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.

On tap at the brewery in Paso. Pours a hazy golden orange with a great white and frothy head that stays a great deal as you drink. Aroma is of apple, pine pitch and some sweet something I can’t fully pick up. (The way a DIPA should smell.) Taste of more apple, pineapple and some sweet caramel which really adds something I’ve not gotten in other DIPAs. Overall an awesome DIPA that I come back to again and again. Glad this is a permanent offering from FW.

On tap @ Lures, Crownsville Md-Golden pour w/a moderate head. Floral hop flavor, lots of citrus, & tangerine, Had quite a bite, but it was a nice sipper. Alcohol was well hidden. Good brew.

22 ounce bottle into tulip, no bottle date. Pours crystal clear orangish golden amber color with 1-2 fingers of a dense off white head with great retention that reduces to a fairly thick lacing cap. Some nice lacing clings to the glass as well. Aromas of huge orange, grapefruit, pine, caramel, and spices. Beautiful aromas here with big strength, this might be a fairly fresh bottle. Taste of huge caramel, pine, orange, grapefruit, spices, and a bit of tropical fruits. Nice amount of bitterness present on the finish with lingering notes of citrus, caramel, pine, and spices. Fantastic balance of bitterness and sweetness in this, nothing is overwhelming. Alcohol is practically invisible, only a very small warming on the finish noticeable. Medium carbonation and body, with a bit of a prickly and slightly creamy mouthfeel. Very drinkable stuff, I am surprised how easy this is going down at this alcohol level(9.5%). Overall, this is an absolutely incredible DIPA with great balance of flavor and smooth drinkability.

Bomber. Clear golden ale, citrus nose. Bitter but sweet and a very good attempt @ balance. So drinkable.

22oz bomber out of a pilsner glass. This is such an great brew. Every sip is quality. Every sip is an easy drinker, not harsh, not overpowering with abv, just striaght up IPA with a stellar kick. the aftertaste is what brings one back for more each time. Head starts a medium solid and then simmers down to a decent film throughout the brew. Color is dim golden copper with pale ale highlights, but the punch that lies within remains intact. Decadant hops, earthy and organic, soil is turned over and over and maintained, this brew is fresh. Nose is of sweet nectar, hops, citrus undertones and a decent balance of pine and florishing wild flowers. Ive never had a DIPA that keeps bringing me back to each sip in pure enjoyment. So glad I picked this one up and enjoyed on a late summers even in the hills of western Mass.

1. Look - The beer looks good. There are a rush of bubbles and a sturdy head. The beer is very clear with no sediment and golden in color. 2. Sniff - A delicate citrus aroma is present with hints of grapefruit. 3. Sip - A smooth initial sip followed up with a strong bitterness that is definitely long lasting. The bitterness is a desirable quality of this Double IPA. 4. Another Look – The head is long lasting with steady bubbles and looks very appétit zing. 5. Evaluate - Overall, I like this beer. Its flavor is full and long lasting with a great bitterness characteristic. I would most definitely recommend this Double IPA to family and friends. This beer is a top tier quality example of the Double IPA style.

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Bomber, bottled 6.3.11. Pours clear and bright orange, lively, with a 2-finger creamy beige head that leaves some sticky lacing. Aromas of sweet and juicy papaya, guava, and pine. Also present are caramel, some pepper, and citrus peel. The flavor is bitter pine and candied grapefruit peel, sweet earthy malt, and spruce; a nice bitter finish, with lingering grapefruit peel. Medium carbonation and full-bodied, slightly warming, and dry. Very nice. [781]

My first experience with Firestone Walker. this IIPA has a nice balance of malts and hops. The overpowering features at the nose and mouth are grapefruit,orange, and a touch of spice. A very drinkable IIPA. The only problem is I find the bottom of the bomber all to fast!

On tap at Rose Alley in New Bedford. Served in a chalice. Comes in big and meaty. Lots of grapefruit and spruce. Hits hard like a heavyweight. Very drinkable though. Nice way to start the day.
