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.

(22 oz. bottle from Candia Road Convenience) Pours hazy amber-orange with a finger or so of off white head. Big hoppy aroma - grapefruit and pine over vanilla. Mouthfeel smooth, medium-full, very lightly prickly, a bit sticky. Weepy dabs of lacing in the snifter. Flavor of big sweet grapefruit/citrus and lighter pine with vanilla and lighter caramel. Tasty, sweet and hoppy big IPA with lingering bitterness.

Draft. Had it before in a bottle but enjoyed it much more in tap. Minimal head that hangs on the side of the glass, loved it. Perfect balance

This pours with an golden orange color with a substantial frothy head that hangs around. The aroma is a little sweet with just a hint of the hops that are to come. The taste is slightly sweet with a hoppy bitter finish with a slight alcohol taste thrown in. A good hoppy beer.

Grabbed a growler for Thursday night poker game. Taste is malty, grassy, grapefruit, and other IPA deliciousness. You get caramel, and citrus. Its kinda sweet and just hoppy enough. pretty decent although drinking an entire growler probably wasn’t good idea.

Bomber from Holiday Wine Cellar ($7.99). Pours a clear orange-amber color with one finger of creamy white foam that has excellent retention, (not dissipating at all!). Aroma of sharp hops (grapefruit, tropical fruit, earthy resin) along with a nice balancing caramel maltiness. The initial flavor of intense hoppiness (resin, pine, bitter grapefruit) is soon followed by a good deal of honey-caramel malts and a hint of alcohol. Both lingering bitterness and sweetness lead to a pleasant finish. A very good and finely balanced DIPA. (466, 619)
