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.

Smooth aftertaste to this highly bitter IIPA. This is a well-rounded drink, with strong pine and sticky hop mouthfeel. Strong.

On tap this brew pours out a medium amber color with a nice fast disappearing head. Aromas of hops grapefruits along with other citrus fruits and roasted malts. Tastes surprisingly mellow considering itís a double i p a. Semi sweet finish with a nice lingering aftertaste, very little alcohol presence .

Bottle. Light amber with generous off white head that disappears fairly quickly after the pour. Grapefruit, hops, booze, caramel; medium-bodied, good mouthfeel, well carbonated, starts sweet, growing bitterness but not overwhelming, finish is sweet and bitter, somewhat boozy. Decent DIPA but a little too sweet for my liking.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale Łber alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Bottle on 12/17/10 from az wine. Slightly hazy orange colored pour with a toasted off white head. The nose is full of candied grapefruit mixed with pineapple, orange, sweet malt, florals and a touch of pine. The flavor is pretty much the same though a bit on the sweet side. Woodiness shows up on the finish along with a ton of hoppiness (which lingers as piney in the aftertaste) to dry it out. The mouth feel is a little syrupy before the hops kick in. medium/medium-full bodied, soft and lux but mildly bitter. 7.5/3/7/3/16/3.7

Pours crystal clear. Light amber. Creamy head. Nose: Wonderful citrus hops explode from the glass. Palate: Medium body, flavorful, very citrusy/lemony hops, warm alcohol, but not harsh, finishes dry for a double. Conclusion: Imperial IPAís are not my favorites, however Firestone walker did a great job ballancing this big boy.Itís a solid imperial; Firestone Walker does not make bad beer!

Pours amber. Medium quite frizzy head. Aroma is absolutely faboulus. Shitloads of hops. Apricots, citrus, and mango (?!?) Medium bitterness. Perfectly smooth finish. The best IPA Iíve had together with Pliny the Elder.

beerfest5 (1147) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 17, 2011
A very enjoyable dipa the only thing is that it is overly grapefruity which makes the beer very sticky in itís palate. Instead of wanting to drink more, you find yourself wanting a glass of water. the color is very appetizing and besides the overwhelming grapefruit taste, this is one of the better dipaís Iíve had.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Pours mid to dark amber with notes of bitter citrus fruit. The citrus becomes more pronounced on the palate and the malt ties in a nice yin to the bitterness of the hops yang. Big long finish for a great DIPA.

Double Jack Pours perfectly clear copper with a medium white head. Strong aroma of hops and booze with hints of caramel malt. Flavor is bittersweet caramel and hops. Strong bold flavor with booze and citrus. Holy hops this one is strong. Hopheads must love this. Very good
