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.

22oz Bottle, purchased at Conn Ave Liquors - Washington, DC. Big piney and catty nose, clean and herbal. Flavors are a solid build of green, piney, and vegetal hops. It gets a bit grassy and a little light on floral or tropical or fruity for me, but I like it. Whatís evident is the skill in composing and executing a well-balanced hoppy beer, something that so many breweries try to do and donít suceed, but that a California brewery like Firestone can handle deftly.

22 oz bottle from Pinocchios, Delaware Co. poured into a Duvel tulip. Orangish/amber body with a two-finger, off-white head, nice lacing and decent retention. Nose was grapefruit, pine, caramel. Taste was mildly bitter orange, floral, pineapple, grapefruit with a sweeter middle before being followed by a nice interplay between the sweetness, citrus and bitternes in the finish. Mouthfeel was smooth, medium in body and carbonation with a pleasing bitter bite to break up the sweetness. You notice the alcohol but would have no idea it was 9.5%. All-in-all a good DIPA I would not hesitate to try again. Thanks FW for coming to Philly!

My favorite style and this did not disappoint. Big citrus and pine aroma from a light amber pour with a small head. The flavor was rich with malt sweetness followed by a big hop bitterness that didnít let up. A wonderful after taste of citrus and pine. Great.

Lightly hazy dark golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, floral hops, pine, sweeter toffee, some toast. Taste of citrus, resiny pine, some sweet malts, with lots of resin, and grapefruit, with light alcohol as well.

I got to try a fresh bottle a few weeks ago. I poured it into a strait pint glass and it produced a three finger white billowy head that laced all the way down the glass. The body of the brew was a clear light liquid gold. The aroma was nothing but fresh hops right in your nose, nice and citrusí with a light grassy note coming through. As for the flavor it was what I expect in a west coast DIPA, hoppy bitter with a light malt sweetness. Again the flavor is tilted towards the hops so the hop head in me was quite pleased it was crisp and clean in the mouth making for a really enjoyable brew to drink. I will be grabbing another bottle when I see it fresh again. Serving type: bottle

Strong hops. Aroma is citrus and hops. Copper with a little lace. Very unique beer (in a good way).

Very strong hops and citrus notes. The grapefruit was hidden by the hops but were noticeable.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 22, 2011
transparent copper with a thick, lasting, large bubbled white head. Nose of sharp grapefruit, dusty malt and slight cardboard leading to a cat litter impression, light bit of heat behind. Flavor similar, more heat than nose, light paper and cardboard clashing more with c hops, overly oily finish with a bit too much paper, slight pine. Heat too apparent. Never comes together.

Awesome, super well balanced IIPA. Nice smooth building bitterness and sweet malt aroma and big mouthfeel. All around great.

BigBang (299) - Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2011
Aroma is bright citrus and pine. Great hop blend with just the right bitterness. ABV is very well hidden - dangerously smooth. Color is an orange ruby color with little head yet good lacing. One of the best DIPAs I have ever had.
