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.

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.

(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.

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.

Bright copper colored pour. Started out with a sizable white head, but it fades quickly and leaves a little bit of lacing. Big hoppy, citrusy aroma. Some malt in there too. Big malty taste with a big bitter bite. Sweet and tangy. Grapefruit and flowers. Very nice bitterness lingers, mixed with a carbonic dryness and a nice sweet mouth feel. Very good IIPA.

BiddleBrau (1019) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2011
clear darker golden with nice dense white head leaving a hint of lacing. Nice citrus nose, faint pine, slight malt sweetness. Full palate coats the tongue with sharp hop bitterness. Malt provides balance but it’s hops and slight warming alcohol. Big and hearty and tons of flavor. Not for novices or wusses. Would be a great brew to sit back with on a chilly fall night.

Pours a one finger white head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Crystal clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Grapefruit nose, flavor is same almost sweet grapefruit, dry finish. $8.75 for a 22oz bottle from Bert’s Better Beers Hooksett, NH.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2012 The pour is a sparkling clear, pale orange with a moderately full, white, creamy, frothy head which settles to a frothy layer throughout and leaves frothy, drippy lace. The nose is very fragrant, very citrusy and spicy; lots of pepper, white grapefruit and faint passionfruit, some green hops, leafy hops, and a slight honeyed malt background. The flavor is similar but turning a bit herbal (maybe basil, as the description suggests?), still grapefruit and tangerine, pepper everywhere almost chile pepper-esque, some honeyed cereal notes underneath, and a nearly high bitterness. The palate is nearly lively, nearly full, creamy, sticky, and oily. The beer finishes with the peppery spice almost seeming warm, bitter herbal notes, slight resin, and similar citrus notes still keeping from a dry IIPA. My first experience with Firestone and I was pleasantly surprised. Very different from other IIPA’s, lots of peppery spice but minimal dryness, a pleasant malt base but still a nearly high bitterness, and very high herbal notes but still quite drinkable. The palate worked very well for me with just enough carbonation and body as well as a mixture of mouthfeel textures that was just nice. I am surprised by this one, the citrus calmed the intense pepper, the pine/resin notes were minimal which kept the dryness low, and somehow the herbal notes only added nice complexity. Very nice surprise.

Sampled in a big bottle. Pours deep brown with a thick head on it. The hops are very fresh and leave a bit of a taste in the mouth. A very good brew.
