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.

22oz bomber. Pours pale orange with medium head. Aroma is pineapple hops. Taste is big sweet fruity hops with boozy lighter malt body. Incredible citrus flavor from this beer. Huge body without being heavy at all. Really delicious for a DIPA.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - JUL 8, 2012
22oz bottled March 15, 2012. Served at around 40-45F.

Pours clear amber with a three finger off-white head that leaves some nice rings and webs of sticky lacing and holds a real nice cap.

Aroma is grapefruit, orange/tangerine, floral hops, some pineapple, apricot, decent bit of caramel malt, some alcohol. Very good strength.

Flavor is juicy orange, tangerine, grapefruit, apricot, resinous hops, some pine, caramel malt in the middle with a bit of sweetness, finishes with good bitterness and a noticeable alcohol burn. As I get further into the bottle: apricot, caramel, alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, oily, sticky, good carbonation.

A big ’ol Double IPA, that’s for sure. Pretty good stuff, albeit with 4 months on it. Could imagine how good this would be if super fresh. Other than the age, the only real knock is the booze...this one is fairly hot for the style.

Little heavy. Great fruit flavor and spectacular aroma. Big grapefruit taste is welcomed after the bite from the 9.5% alcohol ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2012
This is exactly how I like my beers. Hoppy, bitter and light malts. Pours golden caramel with a small white head. Little to no aroma but could be from the inadequate glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Incredible scent of citrus is a powerful starting point of this fantastic IPA. I love Union Jack IPA, but I love this even more. Incredible hop flavors mingle perfectly with a deep maltiness. No overwhelming bitterness, but certainly distinct. A nice balance between bitter and sweet, fruity and malty. Outstanding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

soccer290 (225) - Highland Park, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2012
12 oz bottle. Had a sample of this at a craft beer tasting a week ago, thought it was good enough to get a full bottle of. Pours an effervescent light bronze color with a small off-white head. Smells of hops, fresh citrus, malt, and a bit of earthiness. Taste is very strong; definitely tastes the tangerine, good hops presence, and you can taste some alcohol warmth. Full bodied flavor, though I’m not sure I like the tangerine/grapefruit citrus combo (not bad, but a bit different). Overall a very impressive beer.

On draft at Henrietta MacGregors. Pouts a clear yellow with a white head. Nose is sweet malt, citrus hops, and slight pine. Flavor is similar with citrus and sweet malt all over. A nice double ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rougeau13 (2192) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Tap. Clear amber with a good sized off-white head and nice lacing. Huge citrus aroma over pale malts and florals. Taste is plenty bitter, but there’s a nice balance as well. Medium bodied. Excellent.

PaulHegedus (85) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle. A transparent golden coloured ale. Thin off-white head. Floral aroma with citrus fruits, especially tangerine and lime then honeydew melon and avocado. Full bodied. Bitter flavour with ripe cantaloupe, pine, damp wood and earth, tropical fruits, biscuit and tea. Long, moderately bitter finish. Thanks Peter for sharing this one!

Pours brilliant crystal clear deep straw. Really nice aroma, sharp and rounded. Flavor is hoppy but smooth hoppiness it really is well done. Lingering hops all the way to the finish. Really great beer. Does not show it’s 9.5%.
