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.

12oz picked up tonight at Brewer’s Haven for about $2.90ish. Great foamy lacing atop a crystal clear golden brew... Nose shows tropical fruit hoppiness.. melon and tangerine....slight bit of pale malt helps pull the hops up front... Surprisingly restrained hand on the bitterness... hop flavors though are the big player... wonderful... vibrant... Body is a solid medium... carbonation is about right... but could use a bit more bubble on the finish.... This is a huge winner... again, expensive for a DIPA, but I dig it... Very happy FW is making inroads into the Boise market.

Pours a clear golden orange color with a nice head and decent lacing. A blast of pine and citrus (grapefruit); this is definitely a hop bomb. More hoppiness. Pine and citrus flavor. Nicely carbonated, with a hoppy bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste.

ALLOVATE (2537) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 15, 2015
A delicious DIPA, from go to whoa, even given it was bottled last October. Cool and into a snifter. Appears to suffer from chill haze as it settles. A hazed, pastel orange with fine conditioning and short-lived, frothy, off-white foam. Big, bold and pungent, resinous hop nose displaying notes of grapefruit, tangelo, mandarin and stewed rhubarb amongst some pine sap, eucalypt, camphor and pot pourri - complex and deep. Ooooh, there is some artisanal balance here. Big fruit, plummy and jammy with all that aroma at play throughout. Oily with plenty of presence. Lightly bitter peak before more plump fruit in the finish as well as a kick from the alcohol to remind one they are drinking a strong ale. Carbonation is prickly, heightening all that is going on. This is a sumptuous, big IPA. I need to go out and grab a few more and settle in for the night. Delicious!! (12fl.Oz, bottled 30/10/14, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

chuckstout (305) - Washington, USA - APR 12, 2015
Big hop aroma pine and citrus, pours a clearance orange with dense pillowing off white head and great lacing. Light carbonation and and a smooth bitterness that increases through out the palette blending the citrus and pine along with a hint of alcohol before disappearing leaving you want another drink. Some nice malt character with a bit of rich bread and caramel sweetness to help roast round it out.

Pours deep orange sunset. Head is frothy white. Aroma of grapefruit, mango, citrus and light bready caramel. Taste is the same with tangerine and mango on the bitter finish. Good bright dipa. Most are malty. This is balanced on the hoppy side. Love it!

Bottle and tap. Had a long time ago for both. Remember they both were great. The tap Gave more citrus flavors, the bottle has a barrel aged taste to it.

THE best double IPA on the market, Firestone really hit a home-run with this one. Best of all, it’s available year round and is not hounded as a white whale (you know what I’m talking about w Pliny and Heady Topper)....while there are IPA’s that gleam higher stature, this one stands up to em all without one having to go crazy finding it.

Draft. Sunset-orange with brilliant clarity and a fuzzy off-white head. The aroma boasts wet grass, tangerine, mango, apricot, orange blossom and cotton candy; the flavor has lemon candies, orange cream, lavender and juicyfruit. The balance here is incredible and the fluffy medium body hides a good portion of the nearly double-digit ABV. Incredibly well-made, as is most everything Firestone does.
