Update with 2011 batch. 12oz bottled January 26, 2011, two weeks old today. Noticeable improvement in the aroma, all the great citrus notes but increased strength. Add in some cannabis and cat spray (smells like Simcoe). Flavor is about the same as previous review. I might actually be enjoying this as much if not more than this year's Hopslam. Damned good stuff, at least when super fresh!

12oz bottled Jan 7, 2010. Pours hazy amber with a large 2-3 finger white head. Retains a nice cap with plenty of sticky lacing. Nice swirls of haze in the glass.

Aroma is citrusy hops, grapefruit & orange, some grass, light caramel. A little quiet overall.

Flavor is big on citrus, grapefruit, orange, pine, grassy hops up front, some caramel sweetness, then a lasting bitter finish. A tiny touch of alcohol.

Mouthfeel is full, slick, oily, prickly carbonation.

Can't help but compare this to Hopslam. Double Trouble is more bitter, for sure, but lacks the strength and complexity in the aroma. I like 'em both, and I like they have different strengths.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a duvel tulip

A- pours a slightly orange golden, very clean and crisp with a half a finger of white head that settles into a film, nice lacing.

S- pinneaply citrus, pine, alcohol, a hint of malt, a very nice hop aroma.

T- similar to the nose, bitter pine hops with a slight alcohol bite, pineapple , not overly sweet, and very well balanced. Resinous hop flavor. The alcohol is well hidden on the hops.

M- medium body, with a nice medium carbonation that Works beautifully here, I'd say the body is dry overall and very well rounded, for all that bitter hop flavor it doesn't heavily coat your mouth with hop resins leaving a long bitter after taste. Very very drinkable.

O- an awesome dipa, one of my top for the style, inwishbi could drink this beer all the time, a great brew .
