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.

MBrausen (69) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Reviewed from notes. Poured from a bottle into a CBS snifter. A. Pours a deep orange color with a 3mm head, rests after 30 seconds to some slight bubbles around the edge and a thin ring. Slight lacing on the glass. S. Smells of grapefruit, sweet and ripe orange peel, mild pine and lots of other citrus. T. Tastes if lots of grapefruit, tangy citrus, tart and sourness of the grapefruit coming through, slight bits of orange and a hint of pine. M. Medium body, mild carbonation, wet feeling and a hint coarse. O. A good beer. It wasnt anything out of this world. Ive had many better DIPAs. Its worth a try and tastes good, but not something to go searching for.

zimbo (743) - SCOTLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Fantastic dominant spiky pine nose. Clear pure chrystalline golden body with a thickish fluffy rocky head. Controlled but wickedly warped raw grapefruit like dry bitterness which cuts and aggressively cleans the palate. Great strength and suppleness.

Garrold (2362) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Clear gold. Thin, bubbly, white head. Nose is dank, and resinous. Lots of ripe orange. Peach juice. Some savoury in there. Taste has an initial hit of sweet, turning dank, oily bitter. Full bodied. Oily. Decent prickle of carbonation helps the drinkability. Sticky on the lips. Finishes long, resinous, chewy bitter, with that sweetness lingering until the end. Big and drinkable.

BuckeyeBoy (3276) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 28, 2015
12oz bottle pours out a golden topped with a nice head. Nose is great hoppy pine citrus and some sweetness. Taste is more of the sweetness hoppy combo. Wow this is a tasty treat and helped my hop need.

Nocturne (1082) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015
Keg at PSBH, Manchester. Golden/amber shade. White head. Slightly buttery caramel malt. Waves of interesting hops: grassy, spicy and floral. Not really fruity, however. Very bitter. Its big and the strength is easily felt, but it is well balanced. Not much wrong with it per se, I just prefer a softer and fruitier (I)IPA.

jamestulloch (1930) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle from Drinkmonger. Clear golden body with a white, fading head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of honey, orange, menthol, peach and pine resin. Flavour is very sweet - maple syrup and sugary tea - with a tangy, slightly peppery finish. Medium body with a very oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. This has a nice hoppy aroma and flavour from the dry-hopping but its low on hop bitterness. It goes down easy for 9.5% ABV. For me, its verging on Barley Wine territory.

Mjp12 (689) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Great DIPA , reall fresh hops on the nose, sherbet hits on the tongue, and the bitter finish slices through the 9.5abv. Great beer

Draft - FW has this down. Nice citrus, piney, and slightly floral hop aroma and taste. Super solid sweet malt back bone. So glad these are starting to come in 12oz bottles.
