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.

Appearance is medium white head with clear amber. Aroma is a sweet earthy hop. Taste is bitter and grassy but with a nice citrus blend. Overall a solid IPA.

Pours a little hazy. This is a big beer. Lots of malt. Not too bitter, very well balanced. Its a bit fruity and sweet and mouth feel is a little sticky. Great beer not as bitter as I expected though.

Picked up a bomber bottle at Bevmo in San Diego, CA, and poured it into a tulip glass. Pours a nice amber color with a fizzy white head and light lacing. A lovely aroma of piny hops and tropical fruit. Flavors are beautifully balanced between the slight herbal bitterness of the hops, caramel malt notes, and very pronounced, juicy fruit flavors (citrus, pineapple, apricot). Alcohol flavor is well-hidden. This stuff is delicious.

Been waiting a while to get my hands on this one. Pours orange with a tight foamy head. Aroma is massive citrus of peach and grapefruit with a subtle earthiness from the significant malt presence and the danker notions of the hops. Flavor is intense but well balanced. Starts with piney notes with the fruit as well. Nice malty presence comes in and then an everlasting finish the echoes the lovely aroma. Great beer.

Bomber pours a clear golden color with a large white head that lasts and laces. The first whiff is strong citrus hops. Aroma is mostly grapefruit. Taste is bitter, but malts in the finish balance this. It has a medium body and just enough carbonation to excite. The high ABV is well hidden. A very good IIPA, but not quite as complex as my favorites.

Poured from a 22oz bottle. Pours a beautiful copper crystal clear color with no head. Aroma is that of pure hops, hops, hops, with a hint of alcohol detected. Burst of citrus fruit taste with a nice background of grass and pine. Initial palate feel is smooth and perfect. Hop bitterness is balanced well by the light maltiness of the beer. Bitterness on the palate lingers and becomes deeper in the back of the mouth as the nice bitterness lingers and draws me back for another taste. Alcohol is masked very well and allows me to focus more on the complex variety of hops used in this beer. VERY nice assertive Double IPA and one I would love to have again and again. Well Done!

I poured this brew into an Imperial Pint glass and it poured a light golden orange with about a finger and 1/2’s worth of a white head that left decent lacing. Immediately I could smell the hops(F.W. uses a combination of Amarillo, Cascade, Simcoe and Centennial hops in their dry hopping to give this beer it’s overwhelmingly awesome aroma) wafting from my glass and they gave off a strong and enjoyable aroma’s of Pineapple, Grapefruit and grass. The taste was very similar to the aroma except with pine notes mixed in as well and finished very dry. The mouth feel of the beer was very light and had a slight sting from the 9.5% ABV.

pours a murky amber hue with a small white head that is mostly diminishing aroma of tropical fruits and citrus - flavor just the same but pretty damn hoppy medium mouthfeel with light carb on tap at library alehouse in santa monica ca.
