look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

473 mL can from the LCBO; no freshness info. I've been trying to find this one for a while, and finally happened upon it while browsing in London. Served slightly chilled.

Pours a hazy, deep amber-brown colour, topped with almost one finger of dense, creamy light beige-coloured head. Nice aroma; lots of citrusy grapefruit, floral notes with maybe a hint of wet pine. The underlying malts are harder to pinpoint, but a persistent nose might be able to pick out some brown sugar, toasted biscuits and spicy rye.

Great taste. Mild caramel sweetness, biscuity malts and rye bread combine to form a sturdy backbone, with the citrusy, pithy bitterness picking up mid-sip. Mostly grapefruit, with some leafy, piney bitterness and rye malt flavour in the finish, lingering on into the somewhat peppery aftertaste. Medium in body, with fairly light carbonation and a slick, smooth feel on the palate; sort of oily, like certain IPAs. This is a wonderfully balanced, delicious rye beer that I am particularly enjoying.

Final Grade: 4.01, a solid A-. This is the third Double Trouble beer that I've had the pleasure of trying, and definitely my favourite one so far. A welcome addition to the Ontario beer scene; this should provide some solid competition for Cameron's RPA - in a pinch I'd probably prefer the former rye beer, but Fire in the Rye comes in a more convenient format and is of similarly high quality. Not available locally at the moment, but you can bet I'll be grabbing cans on the regular if/when it does.

From can into lagunitas mason jar. A bright amber brown colour, slight head with good lacing. Smell has floral notes from the centennial hops, also light lemon, over some toasty rye notes, spicy pepper, caramel and bready notes. Taste starts with a fair bit of spicy notes, cracked black pepper over dark rye bread, some citrus dryness develops, leads to a balanced, overtly rye note on the finish. Mouthfeel is full, with a light carbonation, quite a heavy spice to it, also the grainy roasty character which works quite well. Full and satisfying. Defintely a rye forward beer, the toasty and spicy character are quite dominant, hard to imagine having too many of these but it is fairly unique and gives a good showcase of the rye.

A: Reddish brown in color. Stiff pour yielded no head (baffling). Little to no carbonation. No date on the can, but I bought it at the LBCO last week. This is a prime example of why breweries should always put dates on their products (unless I just got a bad can).

S: Heavy on the rye and caramel malts. Not detecting any hops.

T: Lots of rye and caramel malt, just like the nose would suggest. Some spice from the rye. Very one dimensional.

M: A bit thin / watery and slight burn from the alcohol on the finish. The extremely low carbonation hurts the mouth feel significantly.

O: This was one of the few craft beers I could find in thunder bay. Unfortunately, it was rather forgettable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Hazy copper with some carbonation, 2 fingers of creamy beige head. Good lacing.

S: Malty, orange, a little pine.

T: Heavy on the pine, hot pepper, malt back bone, dry orange citrus taste, white grapefruit bitterness, doughy malt comes in again. Light fruitiness.

M: Medium, somewhat resinous body, medium carbonation, dry finish.

O: Really delicious rye beer. I really like this one, and it stands up to the name. Very much one I would have when in the mood. Dry and somewhat warming, would be best in the Fall when this is supposedly released. However I got it in spring, so I am glad it was still around to grab this year.

Pours dark orange bordering on brown. The big, rocky head recedes in short order but musters up plenty of foam patches on the glass. Sweet fruitiness, piney, eucalyptus hops and toffee in the nose. Moderate hops up front in the taste quickly get taken over by bready, mollasses maltiness and a subtle spicy rye character. Some banana and phenolic yeast flavor in the back. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a near creamy, active carbonation. Light bitterness and some herbal, spicyness in the shortish finish.

A nice Rye Pale Ale. Could have a bit more rye and hop character, but worth trying.
