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.

Reviewed On: (6/22/14): *Glassware: IPA Tulip *Serving: 22 oz *Aroma: citrus, grapefruit, pine, tangerine, tropical fruits *Appearance: Pale Amber with a four finger head. The head has tons of fizzy big bubbles. The head color is off-white. It slowly receded to two fingers of head. Lots of carbonation streaming up to the head is probably why it stayed the way it did. After consuming the beer, a minor amount of lace was left behind. *Taste: Sweet malt upfront, citrus/grapefruit in the middle, and finishes off w/ a pine taste. *Palate: Medium body, oily mouthfeel, lively carbonation on the tongue. Finishes off very dry and bitter. *Overall: A well balanced and crafted Imperial IPA. It has the maltiness, bitterness, and dryness an Imperial IPA should have. An excellent offering from on of my favorite breweries.

"i was told this is an imperial version of Union Jack, which I’ve yet to have, but now may have to find. another very solid entry into the IIPA catergory. sweet fruity estery pine aroma, bittersweet grapefruit flavor. decent body - similar a bit, but thinner than Hop Henge. good stuff, easily the best FSW beer I’ve had to date. 2/11 gotta up it a tenth after holding up so well to the other great dipas at the festival. overall up to a 9."

Excellent XXIPA. Hoppy aroma and peppery hoppyn bitterness. Some alcohol catches me off guard. Overall great beer and will have again. Oh BTW it was in 12 oz bottle

Wow. Great flavor. Enjoyed the balance. Slight alcohol on palate but not over powering. Loved the pour. Always enjoy Firestone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

spokeydonkey (18) - somerville, New York, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Pours a bright gold and clear with a quickly receding white head. Aroma is caramel and lemon-centered. Taste starts off caramel sweet with citrus and stone fruit behind it. Finishes sweet with lingering bitterness. Medium-heavy bodied with a lot of sticky sweetness. A little alcohol heat, but it’s hidden behind the sweetness. Overall: Decent, but a bit too much on the sweet/caramel side to be really drinkable. The finish especially is sweet and a little syrupy rather than crisp and dry. A good DIPA, but not one of the more drinkable ones.

Es una cerveza de color naranja dorado con una grande y cremosa espuma blanca. Su aroma es de mandarina, pomelo y fruta jugosa. Cuerpo Maltosa y sensación alcohólico en el paladar. Tiene una amargura muy intensa. Es una cerveza impresionante.

esox (1095) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Bottled. Cloudy pale amber color, creamy head. Caramel infused resiny aroma, sweet floral notes and fresh peach juice, slightly acidic grapes. Heavy maltiness with plenty of caramel flavor, but not sweet. Bitterness could be stronger, but this was an aged individual. Highly resinous finish. Almost full bodied, frothy texture is fresh. Very good!
