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.

Bottle: The aroma has lots sweet citrus and tropical fruit along with some light grapefruit. It pours a transparent amber with a small soapy white head. The flavor starts with sweet citrus, light tropical fruit, and a touch of caramel. The finish has notes of grapefruit and light floral hops. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Bomber from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear amber color with a medium frothy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of big spicy, floral, herbal hops, citrus notes in the back end and a good bit of toffeeish and toasted malt notes. The taste is strong bitter herbal hop notes, strong citrus and candied citrus, toffeeish malts, floral notes. Well balanced. Strong lingering bitterness. Almost chewy. Medium-full bodied. Very nice beer.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2011
bottle from Plaza at home 10Mar11 pours light caramel with a medium fluffy white head that leaves rings of lace through the pint. Aroma is tropical fruit and pine hop notes all the way. Smells fantastic with layers of juicy fruit. Flavor is pretty sweet upfront with toast, mandarin oranges and tangelos ending with a bitter toast/nut malt character and dry pine on the back of the throat. Really a highly quaffable beer that remains dry and light but packs a punch with flavor.

Draft at 1702. Pours clear orange/amber; 1-finger white head, spotty lacing. Nose is grapefruit, mandarin, apricot; lovely spicy pine resin notes here as well. Flavours of soapy pine, grapefruit, white peach flesh. Very juicy finish. Killer stuff. Would drink this daily were it available locally.

raphael (838) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Overall if this was a little better carbonated it would be excellent; a needed balance to the rich oiliness of the hops. High register hop aroma, citrus and pine. clear orange amber body but the the head faded in 30 seconds. Hops more resiny in flavor, along with a caramel, leather malt, alcohol well concealed. very clean finish.,

Dorwart (2341) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Strong head of varying sized bubbles with good carbonation. Unbelievable aroma. Loaded with fruit. Pineapple, oranges, pears. Like sniffing fruit cocktail. A hint of pine sap and sweet malts round out the fantastic aroma. Soft and smooth malty flavor. Some butterscotch, sweet malts, juniper berries and a hint of fruit late swallow. Prominent alcohol kick and presence. Body is a bit on the thin side so the alcohol really stands out. A slight bitterness which is not a strong as expected based upon the aroma. Finishes warm and smooth with a lingering bit of bitterness. An all around great IIPA!
