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.

Tasted on 3/14/11 from a 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Lush West Town. Pours burnt orange with an average off-white head that slowly recedes to uneven lace. The nose is full of piney resin hops, tons of lemon peel, with caramel malt and just a hint of maple. The flavor has some sweet orange and caramel up front, moving to pine resin bitterness, a hint of soap, and chewable vitamins. The body is medium and somewhat sticky with average carbonation and a long bitter orange peel and resin finish.

Bottle sampled @ Firestone Walker Tasting. Thank you! BBF 10/04/2015. Golden, creamy white. Nose is yeast, citrus, thick dough, honey. Taste is honey, medicinal, citrus peel, caramel, faint pine, decent yeast body. Prob. too old, too yeasty & not really my thing. Okayish. “Instructions were not clear, got penis stuck in bottle.”

EdInSaltLake (652) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Citrus/rind, bitter hop aroma; sweet malt. Similar citrus hop flavor, plus a lot of pepper. Sweet, light caramel malt; not as sweet as the aroma -- I assume because of the strong bitterness? Nice melon-like fruity aftertaste.

Reviewed On: (6/22/14): *Glassware: IPA Tulip *Serving: 22 oz *Aroma: citrus, grapefruit, pine, tangerine, tropical fruits *Appearance: Pale Amber with a four finger head. The head has tons of fizzy big bubbles. The head color is off-white. It slowly receded to two fingers of head. Lots of carbonation streaming up to the head is probably why it stayed the way it did. After consuming the beer, a minor amount of lace was left behind. *Taste: Sweet malt upfront, citrus/grapefruit in the middle, and finishes off w/ a pine taste. *Palate: Medium body, oily mouthfeel, lively carbonation on the tongue. Finishes off very dry and bitter. *Overall: A well balanced and crafted Imperial IPA. It has the maltiness, bitterness, and dryness an Imperial IPA should have. An excellent offering from on of my favorite breweries.

"i was told this is an imperial version of Union Jack, which I’ve yet to have, but now may have to find. another very solid entry into the IIPA catergory. sweet fruity estery pine aroma, bittersweet grapefruit flavor. decent body - similar a bit, but thinner than Hop Henge. good stuff, easily the best FSW beer I’ve had to date. 2/11 gotta up it a tenth after holding up so well to the other great dipas at the festival. overall up to a 9."

Excellent XXIPA. Hoppy aroma and peppery hoppyn bitterness. Some alcohol catches me off guard. Overall great beer and will have again. Oh BTW it was in 12 oz bottle
