Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly known as Trouble Maker Double IPA

Pop the cap and light the fuse on Mother’s lil’ hop bomb. Making Trouble is our Double IPA, loaded with fruity hop flavor and hop aroma as well as clean pleasant bitterness and a medium to full body. Making Trouble’s taste calls for round after round, but be warned...this bad mutha is strong enough to raise a ruckus.

Copper color with finger of white head. Nose of resin, pineapple, citrus and pine. Taste of pine, pineapple orange peel and a notes of bread. Dry finish with lingering feel. Pretty good double IPA has a nice warming effect.

I've had this on tap at the brewery as well as in bottles from the brewery and from the grocery store. As always, it's better at the source but it never disappoints. Probably my favorite IPA.

A great citrus aroma is followed by a semi-sweet flavor balanced nicely by bitterness. High IBUs but not overdone at all.

Pours a clear, copper color. 2/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, citrus hops, resin, alcohol, hint of piney hops, and hint of caramel malt. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is a strong bitterness and slight dryness. Tastes of citrus hops, slight piney hops, resin, alcohol, sweet malt, and slight caramel malt. Overall, good appearance, decent aroma, strong body, not a great blend, but an average IIPA.
