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.

PotjeBier (2105) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2015
12 oz bottle. Bottled 11 June 2015, enjoyed 16 September. Clear deep golden to orange color. Off white, uneven head. Aroma’s: piney, citrus, soft fruit, with a malty backbone. Retronasal it’s caramellish, malty, resinous, herbal. Flavor is rather bitter with quite a bit of sweetness and light fruity sourness. Rather strong alcohol feel, warming. Medium bodied. Finish is rather bitter (could have been a bit more bitter, but maybe it was when it was really fresh).

Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Pours amber with a big frothy cream head. The aroma is big,p and juicy with plenty of pineapple especially.

Golden hue with a lacey white head. Sweet caramel nose with a hint of peaches. A battle between sweetness & bitterness, this beer melds the two perfectly. Sticky toffee pudding vs. pineapples & limes. Lovely. Rated by BrewTom

A harsh and unforgiving ipa. Probably a billion ibus, but who can really tell. Dentist-trip inducing acidity balanced by a really sweet maltiness. Not beer for the faint of heart.
