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 clear with Amber color. Aroma is very rich in hop notes with clear citrus notes upfront along with lingering caramel, vanilla, musty, leather notes. Heavy bitterness with moderate sweetness. Full and smooth with long finish. One of the best imperial ipaís iíve had.

A very solid IPA. The prominence of the malt backbone is what stands out most to me about this one. Very hoppy beer with a malt backbone usually found in higher abv amber ales. The flavors and aspects play separate on the tongue, but still not in a way that isnít complimentary. Typical of a new school double IPA.

Maris (1265) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2016
From a 355ml bottle on 28/1/2016. Pours a clear medium golden with a medium bright white head. Has a quite bold aroma with big fruity hops coming over the top of dollops of caramel malt. Exquisite from the first sip. As suggested by the nose, this has a big caramel malt background, followed by oodles of honey, and sweet mandarin, apricot strawberry and peach. The bitterness is big - grapefruity and resiny - lingering long with a hint of spice at the back. Has a full rich, body, average carbonation and has lovely mouthfeel. Displays supreme balance and depth. Damn. This is seriously right up there with the very best beers Iíve ever tried. Truly magnificent.

Bottle at home. Pours a deep golden with a small white head. Aroma is mango, caramel, citrus, slight grass. Taste is big ripened pineapple, slight caramel, big bitter hop punch, citrus, long dry finish. Perfectly balanced with a big hop presence. One of my favourites.

Bottled. Nice clear copper color. Has a bold hop taste. To me it has a citrus hint. Has a floral hop upfront taste. Excellent imperial IPA

Dark golden pour with lingering small amount of white head. This is an interesting beer. Tons of citrus and malt in aroma and flavor. But the malt is manageable and adds some nice depth and alcohol to an otherwise typical IPA. The earthiness and citrus is excellent and makes it super drinkable.

Marduk (4776) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 22, 2015
660ml bottle (thanks Mart). Clear dark golden color. Medium size, white head, stays. Sweet, malty, melon, fruity, orange peel in aroma. Sweet, fruity, orange, citrus in taste. Harsh fruitiness in aftertaste. Alcohol is there I can feel it, but canít taste it. Fruity bitterness. Overstretched brew.
