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.

3.53/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A beautiful bright copper colour, clear with limited white head. An almost European hop aroma, with faint American undertones. Hop forward taste with caramelized malt baseline. Finish does not linger...

Not as malty as a typical British IPA, yet lacking the west coast citrus & tropical fruit tones of an American version. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but I am delighted to try a ~5% ABV with some flavour.

A well balanced mild ale that will be perfectly sessionable for a wide audience, but certainly not a "hop head's" dream. (527 characters)

3.66/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at C'est What, listed at 5.6% ABV.

Golden-orange in body, with a dense, creamy white head. An impressively solid cap of retention that sticks around for the duration of the pint, leaving a mass amount of lacing. Some citrus and pine on the nose, mostly orange-y. Some pale grain, perhaps a hint of caramel or breadiness - malting is subtle nonetheless. Taste has more hops, orange and clementine flavours emerge with some pine. Bitter and light grass in the finish. Medium light body with appropriate light carbonation. Somewhere between an EIPA, English Pale and American Pale - a nice pint, although a bit plain. (623 characters)

3.5/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a two finger white head, decent retention as it ebbed to a fine collar of film. Orange amber in color. Lots of sticky lacing.

Scent is light malt, some citrus and floral hops.

Taste is somewhat subdued compared to the nose, malt,biscuit, faint citrus hops, some grapefruit and mango notes.

Bitter, dry, medium bodied, stale, some carbonation.

Overall, a drinkable IPA although nothing spectacular. Could use some more punch and is a little ho hum. (466 characters)
