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.

This is in my estimation the best IPA available on the east coast. Pours murky amber with a white head. Leafy green hop aromas. Flavors of cirtus, hops and a sweet malty backbone. Very balanced. Coats the palate with hops. Absolutely awesome!

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2013 Pours a translucent orange with a fair white head and smells of cat piss, orange blossom, and a bit of pine. This IIPA is fantastic. Very citrusy (grapefruit and lemon) with a bit of pine in the background. It isnít heavy in the least. Thereís a very refreshing quality to it that makes it a great summer option. I love this beer. Itís a true gem and far superior to many other IIPAs that have a higher price point. Iíd like to drink it next to Pliney and some of my other IIPA favorites, because I suspect it would match up nicely.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2011 Bomber thanks to Dak. About 3 months old, March 2011 bottling. Pours a crystal clear copper color with a large white head and some lacing. A sweet citrus and orange peel nose. The flavor is reminiscent of some of George Brettís bats, huge pine resin; sweet candied oranges, resin, bitterness, pine, massive fruit, some pears and more oranges. Super drinkable and has that addictive sweet hop profile that the top IIPAs have. Honestly, I could drink a few pints of this and get smashed. Had a second bottle, bottled on 3/14/11 drank in mid-June. Huge oranges and massive flavor. Awesome.

Pours a crystal clear, I mean super duper clear orange yellow color with a nice white head. This has to be the clearest IPA Iíve ever seen, a full 5 points on appearance. Aromas are delicious citrus and floral hops. The taste is a very well balanced hoppyness leaning more toward the hoppy side than the malty side. Very impressive beer from Firestone walker.

Oh my, what delicious and glorious Ale! This is strong! Very strongÖ. This is strong like one of my best girlís glorious butt cheeks who liked to go to the gym and do specific exercises to make her lower portions meaty and strong! Oh how she would show off while we were together. She would often put on an LP of Louis Prima after she had bathed and oiled her magnificent frame and would go about a posing routine while we enjoyed fine Ale and the smooth sounds of the great Louis Prima. While this beer is powerful, it does not take away from the wonderful fruits and hay like flavor that this beer delivers. I would love to drink this beer often but it is strong like bull and would lead to a larger tolerance which would not be conducive to my normal routine of fine Ale and my best girlís activities of love and valor. I have had many special beers but I must say that this is above the normal Ales that conjure up a fine appetite for love and food. This Ale is worth the additional price should it squeeze your wallet just a bit.

Draft at Rustico - Alexandria. Poured a dark copper color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was citrus hops - full of tropical pineapple, tart fruits, grapefruit especially. Flavor was big on malt, hops not nearly as powerful in the taste. A bit oily, though body wasnít too heavy. Alcohol peaks its head out and says "hi!"

THOUGHTS: Wow. Nothing earth shattering, but perfectly crafted. Hid alcohol very well. Extremely easy to drink for something this big. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a light orangey amber with an average, off-white head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma had moderate to heavy cookie, caramel, sugar, candy; lighter molasses; moderate to heavy resin, citrus, orange, tropical fruit and earthy hops; a little maple syrup; and alcohol. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and light to moderately bitter; while the finish was rather sweet and rather to heavily bitter with a long duration. There was caramel, tropical fruits, apricot, citrus, tons of caramel-coated fruit, a perfect blending of sweet and bitter; toast, cookie, candy, candied tropical fruit, and definitely some grapefruit tang at the end. The very close to full body was oily and then dry with lightly fizzy, but very tingly, carbonation and a dry and lightly alcoholic finish.

Hoppy and delicious flavor; full hop profile, bitter but not overwhelmingly so. I had a glass of this outside on a warm summer evening and found it very refreshing. The aroma was quite interesting, something reminding me of trees and the forest, but also some hints of fruit.

Nose is heavy on the pine and resin, slightly grassy, grapefruit and some melon, crisp grains and light caramel, solid dose of alcohol. Pours a very clear golden color with fluffy white head, good retention and lots of lacing. Flavor: nice robust hop character, pine and grapefruit, stiff bitterness, sticky resin. Nice malt profile, caramel and some residual sweetness, noticeable alcoholic bite but not overly distracting. Medium body and carbonation, slightly slick sweetness, crisp and bitter aftertaste.
