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.

Served from a bottle from OTM. The appearance is a slightly hazed golden hue with a great white head. The flavors and aromas are creamy with oranges and kumquats, a great malty backing. The mouth is wonderfully creamy with a lower carbonation. Excellent DIPA. .

Very clean drinkable Double IPA. The malts are quite present and almost mask some of the good hop flavor. Not bitter at all which would have been welcome. Overall its a great introductory level Double IPA but if you have a palate for more hop forward DIPA’s then you may not enjoy this one quite as much.

750ml bottle. Gold amber pour, very clear with a big fluffy head. Aroma was packed with citrus, grapefruit and hops. Flavor was very earthy and dry with a nice malt backing. A straight forward in your face DIPA. A very good showing.

[Bottle] Clear golden appearance, good head formation and retention. Spicy hop and lemon citrus aroma, a little peppery. Slight oiliness on the palate, medium bodied with quite a bit of fizz. Sweet lemon citrus and biscuity malts in fron half and a big grapefruit bitter finish that lingers well into the aftertaste.

22oz bottle: Pours a clear copper with a one finger ivory head. The head dissipates quickly but there is still good lacing. The aroma is citrus driven with some sweeter notes, like orange. The taste is a little malty with some biscuit flavor. The palate is medium and well suited for the style. The is a very good beer overall bu there are a handful of better DIPA around.

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. This beer is gorgeous and very clear. Color is amber gold with an off white head that is thick and frothy. Aromas are of citrus, but not harsh, with mild grapefruit and tangerine notes. Tastewise, this one is a winner, with such a great balance, malts nor hops overwhelm, but they really shine. The flavors are spruce, and citrus with a nice clean bitter (but not too) finish. Goes down very easy, and the ABV is very well hidden. Palate is medium with a nice medium finish and lively carbonation. Overall, one of the best DIPA I have had in a while......very well done.

Clear gold; creamy white head; big juicy aromas of orange and other citrus fruits; dry and not suprisingly bitter. Wonderful Imperial IPA.

Pours a golden orange color with very little white head, no lacing. The smell is amazing, grapefruit, orange, citrus and slight pine. Slightly sour and bitter taste, medium body, easy drinking. Palate is suprisingly lively with a bit of alcohol but not enough for a full on buring aftertaste. Overall this is one of the best Double IPA’s I have had in a long while. Looking forward to more beers like this from Firestone Walker.

Pours a golden-amber with a persistent Imperial head. Aroma is a real doozy here--this brew has a depth of hop and malt aroma that is 3-dimensional compared with most other IPAs or even IIPAs. Smells like fresh, sticky green hops redolent of all manner of citrus fruit, herbs, and resinous pine balanced with bready, caramelly, and sweet malts. Body is full and creamy with initial caramel candy sweetness and balanced by a truly imperial hop profile. Dry hopping really is key here-- the aroma is far stronger than actual hop bitterness. Or maybe the intense hop bitterness is balanced by an equally exquisite malt body...either way, big props to the guys at Firestone Walker for crafting such a heavenly beverage!
