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.

Bomber pours a clear golden color with a large white head that lasts and laces. The first whiff is strong citrus hops. Aroma is mostly grapefruit. Taste is bitter, but malts in the finish balance this. It has a medium body and just enough carbonation to excite. The high ABV is well hidden. A very good IIPA, but not quite as complex as my favorites.

Poured from a 22oz bottle. Pours a beautiful copper crystal clear color with no head. Aroma is that of pure hops, hops, hops, with a hint of alcohol detected. Burst of citrus fruit taste with a nice background of grass and pine. Initial palate feel is smooth and perfect. Hop bitterness is balanced well by the light maltiness of the beer. Bitterness on the palate lingers and becomes deeper in the back of the mouth as the nice bitterness lingers and draws me back for another taste. Alcohol is masked very well and allows me to focus more on the complex variety of hops used in this beer. VERY nice assertive Double IPA and one I would love to have again and again. Well Done!

pours a murky amber hue with a small white head that is mostly diminishing aroma of tropical fruits and citrus - flavor just the same but pretty damn hoppy medium mouthfeel with light carb on tap at library alehouse in santa monica ca.

Bottled. Aroma is complex, malty, pungent and sucrose. Mouthfeel is dense and frothy. Sweet caramel to prolonged skunky malt. Bitter chocolate undertones with an unending hoppy kick and plant. Would like to try this on tap under a proper temperature to truly appreciate this well-rated selection.

BillWyce (740) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2012
From notes: Poured into snifter, bubbly orange-amber with a small, thin bone-colored head that was gone quickly. Lots of carbonation bubles along the wall of the glass. Strong, deep (yet not overpowering) grapefruit aroma, and maybe a light woody note. Medium-thick, yet very deep and full-bodied with a slight oilyness and a long, somewhat astringent finish. Flavor was, as expected, hoppy. Mostly pine, with some grapefruit in the finish. Also a mild woody note in the finish. While quite hoppy, it was somewhat restrained (in a good way) as compared to some other double IPA’s I’ve had.

Copper in color. Has a thick, frothy, off-white head with Constallation lacing. Head descipated rather quickly. Hoppy aroma. Hint of citrus in the aroma. Piney aroma. Creamy texture. It coats your mouth. The hops hits the back of your throat almost instantly. There is a salty taste to it. I love this beer. A definite Hoppy lovers beer.

22 oz. bottle- Pours crystal clear orange with a nice three finger head and good lace. The aroma is pungent bitterness, pine, very resinous, sweet and syrupy, love it. The taste is very pungent and resinous, juicy grapefruit, very tasty. The body is medium, finish lingers, carbonation is medium. Overall a wonderfull DIPA, would have to compare with others to see if it makes my top five or not.

I poured this brew into an Imperial Pint glass and it poured a light golden orange with about a finger and 1/2’s worth of a white head that left decent lacing. Immediately I could smell the hops(F.W. uses a combination of Amarillo, Cascade, Simcoe and Centennial hops in their dry hopping to give this beer it’s overwhelmingly awesome aroma) wafting from my glass and they gave off a strong and enjoyable aroma’s of Pineapple, Grapefruit and grass. The taste was very similar to the aroma except with pine notes mixed in as well and finished very dry. The mouth feel of the beer was very light and had a slight sting from the 9.5% ABV.
