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.

I enjoyed this quality beer poured from a large bottle into a trumpet glass. The beer had a rich aroma of citrus, spices, pine, and a bit of clove and some grassy notes. It was a clear, light amber-gold color with a big foamy white head that had good retention and a lot of cling and lacing. Its taste had a good bitter graininess, with a presence of alcohol, and a touch of sour citrus flavor; it was not sweet. The beer had a thick mouthfeel and was very fizzy with good carbonation. It was a very dry beer, strong, and best for sipping.

22oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Bottle on date 1/5/12 (95 days ago) Aroma: oranges, peaches, bubblegum, lemon, lime, hint of grapefruit Appearance: Very clear pout and 1 finger frothy off-white head that faded slowly. Taste: medium sweet, mild sour, medium bitter Palate: medium body, thin texture, slick. lively carbonation. mildy bitter, sweet, and slighy sour finish. Very light and crisp. Refreshing. Overall: I like this. More aroma and flavor than Union Jack. Less bitter as well. Surprised at the 9.5%, would guess closer to 7.5 to 8%. This beer is very well balanced without being too sweet nor too bitter. Will pick this up again and try to get a fresher bottle.

Pours with a citrus aroma. Dense gold color. The malts are apparent after an initial bitterness. Finishes smooth. The big alcohol content is apparent throughout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Acquired a bomber at mile high wine & spirits in Lakewood , CO. Poured into a goblet glass . First impression is the smell- this beer smells like a hoppy pack of juicy fruit!!!! Beautiful golden yellow hue that is really intriguing . First sips remind me of a west coast styled double IPA that is very one dimensional . It has very nice balance between grapefruit & pine but not much else. Good for a Pliny lover in need of a good IIPA but no substitute .

Bomber and on tap. Great Double India Pale Ale. A smooth, well balanced big brew. Lots of grapefruit and pine smoothed out with the sweet caramel. Long bitter finish with a touch of alcohol burn. Tasty.

On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a clear orange-old. Caramel and a touch of biscuit with moderate pine bitterness. Honestly, a bit one-dimensional. I was expecting a lot more. Solid but pretty forgettable.

Pours to a big head that recedes quickly to about half a finger length. Smells mostly piney with a good bit of citrus as well. Thick texture upon the mouth, piney hops strike first, then a hit of sweetness, and finally a fine malt aftertaste blending with the hops, along with a little bit of an alcohol burn (it *is* 9.5% ABV, after all), but not over-the-top burn at all. Definitely as full of flavor as I remember it being the first time I had it about two months ago.

Draft. Poured a golden orange with a bright white head. Big grapefruit, tangerine, and citrus aroma. Taste starts out sweet, very smooth in the middle, big grapefruit, and a moderately bitter finish. Very well balanced, but still very hoppy. Another glass please.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 Golden with a lasting white head. Aroma of hop resin, grass and floral. Taste matches the aroma nicely with a cleansing palate and good bitterness, pretty smooth for how bitter it is, some sweetness balances it out.
