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.

This beer is worth the price simply for the aroma! Smells like heaven. Rapidly becoming my go-to beer. So glad that it is readily available locally. Rates up there with the best West Coast DIPAs for sure.

Originally reviewed: 3/20/12. Brought back a bottle of this from my recent trip out to Cali. Bottled on 1/26/12. Poured into a tall goblet. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a thick white foamy head capping it off. Sticky globs of lace cling to the glass. The aroma on this one is stellar. Big citrus notes of tangerine, orange, grapefruit; light lemony-pine scent as well. Floral and sweet, just how I like it. This one is lacking in bite, as the beer is quite smooth, almost erring on thin. This goes down really slick. The flavors are not as pronounced as I had hoped. The citrus character is almost muted, and the hops are not all that flavorful. The alcohol comes forward a bit as there is an ethanol wash on the finish. I was really excited for this one, but it ended up a bit of a letdown. Not a terrible beer, just a slightly above average one.

Tap @ The Front Door: Crystal clear like dark apple juice. Nice fuzzy head and abounding with juniper aroma. On first taste, you are confronted with a TON of taste - junipers, apricots, pine needles, some grapefruit rind and alcohol. The aftertaste is a bit musty and not as sweet and syruppy as many 2 IPAs but still excellent!

20 apr 2012, bottle. Light gold and. clear. Nose is equally faint alcohol and grapefruit hops with prominent strong ale malt. Med body, slightly sugary, dainty fizzy. Pretty alright. Some strong ale alcohol with faint alcohol twinge and some reding bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The smell is the best part of this double IPA, citrusy and piney notes dominate. The beer pours with minimal head and has a nice, somewhat light appearance. The taste is certainly reminiscent of the aroma, but the alcohol notes are strong for me; not hidden well at all. Strong hop bitterness throughout the taste. For me this is a good, but not great, beer.

Paleish orange pour with mild head,some lacing Good hop aroma fruity,sweet bready,pastry malt,tangerine,some floral,somewhat musty fresh fruit on the tropical side papaya/coconut etc.. Taste is hoppy with dry malt not quite toasty but a bit dry, sharp citrus hop sting on the tip of the toungepretty huge tangering taste and a rhindy orange/grapefruit type bittering some menthol/herbal-maybe the alcohol behind it.Id be curious how this ages. Strongly hop flavored/bittered with big tangerine taste upfront citrus some floral and in bittering with grapefruit or orange rind with sweet malt lurking in thebackground-overall.Id rather try the regular ipa-this is a double im not real huge on.I just wouldnt run out and get another bomber too soon.

This is a great beer. Has a sweet taste, followed by the hoppy bitterness. Love this stuff. Bought a growler of this a week ago, highly recommend it.
