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.

Tap. Iíve stayed away from this beer for YEARS because I wasnít impressed by Union Jack. This, on the other hand, is exceptional. Big beer with a lotbto offer. Opaque amber pour with excellent lacing. Aroma of passion fruit, poached pears, and tea leaves. Taste is malty sweet with grassy hops. Palate is full and amazing. Great beer.

650 mL bottle. A very, very well constructed double IPA. Nothing is out of place or balance. The hop profile changes as it warms, with lots of citrus early on, then more and more pine as I made my way through the beer. Stunningly drinkable for a beer this large. I want more.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2011 Orange gold pour with big foamy head and nice lacing. Hoppy aroma: spruce and orange. Flavor is sweet, with caramel and orange and general hoppiness, with a dry bitter sprucey finish.

Dark gold, fast receding head. Nose equals big hoppy tones, mostly grapefruit, a tad of pine, tropical fruit. Dry palate not as malty as normal IIPA, but not as deeply hoppy as an IPA, extremely good will be getting this again. (from BOTW).

draft at Coles, Buffalo, NY. Pours a golden orange color with small white head. Aroma is heavy grapefruit, tangerine, citrus pith, light herbal notes. Flavor is grapefruit upfront, slight alcohol tongue Grat bitterness followed up by some sweet malts. Delicious

On tap at the brewery in Paso. Pours a hazy golden orange with a great white and frothy head that stays a great deal as you drink. Aroma is of apple, pine pitch and some sweet something I canít fully pick up. (The way a DIPA should smell.) Taste of more apple, pineapple and some sweet caramel which really adds something Iíve not gotten in other DIPAs. Overall an awesome DIPA that I come back to again and again. Glad this is a permanent offering from FW.

On tap @ Lures, Crownsville Md-Golden pour w/a moderate head. Floral hop flavor, lots of citrus, & tangerine, Had quite a bite, but it was a nice sipper. Alcohol was well hidden. Good brew.

22 ounce bottle into tulip, no bottle date. Pours crystal clear orangish golden amber color with 1-2 fingers of a dense off white head with great retention that reduces to a fairly thick lacing cap. Some nice lacing clings to the glass as well. Aromas of huge orange, grapefruit, pine, caramel, and spices. Beautiful aromas here with big strength, this might be a fairly fresh bottle. Taste of huge caramel, pine, orange, grapefruit, spices, and a bit of tropical fruits. Nice amount of bitterness present on the finish with lingering notes of citrus, caramel, pine, and spices. Fantastic balance of bitterness and sweetness in this, nothing is overwhelming. Alcohol is practically invisible, only a very small warming on the finish noticeable. Medium carbonation and body, with a bit of a prickly and slightly creamy mouthfeel. Very drinkable stuff, I am surprised how easy this is going down at this alcohol level(9.5%). Overall, this is an absolutely incredible DIPA with great balance of flavor and smooth drinkability.

Bomber. Clear golden ale, citrus nose. Bitter but sweet and a very good attempt @ balance. So drinkable.

22oz bomber out of a pilsner glass. This is such an great brew. Every sip is quality. Every sip is an easy drinker, not harsh, not overpowering with abv, just striaght up IPA with a stellar kick. the aftertaste is what brings one back for more each time. Head starts a medium solid and then simmers down to a decent film throughout the brew. Color is dim golden copper with pale ale highlights, but the punch that lies within remains intact. Decadant hops, earthy and organic, soil is turned over and over and maintained, this brew is fresh. Nose is of sweet nectar, hops, citrus undertones and a decent balance of pine and florishing wild flowers. Ive never had a DIPA that keeps bringing me back to each sip in pure enjoyment. So glad I picked this one up and enjoyed on a late summers even in the hills of western Mass.
