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.

Bottle from House of 1000 Beers. Pours clear amber, egghell white head, fizzy and pillowy all at once. Flowery nose, with pine and citrus, sugary candy bubble gum, the cheap Double Bubble kind. Caramel backbone with flowery and earthy hop notes, same cheap bubble gum reference. Not very bitter at all for a DIPA. No lingering bitterness or astringency. Really scary at 9.5%. Only a touch of vaporous alcohol. Pretty solid.

Solid hop citrus body with a large malt backbone. Very easy drinking for a double IPA.

If there is a formula for a top end imperial IPA, this follows it. Clear orange/amber, with a small white head and lacing - check. Medium to full body, not too much carb, bit oily - check. Aroma of orange marmalade, peach and grapefruit - check. Flavour moves you from the fruit, through robust malt to a big bitter hit - check. If this sounds a bit too formulaic, well it’s a good formula, and there is a prominent taste of herbs which sets it somewhat apart. Good stuff.

jc1762 (530) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 17, 2016
Poured into a shaker showing well filtered honey brown. The nose shows light limes and not much else. The palate is moderately carbonated and medium bodied. Moderately intense flavors of lime and light malt with a strong alcohol spiciness throughout. Very strong bitterness on the finish.

Mal wieder ein IIPA das kurz vor der Perfektion steht. A VERY BIG ONE !!!! Wahrlich aggressive Frucht/Harz/Malz/Hopfenaromenattacken beschäftigen alle beteiligten Sinne. Trotzdem unfassbar rund. ALLMÄCHTIG !!!!! 0,6l/12 Euro vom Braufactumstand, beim Kieler Craft Beer Day 2016. Verköstigt dann mit Baby, Ratty & Chrille im Taxi und vor dem Medusa in Gaarden.

0.65l bottle. Courtesy of Lore. Slightly hazy orange body, white head. Aroma of bready malts, biscuit, honey, apricot, pine and floral hops. Taste of bread, floral and piny hops, toast, reisins and booze. Heavy IPA, but awesome for sure.
