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.

On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a clear orange-old. Caramel and a touch of biscuit with moderate pine bitterness. Honestly, a bit one-dimensional. I was expecting a lot more. Solid but pretty forgettable.

Pours to a big head that recedes quickly to about half a finger length. Smells mostly piney with a good bit of citrus as well. Thick texture upon the mouth, piney hops strike first, then a hit of sweetness, and finally a fine malt aftertaste blending with the hops, along with a little bit of an alcohol burn (it *is* 9.5% ABV, after all), but not over-the-top burn at all. Definitely as full of flavor as I remember it being the first time I had it about two months ago.

Draft. Poured a golden orange with a bright white head. Big grapefruit, tangerine, and citrus aroma. Taste starts out sweet, very smooth in the middle, big grapefruit, and a moderately bitter finish. Very well balanced, but still very hoppy. Another glass please.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 Golden with a lasting white head. Aroma of hop resin, grass and floral. Taste matches the aroma nicely with a cleansing palate and good bitterness, pretty smooth for how bitter it is, some sweetness balances it out.

Firestone Walker Double Jack is a dense, very clear, sparkling golden ale topped with an elastic off-white foam that has excellent retention and lacing. It has a huge floral hop aroma. It smells sweet and candy like, pretty citrusy. Itís pretty full bodied and smooth. The finish is quick and clean. Itís flavorful and well balanced. Thereís a soft sweetness from start to finish. It tastes floral at first, but the bitterness turns to citrus by the finish. The aftertaste is long and bitter, with the flavor of orange peel and fresh cracked black pepper. The sweetness hangs on for a while as well. This is really solid stuff. Iíll buy this again, for sure.

My first firestone, but it had to be an ipa. On tap but why do I torture myself with this rude style? Because its there? wtf? Fairly scary ipa aroma. First taste yeild a dull oily soapy mouth coating impact that will not let you soon forget about it. Dull and rubbery is my first impressions. Lingering chewy thing will not dissolve. Wierd stuff, even for an ipa. Barely any co2.

Dragonfly1 (494) - 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 IPAís 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.

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.

Bottle from Consumerís 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.
