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.

On tap at Press 195. Appearance is a bright clear amber color with a thin creamy head. Aroma is strong citrus: tangerine and grapefruit rind. Tastes much like one would expect from a double IPA. Definite citrusy notes in the flavor. Interesting palate. Hops attack right from the beginning with a strong bitter bite that fades quickly. No flavors stick out in particular. Somewhat of a boozy finish where you can very briefly taste the alcohol if youíre paying attention. Good beer. I drank it while eating food which may have cheapened the experience (from some reason I canít drink double IPAS with food). Iíd like to try this beer again by itself and in my own tulip glass. Good beer, I liked it a lot, but it didnít blow me away.

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.

wiwetu (41) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 18, 2015
Jedno z lepszych IIPA ever drunk. Mocna goryczka, w zupełności nie zalegająca, szybko znika. Aromat sosnowy, cytrusowy. Te nuty pojawiają się w smaku, z małym dodatkiem karmelu, ale odpowiednio wyważonym. Świetne piwo. Przy takim woltażu zaskakująco lekkie i mega pijalne. Tzw. zdradliwy skurwiel.

A great beer. Terrific IPA aroma and fresh taste. High bitterness and alcohol but still very easy to drink. Expected more sweetness and was happy not to find it. One of the best IPAs easily.

5/8/15 from bomber. Big 2 finger head on amber color. Not a strong aroma. Pine citrus spicy hop flavor. Balanced but leans toward malty. Not as good as Pliny the Elder. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very hoppy upfront aggressive aroma. Pine and spiced hops. Flavor with pleasant malts and huge hoppy taste and bitter.

Bomber - the aroma is a blast of citrus hops with a touch of maltiness. The appearance is perfect - clear golden amber, light & stable head, great lacing on the glass and great carbonation. Intense citrus bitterness with a hint of pine gives way to a malty body. A light herbaceousness couples with a millisecond of sweetness then followed by a long layered bitter hop aftertaste.

I WENT TO LIQUOR STORED LOOKINGS FOR PLINY (YEAH I LOVE IT) AND I ALL COULD FIND WAS THIS CRAPPY BEER FROM TIRE MAKERS. NO RUBBER TIRE FLAYVER LIKE OTHER FIRESTONES BUT, IT NEED MORE HOPS AND DEOS NOT TASTE ANYTHING LIKE PLINY. NOT AN IPA, AND I ONLY LIKE INDIAN STYLE IPASí. IT HAS GOOPY FEEL IN MY STOMACH AND LESS ALCOHOLS THAN A USUAL LAGER STYLE. IT; COULD USED 100PLUS MORE IUBís OR AT LEAST SOME MORE FLAVOR FROM HOPS. VERY BAD, I WARNED YU. YOUR WELCOME.
