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.

kopher (592) - New York, USA - DEC 13, 2011
rich malty aroma with a thick musty resin hoppiness. surprisingly sweet with a healthy bittersweet hop finish. smooth and malty throughout. this is good but is more of a barley wine. not sure why breweries are labeling barley wines "double ipas" these days. there’s very little fresh hop aroma. still, it’s tasty, very smooth, and alcohol is well hidden though it’s a bit hot in the finish.

Aroma intense, clean bold in your face hop aromas. Hint of honey, aromatic flowers. Bold yet balanced neat approach.
Appearance clear with gentle haze, amber. Medium top , lace noted on glass.
Flavor and Palate : Medium plus bodied. Ultra clean with plenty of hops. Very well presented, produced strong hoppy ale. Another superb brew from Firestone.

Chuckaduck (640) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Pours a clear green-gold with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, citrus, pine, pineapple. Flavor is surprisingly fruity; long on the grapefruit and some burnt caramel; bitter with a very smooth finish. Really well done. Flavor is real fruity, tangerine and grapefruit come to mind with some nice underlying malt. Overall a real quality brew!

Bottle. Pours a thick cheddar orange with a nose grapefruit, orange peel, and pine. Flavor is grapefruit, orange, light bread and pine. Chunky on the tongue. Great IIPA.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2011
22oz Bottle from Wine & Cheese Place. Crystal clear copper color with a short head. Incredible hop aroma, mostly citrus and floral some pine and bubblegum, not unlike Dreadnaught. Reminds me of fresh Dread. Medium body, syrupy and slick leaving a sharp bitterness. Flavor is real fruity, tangerine and grapefruit come to mind with some nice underlying malt. Overall a real quality brew!

beardfear (87) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 3, 2011
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.
