COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Jack IPA is our first ever Imperial IPA. It features a big malty middle to cloak the high alcohol and mouth puckering hop bitterness. Huge tangerine, grapefruit and juicy fruit aroma blossom over the herbal blue basil and malt earthiness of this aggressive beer. Best enjoyed in moderation.

Bottle. Aroma is dominated with hops straight away, loads of pine, grapefruit, citrus. Taste is the same, little bit of biscuit, long lasting taste of lemon, grapefruit, pine. Medium carbonation, really smooth, oily texture. Very easy drinking. Lovely stuff.

From a bottle. Pours light amber with minimal head and no lacing. Aroma is of pine, malt and earthy notes. Taste is hoppy with a malt, resin backbone and slight alcohol warmth. Palate is primarily hoppy. A phenomenal DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great aroma. A little cloudy. But, oh, that taste! Desireable on the palate- overall a very drinkable 9.5% delicious beer from Firestone Walker.

rosenbergh (7515) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2015
12 oz bottle. Bottled on 09/25/14. From saveur-biere.com.
Cloudy orangey golden colour with a mid-size foamy white head. Delicious aroma of fruits... orange, tangerine and grapefruit. Juicy hops, moderate bitterness, sweetness, caramel and malt in the aroma. Yummy! The flavour is moderately bitter, fruity, resiny and piney hoppy and candy sweet. Heady, tasty and delicious. An excellent DIPA.

22 oz bottle. Aroma: malty, piney, and citrusy, with hints of barnyard, and resin. Taste/Palate: crisp and somewhat sweet; finishes with a long bitterness.

Aroma: Citrus, pine, fresh. Appearance: Bright, crystal clear, golden, orange. Gorgeous, thick, creamy, white, three finger head (bad pour) that disappeared slowly. Taste: Citrus front-end, earthy, raisins, bitter hops. Slight tinge of alcohol in the finish. Palate: Fresh front-end that dissipates quickly into a mouth tightening bitterness. Overall: I poured this 12 oz. bottle into a glass in which I like to drink beer. Had big hopes for this beer. It was solid, just not what I was hoping for and drank much less than my 3.7 rating. RateBeer member Niksko summed it best, "Classic american IPA flavours (sic...he’s from Melbourne), turned up to 11." #respectbeerbrethren

Bottle @ home. Light yellow amber, clear, fine white head. Hoppy nose. Taste caramel, heavy hop, but boozy. Balanced, nice.
