Exceeded my (relatively low) expectations!

Pours a clear amber with limited head that disappears quickly. Aroma of roasted rye and malts with a hint of citrus and spices. The flavour is surprisingly robust, with roasted rye and a caramelized sweetness in the body followed by a nice hop bitterness that has "zesty" fruit tones. A real liveliness to the finish makes this a beer I am likely to purchase again.

Most inspired beer that I've enjoyed from Double Trouble thus far.

Purchased at the LCBO for $2.85 473ml can. Served at 5deg C in a draught glass

A- Very good. Pours nicely with a good 2" head that thins to a film within a minute or two, as expected from an IPA. Unusually brown, must be the rye.

S- Pretty good. Hint of coriander.

T- Very good. Touch bitter as expected again from an IPA.

M- Dry and tart. Enough said

O- Very good. Will buy again. A bit on the heavy side but very good.

Food Pairing

This nice example of an IPA went well with... Chicken balls and fried rice.

Enjoy

Can: Poured a light clear amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and limited lacing. Aroma of light piney hoppy notes with light spicy rye notes. Taste is also dominated by light piney hoppy notes with dry rye note with light grainy notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. OK but there is really nothing memorable here.

Pours a nice caramel hue, faint malt smell.
Taste pretty average malt with a bit of hop, don't taste much rye flavour.
Overall an alright beer

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.

Tall can from the Ottawa LCBO for $2.90

Appearance - Brown colour with an average size frothy beige coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some amazing lacing on the sides of the glass. The head lasted for close to 5 minutes before it began to dissipate.

Smell - Malts, caramel, light hops

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel and malts mixed with light hops. There is also some roasted/toasted notes, a touch of citrus, and some rye

Overall - A decent offering I suppose. For some reason I was expecting something more along the lines of the Camerons RPA, which has some great fruity/juicy/hoppy flavours. This beer is more on the malty side but does manage to showcase the rye.
