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.

Beaver (1407) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 15, 2011
22oz bottle. Pours a clear golden orange with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is floral, piney, resiney hops with some fruit.

The flavor is a little sweet malt and melon with a big piney, peppery, resinous hop finish. Lots of bitterness that lingers in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a monster onedimensional hop bomb. This is much more bitter in the bottle than on draft. This and the Union Jack remind me a lot of Odell’s IPA - very similar flavor profile.

mensch (264) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Very pale colored, lacy white head. Aroma of citrus masks some of the Simcoe(Amarillo?) oniony smell. Smooth spicey/sweet toffee flavors, very rich with many layers. Long lasting bitter hops rule the finish. Very nice, a little understated for a double.

Westmeister (1983) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Bottle poured into a stemless wine glass. Pours a darkish peach with an offwhite head. Smell is of sugary citrus notes with a known malt backing. Taste hides the 9.5% very well inside the citrus hops (tropical, orange zest and some grapefuit). As it warms more and more powerful notes come out. Great, great brew. Too bad can’t have it in Georgia.

wxman (1522) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Pours a golden color with a slight haze. Respectable white head that laces the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine cones. Taste is a rock candy like sweetness of pale malt, grapefruit and pine once again, and a profound robust hop bitterness. Well balanced though, with ABV barely showing.

anders37 (18726) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity piney hoppy grapefruit aroma. Sweetish malty hoppy bitter grapefruit flavor. Has a sweetish malty hoppy bitter pieny grapefruit finish.

On draft. Very dark bar, hard to tell the color. Looked orange with an off white head. Orange, pinapple, mango and some sweeter citrus on the nose. Taste is fantastic! Sweet orange, mango, pineapple, ripe peach flavors balance out the hop bitterness perfectly. This was a bitter double ipa, but the citrus and tropical fruit balances everything out nicely. Medium body with just enough carbonation to accent both bitterness and fruit flavors. Dangerously drinkable. This is a world class DIPA! Very impressed with this one.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2011 Bottle. No date on the bottle so it was pretty much a shot in the dark. Appearance: Brown pour with decent white head and nice lacing. Aroma: Earthy and leafy hops upfront, lots of grass but not so much fruit. I love it. Taste: I get the earthy hops again, but I detect much more malt (Caramel) and the alcohol is present but nicely integrated. Palate: Solid mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Overall: Exactly my type of IIPA, we got lucky on this one this was pretty fresh.

thirdeye11 (5725) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2011
(22oz bomber thanks to BMan1113VR) clear rich orange with soapy tan bubbles. Nose of mango, pineapple and its rind, a bit dank and more citrus rind. Taste of pineapple, mango, papaya, guava, sweet and delicious! An amazing DIPA.

KapitiCritique (367) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - AUG 11, 2011
AROMA: citrus, resin, not piney at all by the way, malty too; APPEARANCE: light orange, medium head gone quickly, very even fine lacing; TASTE: bitter, a touch sour, oxidises to a nice mellow sweet taste; PALATE: creamy-ish, a little spritzy, medium to full body; OVERALL: Its good.

Pours a amber orange with a white head. Aroma is resiny, citrus and spicey. Taste is a perfect combo of bittersweetness. Mouthfeel is sticky. A premier IPA, thanks to chalsk for this one.
