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.

bear vs. griffin thing! who wins. griffin thing. look at those claws. pours gold, white head. nose of fresh pale malt and hoppy goodiness. mouth: exactly what im seeking, solid clean malt, with fresh green suck in my nose hops. overall, firestone has for me consistently giving fresh tasting brew, yes i live close to the west coast but ive had other cali brews that fail to achieve such a distinction.

Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours crystal clear deep old gold (clearest IPA/Impy IPA I’ve ever seen, I think. No hint of haze whatsoever); lacework sheets the glass. Aroma is catboxy, grapefruity, hint of coconut (wha??). This is how I like my imperial IPAs to smell like--nice and hoppy, limited malt presence, and most importantly, no vegetation! Taste is bittersweet with a lingering bitter finish; flavor is citrusy backed by honeyed bready malt. Carbonation is soft, body full. Nice one, but it doesn’t top Port Brewing’s Hop 15 as far as recent Imperial IPAs I’ve tried. This is one of those beers where you relish a good belch...nice resinous hoppy flavor comes back up onto the palate...disgusting, I know.

I like my IPAs a little hoppier in the nose than this was. That said, it was otherwise a very spectacular beer. Kinda creamy mouthfeel, great bitterness, alcohol very well hidden. I would definitely buy this again if it wasn’t so expensive in Germany. (11€ per 650ml bottle)

Has big bold scents of hops, sweet and malty notes as well. Taste is a nice balance of malt and hops, has a nice bitter hop flavor, smooth finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had on tap at Palmer Place. Served in a tulip. A: Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a nice off-white head. Sticky lace follows me down the glass. S: Nice notes of citrus and some grassy with a little grapefruit. T: Citrus smoothness, some grapefruit with a nice fruity sweetness up front. The malt body comes through in the middle and finishes a little bitter hops bite. M: Medium to light bodied with a coating quality to it. Nicely carbonated. O: Very solid offering from FW. The flavors blended together nicely. I haven’t been disappointed by any of their offerings yet. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-16-2011

Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Aroma - Sweet, a bit of pine and citrus Appearance - Clear Orange, minimal head Taste - lightly to medium sweet Palate - Medium body, thin texture with soft carbination and lightly bitter finish. Other notes: served in 12oz snifter, ten minutes after in fridge. Very well balanced beer. Great IIPA if you’re not looking to get your tongue kicked in by hops. Another great beer by FSW. Cheers!

Pours clear amber with a thick white head and lots of lace. Aromas are wonderful fruity hops. Taste follows suit with the aroma, tons of bitterness, medium body well hidden alcohol. This is a palate wrecker!

Bottle at Ben’s. Thanks Craig. Light Amber with a white head. Aroma is tropical with lots of Pines and some caramel. Not wildly bitter. Well balanced and not particularly radge. Safe by IIPA standards.
