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.

August 13, 2011 - bomber from lagerloather shared with MesandSim, Reakt, Nate2g and others. Am I finally understanding why so many Brits hate crystal malt? Because I was stunned by how underwhelmed I was by this beer - how most of the British-made IPAs I had during my trip blew this out of the water, and none of them used crystal malt....hmmm. Anyway. Bright, slightly hazy amber-gold with a smallish frothy/creamy beige head. Aroma is quite sweet, a bit boozy, herbal, resinous, pungent and weirdly medicinal - barely a 7. Taste is okay, but underwhelming, a real caramel character to the malt, it distracts from the solid dry somewhat characterless grapefruit bitterness, and that earthy, medicinal character intrudes as well - blue basil? - whatever, I don’t care for it much; a bit boozy too. Sticky mouthfeel, undercarbonated, longish bitter finish, sharply herbal and pungent (yeah, basil .... why, FFS?). Not BAD, but I wouldn’t have it again.

Golden caramel body. Floral and citrus hops all come together nicely. Overall a good value too. Not too sweet and would love to try it fresh

22 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange with a 1 finger white head. Excellent lace and head retention. Strong citrus hop aroma with a touch of honey. Well balanced with malt and honey up front, doing a dangerously good job of masking the alcohol. Then a blast of floral, citrus hops towards the middle, lasting to the end. Heavy, full body with a mouthcoating palate. The finish is long and bitter, but with a hint of sweetness. Will seek this one out agian.

Pours clear golden, reasonable off white head. notes of grapefruit, pine on the nose. Malt bomb, pine, pineapple hop bitterness. rich, sweet and a slight bit of syrup texture. sticky on the lips. Quite good but was hoping for a bit more...

22 oz bottle from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, California, served in an English pint. Pours clear orange-amber with a small white head. The head fades quickly to a thin remnant, leaving a small amount of lace. The nose has big notes of grapefruit and orange, along with flowers, pineapple, some pine and a touch of caramel. The flavour is intensely bitter throughout, with smooth pine, citrus carried over from the aroma and plenty of resinous hops. The finish is long and bitter, with a peppery note. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent imperial IPA. The aroma is quite beautiful, with harmonious citrus, fruit and pine. It is flavourful, but also subtle and quite enjoyable. Another gem from Firestone Walker. 2011-08-13

DialSquare (2308) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Bomber from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pleasant aroma of juicy fruits - apricot and orange. Tastes are juicy citrus hops with strong earthy caramel malt backing. Not a crazy hop bomb - floral bitter, but focus is the citrus. Good balance. Medium texture with lightly dry bitter finish. Covers the alcohol well. Amazing brew.

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 16, 2011
Weicher, gleichzeitig starker Hopfenantrunk. Dieser ist ausgewogen und bietet ein gleichermaßen hopfiges, grasiges und fruchtiges Feld. Im Mittelteil erkennt man den dahinterstehenden Alkohol, der aber in keiner Form einen negativen Eindruck hinterlässt sondern eher zum allgemeinen guten Geschmack beiträgt. Blumig, weiterhin vollmundig, Süßlich aber mit gelungenem herben Augleich. Ein rundum gelungenenes IIPA! 8/12/12/13/10/12

Pours copper with a light white head. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, hops. Flavor is piney, citrus , hops with hints of grapefruit. Pretty refreashing beer.

Pours a clear copper with a small head and a little lacing. Nice citrus aroma. Great hop flavor that finishes cleanly. Has a bit of a maltly backbone at the end.

Beaver (1219) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 15, 2011
22oz bottle. Pours a clear golden orange with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is floral, piney, resiney hops with some fruit.

The flavor is a little sweet malt and melon with a big piney, peppery, resinous hop finish. Lots of bitterness that lingers in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a monster onedimensional hop bomb. This is much more bitter in the bottle than on draft. This and the Union Jack remind me a lot of Odell’s IPA - very similar flavor profile.
