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.

Garito793 (241) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2012
A truly superb Double IPA. Ar: Extremely hoppy (citrus) with a little bit of pine as well. Caramel malts are quite apparent as well. A very well-balanced brew. Ap: Pours an amber-orange with a nice, large white head. T: Grapefruit and other citrus hops, although certainly not the most bitter IPA. There is some sweetness here as well, though perhaps not as much as the aroma might suggest. P: Medium-to-heavy body.

Probada en Top Hops, Lower East Side, New York. La primera imperial IPA de Firestone Walker es sencillamente exquisita. Color dorado casi anaranjado. Sabor floral y cítrico, suave. Una gran IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour into Goblet, almost exactly three months since the bottling date. Pours with a nice small tan colored head that is not too foamy but appealing. Leaves a little lacing behind but it disappears rather quickly. Appearance is amber and clear. Aroma of orange/tangerine and grapefruit do stand out. Taste is sweet and definitely malt forward going in, but it quickly gives way to a nice bitter and salty flavor. This beer has a medium body, creamy sticky texture, average to soft carbonation with a long bitter finish. Overall this is a very nice double IPA and I will surely drink it again on a special occasion.

cmacklin (451) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2015
12fl.oz. bottle. Pours a clear, golden orange with a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Fruity, hoppy aroma of grapefruit, tangerine, peach and caramel malt. Sweet fruity flavour of grapefruit, peach, pine and caramel malt with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. An excellent IIPA.

A really good IIPA, though a bit maltier than I prefer. Pour is orange, nice white head, nose is overwhelmed by pine and bitter citrus. Taste is sweet for the style, merging with piney hops for a tropical fruit effect: mango, pineapple, caramel and orange. Some booze, but balanced, and bitter finish. Very nice but I actually prefer the regular Union Jack.

hohops (553) - Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle. Appearance- amber and reasonably clear, some carbonation, a two-finger beige/off-white head which leaves some lacing. Aroma- pine, pineapple, mango, blood orange, citrus fruit, fruit juice, yeast, hops. Taste- bitter hops dominate, orange peel and pineapple juice, pine, juicy hop resins, malty undertones with hints of caramel and bread. Oily and clingy in the mouth, and a nice understated bitter finish. Excellent.

flying_pig (1166) - SCOTLAND - AUG 17, 2015
355ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow:
This one from Firestone Walker was quite a hoppy & very strong tasting beer with huge amounts of pine, grapfriut & tropical fruits before some nice caramel sweetness appeared towards the end. Despite the strength & some alcohol showing, it was easier to drink that expected & the balance was good as well with a dry, lingering bitter finish. Another excellent beer from the brewery & some well worth looking out for.

Great aroma. There's a slight citrus scent to it. Maybe an orange or grapefruit. Upon tasting, it's certainly grapefruit. It's not obnoxious, but the finish has on obvious grapefruit bitterness. I like this one. It has a nice hoppiness to it and it sits well on the palate. I would get this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
