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.

This was a nice surprise. Picked this up recently and fell in love. Golden with a nice white froth. As expected, this is a choppy but beautifully balanced DIPA. Citrus fruit with some sweeter characters make this a must try for hop lovers.

A- slightly cloudy honey golden with a resilient sticky 2 finger head that leaves a lacing that will stay until you wash out the glass. S- All hops here. Lemon citrus and some faint floral notes... Mostly citrus though. Very nice. T- All bitter hops up front, very bright citrus notes that give way to some sweeter floral hops in the middle. Not a ton for a malt backbone but enough to make me want another drink sooner than I should, given the high ABV. Finishes with a lasting, wonderful bitterness that youíd expect from a big west coast IIPA. M- A solid medium body with perfect carbonation, not too oily but not too fizzy. O- Very good beer. Not what I expected out of a "double version" of Firestoneís Union Jack, a beer Iím not a huge fan of. Not much for balance, but if thatís what youíre expecting, youíre barking up the wrong tree here... Although I should point out that it isnít as much of a hop bomb as some of the other IIPAs from the west. I highly recommend this one for fans of the regional style.

22oz bottle. Bottled 2/15/12... I should have drank this as soon as I got it... Which was about 2 months ago. Very nice pine citrus hop nose. Impressively big hop flavor still, soapy. Has that malty musty smell that old hops get, but itís still aggressively and assertively bitter and hoppy, with a very dry texture. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Dry, with a long soapy hoppy aftertaste. Mildly hazy orange body. Good foamy off-white khaki head. Leaves good bubbly lace. Good, but I probably need to re-rate this fresh sometime. Itís bound to be much better

Very clear for an ipa. Golden colour. Aroma is full of citrus and pines. Body is full to medium , taste is piney with caramel in the back. Good bitterness and mouthfeel.

Bottle shared by Jeff (mista). Pours a hazy, bright orange with lasting head and nice lacing. Aroma is strong pine and citrus hops. Taste is hops but its well balanced. Nice finish, great DIPA.

22oz bottle, not sure how old it was but maybe a couple months? Nice light orange color, a little lace, short head. Smell was nice but not a super hoppy west coast like I was expecting. It had a touch of alcohol but mostly just had a really balanced smell, a little malt and a little hops. The flavor was very similar, I think I caught a bit of citrus but it was not hop forward at all. the alcohol was noticeable but didnít detract from the flavor. I was actually surprised I enjoyed this as much as I did because I usually only like west coast hop bombs (which this may be when its fresh). Overall this was a nice balanced beer and just reminds me that Firestone Walker makes solid beers. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-28-2011 20:16:04

Bottle thanks to Jeff! Thanks! Pour is a clear honey gold, with a nice white head that has some sticky lacing. Aroma is nice punchy white fruit hops, resiny citrus peel, just a bit of pine. Taste is much the same, with maybe a bit more pine. Slightly thin. Nice lingering finish. Great beer.

Taste at Brewdog shoreditch, 7th November 2012 , probably preferred the Redchurch DIPA that I had the same evening
