Strong alcohol ester, grab you by the neck and scream " I gonna get you buzzed" 9.5 then smooth and surreptitious ...an IPA with an adult ABV

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Tap. Golden with creamy white head-decent size, decent lacing, decent retention. Smells like I like it. Piney, grape fruity, resent, maybe a little passion fruity. Not a lot of sweetness in the nose. Grapefruit comes through in the flavor, followed by bitter. Not much sweetness here either. Nicer long hop finish, a bit warming, soft carbonation. You’ll put this up amongst the faves. Was just reminded of the 5 in the forums today- do here is one for me.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, orange appearance with not too much head. Great hoppy aroma and taste with a bit of an alcohol aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear blond color, decent head and quite a lot of lace. Tropical fruit in the nose and a bit of nutty malt. Decen balance but not really vibrant or expressive. Drinkable but forgetable.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle) Pours clear golden with a cream off-white head. The aroma holds overripe yellow fruits/tropical fruit salad, watermelon, hard candy, floral perfume, olive oil, old/light sweaty sock, sweet citrus (orange, tangerines, mild lime peel and grapefruits) and green-ish hints of grass, pines and mild minty/peppery herbs. Undertones of toasted malt, doughy bread and honey. Juicy, fresh and candy-sweetish on the nose. The flavor is light to medium sweet, near medium bitter and tiny to light acidic. Super juicy flavor of orange, grapefruit, tangerine, mango, peach, lychee and passion fruit. Herbal, piney and grassy undertones. Touch of toast, honey, doughy bread and caramel. The mouthfeel is clean (minus the yeastiness), juicy, soft and tiny astringent with a light to medium carbonation. Citric, tropical, piney and herbal finish. Medium bodied. Passar bra till smörgåstårta.

There’s a lot of mediocre IPA/DIPA’s out there. But each time I taste Double Jack, preferably fresh, I know that I still like hoppy beer, if they are well made. One of my favorites.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A truly superb Double IPA.
Ar: Extremely hoppy (citrus) with a little bit of pine as well. Caramel malts are quite apparent as well. A very well-balanced brew.
Ap: Pours an amber-orange with a nice, large white head.
T: Grapefruit and other citrus hops, although certainly not the most bitter IPA. There is some sweetness here as well, though perhaps not as much as the aroma might suggest.
P: Medium-to-heavy body.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Copper color in the glass. Pleasant fruity, citrus, resin hop aroma. Quite bitter but not in an unpleasant way, it all stays in balance overall. My first beer from this brewery and I must say I am impressed.

(from notes- tasting party) Pours a light orange, w/ some white, creamy bubbles. Love the nose on this! Peach, apricot, citrus. Nice malt backbone to support all of the hops. Fruity, sweet. One of my faves!
