Notes / Commercial Description:
Hops and Robbers was formulated with two great friends who share a passion for Craft beer, conversation, stealth missions (Finding great beer on tap) and travel. Nathan and Claude have always been looking for the next big score for IPA’s, so we decided to produce our own beer for the local market that had a great balance, aroma and 50 IBU’s!

This is golden IPA with an exceptionally rich and complex character. Fruity aromas of lemon with hints of pineapple combine crisply with toasty caramel flavours and a tasty malt backbone. Dry hopping with cascade hops ensures more hop aromatics are retained in the finished beer. Made with pride and panache, Double Trouble Brewing’s flagship brand Hops & Robbers is refreshingly delicious.

A very refreshing IPA! Mild hop flavour with a strong pineapple taste and hints of citrus, grapefruit, and orange. The fruity flavours make this a great session IPA and a perfect beer for those who are new to exploring the taste of craft beer. Not too overwhelming with a nice balance between hoppy and fruity.

16oz can into a pint glass. Poured a hazy golden with a lush white head that resolved into a sicky lace. The nose is immediately citrus with piny notes of hops. The first sip is the usual whack of hops (somewhat more subdued in the English style) and the sweet toffee malt in a very pleasing balance, but the star of this show is the rich background of citrus and stone / tropical fruit. Perhaps it's the mild profile of the hops and malt that allow the fruit to shine through, dunno, but it results in a very well balanced beer that doesn't quite taste like every other IPA out there. And that's a good thing.

This is a really good "light" IPA. Or as we might call it, a good session IPA. Nice thick head, foamy, frothy, good lacing. Nice citrus ping and quite hoppy. Total winner in my book. I buy it now and then as a change from a heavier IPA like Boneshaker.
