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

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

Looks and smells great, very warm start smooth and then the bitter finish kind of jumps out at you. Not terrible

Got this one from the LCBO this past summer.

From a 16oz can into a snifter
60 IBU
Centennial hops

APPEARANCE: Pours a two finger, medium looking, creamy, off-white head with great retention. Hazy, burnt orange with medium levels of carbonation. Head slowly fades to a foamy cap and leaves chunky lacing down the sides of the glass. A slight wisp remains leaving some dots of lacing.

SMELL: Caramel, light floral hop notes and some grapefruit aromas. A hint of spice from the rye perhaps. Medium strength.

TASTE: Touches of caramel and spicy rye up front, then a medium but lingering finish of bitter grapefruit, caramel sweetness, spicy rye and some bubble gum notes. Rye adds a nice, lightly spicy touch to the bitter-sweet pale ale.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy enough, goes down fine and finishes a touch mouth-coating. Some bitterness lingers on the palate. Could be a hint creamier and drier perhaps.

OVERALL: This is nice. The rye addition works and adds a nice addition to the lightly bitter-sweet pale ale. A drinkable and enjoyable brew that works great on a warm summer’s day.

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.
