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.

Big bottle. Solid double IPA. Lots of citrus aroma, nice bitterness. Will be on my list when next in the USA.

I tend to find many of these American Double IPAs quite imbalanced, with the alcohol taking too strong a hold of the beer. This one however just about gets it right. Golden orange colour and a fantastic fresh fruity smell. The taste doesn’t disappoint, as a well made brew lets the high alcohol through without being overawed. Well done.

OnTheTrail (353) - Virginia, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Pours beautiful clear light golden orange. Medium light head. Aroma is intense tangerine grapefruit orange. Some pine. Tastes starts with fruit and malt, then bitterness comes out. The malt restrains the bitterness, until the finish when the bitterness comes through more. Mouthfeel is good. Taste may be a bit too bitter for me, and the alcohol is not completely hidden. But the appearance and aroma set thus beer apart.

First tasting in Italy and went straight to the top. Big resinous beer with loads of pine and tropical aromas and taste. Bitter from start to finish, great length and residual resin on the pallet reminds you of how good it was, and to go back for more!

Surprised to see this on-tap in Italy. Travelled well with the unmistakable big DIPA nose of stone fruits, mango’s pine. Deep yellow pour and small white head. Big body of resin / stone fruits and nice malt build. Solid length and lingering resin on the pallet.

75cl bottle split with SimonBlok. Pours a hazy orange with a slight shade of brown, mediocre off white head which deminishes to a thin soapy layer on top which leaves a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma of peach, grapefruit, orange, mango, pineapple, pine. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter with a medium dry finish which becomes sweeter. Notes of grass, hops, pine, honey, spices in the finish, floral, malt. Texture is oily, medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.

75cl bottle, thanks to Gyhallmanti. Appearance: hazy orangy golden with medium off-white head. Aroma: tangerine, grapefruit, orange juice, mango, pine, caramel. Taste: fairly high sweetness with high bitterness. Notes of tangerine, orange zest, tropical fruits, honey, caramel. Finish is bitter yet soft due to the sweet lacing it leaves on the tongue. The warmer it gets, the warmer the taste becomes. Palate: medium bodied, oily, but sticky texture and medium carbonation.

rubyroo (40) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 18, 2016
Aroma- guava, papaya, pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine Appearance- copper with very thick lacing. Thin sheet of persistent head. Taste- grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, pine, CarraMalt, booze. Palate- medium bodied, with above average carbonation finishes dry and bitter. Overall- fantastic DIPA. One of the best I’ve had. Balanced malt and hop profiles and manages to not be overly sweet or boozy. Recommended.

Nische (1885) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle from Beergium, bottled in june. Pours clear amber with creamy, white head. Aroma of piney hops, caramel, cake batter, some cereal grass and herbs. Aroma is sweetish cake/dough with floral notes, some herbs and spices and light piney hops. Would like to try this again a bit fresher. Quite decent though.

reebtogi (5682) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 12, 2016
Served in 12oz tulip glass at Beer Revolution in Edmonton, a copper color with a finger of white head leaving spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some hints of caramel and mild cereal grains. Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a light fruity and caramel malty sweetness. Full bodied brew with good carbonation that pleases the palate. Overall, a nice bold DIPA that is sure to satisfy most hop lovers out there.

DenverLogan (1098) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2016
From a 22 oz bottle into my North Coast Straght No Chaser chalice.. Pours gold-amber with head and lace. Aroma of grapefruit rind and zest, grains, amber malts. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of rich malts, straw hops, grapefruit rind, slight pine sap, bubbly fizzy wizzy hop juice. Overall big, bold, flavorful and somewhat tantalizingly fruity. Difficult for many, but "tastefully whip me more" for some hop heads.
