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.

A truly superb Double IPA. Ar: Extremely hoppy (citrus) with a little bit of pine as well. Caramel malts are quite apparent as well. A very well-balanced brew. Ap: Pours an amber-orange with a nice, large white head. T: Grapefruit and other citrus hops, although certainly not the most bitter IPA. There is some sweetness here as well, though perhaps not as much as the aroma might suggest. P: Medium-to-heavy body.

Copper color in the glass. Pleasant fruity, citrus, resin hop aroma. Quite bitter but not in an unpleasant way, it all stays in balance overall. My first beer from this brewery and I must say I am impressed.

(from notes- tasting party) Pours a light orange, w/ some white, creamy bubbles. Love the nose on this! Peach, apricot, citrus. Nice malt backbone to support all of the hops. Fruity, sweet. One of my faves!

This beer is worth the price simply for the aroma! Smells like heaven. Rapidly becoming my go-to beer. So glad that it is readily available locally. Rates up there with the best West Coast DIPAs for sure.

Originally reviewed: 3/20/12. Brought back a bottle of this from my recent trip out to Cali. Bottled on 1/26/12. Poured into a tall goblet. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a thick white foamy head capping it off. Sticky globs of lace cling to the glass. The aroma on this one is stellar. Big citrus notes of tangerine, orange, grapefruit; light lemony-pine scent as well. Floral and sweet, just how I like it. This one is lacking in bite, as the beer is quite smooth, almost erring on thin. This goes down really slick. The flavors are not as pronounced as I had hoped. The citrus character is almost muted, and the hops are not all that flavorful. The alcohol comes forward a bit as there is an ethanol wash on the finish. I was really excited for this one, but it ended up a bit of a letdown. Not a terrible beer, just a slightly above average one.

Tap @ The Front Door: Crystal clear like dark apple juice. Nice fuzzy head and abounding with juniper aroma. On first taste, you are confronted with a TON of taste - junipers, apricots, pine needles, some grapefruit rind and alcohol. The aftertaste is a bit musty and not as sweet and syruppy as many 2 IPAs but still excellent!

20 apr 2012, bottle. Light gold and. clear. Nose is equally faint alcohol and grapefruit hops with prominent strong ale malt. Med body, slightly sugary, dainty fizzy. Pretty alright. Some strong ale alcohol with faint alcohol twinge and some reding bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The smell is the best part of this double IPA, citrusy and piney notes dominate. The beer pours with minimal head and has a nice, somewhat light appearance. The taste is certainly reminiscent of the aroma, but the alcohol notes are strong for me; not hidden well at all. Strong hop bitterness throughout the taste. For me this is a good, but not great, beer.

amber with a cream head. Nose is tropical fruits, sticky, fresh, grapefruit, and lightly bitter. Super smooth on the palate, sticky hops, bitter, grapefruits, and light citrus.
