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.

Bottle at home. Hill Farmstead Glass. Fridge Temp + a few degrees.

A - Clear golden grown, white head.

S - Lots of malts, big nice smelling malts. Burning hop bitterness. Lots of grapefruit and citrus. Hint of pine cones.

T - Wow. Alright, aside from the obvious that a 9.5% IIPA is "malty", it’s a big beer. It lingers for a long time with huge maltiness like eating croutons. I get lots of grapefruit and tangerine peels. I get some pineapple and lots of pine sap. finish is this floral sort of relaxed light flowery delicious aftertaste that coasts my mouth. Very nice!

M - 20% carbonation, medium body (surprisingly). VERY bitter.

O - It’s lacking the balance of Heady topper or the bitterness of Pliny but it’s a solid offering in the big IPA category.

Pours a golden amber with a two finger head that fades quickly. Nose is pine with mild citrus. Taste is the same but with a sweet malt balance. Excellent beer! I will be buying this again.

fidelis83 (2224) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Pours a peachy gold with a 2 finger, slightly chunky off white head. Aroma is big on toast, biscuit, and caramel, with some cereal and grainy notes right away, the hops coem in a bit light, but pleasant, floral, citrus, light tropical and a hint of tart berry bite. Flavor is sweet caramel, light toffee, biscuit, sweet malt, cereal dusty hay, then the hops, sweet and bitter citrus, some pine, light tropical, floral and hints of pine to the finish along with something that tastes a bit like I would imagine reduced, mixed melon juice tastes like. Medium body, sugary entry to slick, slightly dry finish with a moderately coarse, light carbonation. Good stuff, though it seems like it may be a little past it’s prime, but the date stamp is not properly applied, so it’s impossible to tell, though I am fairly sure it was bottled @ 16:55.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1004) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Gold, quick-fizz eggshell head, blast of sweet citrus aroma. Upon closer inspection, aroma also has bitter pine elements and light malt caramel. Flavor is equal parts pine sap and orange/grapefruit citrus. Light malt sweetness is generally overshadowed here. Somewhat boozy and hot, especially after sitting for a while. Medium-thick body with coarse carbonation. A great IPA; the aroma makes it! But the bitterness (when warm) is just too much for a great score.

ads135 (3690) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 14, 2012
One of the best beers I’ve had this year! Fullness of the hop experience tempered with an ample dosing of malted sweetness. Aggressive assault from start to finish, though never unbalanced and never too much. Grapefruit, pine, resin, and even some caramel. Delish.

neongolden (882) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2012
(bottle sample from a friend) Poured cool, a hazy bright golden orange with a decent white head. Strong aroma of grapefruit, pine, and some tropical fruit from the hops, a little malt sweetness with a hint of grain. Smells gorgeous and inviting with no trace of alcohol. Early in the palate that same combination of juicy hop flavours comes through, with a little malt and bittering hops balancing each other out. This turns into pine hops and more malt sweetness and bread with lingering fruit, and finishes dry but not bracingly bitter, the pine resin and caramel malt and alcohol all balanced out. Mouthfeel is medium with pleasingly soft carbonation. Smooth and well-integrated with a delightful nose and the alcohol well-hidden, more DIPAs should be so balanced and drinkable in my opinion.
