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.

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.

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.

Bomber shared at GRM’s. Clear deep golden with a thin white head. Strong pine, dust, dank, tropical fruit hops, strong grapefruit, a bit perfumed, black tea, lovely. Medium+body with reasonable effervescence. Strong fruitiness, decent pine/resin, strong, almost cloying honeyed malts, a fair bit of alcohol, perfumed, quite big, not entirely successful for me; sweet with strong bitterness and a long, perfumed, resinous, citrus finish.

Emeister84 (2084) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2013
UPDATED: APR 25, 2013 Aromas of juicy grapefruit, apricot, pine, and light caramel. Clear bronze, off-white head, low retention. Bitter, strong with boozy tones, lightly sweet, very balanced. Full bodied and chewy, moderate carbonation, flavors fade quickly but leave a long, bitter but clean finish.

Linnet (1673) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2013
Ar: Burst of tropical fruits, pineapple, citric, resinous, grapefruit, mango, passionfruit, some perfume and maltiness under all the lovely hop notes, Ap: Amber colour, extremely creamy beige head, lots of lacing. T: big bite but also lots and lots of malts to balance it, lovely retro nasal action of tropical fruits, Behind the grapefruity resinous first onslaught. Long lingering bitterness, paired with a warming finish. P: soft carbonation, full body. T: very nice indeed, Only downside is That for My particular taste the thick maltbase somewhat subdues the hops.

Beautiful double IPA. Hits all the right notes. Nice bouquet. Deep orange color. Hoppy, citrus flavor while not being crazy bitter. Perhaps a standard bearer for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vadavid (142) - Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2013
The beer pours a deep copper color with an strong white head. The citrus aroma of grapefruit is noticeable as soon as the cap comes off the bottle. The flavor is full-bodied and rich in citrus fruit mixed with pine resin. The sweet malt comes through at the end. The mouthfeel is thick with a clean finish. An excellent and flavorful libation.

Ataraxia (492) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Golden pour with a white head. Complex blend of grapefruit, mango, peach, and orange fruits. Bread malt, pine resin, and grass are also present. Spicy, sweet, and crisp, though a bit too highly carbonated. Bitterness of the hops mixes with the alcohol and dominates the finish.
