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.

perfect orange with about two fingers of creamy white head. Grapefruit, tangerine, maybe some peach and pine on the nose. Medium mouthfeel. Fruity notes from the hops are present, but the malt is shown nicely as well. No note at all of the 9.5%, this is a fantastic double IPA.

Just when I thought I was getting sick of IPAís... Aroma is citrus and spice with a huge hit of hoppy pineapple and grapefruit Taste is much like the aroma with a sweet malt background. I wonít call it a backbone but itís there. Palate is dry and thin, refreshing. Overall: Some of my IPA love returned to me with this bomber.

Clear pour, sticky head, golden color. Smells of pine and citrus hops. Grapefruit notes for flavor. Nice bite on the finish, disguises the alcohol. One of my favorites.

Appearance: A gorgeous deep amber and super, super clear. Just amazing. This color knows what it is and states it proudly. Thereís a tall three finger head that takes itís time dissipating. Quite a time too. Smell: Tangerine jumps to the front with orange and lime backing it up. Citrus dominates the aroma profile and itís all the I can get to here. Mouthfeel: Syrupy but carried extremely well by the alcohol and carbonation. Itís refreshing but heavy. Itís light but strong. Itís delightful. Taste: Burning hops step to the top and like Hoptimum, you need a few sips before you can really start to judge the beer. Thereís a distinct bready character that lies underneath helping disguise just how alcoholic this beer is. You really have to be careful with this brew. Lime and tangerine start to appear next and are helped along with a sweet, juicy fruit flavor. Almost like mango or passionfruit. Thereís a very clean finish Overall: This only gets me more excited about the Sucaba barleywine sitting in the cellar. Firestone-Walker has impressed me on their first showing. Iíll definitely be back for more based on this and I suggest any hop fans head out and pick this up. Not for the hops (thereís hoppier stuff out there) but for the balance here. This is a really great Imperial IPA example and everyone should get a chance to enjoy it.

Picked up a 22 oz. bottle from my trip to Bertís Better Beers today. Had to see what the hype was about. Smells mostly pine with a good bit of citrus lemon and grapefruit. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Oily, syrupy texture. Fruity, resiny hops in the flavor with plenty of malt to help balance it. Bitterness is there throughout the sip, yet it has a short pine abrupt finish. For 9.5% the alcohol is pretty well hidden. Well made.

Bottle. Pour is bright orange. Aroma is strong with hops and fruit. Very good smell. Taste is borderline amazing. It has bitterness, but not too much. A very good beer and has a lot of fruit. Some bitterness in the aftertaste, but not much at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mansquito (4334) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria tap ($8): Pours an orange with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit hops, and some more hops, and a well-balanced malt backbone. Taste is normal DIPA, but done exceptionally well. I donít think that this beer breaks any boundaries, but it does successfully make a very well-crafted and, more so, well-balanced DIPA.

dresden (1205) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 21, 2012
On draft. Incredible hop aroma of grapefruit, pineapple, peach and other citrus with a little pine. Tastes like it smells but itís incredibly easy drinking at 9.5%. One of the best IIPA I know of.
