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.

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!

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.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2012 Tap @ MacGregors Penfield. Pours a clear light amber with a smallish head that doesn’t really seem to leave much lacing. Heavy citric hops in the nose. Impressive hop rate. Taste follows suit. Light malt backbone which I really like in DIPA’s... not to say that this beer is dry, but it isn’t super sticky sweet either. Anyway, I really liked it.

Appearance is medium white head with clear amber. Aroma is a sweet earthy hop. Taste is bitter and grassy but with a nice citrus blend. Overall a solid IPA.

Pours a little hazy. This is a big beer. Lots of malt. Not too bitter, very well balanced. Its a bit fruity and sweet and mouth feel is a little sticky. Great beer not as bitter as I expected though.

Picked up a bomber bottle at Bevmo in San Diego, CA, and poured it into a tulip glass. Pours a nice amber color with a fizzy white head and light lacing. A lovely aroma of piny hops and tropical fruit. Flavors are beautifully balanced between the slight herbal bitterness of the hops, caramel malt notes, and very pronounced, juicy fruit flavors (citrus, pineapple, apricot). Alcohol flavor is well-hidden. This stuff is delicious.

Been waiting a while to get my hands on this one. Pours orange with a tight foamy head. Aroma is massive citrus of peach and grapefruit with a subtle earthiness from the significant malt presence and the danker notions of the hops. Flavor is intense but well balanced. Starts with piney notes with the fruit as well. Nice malty presence comes in and then an everlasting finish the echoes the lovely aroma. Great beer.
