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.

Pint @ Chuck’s. Incredibly hoppy aroma. It stings the nostrils. That said, it doesn’t leave any fuzzy feelings in my mouth. Palate is incredibly smooth. More balanced than I would have expected. Fantastic.

Appearance: beautiful brilliant golden oranges under a voluminous pithy head, tight and in no hurry to disappear. Mousse-like with random bubbly pockets. Lace surrounds.
Nose: orangey hoppy juicy freshly squeezed goodness. Mango, kiwi, and guava squeezed for my pleasure. Husky in the back. Hop cones in the back. Kiwi grows as initial chill dissipates.
Palate: hits the spot! Mango, kiwi, and guava. Lemon rind in the finish along with inner ripe yellow banana skins. Tropical flesh into tropical skins for lingering juicy husky bitterness with a rawness to it. Honeycomb with more comb than honey. Tangerines freshly picked and juiced.
Final Thoughts: clean and delicious. Firestone Walker inspires and teases because I can’t get any here in Florida. One of the tasting highlights of our Massachusetts vacation. Juicy hoppy goodness.

Poured from the bottle. Color is light and clear. Thin head and limited lacing. Aroma smells like fresh hop pellets right out of the bag. Smells like Amarillo hops, so I’m Curio us what they used. Flavour is nicely buttered probably around 90 ibus. Palate is thick and oily, not as dry as you would expect from the high abv. Overall a awesome beer!

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.

lachrymalisis (380) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2011
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.

stouby (3519) - Holbæk, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2011
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.

scottw86 (1070) - Maryland, USA - SEP 20, 2011
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.
