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.

Thanks Adam! The beer appears hazy and light orange hued with an inch of dense, white head. Plenty of lacing coats the walls of the pint glass. The aroma offers some malty sweetness, as well as some hop and citrus notes. The flavor brings forth a huge helping of malt and candied oranges. Strong. Hop presence is there as well, of course, but the flavor seems dominated by malt, candied oranges, and a sweet presence throughout. Thick in body, even a bit syrupy. Alcohol presence is prominent throughout. Overall, an ok beer, but not my thing.

nice amber/gold pour with luscious white head and aromas of pine and grapefruit - on the palate itís a nice robust malty flavor with a lingering grapefruit/citrus - this one is an almost perfect blend of malt, alcohol, and hops

Purchased at Evolution Wine & Spirits, enjoyed at home recovering from a crazy workout. Appearance is a vibrant, glowing gold with a rich, frothy white head. Aroma is rich in grapefruit notes, caramel malt, and citrusy hops, nothing too out of the ordinary for the style but done very well. Taste is pretty thick, chewy for a DIPA, moderate bitterness, can tell that it packs a punch, very good balance between caramel malts and hops. Well done and enjoyable.

Big floral and grapefruit notes. Pretty aggressive, but stays on an even plain. Good stuff!

This was a nice surprise. Picked this up recently and fell in love. Golden with a nice white froth. As expected, this is a choppy but beautifully balanced DIPA. Citrus fruit with some sweeter characters make this a must try for hop lovers.

A- slightly cloudy honey golden with a resilient sticky 2 finger head that leaves a lacing that will stay until you wash out the glass. S- All hops here. Lemon citrus and some faint floral notes... Mostly citrus though. Very nice. T- All bitter hops up front, very bright citrus notes that give way to some sweeter floral hops in the middle. Not a ton for a malt backbone but enough to make me want another drink sooner than I should, given the high ABV. Finishes with a lasting, wonderful bitterness that youíd expect from a big west coast IIPA. M- A solid medium body with perfect carbonation, not too oily but not too fizzy. O- Very good beer. Not what I expected out of a "double version" of Firestoneís Union Jack, a beer Iím not a huge fan of. Not much for balance, but if thatís what youíre expecting, youíre barking up the wrong tree here... Although I should point out that it isnít as much of a hop bomb as some of the other IIPAs from the west. I highly recommend this one for fans of the regional style.

22oz bottle. Bottled 2/15/12... I should have drank this as soon as I got it... Which was about 2 months ago. Very nice pine citrus hop nose. Impressively big hop flavor still, soapy. Has that malty musty smell that old hops get, but itís still aggressively and assertively bitter and hoppy, with a very dry texture. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Dry, with a long soapy hoppy aftertaste. Mildly hazy orange body. Good foamy off-white khaki head. Leaves good bubbly lace. Good, but I probably need to re-rate this fresh sometime. Itís bound to be much better

Very clear for an ipa. Golden colour. Aroma is full of citrus and pines. Body is full to medium , taste is piney with caramel in the back. Good bitterness and mouthfeel.

Huge hoppy and vanilla flavours. Citrus mainly. Very dry finish with a strong bitterness. Clean and lovely DIPA!
