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.

Dragonfly1 (482) - Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Standard Market draft. Peach and citrusy aroma, bright gold pour. Bitter right away and throughout, but nicely balancing citrus notes and a crisp finish. Lack of syrupy sweetness found in other heavy IPA’s ends up being too much, but again this showed very good balance.

Bomber. Pours a hazy amber to slight orange color with a nice foamy head that clings to the glass. Fruity hop nose with a strong bitter kick, but the high alcohol is not present except possibly the finish. Excellent strong IPA.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2012
On tap at House of 1000. Has a huge juicy hop notes, fresh and floral and fruity with pine. Golden amber clear with thin white lacing head. Medium-heavy watery body with medium carbonation. Medium sweetness with apricot and pine hop notes, fresh and juicy. Mild to medium bitterness in the after with some carbonic bite. Delicious.

Hammy78 (724) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle from Consumer’s Beverages Niagara Falls. Pours a pure copper colour with a pile of fluffy white head and clumps of lacing. Smells sweet smooth hop, citrus. Tastes a little boozy with a citrus peel hop bitter. Really smooth.

Bottle. Very noticeable hop flavor. Lots of pine and resin but not overly bitter. Good flavor. I didn’t notice much alcohol taste in this. Pretty good overall.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Bottle 2010. Aroma has notes of citrus, resin, caramel and grapefruit. Medium clear amber hue with a small off-white head that mostly diminished and left little lace. Flavor is very sweet and very very bitter. Palate is full bodied and watery soft. Overall a nice IIPA but the appearance is to clear and not enough head and lace.

gururyan (578) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Poured a yellow gold, tinged with burnt orange. Aroma is promising, a touch heavy in the mids. Nice for a change from the norm, for a short bit.

Thechasm442 (295) - Wilmington, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2012 re rated with a fresh bottle Served in a Duvel glass. Pours a clear golden orange with a thin white head and decent lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, orange peel, pine resin, tangerine, lemons, and caramel. Taste is grapefruit, tangerine, and pineapple up front. It gives way to a caramel malt with some breadiness and a floral back bone. Mouthfeel is medium and very little alcohol is present. It is a very easy to drink beer and an awesome example of the style.

NachlamSie (2723) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Bomber from AJ’s Fine Foods. Well, here it is: the best beer that I consumed on my trip to Arizona. This stuff is glorious! It pours a solid orange color I like so well from the style with a frothy white head. This is the first beer I tried out here that made me utter "wow" upon taking a sniff. The floral bouquet is endlessly complex and strong. It’s a straight up IIPA with tons of citrus and evergreen. The hops run that gamut of citrus with a little rosemary and pineapple standing out. The malty sweetness is just a canvas except for the slightest biscuity note that makes things a little interesting. The palate is outstanding: dry, not too sticky, but still resinous.

Clear bright copper-amber color, small white head. Fruity, citrus aroma. Medium-bodied. Fruity, resiny hoppyness in the flavor. Sweet bitter finish. Good drinkability. Nice one.
