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 peachy gold with a 2 finger, slightly chunky off white head. Aroma is big on toast, biscuit, and caramel, with some cereal and grainy notes right away, the hops coem in a bit light, but pleasant, floral, citrus, light tropical and a hint of tart berry bite. Flavor is sweet caramel, light toffee, biscuit, sweet malt, cereal dusty hay, then the hops, sweet and bitter citrus, some pine, light tropical, floral and hints of pine to the finish along with something that tastes a bit like I would imagine reduced, mixed melon juice tastes like. Medium body, sugary entry to slick, slightly dry finish with a moderately coarse, light carbonation. Good stuff, though it seems like it may be a little past it’s prime, but the date stamp is not properly applied, so it’s impossible to tell, though I am fairly sure it was bottled @ 16:55.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1002) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Gold, quick-fizz eggshell head, blast of sweet citrus aroma. Upon closer inspection, aroma also has bitter pine elements and light malt caramel. Flavor is equal parts pine sap and orange/grapefruit citrus. Light malt sweetness is generally overshadowed here. Somewhat boozy and hot, especially after sitting for a while. Medium-thick body with coarse carbonation. A great IPA; the aroma makes it! But the bitterness (when warm) is just too much for a great score.

One of the best beers I’ve had this year! Fullness of the hop experience tempered with an ample dosing of malted sweetness. Aggressive assault from start to finish, though never unbalanced and never too much. Grapefruit, pine, resin, and even some caramel. Delish.

neongolden (846) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2012
(bottle sample from a friend) Poured cool, a hazy bright golden orange with a decent white head. Strong aroma of grapefruit, pine, and some tropical fruit from the hops, a little malt sweetness with a hint of grain. Smells gorgeous and inviting with no trace of alcohol. Early in the palate that same combination of juicy hop flavours comes through, with a little malt and bittering hops balancing each other out. This turns into pine hops and more malt sweetness and bread with lingering fruit, and finishes dry but not bracingly bitter, the pine resin and caramel malt and alcohol all balanced out. Mouthfeel is medium with pleasingly soft carbonation. Smooth and well-integrated with a delightful nose and the alcohol well-hidden, more DIPAs should be so balanced and drinkable in my opinion.

A - Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is full of grapefruit, pineapple, pine, and citrus hops, sweet caramel malts, and some biscuit. T - Starts off with grapefruit, pineapple, and citrus hops with some bitterness and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, lots of pine hops come through with more bitterness and a bit more caramel malts. The finish is a mix of grapefruit and pine hops with some resiny bitterness and some sweet caramel malts and a touch of booze. M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, bitter, and resiny finish. D - Very drinkable. Very nice hops profile and bitterness and the overall balance is spot on.

fiveacestx (825) - Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Bomber - honey gold in color with a decent white head and nice lacing on the glass. Has a strong citrus nose and a great hoppy flavor to it. It has a nice medium-heavy mouthfeel and while it has a dry finish it’s not overdone. Definitely one of the better DIPAs out there.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 5, 2012
This is a solid DPA. Pours golden honey with a hue of orange and light lacing of white head. Huge aroma of hoppy citrus (grapefruit/orange), malty caramel, and a dab of basil. Medium body of perfectly balanced caramel malt with a touch of sweetness, and bitter citrus that is just slightly resiny. Finish is smooth and clean with a light lingering of bitter orange peel. Insanely balanced and drinkable for 9.5% ABV.

Aroma is pure and clean hops. The maltiness in this one is more subdued, probably due in large part to the high alcohol content. It's a nice balance. The hot split the pallet just right and lingers a bit but it never feels too overwhelming for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fraternie (928) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2015 A perfectly balanced IPA, with caramel maly mingling with tons of grapefruit and orange citrus/ tropical fruits here, finishing with an intense piney hop background and a spicy undertone. Smooth and balanced, with hops lingering long, with very little trace of heat. Yummy stuff.
