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.

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.

Scopey (6714) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2012
Bottle from Healthy Spirits, SF. It pours amber, with a thick white head. The nose is fresh pine, grass, spice and caramel sweetness. The taste is pine, resin, leather, floral, leaf, oily hop, grass, spice and a touch of citrus peel, with a long bitter-dry finish. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation and slightly oily mouth-feel. Very savoury indeed, I would have like some juicy citrus to balance it out. A really good DIPA nonetheless.

Thanks to Pete for this treat. Good foamy head, solid carbonation and a clean as you like orange hue. Nose is soft citrus hops - very refined. Very balanced DIPA. Not too much sticky malt body and not a huge tongue blast of hops. Good solid bitter finish. Malt body is sweet on the finish. VERY well made - which is the hall mark of this brewery. Hides 9.5% very well too. Great lacing.

Great floral aroma. Dark clear amber copper. Heavy cascade flavor. Hops hide alcohol content.

great hoppy flavor, slightly sweet, great balance for a high alcohol %. Not overly malty, great hop presence.

Really nice IPA. Hops are nice and smells unbelievable. Citrus is most noticeable with orange and grapefruit. Heavy piney sap is in there as well. The taste starts with grapefruit, cirtus, and even a hint of mango. Turns bitter toward the middle with piney hops that go till the finish. The finish leaves the mouth wet opposed to a dry, crisp end and lingers with bitterness. The 9.5% abv is well hidden. Nearly a religious experience!

jackl (4567) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle. Lovely orange amber color with a huge, creamy white head. Attractive. Sugary orange nose, plenty of grassy hops. Spun sugar, angel food cake. The taste is bitter tropical fruits, more orange peel zest. Hoppy, sure, but grounded by some nice brioche-like malting that gives heft and importance to the mouthfeel. Creamy, silky on the tongue. Nice indeed. The body’s medium/full. The carbonation active and prickly. Overall, a great beer. Very tasty without resorting to being an over the top hop bomb. The alcohol’s hidden very well, I finished the 650ml bottle like it was nothing.

Deep copper with off-white head that lasts. Amazing citrus & mango nose with hint of booziness. Perfectly rich mouthfeel with acidic hops throughout. The alcohol is fierce and not masked much, even though the malts are caramelly and sweet. I really enjoy the upfront alcohol in this, as all of the senses are attacked. Huge hops, fiery burn, sweet middle. Very enjoyable!

Amber with a nice sized head, good retention. Tropical fruit in nose. Taste is pineapple and grapefruit, a bit of pine all backed by a strong caramel sweetness.
