Notes/Commercial Description:
Hops and Robbers was formulated with two great friends who share a passion for Craft beer, conversation, stealth missions (Finding great beer on tap) and travel. Nathan and Claude have always been looking for the next big score for IPA’s, so we decided to produce our own beer for the local market that had a great balance, aroma and 50 IBU’s!

This is golden IPA with an exceptionally rich and complex character. Fruity aromas of lemon with hints of pineapple combine crisply with toasty caramel flavours and a tasty malt backbone. Dry hopping with cascade hops ensures more hop aromatics are retained in the finished beer. Made with pride and panache, Double Trouble Brewing’s flagship brand Hops & Robbers is refreshingly delicious.

A very refreshing IPA! Mild hop flavour with a strong pineapple taste and hints of citrus, grapefruit, and orange. The fruity flavours make this a great session IPA and a perfect beer for those who are new to exploring the taste of craft beer. Not too overwhelming with a nice balance between hoppy and fruity.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Undated pint can, though freshly received at the MLCC, poured into a nonic fridge cold.

A: Pours a very beautiful sunset orange with a touch of haze and a giant fluffy white head that drops to a cap and laces most wonderfully.
S: The nose is a nice mix of orange and lemon zest with some sweet and grainy malts and a bit or earthy pine. Not as hoppy as I hoped for an IPA but a fairly complex nose
T: Some grainy / toasty notes in the body with a decent bitterness. Light hop flavours, mainly towards the earthy side of things. A nice beer, just not exactly what I was expecting
M: Bitterness builds but is never bracing. At moments the body feels a bit watery.
O: A solid beer, just not a great example of an IPA. Good flavours, but needs more of a hop hit to be an IPA. And calling a beer "sessionable" at 5.7%, I know a few brits that would tune you up for saying that.

Pours a nice Amer colour from the can leaving a small amount of head that reduces rather quickly leaving oinly a slight foam on top of the beer. Nice lacing that remains after the first few mouthfulls.

A nice aroma of hops. As the beer warms you can then smell a hint of citrus, flowers and yeast.

A very nice and strong taste of hops. Those that dislike bitter beers should skip this one for sure. A background of malt

Average mouthfeel with a bitter finish

Overall an enjoyable beer for those that like hoppy, bitter beers. Pairs well with mexican foods, cilantro, cumin based dishes.
