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.

On draft at Capones. Pours a clear deep orange vistalite color with a medium sized frosty off white head. Aroma of fresh grapefruit, oranges, tropical fruit notes, Juicy Fruit gum, tons of hops and malt. Taste is much the same as the aroma. Bitter, hoppy, citrusy and well balanced.

Dark gold color, beautiful head retention and lacing. Has wonderful citrus hop aroma, tangerine and caramelized pineapple. texture on the tongue is creamy and velvety. The hops in this beer are definitely used more for flavor and aroma than for bittering. Simply a wonderful beer, beautifully representative of the style.

Bomber from Capone’s. Pours dark straw toward freshly minted copper penny with 2-finger frothy white head. Nose is HUGE resiny tropical fruity feety hops, pineapple, tangerine, honeydew, black pepper, Tastes rich, very caramel malty, with a huge IBU load, tons of tropical fruit, big peppery notes. Reminds me a bit of Sculpin. Gets a bit hot late, but just drips with hop juice, and this one is in the top 1% of IBU values, but with wnough malt to balance the hops. This one is great, and even more bitter than Rosie O’Donnell after she finds out that they sold the last butter-slathered lobster at Legal Seafood.

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2011
Pours clear orange with nice lasting white head. Aroma has notes of tangerine, watermelon, melon, some mango and tropical fruit, some slight caramel. Taste is full and delicious, with notes of tangerine, melon, some tropical fruit including papaya, with a sweet caramel malt middle, finishing fairly bitter, lasting. Excellent IIPA, but a little sweet for me.

Very well balanced malts and hops. Great aroma. Sweet citrusy and caramel. Reminds me of DFH 90 minute, but a little heftier.

abcfan (819) - New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2011
My pallet was not prepared for the absolute bitterness of this brew. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Huge piney hop aroma. Taste is very bitter hop with a nice caramel malt balance, with a bitter alcohol finish. Good stuff.

Bomber. Clear, deep golden body. Frothy, white head, slowly diminishing. Big nose of grapefruit, resin, pine, sweet caramel. Some toasted grain, leafy hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and moderately bitter. It finishes moderately to heavily bitter and moderately sweet. Medium to full body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation. Warming alcohol in the finish. Taste of citrus, grapefruit, floral hops. This is not as crisp, clean as some double iPAs, but it is thick and rich and well balanced. Thanks Randy.

Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours clear orangish amber color with off white head. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerines and some caramel malts. Lots of citrus hop flavor balanced with sweet caramel malts. A little heat from the alcohol. Medium to full body with average carbination. A really nice DIPA. Thanks Craig.
