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.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 17, 2012
On tap @ Cafe Amsterdam. Clear golden yellow with a thick, white head and nice lacing. Aroma is big grapefruit, pine resin, tropical fruit and some sugary bubble gum. Flavor is firmly bitter but with a bit of malt sweetness and some light alcohol. Medium body with active carbonation and a long bitter finish. Very nice IIPA, tons of hop aroma and a fairly balanced taste.

brigg (521) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 15, 2012
(22oz bottle) A clear, bright orange amber, with a big off-white head. Light lacing on the glass. Strongly citrus aroma: lots of orange notes, also grapefruit. Also very floral, some fresh grass, sweet caramel malt. Full bodied, creamy with an oily feel. Bitter hop flavor up front before rounding out with some sweetness. Finish is long and bitter--the bitterness seems to keep building.

A deliciously fruity and crisp IPA with an aroma that is not easily forgotten. Color is golden amber with decent lacing. An excellent blend of malts and hops which mask a quite potent ale.

MBrausen (69) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Reviewed from notes. Poured from a bottle into a CBS snifter. A. Pours a deep orange color with a 3mm head, rests after 30 seconds to some slight bubbles around the edge and a thin ring. Slight lacing on the glass. S. Smells of grapefruit, sweet and ripe orange peel, mild pine and lots of other citrus. T. Tastes if lots of grapefruit, tangy citrus, tart and sourness of the grapefruit coming through, slight bits of orange and a hint of pine. M. Medium body, mild carbonation, wet feeling and a hint coarse. O. A good beer. It wasnít anything out of this world. Iíve had many better DIPAís. Itís worth a try and tastes good, but not something to go searching for.

Pours a slightly amber copper orange with medium white head, decent lacing. Aroma is obvious of citrus hops but decently balanced with malt sweetness. Flavor matches well, but a little extra sweet holds it back from the elite DIPAs IMO. Extremely good DIPA though.

boxofrane (2259) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2013 Been quite awhile so iím rerating this. Bottle from Park Towne Bev. Pours clear copper with a small white head that quickly dissipates. There is a ton of carbonation in the glass. The aroma is loaded with citrus including grapefruit, mango, and then a big astringent run.. some pine.. awesome smelling brew. The taste is assertively hoppy with a medium bitterness that is followed by a huge citrus taste. This guy is heavy on the grapefruit and the carbonation cuts the alcohol very well.

bigtaster (593) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Pours clear golden orange color with large off white head. Nice tropical fruit on the nose, pineapple, apricot, grass. Clean medium body, not a ton of bitterness, sweet maltyness, mixed with nice fruity hop flavor, long finish. Great completely that all works together.

Severian (42) - Saint Charles, Missouri, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Pours thick, dark golden and opaque. Thin but long lasting white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, grass and grapefruit. Taste is more of the same, but with a sweet malty backbone. The taste lingers - a mixture of sweet malty goodness and bitter hops. Med. thick mouthfeel. Not as carbonated as it looks. Very good. No taste of alcohol for me. A delight.

Mcfa0779 (57) - SLC, Utah, USA - FEB 8, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2012 Pouts a clear golden amber with a moderate amount of white head. Nose is strong of floral, pine, and citrus hops. Mouthfeel is moderate. Taste starts sweet with brown sugar syrup, followed by strong grapefruit and piney bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden. Well done to style, a good example of imperial IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I really like this one. Lots of citrus (heavy grapefruit) hints of mango, gorgeous golden orange. I could go on, but itís all been said already. IPAs are pretty much my favorite style, and this one I bought on a recommendation from a beer-buddy so it wasnít that much of a reach. Just drink it.
