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.

beerdad (397) - Kansas, USA - OCT 31, 2011
bottled at mcbc. pours lighter amber with a small off white head. aromas of citrus, caramel, and spruce. flavors similar. moderately sweet with light candy feel. palate is more sweetness from the alcohol than hoppy crispness, but overall it works very well. pretty decent beer with lasting flavor and bite on the tongue.

2011-10-29. Golden amber body with a modest white head. Lovely hoppy aroma and flavour with lots of green leafy hops and a bit of citrus. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate. Alcohol is not obvious at all, rather good and quite drinkable. Bottle shared by DuctTape

dfhhead25 (251) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Aroma- big hops, booze, breadiness, funk Appearance- incredible lacing, golden orange, nice foamy white head, extreme carbonation Taste- reminiscent of Nugget Nectar in some respects, same very smooth malty middle and bitter hop aftertaste, although this beer is more hoppy and is cleaner all the way around Palate- medium-bodied, crisp, refreshing Overall- I’m impressed. Nothing fancy, nothing life-altering. Just a damn good, smooth as hell, DIPA. Probably in my top 5 list of IPA’s. Very drinkable as well. Caution: Firestone Walker is a force to be reckoned with.

Slipstream (2073) - USA - OCT 27, 2011
It is good that this solid imperial IPA is available at reasonable prices. Piney aroma - a humid, green, IPA scent - and a clear, brassy pour. This appears to be Adrian’s brew of the year. It is mighty stuff - lots of full, dry hop bite that gets a touch harsh. Good overall, but I prefer FW’s Union Jack, a lighter IPA.

This beer could get you in trouble. Bomber to a Weizen glass. Pours a bright, cloudy amber with significant and foaming head. Crisp, floral, hoppy aroma. Goes down very, very smooth. Not sure how this is near 10%. Great Double IPA.

Sweet hoppy aroma, Sweet taste, Alcohol is well masked, slight malt with a big citrus hop finish. One of the best doubles I’ve had in a while.

Bottle from Whole Foods Market - P Street, October 2011. Clear medium copper with a medium white head. Very hoppy aroma and taste with resin, caramel, pine and citrus. Nicely balanced and with a great bitterness. I really liked this one!

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - OCT 23, 2011
(22 oz. bottle from Candia Road Convenience) Pours hazy amber-orange with a finger or so of off white head. Big hoppy aroma - grapefruit and pine over vanilla. Mouthfeel smooth, medium-full, very lightly prickly, a bit sticky. Weepy dabs of lacing in the snifter. Flavor of big sweet grapefruit/citrus and lighter pine with vanilla and lighter caramel. Tasty, sweet and hoppy big IPA with lingering bitterness.

MiP (13782) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2011
Draught, 9.5%. Good grassy aroma. Hazy golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour starts off powerful, alcoholic and hoppy. Caramelly and sweet. A bit of hop burn. Caramelly and sweet finish. Late hop bitterness. Gets a bit rough after a while, but a good beer.
