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.

Clear gold; creamy white head; big juicy aromas of orange and other citrus fruits; dry and not suprisingly bitter. Wonderful Imperial IPA.

Pours a golden orange color with very little white head, no lacing. The smell is amazing, grapefruit, orange, citrus and slight pine. Slightly sour and bitter taste, medium body, easy drinking. Palate is suprisingly lively with a bit of alcohol but not enough for a full on buring aftertaste. Overall this is one of the best Double IPA’s I have had in a long while. Looking forward to more beers like this from Firestone Walker.

Pours a golden-amber with a persistent Imperial head. Aroma is a real doozy here--this brew has a depth of hop and malt aroma that is 3-dimensional compared with most other IPAs or even IIPAs. Smells like fresh, sticky green hops redolent of all manner of citrus fruit, herbs, and resinous pine balanced with bready, caramelly, and sweet malts. Body is full and creamy with initial caramel candy sweetness and balanced by a truly imperial hop profile. Dry hopping really is key here-- the aroma is far stronger than actual hop bitterness. Or maybe the intense hop bitterness is balanced by an equally exquisite malt body...either way, big props to the guys at Firestone Walker for crafting such a heavenly beverage!

Awesome beer. The aroma is citrus, peach, bread. The appearance is amber, white head. The flavor is citrus, caramel, flowers, bread. Very nice. Medium in body, slightly syrupy. The finish is pine, citrus and floral hops. Very nicely done.

Don’t get me wrong. This beer is great. Why is is great? ...................... Because it is a dead on clone of Pliny!!!! No wonder it won an award. I wouldn’t be surprised if Vinnie was involved brewing this. I understand why breweries copy Pliny but wouldn’t it suck if every double IPA you opened up and hoping for something original always tasted like Pliny? To me it is lame and unimaginative.

Pours amber with a nice off white head. Aroma is fresh, citrusy, piny hops. Flavor is full of spicy, grapefruit and citrus hops with a subtle sweet malt backbone. Very nice.

22 ounce bomber. Pours a relatively clear light amber tinged with orange. Intense hop aroma. Pineapple and citrus dominate, backed up by sweet pine. Caramel malts are off in the background. My mouth is watering from the aroma alone. Taste follows the aroma, with a wonderfully bitter finish. Mango and pineapple tropical hops coat the tongue first, with spicy and pine notes in the middle. Relatively high carbonation combines with caramel malt sweetness helps to balance things out, and the mouthfeel is full and creamy. The ABV never really shows up, as the hops cover things up nicely. This is one yummy and refreshing double IPA. Highly drinkable, especially considering the high ABV.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2012 Bottle. Amber with foamy off-white head. Citrus, grapefruit, nuts, herb, bread, pine, and caramel. Medium body with nice carbonation and silky and smooth finish. Well balanced, complex, not overvpowering and a different double IPA. Very good, especially when warm.
