From Double Trouble Brewing Co.,

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.

Appearance |  Amber orange with an off white head.

Smell | Earthiness, bread, orange, and lemon.

Taste | Pineapple, lemon, orange, bread, toffee malts, honey, and hops.

Aftertaste | Lingering notes of bitterness and fruits.

Overall | Hops & Robbers Extra Delicious IPA is a fantastic IPA starter for those who are trying India Pale Ales for the first time.  It’s not overly hoppy or bitter like some of its IPA counterparts.  In fact, this medium-bodied brew would make a great session brew, expertly balanced with hops and citrus notes. While the name conjures nostalgia for the days of child’s play, this brew is certainly not one that is just meant for amateurs- even the most cultivated beer guzzler can find some pleasure in this indulgence! Nathan and Claude were right, this is refreshingly delicious.
