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.

Copper orange color. Smells of some citrius, pineapple and a good bit of spruce and pine Very stong aroma. Delicious bitter hop taste. Lasting bitter hop aftertaste that stays with you for a while. Hides the high ABV pretty well. Nice finish, could drink this all day. I drank this back to back with it’s little brother Union Jack (or I guess Single Jack). Basically the same thing, just stronger. The Union is 7.5%, this is 9.5%, which is about 25% more. I would say that sounds about right for everything they just turned it up a bit. Not sure if its good enought to justify 2x the price though. Not a knock on this, but more of a credit to little brother. Overall this is a very good Imperial IPA. Easily in my top 10 IPAs.

22oz bottle. Served in a globe. Pours clear copper, one finger of white head with good lacing on the glass. Smells of hops - pine, resin, citrus, grass. Medium body, nicely balanced between malt sweetness and hops. Caramel flavors, citrus, and a wonderful lingering bitterness and not a hint of alcohol. One of my favorite DIPAs.

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear orange with small off white bead and spotty lacing. The aroma is floral hops and citrus. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet hop and citrus. A good IIPA that hides the alcohol well making it very easy to drink.

I was really hoping the hops had held up while I waited for this to make back from my trip to Seattle. It definitely has and is definitely one of the best doubles I have had. Aroma is big orange and citrus. A little bit of sugar. Flavor is nicely balanced with sweetness caramel and orange candi sugar. A little bit of bubblegum. Finish is pleasantly bitter and relatively long with a good orange candy flavor. Nice balance and drink ability. Tasty

Bomber pours a very elegant amber with a thin white head. Flural aromas up front also lots of citrus and pine. Flavor is bitter citrus rind up front and very piney also a bit of malt smoothness and pepper. Body is medium withand some alcohol warmth and very astringent feel. Finish leaves a very bitter taste. Great ipa

A little expensive but a really delicious double IPA. Nice aroma, but mine was served a little too cold. There is a big malty body that helps cut the bitterness. Tons of hop bite at the end. -

650ml boomer from High Spirit Liquors in Providence, Rhode Island. Pours a clear golden orange with a tall foamy head.. Some lace, but not very long lasting.  Nice sweet citrus aroma. Flavours is citrus with zest bitter, pine, and very nice spicy sweetness. Full bodied, almost syrupy, nice lingering bitter. Alcohol - at 9.5% - not overpowering.

One of the best IPAs I’ve had. Strong piney aroma. Beautiful clear golden slight orange color. Taste of mild sweetness, little to no alcohol taste and a wonderful hoppy bitterness that I crave in my IPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 Poured from bomber into a tulip. Pours a medium orange color with a nice, but small head. Very hop based aromas of pine, resin, hops and a lot of citrus aromas as well. Big, but not overdone. fuller bodied with a very good feel. Polished with a real smoothness to it along with flavors of resin, oranges, hops and some bits of pine flavors as well. This is an extremely good DIPA. You don’t feel any of the alcohol and while it is a very hoppy beer, it isn’t in the way too much category either.
