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 from Rehills, Newcastle. Pale golden coloured with a thin white head. It has a pineapple and orange flavour, malty and citrus notes followed by slight tropical fruit, pine and orange on the finish. Awesome!

Large Format - Orange color with a nice white head of foam. Has an almost weird smell to it, sweet, orange peel, caramel, almost like hard candy. Lots of hop flavor that hits you and lingers for a while. Flavor lingers on the palate and slowly dissipate. Flavor is very similar to the smell.

Bottle 65cl kindly shared by Calisky. A clear copper beer with good head. Nose is on exotic fruits, coconut oil and pine. Aroma is on blond caramel, very sweet, vanilla, coconut, almond, peach, mango, hops resin, alcohol is well hidden. Finish is very sweet, fruity and bitter, too much intense on my point of view.

SinH4 (944) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 23, 2015
Orange color with small white head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange, tangerine,/resinous, pine, caramel. Taste is more of these fruits, with a toasty malt body, a good amount of sweetness and a great bitter booze kick which fits perfectly! Oily mouthfeel. Top-notch material.

22 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Looks pretty. Just darker than a bright gold body with chunky lacing. Big distinct bubbles in the head, which doesn’t last all that long. Grapefruit upon grapefruit. The sweetness from the malt combines to make a slight peach smell. Bright citrus flavor of hops overwhelms a sweet malt backbone at first, but succumbs rather quickly. Ít doesn’t taste all that bitter to me. I think the caramel malts come through over the hops in the end and it actually finishes with a bit of a sweetness. Just a bit syrupy. Maybe a bit too thick for the style, but just barely. Medium to medium-low carbonation. Not quite world class, but a very delicious substitute when world class isn’t available.

Bottle at home. Clear orange with a big white head. Very nice blend of dank and fruity, piney aroma. Medium body, excellent hop flavour and fantastic bitterness. Great beer!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hopmaestro (454) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2015
Aroma is deep and rich from tangerines, citrus and pine. Taste is carried by a rather heavy backbone of malt and brings deep rich hops and grapefruits and orange sweetness. There’s a hidden sting from the alcohol underneath, just lingering below without really surfacing. A top notch Imperial IPA.
