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 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.

A - Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is full of grapefruit, pineapple, pine, and citrus hops, sweet caramel malts, and some biscuit. T - Starts off with grapefruit, pineapple, and citrus hops with some bitterness and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, lots of pine hops come through with more bitterness and a bit more caramel malts. The finish is a mix of grapefruit and pine hops with some resiny bitterness and some sweet caramel malts and a touch of booze. M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, bitter, and resiny finish. D - Very drinkable. Very nice hops profile and bitterness and the overall balance is spot on.

Bomber - honey gold in color with a decent white head and nice lacing on the glass. Has a strong citrus nose and a great hoppy flavor to it. It has a nice medium-heavy mouthfeel and while it has a dry finish it’s not overdone. Definitely one of the better DIPAs out there.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 5, 2012
This is a solid DPA. Pours golden honey with a hue of orange and light lacing of white head. Huge aroma of hoppy citrus (grapefruit/orange), malty caramel, and a dab of basil. Medium body of perfectly balanced caramel malt with a touch of sweetness, and bitter citrus that is just slightly resiny. Finish is smooth and clean with a light lingering of bitter orange peel. Insanely balanced and drinkable for 9.5% ABV.

Aroma is pure and clean hops. The maltiness in this one is more subdued, probably due in large part to the high alcohol content. It's a nice balance. The hot split the pallet just right and lingers a bit but it never feels too overwhelming for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fraternie (947) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2015 A perfectly balanced IPA, with caramel maly mingling with tons of grapefruit and orange citrus/ tropical fruits here, finishing with an intense piney hop background and a spicy undertone. Smooth and balanced, with hops lingering long, with very little trace of heat. Yummy stuff.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 This is about as perfect a double IPA as I have tried. I am a huge Stone Ruination fan, but in a slightly less macho way, I think this is better. Pours a beautiful amber, with a lacy head that paints the glass as you drink it (rapidly). Aroma is strongly citrus, mostly grapefruit. The finish is bitter and at the same time flowery-fruity, and it doesn?t leave you puckering like the Ruination. Overall a beautiful, quaffable beer for hop lovers.

No mistaking this beer on the nose. Hoppy character jumps out of the glass and smacks you in the face asking for its money. Nice dark amber color to it but the head leaves a bit to be desired. The taste is hops through and through with a touch of raw dough. Grapefruit pith, burnt citrus and pine needles leave a great bitter ending that lingers around.

Aroma is big, piney hops with strong grapefruit and citrus notes. Massive earthy/leafy bittering hops with a pleasant fruity zest. Very bittering hops with a formidable bready malt base falling into a strong presence of alcohol. Overall, this is a serious brew with massive hops. I’d give this an A+ rating.

bomber picked up in vacation in CA; i got more piney than citrus in aroma. thick palate - taste - definitely felt the hop kick and booze; the more I drank the better it got (it packs a punch) - very hoppy but not bitter with strong malts; this leans to the hop side; well made beer but too much to be my fav ipa..
