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.

The beer pours a clear orange color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of floral hop notes, as well as some orange citrus and a little bit of biscuit malt. The flavor is a showcase for several different hop flavors. I get a lot of orange and flora notes, as well as some grass. Somewhat surprisingly, I also get some grape and cherry notes and very, very little bitterness or alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Interesting.

Can't believe this has not been reviewed..

Pours an effervscent amber with 3 fingers of cream colored head. Fantastic head retention

S: Pine & grapefruit

T: Pine, grapefruit, & pears, plus pineapple up front. Breadyness & grapefruit slug it out as this warms, dryness, some woody hops as well with some honey malt & pear notes. Finishes with citrus & pine, pineapple & a touch of honey suckle sweetness

MF: Chewy, light carbonation, nice balance & slight grainyness

A nice DIPA, not a world beater, but very solid

Poured into a snifter.

3.5 A: Opaque amber clay color. One and a half fingers of frothy/creamy beige head. Retention is perhaps a touch below average for the style, but a good sized ring of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Peach, pineapple, and papaya fruitiness. Balancing maltiness featuring caramel and a faint doughiness. Also hints of tomatoe paste, which I'm not a huge fan of. Still, pretty decent.

3.5 T: Tastes like it smells. Fruits mentioned above, caramel maltiness, moderate neutral maltiness, a touch of dough, and some tomatoe paste.

4.0 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Good creaminess to this and super smooth.

3.5 D: It has some flaws, but it's still a pretty good beer. The booze is very well hidden.

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.

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.

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.
