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.

Tonkun (755) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2012 Bottle. Amber with foamy off-white head. Citrus, grapefruit, nuts, herb, bread, pine, and caramel. Medium body with nice carbonation and silky and smooth finish. Well balanced, complex, not overvpowering and a different double IPA. Very good, especially when warm.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Bottle… Clear amber ale with orange highlights and a small, ultra-sheer, white head. The nose provides earthy pine and cat piss as the aromatic foundation for a ton of citrusy pink grapefruit. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with modest carbonation. The flavor presents intense, major-league bitterness - grapefruit rind and pine. Lengthy, lightly malty, violently bitter finish that bites hard and doesn’t release any time soon. Bottle provided by darkguardian!

Bottle. Pours clear amber with an average, frothy and bubbly white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is average/heavy malt (bread, cookie, cereal, caramel), heavy hops (floral, perfume, pine, citrus), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of peach and apricot. Flavor is average/heavy malt (bread, cookie, cereal, caramel), heavy hops (floral, perfume, pine, citrus), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of alcohol, peach, and apricot. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation with a slightly creamy texture and then a drying finish.

Pours a clear golden/copper color with a tightly bubbled white head that gets sticky. Pine and grapefruit pine and grapefruit. Little bit of tropical fruit and hints of malty caramel deep underneath. Curiously after a couple of sips the head disappeared and the aroma really changed. I get lots of pineapple and lemon with hints of alcohol. Taste is bitter and resinous with just enough of a bready caramel malt base to keep this drinkable. Finish is a bit dry with a long lingering resinous aftertaste long after each sip. Creamy oily mouthfeel, medium level of carbonation, medium to thin body. This is a big hoppy monster, bordering on harshly bitter. I enjoyed this I’m glad I got to try this, but I’ve enjoyed other DIPA’s more.

Clear golden with off white faded head, little lively, little viscous, semi laced.. Dominant grapefruits and orange aroma with a smattering of pale malts sweetness and light alcohol aroma... Fruity pebbles, fresh hops, light alc, piney, woody, citrus fruits, complex hops with notes of sweet malts behind... Lively medium full body, not creamy... Awesome...

Very clear golden copper in color with a big frothy head that is off white. Strong retention. Delightful citrus aroma that also has pine and caramel. Flavor is delightful, too. Big citrus fruit and pine. Toasty malt and brown sugar. Very well balanced and very well crafted.

kassner (1338) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2011 This is a great DIPA, just what I like, with plenty of aromatic hops, fragrance and taste, mellow and no off notes at the end. golden color, modest head that does not hold and little lacing but the taste is great. 11/11 again this time on tap at RFD’s. still Great

LinusStick (2814) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2011
WOW! A definite 4+ beer. This beer is a reminder that, when done right, IIPAs can be incredible! Aroma was perfect heavy citrus, grapefruit rind and lemon zest. Pour was a nice medium gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was all west coast IIPA. Strong, bitter grapefruit rind and citrus hops are in the front and not leaving any malt in to balance out the bitterness. Medium carbonation keeps the beer lively. Mouth is left dry and bitter and it lasts a long time. Amazing beer!
