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.

Always a quality DIPA! Lots of pine with a hint of citrus. Body is medium, certainly not overwhelming (in a good way). Taste follows the nose, lots of malt sweetness (perhaps this is an older bottle (DAMN YOU FIRESTONE FOR NOT DATING!!!)) with about 5/10 worth of bitterness coming through at the end. Easily enjoying a 22oz by myself of this.

OliverG (276) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2011
22-12-11 Bouteille 650ml: Couleur jaune-dorée, limpide avec une effervescence normale et très peu de mousse. Arômes de malt céréales asser puissant, avec une touche de houblon et des notes fruitées style pèches-poires. Saveurs très maltée avec une bonne touche d’houblon et de fruits. Bien balancé, mais moins houblonnée que la plupart des double ipa. Corps moyen avec une texture ronde et asser soyeuse. Carbonisation moyenne et finale bien balancée également. Bonne bière, sans plus.

kopher (592) - New York, USA - DEC 13, 2011
rich malty aroma with a thick musty resin hoppiness. surprisingly sweet with a healthy bittersweet hop finish. smooth and malty throughout. this is good but is more of a barley wine. not sure why breweries are labeling barley wines "double ipas" these days. there’s very little fresh hop aroma. still, it’s tasty, very smooth, and alcohol is well hidden though it’s a bit hot in the finish.

Aroma intense, clean bold in your face hop aromas. Hint of honey, aromatic flowers. Bold yet balanced neat approach.
Appearance clear with gentle haze, amber. Medium top , lace noted on glass.
Flavor and Palate : Medium plus bodied. Ultra clean with plenty of hops. Very well presented, produced strong hoppy ale. Another superb brew from Firestone.

Chuckaduck (628) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Pours a clear green-gold with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, citrus, pine, pineapple. Flavor is surprisingly fruity; long on the grapefruit and some burnt caramel; bitter with a very smooth finish. Really well done. Flavor is real fruity, tangerine and grapefruit come to mind with some nice underlying malt. Overall a real quality brew!

22oz Bottle from Wine & Cheese Place. Crystal clear copper color with a short head. Incredible hop aroma, mostly citrus and floral some pine and bubblegum, not unlike Dreadnaught. Reminds me of fresh Dread. Medium body, syrupy and slick leaving a sharp bitterness. Flavor is real fruity, tangerine and grapefruit come to mind with some nice underlying malt. Overall a real quality brew!
