16oz can into a pint glass. Pours a rich red with a spicy nose. The first taste is clearly the spice of rye bread. This is followed by a slightly softened but still bitter hop and then the sweetness of malt and fruit. There's enough going on here that non-rye drinkers were ok with it, while the folks who liked rye beers really liked this one. I'm middle of the road.

one of my preferred hot day refresher.
The Pour is a deep caramel colour with a rich ivory head.

The aroma is malty and rich , with a faint spicy note.

First taste is malty, with dominate note of citrus and pineapple, with only the faintest malty note.

Overall an above average beer

This was a great beer that was very drinkable and provided a satisfying taste. It delivered much more character then the other beer i tried from Double Trouble, Hops & Robbers.

Appearance- I was expecting a dark red but it was more a dark gold with a lot of sediment floating about. A typical unfiltered appearance.

Smell- Hints of hops, grains and rye with a subtle citrus aroma

taste- strong rye taste that was almost bread like with subtle undertones of orange, pine, and hops. Surprisingly enjoyable without being too strong or hoppy. Sweet but not not too sweet with the hops and rye taking priority.

mouthfeel- slightly heavy with a hoppy taste that wasn't too overwhelming. Just enough carbonation that revealed a sweet, rye tasted

overall- Excellent beer. Although the description advertises this beer towards hop heads it is actually rather drinkable and appealing to the average beer drinker. The taste is is much more complex than Hops & Robbers but still very easy to drink and not too strong. I would recommend to anyone just starting to explore the diversity and complexity of craft beer. I would buy again!

473 mL can from the LCBO; no freshness info. I've been trying to find this one for a while, and finally happened upon it while browsing in London. Served slightly chilled.

Pours a hazy, deep amber-brown colour, topped with almost one finger of dense, creamy light beige-coloured head. Nice aroma; lots of citrusy grapefruit, floral notes with maybe a hint of wet pine. The underlying malts are harder to pinpoint, but a persistent nose might be able to pick out some brown sugar, toasted biscuits and spicy rye.

Great taste. Mild caramel sweetness, biscuity malts and rye bread combine to form a sturdy backbone, with the citrusy, pithy bitterness picking up mid-sip. Mostly grapefruit, with some leafy, piney bitterness and rye malt flavour in the finish, lingering on into the somewhat peppery aftertaste. Medium in body, with fairly light carbonation and a slick, smooth feel on the palate; sort of oily, like certain IPAs. This is a wonderfully balanced, delicious rye beer that I am particularly enjoying.

Final Grade: 4.01, a solid A-. This is the third Double Trouble beer that I've had the pleasure of trying, and definitely my favourite one so far. A welcome addition to the Ontario beer scene; this should provide some solid competition for Cameron's RPA - in a pinch I'd probably prefer the former rye beer, but Fire in the Rye comes in a more convenient format and is of similarly high quality. Not available locally at the moment, but you can bet I'll be grabbing cans on the regular if/when it does.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

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

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Pours a dark copper with three fingers of bubbly cream coloured head.

Smell - rye, caramel malts, earthy, floral, and leafy hops, and mild yeast notes.

Taste - Rye and caramel malts followed by the earthy, floral, and leafy hops. The mild yeast notes help to finish the brew off.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes sticky with a lingering bitterness from the hops.

Overall - A pleasant rye beer from the folks at Double Trouble. The hops are the star of the show while the rye and caramel malts are second in line.

Can > SA Sensory Pint

A - Clear amber brown with two fingers of off white foamy head, little lacing.
S - Toasted caramel malt, some nuttiness, pepper, pine and some dark earthy hops
T - The spice of the rye and the bitterness of the hops gets you, then in the middle you get a mild toasted grainy quality, the malt is more roasted and just provides the right amount of balance.
M - Kind of bitter and a little dry, but not overly so
O - Neat idea, could use a bit better execution, I'd rather see the toasted qualities come out in this more.
