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.

Great head with a dark golden color, nice aroma with great hop kick. Doesn't get better that this.

The hop bill on this one was very good, but there was nowhere near enough malt to carry it through. this one was a bit too hop water-like for my tastes.

Growler - fresh as the day is long. Pours a light amber with a thick, white foamy head. Nice lacing. Aroma is bready, piney grapefruit. A nice lingering bitterness in the taste. The ABV is apparent, but not overwhelming. A very solid DIPA offering that I could see leading to trouble ;)

Hop juice for the hop lover. Insane amounts of citrus, pine, and sticky resins. Solid malts, chewy, and bready. Heavy bitterness, really intense. Solid tropical fruit, and grapefruit in the finish, with loads of pine resins. Really a solid balanced DIPA.

Its hoppy, stuff and junk. I’m not a huge fan of this brewery. High ABV is pleasant, and balanced by hop and malt body,

Poured at a good temperature with a large, foamy, cream-colored head that subsided after a bit and lots of lace. Color is a clear yellow amber. Aroma is resin, hop, malt, grain. Flavor’s like nose, carbonic tang up front, follow immediately by bitter/sweet and the other components. Body and carbonation are perfect for style. Finish is like flavor, long, and super drinkable. It’s a let’s git it beer.

Boutip (5198) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of citrus and piney hops notes is quite dominant with some dry caramel malt with some residual sugar also noticeable. Taste is a hops forward mix of citrus notes with light piney notes with some bitterness. Malt backbone offset some of the hops presence with light residual sugar notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Solid beer though I was expecting more floral hoppy notes.

ACHops (977) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2012
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.
