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.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2014 What can I say? The most complex, fruitiest DIPA Iíve ever tasted, and the fruitiest unfruited beer Iíve tasted since Stille Nacht 1996 Reserve. Among the detectable fruity esters, there are grapefruit, mandarin orange, tangerine, peach, plum, agave nectar, cherry, mango, kiwi, lemon, lime, marion berry, and strawberry. The finish is luxuriously long, and that seltzer quality slightly dries out the finish, and really adds a sprightly tingle. Add to this a great malt backbone that has a fruitiness all its own with a substantial body (similar to Hercules, but not as syrupy and weighty). The floral hoppiness in this beauty almost rivals the Plinys, and after awhile a seltzery saltiness develops, and while Iím not normally a fan of seltzer, it works perfectly here, and leaves one craving another taste. Perfection.

This is a great beer. Has a sweet taste, followed by the hoppy bitterness. Love this stuff. Bought a growler of this a week ago, highly recommend it.

Tap. Golden with creamy white head-decent size, decent lacing, decent retention. Smells like I like it. Piney, grape fruity, resent, maybe a little passion fruity. Not a lot of sweetness in the nose. Grapefruit comes through in the flavor, followed by bitter. Not much sweetness here either. Nicer long hop finish, a bit warming, soft carbonation. Youíll put this up amongst the faves. Was just reminded of the 5 in the forums today- do here is one for me.

A great DIPA. Going broke between bombers of DIPA and six packs of the Union Jack.

Medium head. Crystal clear with a golden hue. Citrus and hoppy nose. Medium carbonation. Slightly sweet with bold hop flavor. Long dry and bitter finish.

Pours clear copper orange with a substantial white head. The aroma explodes with citrus and pine and a very subtle hint of light sweet malt. Taste is strong bitter, with some solid tropical fruit flavors. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Firestone Walker Double Jack IPA finishes with a spicy bitterness.

One of the best beers Iíve had this year! Fullness of the hop experience tempered with an ample dosing of malted sweetness. Aggressive assault from start to finish, though never unbalanced and never too much. Grapefruit, pine, resin, and even some caramel. Delish.

This to me could be the finest example for my taste buds of the perfect American IPA!
