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.

The best imperial IPA I have had to date. The color is a little misleading, due to the pale amber hue. One might expect a darker more ominous shade. The taste is surprisingly complex and yet subtle. One taste and I was singing it's praises. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cmacklin (447) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2015
12fl.oz. bottle. Pours a clear, golden orange with a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Fruity, hoppy aroma of grapefruit, tangerine, peach and caramel malt. Sweet fruity flavour of grapefruit, peach, pine and caramel malt with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. An excellent IIPA.

A really good IIPA, though a bit maltier than I prefer. Pour is orange, nice white head, nose is overwhelmed by pine and bitter citrus. Taste is sweet for the style, merging with piney hops for a tropical fruit effect: mango, pineapple, caramel and orange. Some booze, but balanced, and bitter finish. Very nice but I actually prefer the regular Union Jack.

hohops (545) - Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle. Appearance- amber and reasonably clear, some carbonation, a two-finger beige/off-white head which leaves some lacing. Aroma- pine, pineapple, mango, blood orange, citrus fruit, fruit juice, yeast, hops. Taste- bitter hops dominate, orange peel and pineapple juice, pine, juicy hop resins, malty undertones with hints of caramel and bread. Oily and clingy in the mouth, and a nice understated bitter finish. Excellent.

flying_pig (1158) - SCOTLAND - AUG 17, 2015
355ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow:
This one from Firestone Walker was quite a hoppy & very strong tasting beer with huge amounts of pine, grapfriut & tropical fruits before some nice caramel sweetness appeared towards the end. Despite the strength & some alcohol showing, it was easier to drink that expected & the balance was good as well with a dry, lingering bitter finish. Another excellent beer from the brewery & some well worth looking out for.

HoppyScallywag (128) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Great aroma. There's a slight citrus scent to it. Maybe an orange or grapefruit. Upon tasting, it's certainly grapefruit. It's not obnoxious, but the finish has on obvious grapefruit bitterness. I like this one. It has a nice hoppiness to it and it sits well on the palate. I would get this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good hop flavor for such a high ABV at 9.5, the alcohol is very well masked and not overpowering. Darker notes but still nice and piney. Good lacing if you care about that. The flavor sticks around on the tongue which makes for a long drinker. Very nice day drinker.

ZacM612 (326) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Draft at Claude Hopper's. Dark gold, clear with thin white head. Served a little too cold. Aroma is a little citrus and fruity. More malty than most, maybe because it's cold. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
