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.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2013 Poured from bottle. Beautiful clear amber color. WOW. The aroma is wonderful: floral, citrus, pine, a very complex smell. Fruity, but not overwhelming. Hoppy, but not too much. The taste is smooth, lightly sweet, but hoppy. There is a malty smell/taste that provides some body, but not too thick. Surprising alcohol at 9.5%, but you will never know. Overall this is an impressive DIPA. It has moved into my favorite category. (6/24/2012) I bumped my rating of this beer up. I had it again (12/27/2012), and it was every bit as good if not better than I remembered. That often does not happen.

Amazing aroma of pine, honey, vanilla, grapes, citrus. Golden colour with not a lot of head. Taste is well balanced, bitter and sweet, citrus. Awesome DIPA.

Not as hoppy as a lot of double IPAs but the hops are nice and floral with a great malt sweetness. Easy to drink but packs a punch. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is one of my favorite DIPAs, golden pour with a white head, Citrua and hoppy with some caramel malts on the nose, wonderful hoppiness on the flavor and smooth and creamy. This beer is awesome.

cbfobes (2686) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Poured from 22oz bomber, pours a crystal clear light golden/orange with a thin head and some lacing, the arom has a ton of citrus and hops, the flavor has a dank wet hop front end with some citrus and mango in the finish, nice mouthfeel, very smooth. It hides the 9.5% extremely well, good stuff.

asheft (2704) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2012
[bottle] Potent hops aroma of pine, cat pee, currants, pineapple, and a little citrus. Almost clear deep gold under a lasting, off-white cover. Intense hops flavour that comes in with some base malt sweetness and ending with an assertive but not quite harsh hops bitterness. Some of the sweetness is probably from ethanol. Complex flavour includes apricot, pine, ethanol, cat pee, and other resinous hops notes. Medium to full body, medium carbonation, residual bitterness in the finish.

Sask89 (498) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUN 15, 2012
Pours a golden amber colour, clear with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is quite hoppy with noticeable citrus fruit undertones and some caramel malt. Not very sweet or bitter, but it is consistent and balanced with a slightly greater bitter bite. Creamy mouth feel, medium body and softer carbonation. Overall an awesome double IPA.

Tap @ Pony w James. Fresh pine aroma, fresh pine palate. Tons of fresh hop. A quintessential imperial IPA. Straight-forward, bold.

On tap and snifter served at Lunar Brewing Co., displaying a clear & bright golden color, creamy, off white head foam, and a band of clingy lacing at the rim that broke up somewhat as the liquid decreased. The aroma was expressive pine and citrus as orange & pungent grapefruit, smooth malt and complementary sweetness. Medium+ body, some creaminess to the mouthfeel, warming alcohol from the start, medium, earthy, tanniny, lingering astringency, and decent malt content to balance described the flavor. The finish offered some sweetness, but was mainly bitter, crisp, and dry. Very impressive!
