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.

22oz bottle - Completely surprised that my local grocery store began carrying this, because quite frankly this is the type of store that caters to swill drinkers. Not to look a gift horse in the mouth (what an odd saying), I bought this and Speakeasy’s Double Daddy and enjoyed a Saturday evening at home. So, the beer pours out a brilliantly clear, golden yellow body, tight bubble stream and airy, light 1-finger white foam cap. Aroma is just a beaitiful display of fresh hop goodness. Juicy grapefruit abounds with a stunning showcase of fresh, floral hops, minimal malts and some showing of alcohol. The hops continue to pound the senses on the palate, with an onslaught of ripping, shredding, grapefruity hops. I haven’t had a palate wrecker like this in quite awhile, and it was a pleasure to consume. The malts seemed to relish in taking a backseat to the hops, which also seemed quite alright with being the star. So easy to enjoy and so easy to recommend. I think it’s a stellar example of a classic West Coast DIPA and couldn’t suggest this one enough. Kudos to Firestone Walker!! Job well done.

Vizuális síkon nemigen okoz csalódást, a krémes habja és narancstea-színű mézteste közötti kontraszt látványa már önmagában is megér egy misét. A karizmatikus illatok széles spektruma ront ránk hirtelen, így alkalmunk nyílik megcsodálni a vérbeli amerikai vonalat az illatok terén megjelenítő szikrázó komlós, fenyős-gyantás fergeteg pazar játékát. Férfi parfüm, tarka virágok, almás pite, méz és karamell szertelen aromái cifrázzák az élénk képet, gazdagsága szűnni nem akaró. A kortyok kirobbanóak, teltek, szépen strukturáltak, pontosak, de korántsem unalmas hangvételűek. Mértékletes, bodzaszörpös, karamelles, akácmézes édesség szövi körül a feszes szerkezetet, élénk és vibráló jegyeit nem győzzük csodálni. Közepesen száraz, nem kimondottan keserűség-orientált ital, a hangsúly sokkal inkább a mesterien kivitelezett, minden elemében magával ragadó, elmélyült ízvilág lebilincselő jellegére helyeződik. Boróka bogyós, sárgadinnyés lecsengéssel búcsúzik, karaktere emlékezetes marad, mintegy etalonként szolgál a műfaj egyéb képviselőinek vonatkozásában.

Pours a nice golden copper colour with a little white lacing and no head. Aroma of pine and lemon. Like a lot of beers it tastes like it smells. Pine and lemons it’s a real palate wrecker, but it’s pretty good.

Poured from a bomber to a pint glass, I am a big fan of the Firestone products and this did not disappoint. This one was hop filled, dry but in a mouth watering sort of way, and I had a hard time believing it is 9.5% until I caught a nice buzz from just a bomber.

High ABV, even for a DIPA. It seems dominated by resin hops and the flavor is a bit muddled, with less citrus than I would like. Good but not great... lacking subtlety.
