With over three pounds of Centennial hops per barrel, this double IPA has a slightly punishing yet entirely pleasing bitterness that dances on the tongue. Part of our seasonal series, Satisfaction Jacksin is available on tap and in six packs at your favorite Wisconsin craft beer outlet in the winter and spring.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2009 Draft at brewery. 8,3,8,4,16 - 3.9. Bronze to copper in color. Moderate off-white head. Big juicy grapefruit nose. Orange blossoms, and lightly toasted malt and caramel scents in the background. Flavors match closely with the aromas. A bit of grass and touch of acidity. A bit of resin and additional acidity in the finish and linger. Full feel. A touch fruity at times. Bottle Copper to umber in color with a taller, stable vanilla tinted head. Pine, brown sugar, caramel, grass grafefrui peel in the scent. Earthy malt in the front. Pine and grapefruit pith in the middle. Caramel in the finish. I seem to be catching hints of vodka, of the grainy ilk.

Growler from the brewpub - Man, DIPAs usually look beautiful in the glass, and this one is no exception. Itís a deep amber pour with a rosy hue and a big off-white head. Nose is big citrusy hops with some nice malt balance. Taste is fruity and malty, with some grassiness to go along with the citrus hops. Feels good in the mouth--resiny and citrusy. Not my favorite DIPA, but Iíd have this at AA if they didnít have Mercy on tap.

shigadeyo (3349) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2009

9/05/2009: Satisfaction Jackson... Aroma: Floral, red grapefruit, really nice bouquet. Appearance: Nice amber color; frothy light beige-colored head. Flavor: The red grapefruit hoppiness jumps out, also accompanied by some nice pine and floral notes; mild to moderate level of bitterness; just enough caramel maltiness to hold everything together and stay nicely tucked away in the background. Palate: Good, but average mouthfeel. Overall: Nicely done, but I could have done with a little more of everything!

Draught at Ale Asylum in Madison, Wisconsin. Rating #7 for this beer.

Pours a slightly hazey amber colour with a huge frothy head. Aroma is an instantaneous blast of pine and fresh floral hops. Firm, powerful and astringent hop character barreling through with grapefruit and zesty notes. Sturdy, stinky yet well balanced. Waayyy better then the Ballistic in my opinion.

Growler from Ale Asylum
Thanks go out to noncaloric for zipping a growler my way. I managed to miss this at the Great Taste somehow and regret it. In fact were I any closer I would making a trip to get more soon. Maybe some day soon this will be bottled so more people can give it a try.

Aroma / Appearance - The ruby red body was carbonated with a nice stark white head. Sharp and crisp it blends grapefruit with resin and caramel to form a hoppy bite.

Flavor / Palate - Hoppy at the beginning it does not mellow much but does balance out as the malt begins to settle on the palate. Resin and caramel are key aspects along with a mellow aftertaste. Not quite a hop bomb like many West Coast IIPAs it still has a whallop that challenges the palate.

Skyview (5345) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2009
On draught at both GTMW 09 and the brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear coper amber colored brew with a thin off-white head that has some nice retention and sticky lacing. Aroma of just plain hops! Grapefruit, tangerine, a hint of caramel and some apple cider. Taste is medium to full bodied, some carbonation with flavors of grapefruit, tangerine and some caramel. Finish is slightly dry, tart with a lingering grapefruit aftertaste. Overall, itís a solid double IPA.

$5 pint draft at the brewery. A hop head delight! Wow, the hops jump out in the aroma and the taste. The bitterness lingers well after it has gone down. Similar to Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Pours red-amber with a dense, creamy tan head, good retention, good lace as long as the head lasts. Strong hops aroma, citric, mandarin orange. Flavor similarly hops dominated. Slightly sweet, but the subtleties of the sweetness are completely blown away by the hops intensity. Hops and alcohol combine to make a very warm, lively mouthfeel.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2009
On tap at the GTMW. Amber with a medium tan head. Aroma is very floral - perhaps a double version of hopalicious - with some citrus, bready malt and caramel mixed in. Taste pretty much mimics the flavor with the floral and citrus hops pretty evident along with a decent amount of caramel malt. Mildly bitter and slightly abrasive, a decent but not otherworldly DIPA.
