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 bottle, moderate gusher. aroma is well balanced grainy pine and distinct grapefruit. maltiness is pleasant and comes in bounds, earthy and organic. appearance is deep gold near ruby with active carb and floating island head, ring as well. flavor is substantial lightly darkened citrus up front and BIG lasting bitterness on tail end, booze is present but melds well into big, beefy maltiness. never comes across as offensive or even reveals on its own, just partners with the grain bill and rolls on through.

hazy copper, medium white head, lots of lace. loads of citric hops in the nose with some sweet malt offset. flavor of sweet malt, offset by a nice citric hop and a bitter end. medium bodied, nice bitter finish. fairly comlpex, slightly astringent mouthfeel (i like that), and an enjoyable citric hop presence.

Bomber pours a clear orange with a small off-white head. Aroma has strong malt characteristic , big orange and tangerine, pine. Strong malt and caramel presence all the way through finishing on citrus and pine bitterness.

don’t see what people like in this beer. I get none of the "big malt middle..." that they speak of in their description. it was more like acidic, brutally hoppy saltine water. The aroma was nice, and there was a beautiful cap of creamy-looking head, but one taste and I instantly had heartburn from the hop-acid.

Draught at BoHo. Clear dark orange with a white head. Aroma moderate malty (caramel), heavy hoppy (classic American). Flavor moderate sweet, heavy hoppy, well balanced. Almost full body. Mums.

Poured a light yellow-amber color with a medium sized creamy off-white head. Very nice aroma with lots of apricots and lemons. A good amount of pine and resin as well. Taste is very smooth and well balanced. Creamy and fruity with lots of apricot at first. Finish is pretty hoppy with lots of pine, lemon, and grapefruit. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. Overall very flavorful and well balanced. Great IPA.

PlainsDrifter (74) - Adelphi, Maryland, USA - SEP 18, 2011
22 oz bottle Pours light reddish amber with medium head. Lively carbonation, slick to creamy texture. Medium body, full flavor of grass, and sweet malt. This has a strong alcohol kick to it. Good IPA with a lot of flavor, but I am not sure it is worth the price compared to Dogfish Head or some others.

Tap. I’ve stayed away from this beer for YEARS because I wasn’t impressed by Union Jack. This, on the other hand, is exceptional. Big beer with a lotbto offer. Opaque amber pour with excellent lacing. Aroma of passion fruit, poached pears, and tea leaves. Taste is malty sweet with grassy hops. Palate is full and amazing. Great beer.

TheJester (1726) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2011
650 mL bottle. A very, very well constructed double IPA. Nothing is out of place or balance. The hop profile changes as it warms, with lots of citrus early on, then more and more pine as I made my way through the beer. Stunningly drinkable for a beer this large. I want more.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2011 Orange gold pour with big foamy head and nice lacing. Hoppy aroma: spruce and orange. Flavor is sweet, with caramel and orange and general hoppiness, with a dry bitter sprucey finish.
