09-JUL-2011, bottle @Ulkløbben Summerparty. Brought by Henrik.
Clear orange with white head.
Lemon and grape fruit is evident.
Some malts in the background but still a bit thin bodied. Long creamy aftertaste that is really bitter. Fantastic taste with loads of fruity hoppy stuff. Really good IIPA.

On draft served in a Tulip glass. Extremely bitter upfront and super carbonated. Grapefruit in flavor. Really clean tasting and a slick mouth feel. One of the best Double IPA’s I’ve ever had.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle. Date on the neck: 03/14/11. A relatively clear copper pour with a thick antique white head. Excellent balance in the aroma with a great deal of caramel to offset the resiny pine and grapefruitiness. Full-bodied and syrupy on the way down. Lots of caramel, breadiness, and some rye qualities upfront in the taste. Vanilla in the middle. Some spruce and grapefruitiness at the tail end. Solid stuff.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
I didn’t know that this beer had a 100/99 rating on ratebeer when I bought it. I just bought it cuz it was called "double jack" and it was only $9. Reason enough. Its beer.
I started drinking it after finishing two Dogfish 90-minute IPAs. Just a coincidence, but comparison is inevitable.
Compared to DFH 90m, this beer is cloying and syrupy. Good, solid and tasty, but missing what makes a great beer great.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to Total Wine & More in Cherry Hill, NJ for stocking this. Pours a hazy orange-copper with a tall light tan head and curtains of lacing worthy of a Broadway stage. As soon as it hits the bottom of the glass you get the aroma of a citrus grove punctuated by pine trees. Huge citrusy hops, caramel, milk chocolate, pine needles and a hint of Granny Smith apples. Rock solid malt backbone. Smooth medium body and a modestly dry, flavorful and quick finish. A great IIPA all around.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bomber bottle from The Beer Store. This is an excellent DIPA. Pours deep golden with white head. Nose full of citrus hops. Flavor was bursting with citrus and grassy hops, tempered with sweet malts, and finishing with a hop crispness. Medium body, great finish, just an excellent brew from start to finish. A hop lovers dream.
