Wow. Big 2IPA. Nose is hops with a nice sweet backing. In the mouth, initial big earthy hops, middle has a mild sweetness, perhaps appricot. Back end is all hop bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium in the mouth. Great beer.

A very good, intense double IPA. Floral hop nose . Full bodied, but definitely weighted to the extravagant hops. If hops are your thing, this is the beer for you. Oily and weighty mouthfeel. A bit fatiguing, but very well made.

Strong alcohol ester, grab you by the neck and scream " I gonna get you buzzed" 9.5 then smooth and surreptitious ...an IPA with an adult ABV

Tap. Golden with creamy white head-decent size, decent lacing, decent retention. Smells like I like it. Piney, grape fruity, resent, maybe a little passion fruity. Not a lot of sweetness in the nose. Grapefruit comes through in the flavor, followed by bitter. Not much sweetness here either. Nicer long hop finish, a bit warming, soft carbonation. You’ll put this up amongst the faves. Was just reminded of the 5 in the forums today- do here is one for me.

Clear, orange appearance with not too much head. Great hoppy aroma and taste with a bit of an alcohol aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear blond color, decent head and quite a lot of lace. Tropical fruit in the nose and a bit of nutty malt. Decen balance but not really vibrant or expressive. Drinkable but forgetable.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle) Pours clear golden with a cream off-white head. The aroma holds overripe yellow fruits/tropical fruit salad, watermelon, hard candy, floral perfume, olive oil, old/light sweaty sock, sweet citrus (orange, tangerines, mild lime peel and grapefruits) and green-ish hints of grass, pines and mild minty/peppery herbs. Undertones of toasted malt, doughy bread and honey. Juicy, fresh and candy-sweetish on the nose. The flavor is light to medium sweet, near medium bitter and tiny to light acidic. Super juicy flavor of orange, grapefruit, tangerine, mango, peach, lychee and passion fruit. Herbal, piney and grassy undertones. Touch of toast, honey, doughy bread and caramel. The mouthfeel is clean (minus the yeastiness), juicy, soft and tiny astringent with a light to medium carbonation. Citric, tropical, piney and herbal finish. Medium bodied. Passar bra till smörgåstårta.

There’s a lot of mediocre IPA/DIPA’s out there. But each time I taste Double Jack, preferably fresh, I know that I still like hoppy beer, if they are well made. One of my favorites.
