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.

Spicy citrus and pine oil aroma. Bready malt balance. Intense hop character. The appearance is bright, clear orange. tons of carbonation. Decent head retention. The flavor is spicy, woody hop at first; burns the tongue a bit. Malts of earthy amber stock; red and spicy. Some finished wood. (Great burp!) Very spiced up. An alcoholic burn at the end. The feel is chewy, fizzy, thick and very sticky. A big, woody Imperial IPA with a solid balance. Burns just a little.

Bottle at Theis tasting. Pours hazy amber with a tan head. Aroma is heavy hoppy with notes of caramel, pine, peach, grape and tee. Flavour is very smooth and balanced, typical IIPA with notes of bitter hops, caramel, peach and pine.

22 oz bomber
Aroma: pine/citrus/spicy/earthy hops
Taste: get a lot of the same hop profile with additional bitterness/resin, sweet malts, light toasted malt
This is one of the best IIPAs that I have had. Will have to buy more while I still can.

Beerman6686 (4346) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Ths poured a cloudy orange colot with an off white head, Arona was cutrs fruits, and a good amount of caramel, a little disappointing. Flavor was very odd, Most of what I would consider mediocre IPAs start of with good hop, flavor but dispate into malt, this one was the complete opposite. Started of malty and then finished with a fruity bitter finish. Odd and meh.

Great hop flavor...bright and clean, almost like wet-hopped. Bottle taken care of, but still substantial chill haze. The alcohol is there, but not harsh and is well behind the hop flavor. The bitterness is pretty low for a DIPA. Tons of hops added at the end of brewing. Quite pleased with this one.

(Flasche) Farblich ein dunkles Gelb mit einem roten Einstich. Das Aroma ist fruchtig-tangerineartig oder graipfruitartig und das sehr schön "rund". Der Grundgeschmack ist süßlich-malzig und im Abgangist es recht breit Bitter. Auf der Zungenspitze und Retronasal schmeckt man das fruchtige Aroma. Zusammengefasst ist es sehr lecker, aromatisch und man schmeckt den Alkohol nicht.

jfb (3818) - Freising, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2011
(bottle) pours a clear deep golden colour with a frothy white head. very tangy aroma of pineapples, mango, passion fruit and ginger, with light notes of powdered sugar, very resinous. flavour is mostly the same, lots of resin and tropical fruits, with a hint of caramel and a pronounced grapey bitter finish. medium to heavy-bodied with average carbonation. nicely balanced with subdued sweetness.

This starts with a nice big punch of hop aroma, orange and grapefruit being the predominant notes. Pours a clear amber, with a huge fluffy white head. The flavor is not quite a punch of hops, as it is an aggressively hop forward beer, with a big malt profile to soften and balance it out. Very easy drinking, with just a hint of heat pointing out the alcohol content. I’m very impressed with this one.

[4048-20111029] 650mL bottle. Tangerine hoppy peel aroma. Clear, orange brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Bitter grainy orange peel flavour has a lingering bitterness. Medium-full body. Tasty hoppy brew. (8/3/8/4/16) 3.9
Overheard: "I’m uh, drinking a lot of vodka tonight."

Excellent Double IPA - shared a bomber with friend at the Freakin Frog in Las Vegas. This beer shares a seat in the same class as Pliny the Elder. Really enjoyed it and wish I could get it here in Columbus.
