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.

Golden orange pour with copious lace. Intense aroma of eucalyptus, menthol, flowers, passionfruit, grapefruit and toasted woodchips. A sip reveals more resinous hops, big caramel and bread flavours in the middle, and a spicy finish. Immaculately balanced; despite what I expect is an enormous IBU, the perceived bitterness is kept firmly in check. Could put it down to the huge malt backbone. Creamy, full body. Could probably be a little dryer - otherwise, practically faultless.

LIVEFAST (62) - Mount Misery, Valley Forge, - NOV 30, 2011
22oz bottle poured into an ABC pint glass. Golden/orange with a tight finger sized head. Sweet malts, a bit of alcohol, passion fruit, and grapefruit in the nose. Fresh Double Jack is definitely a treat...loads of resin, tropical hops, and mango stick to the toungue due to a slightly cloying, bready malt backbone. A bit too dangerous, ABV is totally ignored due to flavor.

Bottle. Moderate raosted and caramel for the malt, moderate to heavy pine and grapefruit peel for the hops, with background notes of date, pepper, alcohol and a medicine-y hint. Head is average size, frothy, slightly off-white with fair, thin lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear light amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a soft carbonation and a finishe that is lighly astringent, lightly to moderately alcoholic and is fairly drying. Nice juicy hops and a perfect balance with the malt backbone makes this DIPA top notch.

wedgie9 (1843) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Tasted on 3/14/11 from a 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Lush West Town. Pours burnt orange with an average off-white head that slowly recedes to uneven lace. The nose is full of piney resin hops, tons of lemon peel, with caramel malt and just a hint of maple. The flavor has some sweet orange and caramel up front, moving to pine resin bitterness, a hint of soap, and chewable vitamins. The body is medium and somewhat sticky with average carbonation and a long bitter orange peel and resin finish.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 26, 2011
22oz bottle from the 300 East liquor store in SLC - Pours a crystal clear yellow color with a medium sized pure white head that sticks around forever. Aroma is full of green resiny hops, with notes of grapefruit and touches of light caramel and faintly toasted malts. Flavor is fairly hoppy with grapefruit notes, touches of caramel and lightly chewy malts. Finish is balanced but with a slight residual sweetness. This is basically a strong version of union jack, almost identical in fact. Its almost like you took a bottle of union jack and poured in everclear. Itís very good, much like union jack. However, I sort of think a double IPA should be different than a regular IPA, not just an identical but stronger version of an IPA. Nevertheless this is still very good.

The aroma is delightfully unique. The citrus / fruit reminds me of a chewing gum product that I can not name but is very familiar. Very balanced taste, sweet up front from the malt with a long hoppiness linger. Maybe, just maybe kick up the hops a few IBUs (that is my CO side of me talking). best beer Iíve had from Firestone!

Draft. Pours golden amber with a white head. Citric and cat piss hoppy aroma with some piney notes. The flavor has resinous piney hops, grapefruit rind, and some citric sweetness. Good stuff.

RickTStiles (709) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2011
pours a light golden color with a lasting white head and beautiful lacing. aroma is very complex with notes of yeast, hay, flowers, citrus fruit, and candy sugar. Taste is rich with notes of caramel, grapefruit, chamomile and anise. finish is dry, sweet and lushly hoppy. This one of the best and most elegant double IPAís Iíve ever had.
