Bottle, shared with Parksy. Clear honey gold, moderate creamy white head that leaves ropy lace. Intense tropical fruit aroma and flavour: pineapple, passionfruit, grapefruit, sweet pine. Full bodied with a beautiful balance between bright fruity juicy hoppiness and well structured sweet malt and long intense bitterness. Truly the best balanced IIPA Iíve had in recent memory. Outstanding!

Mmmmmmm, solid all the way through DIPA here. Nice and floral, grapefruit and citrused out. Really liked the dryness factor of the malt and how it blended quite perfectly with the hop profile. Thick, bold, and full. Damn good stuff. Wish it wasnít $8!!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a really nice beer - but like other IPAís with more than two or three hop varietals, the flavor gets muddied and you canít really tell what youíre drinking.
A - Big grapefruit and apricot, and very floral.
C - Dark copper
T - Patches of both sweet and bitter, though like I said above, all of the different hop varietals muddy the flavor.
P - Despite the high alcohol content, itís a really drinkable beer.
Serving - Troegs Mad Elf tulip glass.

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.

Bomber. Pours a rich golden color with full white head. Aromas of citrus, pine and slight caramel. Great citrus hop flavor, some nice sweetness inthe middle, and a bitter sweet finish; alcohol is well hidden...good stuff.

I really enjoyed this one, thanks zach. It had a nice pour, it was pale with a light head. The aroma was a very citrus like beer and it was quite citrusy with a nice bitterness. Good beer, would like some more

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Poured crystal-clear, lighter orangey-golden with a sticky whitish head. The aroma opened with a deep blend of honey and fruity notes, topped by an aggressive, but well-executed hop barrage (tangerine, floral, and spicy pine led).. black pepper and more tangerine trailed.. excellent! The flavor found bready malts to go along with honey at the core.. floral and tangerine bitterness surrounded, amplified by alcohol warmth.. dry, lightly-scratchy peppery bitterness on the belly-warming finish. Medium-plus bodied and well-balanced on the palate.. this was a big beer, but was juicy, and everything worked well together.

Bottle at Dark Lord Day. Thanks for the share. Poured light golden brown with small head. Very citrus with light pine in the aroma. Similar taste with light honey in the back. One of my favourites from the day.

Magnificent! Powerful and sweet with genuine pine forest cone bitterness so aromatic and delicious. A treat with malt backbone sufficient to hang out yet get of the frikiní way. Good firey mouthfeel and firey alcohol available for your pleasure at the Iron Monkey JC. There is some well defined juicy citrus but i could not get over the wonderful pine character. A great sipper.
