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.

Gold, thin white head. Sweet, floral nose...a bit of citrus, tangerine. Mild bitterness, mixed with pineapple. Bitterness lingers, but didn’t overpower. Moderate carbonation.

This is perhaps the best double IPA I have ever tasted. Literally smells like fresh pineapple juice. Pineapples blasting you in the face the whole time. Beautiful color on this one. The taste is out of this world. It’s just so fresh. Pineapple, orange, grapefruit just dominate it. Nice malt backbone that’s not too sweet just right. Firestone Walker is an excellent brand, I’m completely hooked.

Bottle. Very clear golden pour. Pure white head which just about lingers to the finish. Deep rich pine and grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit and hop bitterness taste very well balanced and smooth. 9.5%abv is really well hidden. Excellent specimen

Barwa: złocista, klarowna. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, średniej wielkości, ładnie oblepiająca szkło [5/5] Aromat: słodowy (zbożowy, herbatnikowy i nieco karmelowy) z dominującym akcentem chmielowym (melon, cytrusy, zioła). Niestety trochę mniej przyjemnych naleciałości chmielu zielonego, łodygowego również obecnych, alkohol natomiast nieźle ukryty. [4,5/5] Smak: słodowy, słodki i pełny, z wytrawną chmielową kontrą. Goryczka nieco powyżej średniej, ale przyjemna i niezalegająca. Następne piwo, na które zapolowałem w Żywcu i z tego co widziałem rozchodziło się, jak przysłowiowe "ciepłe bułeczki". Jest to legendarne piwo, wielokrotnie nagradzane na konkursach (m.in. złotymi medalami na trzech ostatnich edycjach European Beer Star). Z tego powodu miałem bardzo dużą ochotę na ten trunek i wiązałem z nim spore nadzieje. Barwa i piana są świetne, natomiast aromat i smak jedynie dobre. Wiąże się to zapewne z datą rozlewu tego piwa, bowiem ma ono już 9 miesięcy i choć data przydatności jeszcze długa to aromaty chmielowe zdążyły się już niestety częściowo ulotnić. Szkoda, bowiem jeśli tak smakuje w chwili obecnej można sobie jedynie wyobrazić jak dobre musi być świeże...
