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.

TET (1573) - FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
An orange beer with a quite weak and blond head. The nose is sweet of fructose, lots of peaches, citrusfruits, also wet pine needles. The overally quite fresh even the sweetness, nice. Taste has sweet caramell, the slow bitterness dries the taste nicely. The bitterness is piney-herbal, not very aromatic but it attacks to strongly against the sweetness. Medium+ bodied, mild carbonation, not heavy. Quite sweet but still nice balance. This beer could be more aromatic, as like this the rough bitterness is dominating.

Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a pretty golden color with a very big head and decent lacing on the glass.

The aroma is quite a bit of juicy hoppiness wafting from the glass, melon & orange being the biggest players here. Very pungent & inviting.

The flavor is hoppy with lots of grass & grapefruit. The booziness is pretty forward & the bitterness is enjoyably high.

cool.

Sparkling, clear amber orange appearance. Small head that retains well. Grapefruit and orange flavors. Bitter hop finish is balanced by a honey sweetness.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Bomber. Pours a nice deep gold with a decent head and aromas of oranges and tropical fruit with some sweetness and a hint of pine. Flavor is sweet with an appropriate blast of citrus and tropical fruit. Mostly oranges to my palate with a little papaya and a hint of resin but very nice.

Koskela (273) - Marysville, California, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Basil malt hops and bread come from this orangeish hazy brew with a white head. Citrusy floraly hops with an earthy flavor jump over the maltieness then in the aftertaste maltieness takes over with a nice balance of hops. It’s medium bodied and has good carb. Not a bad brew

bastarda (44) - Freiburg, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2014
shared with bartlebier, his girlfriend and Bierle; very sweet, complex nose of melon, honey, bubblegum, and a perfectly layered taste with a strong, complex hop bitterness trickling through the orange-, dried apricot-, melon-, honey-sweetness right from the start. Great DIPA!

bartlebier (1540) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2014
65cl bottle courtesy of bastarda, post-Tristate tasting grill. Another Braufactum cooler import, complete with relabeling revisiting tasting notes ("Altgold"). Mellifluous honey palate transports aromas of wet bark, pineapple, bubblegum into a deeply embedded hop cocktail of same aromas, purified honey, marmeladed biscuit and mirabelle schnaps. Faints whiffs of alcohol and harsher simcoe wafts offset a perfectly lieblich composition to give it more of a street edge?

Maddog (385) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle from VA Beach Whole Foods. Big, malty and fruity. This IIPA is well balanced with a big malt body and a spicy hop finish. Some citrus. Huge. Not for wimps.

jonas (5595) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle. Huge leafy apricot aroma. Orange golden, golden low head. Full, light sticky mouthfeel. Flavor has a nice balance between honey, biscuit, dry berry notes and the peachy, piney, earthy and citric notes - great many dimensional hop bomb.
