subtle black pepper. Plain.

Towey1989 (3270) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2016
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear pale amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, slight orange, subtle fruits and some grassy, floral hops. Taste of caramel, slight toffee apple, subtle orange and some grassy, floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A bittersweet, short, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Very similar to Unicorn with a few more hops added, not very inventive but it’s ok.

Hazy pour but clears. Amber with a white head. Light aroma, bitter citrus taste. Not a huge amount of aftertaste but it’s very drinkable.

Caskat Hole in t’Wall Bowness-on_Windermere. Golden amber colour with a small white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma, with some citrus, malts and caramel. Nice hoppy and fresh finish.

ManVsBeer (10954) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2014
Cask @ Castle Hotel, Manchester. Deeper golden ale with some hop and perhaps more malt. A decent session ale though with a touch of sweetness in its nose, although more of a grainy-bitter aftertaste.

KyotoLefty (10693) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2014
From the cask at their pub in Stockport. A full-flavored premium bitter. Amber-bronze color. Good malt character and decent hops as well. Citrus and grass.

NordicV (2501) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2014
Cask @Charlies in Cph. Bärnstensfärgad öl med lätt vitt skum. Doft och smak är fruktig med inslag av citrus. Maltighet och karamell med blommiga noter.
