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.

A nice gold color and a white lacy head. The aroma is very citrusy (lemon zest) and piney. The flavor is strong on the pine, with a somewhat spicy aftertaste where the citrus appears. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is intensly hoppy and sweet. Wow ... The hops are strong but there is a very unique floral taste.

Sampled at the ’12 GABBF. Clear deep golden color with a sticky off white head. Huge hop candy nose with tons of grapefruit. This is a hop jolly rancher beer. Sweet with red grapefruit, pineapple and lots of sugars. All supported by a thick malty base. This is a big IIPA.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2012 I hope my opinion wasn’t to tainted by the Port Brewing Co. double IPA. This did not have the same full body. I had it a second time and I enjoyed it, but there are better IPAs out there

OmegaX (1318) - Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2012
First Firestone Walker brew. Snifter. Nose is copious amount of pine and grapefruit with an earthy scent. Like a grapefruit had sex with a pine tree that had a bee hive in it. Honey undertones also were in the aroma. This one poured a nice golden amber color with an effervescent, lively head. Taste was full of hops and smooth caramel malts. Some honey malt crept into the mix as well. Overall this was very drinkable and enjoyable. Bitter and sweet flavors meld perfectly here.

Chipalsa (1311) - Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2012
A big thanks to OmegaX for this one. The scent was FULL of honey and hops, a tad like tree sap altogether. Tasted fantastic, lots of hops that were fresh and bitter with a sharp aftertaste were enticing. Undertones of rich malts and smooth alcohol demolished the palate with aggressive notes of grapefruit and graham cracker. Insane.

Bomber into pint glass. Huge billowing head retreats but leaves its signature on the glass, notes of Pine needles, mango, grapefruits. This is a well balanced and world class DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(bottle). A new find complements of Keg_Juggler. Crystal clear golden complexion with thick white head. Aroma is intensely grapefruit and hops. The flavor bites with hops and fades inter more mellow aftertaste. Smooth palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rather nice and fruity aroma with american hops. Some resin, peach and mango. Flavour is rather hoppy and fruity with peaches and some mangos. Somewhat sweet, but not in a disturbing way. Very nice DIPA!

65 cl bottle. Bottled on 04.10.2013.
Lots of citric fruits and caramel on the nose, quite piney too, resinous hops and faint herbal tones. Somewhat sweet orange and mandarin on the flavor, caramel, resin, pale malts and hops. The bottle is not that fresh anymore, though it feels a bit more balanced now, alcohol comes through a bit but doesn’t disturb at all, hop profile is still very nice. Excellent.
65 cl bottle. Bottled on 18.11.2011.
Pours clear golden color with medium head. Aroma of exotic hoppy fruits grass, mild caramel notes and pine needles. Flavor of exotic fruits, mild grass and herbal notes, caramel, spices and grape fruit. A bit sweet but nicely hopped and crisp.
