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.

Big bottle. Solid double IPA. Lots of citrus aroma, nice bitterness. Will be on my list when next in the USA.

timberrr (43) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2013
12oz bottled on 11/2/12. Pours a clear golden amber with a fluffy white 2 finger head. Great aroma, tropical fruit, mostly pineapple with some grapefruit and a little pine. Taste is a good balance of sweet malt, citrus and pine. The 9.5 ABV is hidden well in the flavors. Medium bodied, pretty smooth with a medium to light carbonation. Picked this up as it was recommended to me by a guy working at the beer store and I’m glad I did. Overall a great DIPA, nice and refreshing with plenty of balanced flavor.

22oz pour with a clear gold pour. Citrus aroma. Strong citrus grapefruit and orange taste.

Prufrockstar (1980) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Aroma is big spruce, citrus, grass, some caramel, bread. Clear amber orange with white head that dissipates to a ring. Irregular lacing. Strong hop bitterness through and through. Almost harsh. It figures that now that I’m finally getting to rate this I’m not picking up as much on the malty sweetness that usually holds it together from the bitter start to bitter end. I suppose that’s the nature of this game, though -- snapshots in time. Medium body, average carbonation, long bitter finish. Overall: this is one of my go-to favorites, but it probably wouldn’t be if this rating was my first time with the beer. I wonder how many other potential favorites I miss because of the circumstances under which we meet for the first time?

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle from Freebridge in Phillipsburg, NJ. Elegant aroma with flowery umbrella and citrus. Flavor a mix of orange and apple fruits with spicy herbal quality underneath. Aggressive malt tone in aftertaste with slight alcohol burn. I like how they mix the sweetness of the malts with sweet citrus hop tones. Very dry mouthfeel.

Decent double IPA, hoppy, sweet, stays on the palate. The hop flavor at the end is a little off putting

Great beer, would love to try it on tap. Will be looking into putting this one in the kegerator

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Pours a nice amber orange color with an off white foamy head that lasts a decent while. Aroma is complex of citrus, pine, grapefruit, hops and mild orange. Flavor is initially bittersweet and bold malt and hop flavors with some pine as well. The finish is dry but hard to pick out if it’s bitter or sweet. Mouthfeel is full and carbonation is decent. Overall this is a solid beer.

duke33 (69) - Eldersburg, Maryland, USA - JAN 12, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 Very sweet and syrupy going down. It quickly is replaced by extremely bitter hops and a citrus bite. Not bad but not the best imperial IPA I’ve had.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2013
Das Aroma ist tropisch-fruchtig nach Ananas, Grapefruit, Passionsfrucht, nur etwas Citrus-Hopfen. Im Antrunk erstaunlich trocken. Der Hopfen übernimmt gleich das Kommando. Der ist fast überdimensioniert, aber neben der Herbe auch ausgleichend aromatisch. Der relativ hohe Alkoholgehalt ist zwar nicht zu leugnen, aber keinesfalls spritig. Soweit so gut. Zu kritisieren bleibt die mangelnde Süffigkeit, denn das Double IPA lässt sich nur nippend konsumieren. Der Malzkörper ist für diese Hopfenstopfung einfach zu schmächtig geraten, sonst wäre eine bessere Wertung zustande gekommen. "Normale" IPA haben für mich daher ganz klar mehr zu bieten.
